I made the gigantoid peanut butter oatmeal cookies for the first time last night and they are very yummy! I didn't actually make mine gigantoid, though.

Those are good! I've never made them gigantoid either. It ends up only fitting a few into the oven at a time, and sometimes I need all the cookies now!

Just wanted to comment on some of the things I've made. VWAV was my first vegan cookbook, and I feel I should say I few things which I liked..

The chickpea hijiki sandwiches are awesome. It's the recipe I know off by heart, and it really helps out my fishy cravings. I've made it dozens of times.

Scrambled tofu, it's a good solid recipe, which I pretty much follow each time I scramble my 'fu.

Fronch toast. This is something really special, it tasted just like what I remember french toast to taste like. Chickpeas can do anything I swear!

Strawberry shortcake, now I made these years ago but they went down a treat, I should really give these another go. But I remember it took a far bit of time and involved getting macadamias... which makes my purse hurt.

Orange glazed scones. I ALWAYS ALWAYS fork this recipe up, because it says you can use soya milk instead of creamer, and then proceeds to list soya milk as an ingredient. So then I throw in two lots of milk, and then I'm left with a soup, I should make a note to myself in the book, you'd think I'd learn.No. But by the time I rectify the problem and add extra dry ingredients, they turn out pretty good.

Jerk seitan- My boyfriend really liked this! I had never made anything like this before, and I was new to this kind of cuisine, but I found it really really delicious. Would have been better if I had made the seitan a little less rubbery!

Tempeh sausage and white bean gravy. LOVE THIS. Probably one of my favourites from the whole entire book. I normally make it with the easy biscuits from how it all vegan, because I never have any shortening lying around, and that recipe doesn't call for it but seriously that gravy is mind-blowing. I had never heard of biscuits an gravy being a thing (being a British gal) but now I go crazy for it. Also my tempeh hating boyfriend ate this no problem and LIKED IT. So tempeh haters - Make this!

I need to make more stuff from this book. I've made more from there, but I feel it was so long ago that I don't think I can recall most of how stuff tasted and how I really felt about it. I think I've made comments on this book before... *shrugs*

I've been craving the Pad Thai recipe from VWAV so I'll be making it for dinner. So good.

Yes, the Fronch Toast really is as amazing as I've heard. Believe the hype.

I made the bbq pomegranate tofu for dinner, haven't had it for a while but it's one of my favourite recipes from the book, so good! The coconut rice recipe to go with it is also yummy.

Yesterday I made the broccoli and olive version of the frittata. I added a few tablespoons of chickpea flour and some black salt.
It was really good and I ate the whole damn thing with pesto on top. I don't think it needed the chickpea flour but I'd just bought some so... Fronch toast is on the menu at some point!
Really want to make the pad thai, and also the udon noodle seitan peanut sauce thing. But I'm not a fan of udon noodles... they creep me out in the mouth, so might just try it with some rice.

My partner will be out of town for 10 days, so when this happens, I usually make food he (an omni) has no interest in eating anyways.

This time, I think I am going to try the Fritatta, and the BBQ pomegranate tofu. Flashback to my first vegan cookbook (and one of my favorites!). He also hates anything stroganoffy so I might make that too. I did once and loved it.

It's one of the few perks of cooking only for myself, I can make whatever I want! And cook naked. heh.

I made the fronch toast... it was alright but the chickpea flour made it a tad bitter. Is it possible I've got a bad batch of chickpea flour? I don't recall it tasting unpleasant.

Could someone send me the recipes for the big peanut butter cookies and the raspberry blackout cake in cups? I have the book but it's the UK edition so everything's in grams and I don't have a set of scales.

The No-Bake Black Bottom- Peanut Butter Silk Pie is probably one of my favorite desserts to make. Ever. Who doesn't love a peanut butter and chocolate combo? ;)

I made the veggie burgers today. I really enjoyed them. They fell apart a bit but it was mostly to do with me being clumsy.

made the veggie burgers. They tasted great but are quite fragile and fell apart easily. Might try with gluten flour next time, instead of the oat flour.

Try adding some ground black pepper (fresh or from a tin) to the ginger cookie. It sounds weird but it makes the cookies so amazingly spicy and perfect.

I got really lucky & got it from a charity shop for £4.99!
It had a electrical safety test certificate but no instructions. However I just turned it on, it heated up really quickly, I sprayed it with that 1 cal spray & the waffles took about 5 minutes. I had been looking on Amazon before that but everything seemed pretty pricey. Someone told me they have them in their Lidl or Aldi for £20 at the moment.

I just made these again yesterday, but I hadn't yet seen your message so I did not add black pepper. Oh, well, now I'll just have to make them once more the second I run out!

I've had this book for 7 or 8 years, and despite loving chickpeas and always looking for a new gravy recipe, I just made the punk rock chickpea gravy for the first time tonight. OH MAN. When I first tasted it as it was finishing cooking I thought it was alright but slightly disappointing. And then...something happened after I let it sit for a few minutes while finishing the other food. I could not stop eating it, and it was magical on mashed potatoes.

The miso gravy for the tofu and potatoes in gravy dish is easy and amazing. My omni husband loves it over everything, especially chxpea cutlets!
