    1. I take a head of cauliflower and put it in the food processor and chop it up until the size of "rice".

  3. I can't have squash. Do you think sweet potatoes would work as a substitute?

    1. No. Sweet potatoes are an E. Maybe try something like cauliflower?

    1. Either way is fine. I personally like to add as much as possible right away so I can just dump it in the crock pot and go.

  6. Is a bell pepper the same as a capsicum? I'm in Australia.

    1. When I looked it up it appeared to be the same thing. I learned something new. Thanks for asking. :-)

    2. The fruit of Capsicum plants have a variety of names depending on place and type. The piquant (spicy) varieties are commonly called chili peppers, or simply "chilies". The large, mild form is called red pepper, green pepper, or bell pepper in North America and typically just "capsicum" in New Zealand,[4] Australia, and India. The fruit is called paprika in some other countries (although paprika can also refer to the powdered spice made from various capsicum fruit).

  7. My boyfriend is not able to eat peppers because they cause him to have heartburn really bad...is there anything that could be used to substitute them or would you just leave them out?

  8. Just leave them out, easily done!

  9. if you "skin" the peppers by roasting or blanching it will help with the heartburn.
