    This is great! Definitely olive oil as needed, but super delicious. We also added roast onions and garlic and some left over broccoli. My non-cleansing partner also added feta, which he assured me was delicious. Great meal to serve unsuspecting non-cleansers :)

    This was good, I used California olives and enjoyed the flavor they added. Someone mentioned adding garlic cloves and I think that would go nicely with this dish and improve it.

    This was wonderful, BUT the olive oil was quite excessive. I ended up pouring it out into the sink from my plate. Next time I will add roasted garlic.

    This was delicious! Left out the olives because I don't like them, also only used half the amount of olive oil and it was more than enough. Added a couple of shallots and cloves of garlic and used cilantro instead of parsley because it's what I had on hand. I can't wait to eat the leftovers!

    Had this one on evening of day 3. Will have it again on day 4!!!
    It was so nice I have admit licking my plate clean...
    I didn't have full almonds but used powdered ones that I put in a pan on the fire without oil for about a minute.
    The combination of roasted veggies with the very fresh olive oil/lemon dressing is just amazing!
    I can very well imagine this as a side dish or on top of fresh pasta!

    I can't believe I'm enjoying my meals so much during a cleanse program!

    I didn't think I was going to like this since I am not a fan of cauliflower, but I have to say this was really tasty! It didn't look like it would be enough for me to eat and yet it was. Very satisfying!

    The roasted veggies were great and with the olives is was very satisfying and filling. I was not hungry after eating this meal. Cauliflower is such a misunderstood vegetable - need to buy more!

    Just made this and it is delicious! The sweetness of the bell peppers tossed with the cauliflower (@jenniealice - I agree, who knew cauliflower was so awesome?!) the crunch of the almonds just made this a great meal. I will definitely keep this in my dinner rotation well after the challenge ends.

    Yum! Are these recipes that good or am I just starving and thankful to be eating? I vote they are that good! I love how the flavors of the lemon and olives just pop. Very satisfying. I will continue to make this recipe and keep as one of my favorites.

    This is my favorite wk 1 diner. The olives give roasted veggies a punch of flavour and the almonds wonderful crunch. A+

    After having the cauliflower snack as well as this recipe on the action plan, cauliflower is my new favorite--so good! I added a pinch of cayenne and a shake of chili flakes to the dressing to spice it up, but I really like the complex flavors of this dish. I ate less than a full serving and feel satisfied and almost full. One note: I wish the nutrition facts were consistently included with each recipe on the plan.
