    @Barbara This is a great question. There are a few different types of carbohydrates, including starches, sugar, and fiber. The additional carb in this recipe is mostly coming from the vegetables in the form of starches. If you'd like more information on carbs, check out our new page on carbohydrates on diabetes.org: https://www.diabetes.org/nutrition/understanding-carbs We've also recently updated our book on carbohydrates and carb counting: https://shopdiabetes.org/products/complete-guide-to-carb-counting-4th-edition Hope this helps!

    Please can you explain the 35 total carbs? If fiber is 7 and sugar is 13 where does the 35 come from. I am new at using recipes. I am diabetic and kinda tired of my very plain way of eating. Thanks.
