We could try this... We would just have to omit the sweet potato and substitute white rice in place of brown... What do you think?

Hi TeniaB, if you want to make this dish, you need not leave out the sweet potatoes. If you don't have sweet potatoes, you can substitute it with other good substitutions like pumpkin, yams, butternut squash, any yellow/orange winter squash. You can substitute the brown rice with white rice or barley.
