    Hi Sharadha,
    I have finally typed in all the vegetables from the books I have on diabetes.

    beet greens
    bell peppers (red & green, not yellow)
    bok choy (Chinese cabbage)

    Also, I have come across this interesting substitute for regular rice. It is basically cutting or shredding cauliflower into very small pieces, approximately the size of rice, and then cooking it dry, until it is done to your liking. It looks like rice and acts the same way as rice, and absorbs the flavor, when mixed with sambhar for example. I made it using a metal grater and the florets turned out looking more like ‘rice’ than the stem. We tried this “rice” and thought it was pretty tasty! Next time I may just use a knife and chop it into really small pieces.

    Here is a link to it that I found on the internet.

    Also, here is another list of low-carb vegetables on the mendosa website. That seems pretty complete.

    And again thanks for your great recipes!
