The hash browns recipe is seriously the best hash browns! I've tried so many recipes but this one really does crisp up and taste just like diner hashies.

This just came in the mail yesterday. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for my husband, but I was so excited I made him open it right away. He loves diners/hole-in-the-wall places, so I'm sure we'll love this book!

I just got this book last week. I made the coffee cake on Sunday for my family and everyone was impressed. It was so delicious I could have eaten it all myself! Or at least I would have tried if there weren't so many people there. If you are looking for decadent buttery coffee cake recipe, this is it! I'm looking forward to trying other recipes from this book.

I just broke in my new panini grill with the no-tuna melt sammich. It was deeeeelish, and the first recipe using soy curls that I've liked. I added a little daiya for extra cheesy goodness but it would have been fine without it.

I'm about to make the incrediburgers - just a quick question about the recipe (i searched, so my apologies if this has been answered).

The instructions say to add everything up to the VWG but then never mention anything abotu the veg broth. I'm about to just add it right into the mix unless i shouldn't. Help!

thanks.

and also, while i'm asking questions- is instant tapioca the same as tapioca starch?

Remonster, it's an error in the recipe! Include the broth. And instant tapioca is like minute tapioca, just a goofy name. Hope you like the burgers.

Thanks to everyone who posted here about the book. <3 the PPK!

I am bumping this thread simply because of the Savory Stuffed French Toast with Mustard Shallot Sauce. It was fantastic and actually very simple and unbelievably delicious! Between boyfriend and I we ate 8 pieces (ok the toddler got a small piece too) and still wanted more. I made the ham seitan recipe from the Caribbean Vegan blog (which is ridiculously good, by the way) the day before and we used that, and a pear. Wow. Also, the sauce reminded me of a simple hollandaise and I could definitely see myself making that for other dishes as well.

in addition, I made the Savory Wheat Meatloaf last night. The taste was wonderful (not unlike the beloved Incrediburgers) but my damn oven was running over 100 degrees hotter than it should be, so I spent a bunch of time trying to keep the oven door open etc and in the end, it baked up fairly crusty but not burnt on the outside but the texture inside was a little squishy, like it had been steam-baked. I will definitely try it again. Ugh my forking oven drives me crazy, sometimes it works reasonably fine and other times I set it for 300 degrees and it goes up to 450 and refuses to cool down grrrr.

I just made the Handitos and they were really good! I subbed the VV white seitan.

The seitan recipe is also my favorite darker style seitan for subbing in omni recipes.

Call me dense, but is instant tapioca the same as tapioca starch? I'd like to make the ribz but want to make sure I have the right ingredients.

Just a suggestion, people: MAKE THE AVOCADO WEDGES. That is all.

Oh yeah, the ribz are fantastic. Also, the burger buns are a staple here now, and the chili! (Oh, the chili. I first made it for picky omnis, and they ALL liked it.)

I just got this (I know!) I have only looked at the pictures so far, but damn... if I'd seen the pics sooner, I'd have bought the book sooner. Everything looks incredible. I can't wait for next week's Cookbook Challenge!

I'm in love with this book. I've had it since Dec, but haven't made anything and now I've been cooking out of it all weekend for the cookbook challenge. Some of the ingredient lists are lengthy, but I've found all the recipes to be well-worth the time and effort so far.

You must try the coconut bacon bits!

Ha, that's one of the very few things I haven't tried! (I tested about 120 dishes for this book; some didn't make it in but I've probably made another 15 since testing closed). It feels like an extra leg or something, for me.

Hi guys,

I'm grilling up the incrediburgers tonight. Does anyone know if these can be safely done on a George Foreman Grill (provided that I oil the burgers per the recipe). The patties seem pretty firm, but I don't want to take a chance on ruining them.

Thanks.

The toasted ravioli is sooooo good. My family is from St. Louis and this is a dish that I associate with childhood and wasn't sure if I'd ever taste again. They taste just like I remember them! I was so happy I almost cried.
