Needless to say, this was another case where I thought the original picture needed some help. I won't even tell you what I think the first picture looks like to me - let's just say it rhymes with "comet." I think that original picture didn't do this dish justice at all. It really is a tasty and easy meatless dish - and it's very economical - the picture just left a lot to be desired! I can't imagine anyone looking at that first plate and saying, "I want some of that" ..... and for anyone who looked beyond the picture and pinned it or tried it based off the ingredients, I appreciate it! :)
I have actually posed that question - how important are pictures when determining whether to try a recipe or not - to my readers. I would say there was about a 60/40 split - with 60% of my readers saying that pictures are indeed important ..... the other 40% mostly based their opinion on the ingredients list or ease of preparation.
I'm hoping that by revamping the picture for this dish, it will bring it some new interest - maybe the 60% who may not have given this dish a second thought with that horrible picture, will look at this one and at least give it a second chance! ;) If you'd like to get the recipe, you can find the original post HERE.
