This is just soup. Quit it with the “liver detox “ BS. Your liver doesn’t need a detox unless you have a serious medical condition (in which case, eating this soup won’t help) nor will 3 days of “clean” eating do anything other than give you something to post about on social media.

Food52 should be embarrassed with peddling this pseudoscience garbage. It's like an exercise in how to make yourself irrelevant.

Instead of tossing the ingredients on a baking sheet, I’d suggest combining the ingredients together in a bowl, mix gently so everything is nicely seasoned and oiled, and then deposit the mixture onto the baking sheet.

It’s a soup, not a “cleanse”…

Not sure what kind of oven you used to roast the vegetables, but mine were not even close to being done after 20 minutes at 330°, I had to up the temp and add more time.

Very good. Used water from cooking lentils. Needed more stock, and lemon juice.
