    How much onion and how much flax oil? They're mentioned in the directions, but not in the ingredient list. - 10/17/14

    Recipe omitted the amount of onion so I put in 1/2 med. onion. After baking 15 minutes I tossed it and added the walnuts and returned to oven. I tasted it warm and it was delicious. I was ok with the dressing but my DD preferred it without. So it can be served warm or cold, with or with dressing. - 10/18/14

  • It looks like they also tossed in pumpkin seeds and are those white dollops some kind of cheese? I know this sight likes to present attractive dishes, but adding things that are not in the recipe really doesn't help.

    I don't see olive oil or flax oil listed in the ingredients but they are in the instructions. These are high calorie items. Not a good recipe construct IMO. - 10/17/14

  • I don't see onion listed in the ingredients but it is the directions. I am guessing about 1/2 a large onion or 1 small peeled and sliced? - 10/19/13
