I'm sorry, but these were really bland and unflavorful. As I was making it seemed like I a little salt should be added, but I went against my instincts & followed the recipe exactly & it was totally bland. On the plus side, the texture was nice and it was pretty quick to make, esp. since I was in need of something in a jif to dunk into a soup I'd already made for dinner. (Immersed in the soup they took on flavor, but on their own they really taste like nothing.) I don't *think* I'd ever make again, but if I did I'd definitely add salt, and probably something else as well for some flavor (herbs? a spice? some shredded cheese? garlic? I don't know..). Sorry :-(
