Quiet, mellow flavors. Perfectly understated, just as I like it, just as I wanted it. Well balanced combination of the flavors, and I particularly liked the additions of nutmeg and lemon juice, which I didn't measure, just added to taste, probably less than what was called for. The turmeric gives the orzo a brilliant yellow color which, in combination with the green kale (I used arugula because I grow it), gave this a striking appearance. (Note to self: this might make a great dish for a Green Bay Packers party with its vivid colors of green and gold!) Other than seasoning to taste rather than adhering strictly to the given measurements, I wouldn't change this recipe at all and have absolutely no criticism. It's lovely.
