    Is it just me or does this make WAY more than 2 servings of lentils? I think next time I make this I'll cook the onion, carrot & celery as described in a pan, and cook the lentils in the cleanse broth on their own. Combine all ingredients at the end. That way the veggies aren't so over done.

    This looked like a bowlful of jewels and tasted spectacular! I saved the drained liquid to use as a broth base in other recipes. I loved one of the other reviewers' suggestions of adding a splash of red wine and will try that one day. Also, the recipe claims this yields 2 servings, but it was more like 4 for me: I couldn't eat it all!

    This was a great recipe! Started the week of well and leftovers were tasty, too. I added mint an dreally thought it helped add something special.

    This was great! I let the lentils cook and then started on dinner. We ate it the next day for lunch. Filling and tasty. I'll definitely make again.

    I'm delighted by this recipe. I served it to my husband, who is not doing a detox, and he also loved it. This will be part of our regular rotation, I'm sure!

    I absolutely loved this salad...or perhaps I was very hungry. The toasted almonds really give this salad a kick; not to mention the salad dressing. I wouldn't change anything. It's deliciously crunchy!
