I will start by saying that I rated this a 4, because I did not prepare/eat it as the directions state, so i'm not sure how it would taste if done "correctly". Let me elaborate- I decided to cook up the vegetables and use it as a topper to my salads for the week. I made it without rosemary or spinach, I used red onion, and it had no chicken broth (as that would have made it too soupy for a cold salad). I refrigerated the mix overnight and then put a portion of it on top of my spring salad mix. It was super delicious that way, if you want a nutritious cold bean salad!
