I couldn't fairly rate this. This is very difficult to make. The dough is not easy. "

Okay. Nothing that special. I found the dressing to be a bit too much and made an almost identical salad next time around just using lemon and honey with a bit of olive oil, omitting the vinegar and pepper.

Soup was okay, but vegetable soups by nature aren't all that super flavorful. I didn't find this to be an exception to that rule. If you want the super nutrients in kale, go ahead and use it, but I've had more success with spinach. The butternut squash was okay too, but have had more success with sweet potatoes. My ONE direct change to this re"
