I bought Vegan Eats World long ago, but didn't do anything more than flip through it for months! This summer, I committed to actually cooking from it, no matter how intimidating I find some recipes! I've cooked about 20 recipes so far and photo-documented a handful of those. I'm hoping to continue cooking my way through as much of the book as possible. Enjoy the food porn!

Chapter 4: Salads, Spreads & Sandwiches:

Nice! Those samosas are calling to me. How were the poached pears?

I feel intimidated by that book since there are hard-to-find ingredients and the recipes take time. But it sure looks absolutely delicious, especially the dumplings.

The poached pears were quite simple, but incredibly tasty! I'd love to try the variations to go with other meals.

The filo samosas are definitely the item I'm most eager to make again!

I'm hoping to make some more VEW recipes over the next couple of weeks.

Everything looks lovely!

I find Vcon a bit intimidating still because of the hard to find ingredients, and it sounds like VEW is even worse in that respect so I haven't bought it or put it on my wishlist. Your pictures are a,ing me think otherwise!

Everything looks great!
Those ginger marinated veggies are very easy to make and supper tasty. I also didn't think the pad Thai was challenging, and it was really satisfying to make it for myself.
How did you like the tofu hijiki burgers? I've been eyeing that recipe but haven't gotten around to trying it yet.

I wasn't crazy about the tofu burgers, which is too bad because I've had the burger at Dojo upon which the recipe was based and loved it. In general I don't love any tofu burger (I prefer legumes in my burgers!), so it could be just me! I baked them, but I bet they would have been more delicious fried in a ton of oil!.
