Has anyone made the hazelnut scones? What is hazelnut coffee? I'm so confused. I own the UK version of the book, I might add, maybe that has something to do with it? But I've never heard of hazelnut coffee and I live in the UK!


i am not a coffee drinker, but i found this link. i honestly don't know if this is "good tasting" coffee but most usa supermarkets carry it.

another link

i'm guessing both brands of coffee grounds have hazelnut flavor.....perhaps it's easier to use flavored coffee rather than finding hazelnut extract you know like vanilla extract?

it's just hazelnut-flavored coffee. they have it at Whittard and you should be able to find it at some supermarkets. or just use regular coffee. i'm sure it'll be fine either way.

I have a British edition, and the recipe for Tofu dill salad sandwiches doesn't list any dill. Does the American edition list dill? I happen to have fresh dill in the fridge. I know there are dill flavoured mustards, but, I'm not sure where I'd seen them.

That's a typo! I think it uses 1/3 cup fresh chopped dill. My book is upstairs and I can't get up there right now, but I'll check later when I can if somebody else doesn't first.

I'd add the dill to taste though since dill is sometimes kinda wimpy. I end up adding more, plus a bot of extra Vegenaise.

Thank you! I'll add it to taste, then. I love dill.

Fronch Toast (even though it smoked the fork out of my kitchen) was so good! The tempeh and white bean sausage patties were a bit mushy, but I can deal with it. Next time, I will add some wheat gluten to firm them up a bit, maybe.

The Chipotle, Corn, and Black Bean Stew was pretty good! I was afraid it would be too boring, but the chipotle helps a lot. I used broth instead of water and added more salt, of course. I also topped it with avocado, scallions, and crushed tortilla chips. My only complaint was that there were too many potatoes, but I'm not a huge potato person. If I make it again, I'll halve the amount of potatoes and double the amount of carrots!

It was just so amazing, mmmmm.

I made the Moroccan Vegetable Tagine last night and it was delicious! I was worried that the cinnamon would be overpowering, but I guess since it wasn't powdered that it was ok! It needed more salt, and I topped it with sriracha, but the flavors were great. Loved all the veggies, too.

I did the ginger roasted winter vegetables tonight and my Fatman loved them.
I just had a plateful of them, pure heaven.
Yesterday I made the Silky Chickpea gravy and that was lush.
Wish I'd found these books (VWAV and AfR) sooner. So good.

I made the black bean, mushroom and quinoa stuffed peppers and cajun fries for dinner today. I used hot chilli powder for the peppers so I could have done with plain fries rather than cajun fries but it was still pretty good. The stuffed pepper was incredibly filling so I might serve with a salad instead the next few nights.

Hey y'all! Would anyone be able to PM me the recipes for the pizza dough, the pizza sauce, the pesto, the basil-tofu ricotta, and Isa pizza? I'm making it on Saturday and totally forgot my book at home, and am currently staying at a family friend's. It'd be much appreciated!

i plan to make the chickpea-hijiki salad sammiches tonight for dinner (page 106) except i'm leavin the hijiki part out, so it will just be like a chickpea "egg salad" sammich rather than "tuna fish."

i'm not sure i'm keen on using a potato masher to mash up all the chickpeas. i was thinking, although it would be a bit more time consuming, simply to cut each chickpea in half. i thought it might be nice to have a bit of texture in the chew rather than it being more mushy squishy???

anyone else make this?

i've made it once or twice. it's good, but the texture of the hijiki is a little weird, so i'd probably use nori instead. no idea what it would be like the way you're planning it, though.

Mashing chickpea with a potato masher definitely still leaves a lot of texture! At least, my masher does. The thought of you cutting each chickpea in half is making me cringe.

I think it'll be just fine, a bit tamer than the not-deviled egg (chickpea) salad from vegan sandwiches save the day. i'm confident that leaving out the hijiki will still make this a tasty sandwich.

yeah, that was a bit of a crazy idea. my hubby would prefer a softer texture so i'm definitely going to use the potato masher.

The Marinated Tofu with the Asian flavors is soooo good! I keep putting it on giant salads for my lunches and it is just addictively scrumptious.

also: my crust burned. i blame the cornmeal.

I made the stroganoff last night (using the seitan recipe from Veganomicon). I left out the mushrooms and subbed a cup of cranberry juice for the red wine (with a dash of vinegar). My kids really liked this. I was surprised, because when I added the ½ cup nooch to the sauce, I wasn't sure it was going to work; it smelled kind of funny. But work it did. I might go home from work and eat the leftovers!
