Do we realize that on Ellen's vegan healthy eating meals, that before the video starts is a gross meat laden commercial for Carnival Cruises????

This is a great recipe. The idea of using lentils in a salad to detox is a clever way to get all the necessary protein and minerals without ingested fat and other nasty substances. Besides that, a lot of people feel they have to starve themselves in order to detox. That is simply not the case and can be very damaging to the body. I think it is necessary for all of us to detox once in a while to let the body excrete its toxins. The feeling afterwards is wonderful, but you have to know how to detox healthily. To find out how to detox appropriately, have a read through the link -

I have been a vegetarian for 22 yrs. and a Vegan for about 5yrs. I love that you have Vegan Chefs on your show. I bought Roberto Martin's book and love his recipes. I shop for Vegan shoes and handbags when I can find them. I loved the Vegan Coach bags you gave away, but they were as costly as the leather (out of my league). Thanks for coming into my home everyday and making me laugh and sometimes cry. Love and Admire You Sheri Wands P.S. I think your hair is so cute short especially when you go back and show clips when it was longer. Portia's hair is really cute short.

I can't wait to make this recipe - I just printed out the recipe and was so disappointed that the recipe is not like the one demonstrated on T.V. today - It says nothing about chopping up the veggies and sauteeing in olive oil and the topping has ommitted the black mustard seed in the topping that Padma used. Is there a reason for this? I will make the recipe because it sounds lo yummy but I just watched the video again and I will do what Padma did on T.V. instead of following the written recipe. Darn! Wish I knew how many black mustard seeds to use! No mention at all in the recipe.

Thank you for featuring Padma Lakshmi on the show. Can't wait to read all of her recipes. This is the kind of cooking and eating that I really like and it looked delicious.
