    I found the speeds and timings to be a little off, but easily tweaked. This recipe tastes like Spring - beautiful balanced green vegetable flavours. Not for people who aren't in love with vegetables, but an excellent option for people who are trying to like them more (ie, my MOTH) tmrc_emoticons.)
