|Amy's Roasted Vegetables in a Pocket Sandwich

For the life of me, I couldn't find a pic for this, and since I'm at work, I can't take one.
ETA: found the pic:
What Amy's says: "...organic shiitake mushrooms, roasted red peppers, sweet onions and marinated artichoke hearts in a handy-to-hold, easy to eat, pizza-style crust."
nutritional information: no dairy, no cholesterol. 230 calories, 8 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 480 mg of sodium, 4 grams of dietary fiber, 6 grams of protein.
I've been nervous about this pocket. Until this time, I haven't found an Amy's pocket I REALLY like (including the spinach feta!).
I wasn't too terribly hungry but I wanted something, so I decided to give this a try.
The crust was awesome again -- soft with crisp edges. There are instructions on the box to bake it for more crispness, but I didn't feel like waiting. Maybe I will next time because the crusty parts were awesome! I was immediately excited by the smell from the microwave: It was VERY much like Chinese food. The contents are not very visually appealing, but the aroma totally makes up for that. I've never been a mushroom fan, but I didn't realize they were in there (maybe because they were shiitake?) and the vegetable insides were really tasty. The only thing I think was missing was carrots. Maybe it's because I wanted it to be more like Chinese food. Maybe it's because I wanted an added crunch. Whatever it is, I think the lack of carrots holds back my rating slightly.
I give this meal 4 out of 5 stars for having an awesome taste but lack of crunchy carrots and a small portion size. I will probably get this again.
