This is one of my favorite cookbooks. Here is what I made during the month I concentrated on it. I was able to make a lot since I had my vacation during that time. But there are so many more recipes I want to try.

Dahl makhni (creamy and good):
Image

Picnic sandwich (I really ate it at a picnic, yeah!):
Image

Corn fritters (delicious, especially with home-made rhubarb ketchup):
Image

Creamy tomato-basil pasta (I looooove this):
Image

Corn chowder (I'm not used to raw corn, even as a garnish, otherwise this soup was delicious):
Image

Sweet and sour tofu (among the best tofu dishes I ever ate):
Image

Spicy tomato-chickpea soup (good and quick to make):
Image

Smoked tofu (good):
Image

Broccoli-dahl soup (I didn't like it before I put it in the blender, but after that I found it good - I like smooth soups):
Image

Seven-spice udon (a quick go-to recipe; I especially like it to substitute grated broccoli stalks for the carrots and brussel sprouts to avoid wasting them):
Image

Yaki onigiri (I stuffed them with umeboshi paste):
Image

Aloo matar (good but it asks for a lot of different spices):
Image

Alfredo pasta (this one I didn't like, I found it too salty and liquid):
Image

Donuts (worth buying a donut pan for, and both fun and easy to decorate):
Image

Strawberry-rhubarb coffee cake (good but much too sweet for a coffee cake for my taste):
Image

Blueberry tartlets (so pretty):
Image

It all looks delicious. I especially want the dahl and the creamy tomato basil pasta.

I use an onigiri mold: http://www.jbox.com/product/CHP167

I clumsily shaped them by hand for years but this really works better and faster without any waste of plastic wrap.

Tartlets look yummy. I was just looking through this cookbook yesterday and wanted to make this. By the way, have you tried the black-bean burger recipe? These are by far my favorite bean burgers. I have made then probably more than 30 times over the years.
