How a diabetic could enjoy this wonderful recipe My husband is diabetic – only a bit but it is enough.
I would love to make this recipe but I try to avoid using any sweetener at all. I want to try it for the Yomim Tovim when I relax my strict standards a bit – it is Yom Tov after all but how could this be delicious year round – my husband cannot tolerate any sharp spices and I want it to be tasty. I just recently read how beneficial butternut squash is and I would love to add it to my repertoire of recipes.
Thank you very much for this wonderful site with such delicious recipes

Great This is YUM. I added salt at the end. I also subbed a mixture of bulgur and white rice for the wild rice as I did not have.
