    The carb amount here is not that rare. Rice is incredibly high in carbs. If one is like me, I can devour rice until the bowl is clean.

    I don't think I've ever seen a recipe with this high a carb count. Given what is in the recipe, it is nearly impossible to figure where all those carb come from in just one serving!
