- Taste: How is the taste, texture, and overall eating experience?
- Accessibility: How expensive is the dish? Are the ingredients found everywhere or just in specialty grocery stores?
- Ease of preparation: How long does the dish take to prepare? How difficult is preparation?
- Non-vegan friendliness: Does this dish appeal to non-vegans?
So, for instance, a dish that tastes great, has inexpensive and easy-to-find ingredients, is easy to make, and attracts vegans and non-vegans, alike, would receive four carrots in each category--the highest rating.
