My brain is too frozen at the moment to think of the dozens of Isa recipes we make all the time BUT just last night we had a family favorite - Pomegranate tofu with coconut rice! So, so good.

I LOVE the trattoria pasta salad from AFR. I usually leave out the fennel, use lentils instead of beans and add dry-fried smoked tofu. I had it twice today and yesterday.
The balsamic vinaigrette, tomato walnut dressing, and the romesco dressing are really nice to use on salads.
The Chana Masala from the blog is amazing and the Broccoli Curry Udon from the blog is lovely and easy! So is the lentil taco meat, actually.
I really like the basic baked tofu from AFR, but bake it for longer.


The Cashew Vegetable Korma is not low calorie, but it is so delicious that I have to mention it anyway. I think I would be happy eating it everyday.

Yum! This sounds like a great couple of subs. I've made that salad a number of times and love it. I always skip the fennel (not a fan) but kept the rest the same. I'm going to make it now with lentils and tofu. Could be an entire meal. I also made this for a gluten-free omni subbing in quinoa pasta once and he absolutely loved it. I had to give his wife the recipe.

One recipe in regular, and I mean *regular*, rotation in our house is the fudgy, wudgy, blueberry brownies in Veganomicon. Could be me favorite brownie recipe ever.

oh gawd how do you choose one?

Appetite for Reduction is my favorite cookbook. mine is battered, bruised, and splattered.
i LOVE the curry laksa from that book. that might be my favorite but there are so many great recipes in there.
the hottie black eyed peas and greens introduced this yankee to the yumminess of black eyed peas and collard greens. i put the red hot tahnini sauce from somewhere on the blog on it (forget the exact name of it)
the lotsa lentil soup is super flavorful and i took a long time before i made it because i thought it would be bland but it's not its soooo good.

ive been cooking my way through Isa Does It and it's rivaling AFR for favorite cookbook. the Pizza Bowl recipe is soooo good (though i dont find it to taste anything like pizza)
the kale and butternut squash salad is super good
im blanking on the other ones from that book that i like. i think the queso blanco bowl was another favorite.

it would be way easier to list the recipes i dont like cause i can probably count them on like half a hand.

the dessert trifecta are my go to books for baking because i find when i deviate from those books i have mixed results but those books seem to always produce good results

Yeah, I never bought another dessert book after those, because why?

Edit: Not technically true. I bought Pies and Tarts with Heart, but that has savory pies too.

Geez, too many to count. Recipes I love that have NOT been mentioned yet (I don't think...)

Sun dried tomato and mushroom risotto from VWAW. my go to fancy impressive dinner.

Mexican Millet from VCON. Add corn and black beans at the end and it's a one pot meal.....that lasts like a week.

The Caesar Chavez dressing from AFR. worth the price of the book for that recipe alone. The eggplant bacon is badass as well

Thai Basil Green Beans from AFR. I put dry fried tofu or tempeh in at the end for a full meal. Omni partner loves that dish. Making it this week in fact!

The Dragon Noodle Salad might be my favorite from IDI so far. Dat peanut sauce.

The romesco dressing from AFR is probably my all-time favorite dressing, and the red-hot tahini sauce from the blog is probably my favoritest sauce.

For dishes, I'm really loving the Dilly Stew with Rosemary Dumplings from IDI. Ooh, and the Everday Pad Thai from IDI. I could eat both of those for life and be content.

The Chocolate Chip Cookies from VCIYCJ and the Sparkled Ginger Cookies from VWAV are hands-down my household's go-to cookie recipes. Yum.

Those sparkled ginger cookies are so good. And so easy... seriously a foolproof recipe.

The crepes are so versatile. My preschooler and I made them yesterday and they were so fun to flip and she happily ate anything I stuffed into them. They are superyum.

Veganomicon was made with Terry H. Romero, not by Isa alone though!
For example, I know that the greek lemony potatoes from Vcon some people love (I do too!) were created by Terry, because there's a slightly modified recipe in Vegan eats world.
