Calculating around 33 grams for the whole recipe.

Divided by 4 = 8.25 carbs.

You could substitute spinach or chard but would need a lot more since 10 oz of spinach cooks down to about 2 servings. I think this recipe would serve 4.
Most people use www.fitday.com to calculate nutritional values of their recipes. Spinach and chard are zero countable carbs.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
