I made the penne vodka with the garlic toast tonight. It was pretty great! That garlic toast is good because it has like a pound of margarine on it, but meh, that's fine with me!

I love the bolognese in this book, but my husband made the bean/walnut/flour mixture into meatballs instead of sauce, and holy shiitake good. I think he left out the milk and sugar, but otherwise just formed that mixture into balls, then fried and baked them.

i've wanted to try this but thought they might come out mushy? I also thought about adding a little gluten...


They weren't mushy! He fried them to crisp up the outsisde and baked for like 20-30 minutes.

Oh man, the peanut noodles got rave reviews from my husband tonight. I also added some stir fried red bell pepper, snow peas, and baked tofu to make it a little bulkier and I used whole wheat linguine noodles. With a drizzle of sriracha on top, it was a perfect and easy dinner.

Tonight for our Easter dinner I made quite a few things from the book. Two news things were Orange tofu (didn't use coating and fry, just dry fry) and banana cupcakes with lemon icing. I found the tofu very sweet and very orangey, maybe a little too much on both accounts. I thought this recipe was just okay, maybe it would have been better if I followed the recipe as written. The cupcakes were amazing. So flavourful, moist and light, seriously yummy. The icing was just okay, more like a glaze and too sweet (I do realize it's icing but the powdered sugar taste was too strong). I will definitely make the cupcakes again and eat them as is without the icing or with another icing recipe.

I love the Yoga Cookies! They have a lot of oil (I used slightly less than the recipe called for) but I think it's totally worth it. I used the agave option. Everyone who has tried one loved it.

The fettucine alfredo is ah-mazin'.

I sliced the few old mushrooms I had kicking around my fridge and stir fried them before adding the sauce and heating through. Oh and I didn't have fettucine, only spaghetti. So I used that...Spaghetti alfredo, I guess.

Still delish and will definitely be making again.

For those of you who've made the Peanutty Perfection Noodles, do you think it would still be tasty if I substituted the peanut butter and peanuts with cashew butter and cashews? I'd love to try the recipe but unfortunately I can't eat peanuts.

YES. That will totally work and be super delicious.

I can't believe I missed this post <3<3

I have a friend borrowing the book (well, going on months now, but it's okay) but I will make this famed garlic toast it's returned.

Thanks so much, Bodhi! I look forward to making them!

Quoted for truth! Somehow I didn't have AP flour on hand so I used whole wheat pastry flour instead. Even so they were still perfect!!

Whenever I make them I use 1 1/2 cups AP and 1/2 cup regular whole wheat flour and they always taste amazing. In fact I have never tried them using all AP flour. The whipped maple butter is REALLY REALLY good with these.

I made the Bolognese a while back that everyone seems to love. I think I messed it up somehow though, because it was NASTY. I can usually eat at least my serving (maybe not leftovers) if I flub something up, but this went straight in the garbage. I may try a half batch again another time, because I'm sure I just did something wrong.

We had the Double Double Drive-thru Burgers last night. Super good! We did the brown rice variation, instead of tempeh. The texture was good, the special sauce was good. All delicious. I only ate one at dinner, but I kept thinking about it all evening and how I should have assembled a second before I put everything away!

Ooooh, I never noticed a maple butter recipe! Imma have to get on that!

I've been eyeing the double double recipe a while. Glad to hear they're yum! Since going veg I know my husband really misses In n Out burgers. It would make his day if I could replicate his beloved double double!

I made the mac & cheese last night as part of a comfort foody plate with smokey grilled tempeh & steamed kale. It was really good! I don't know about "best ever," but pretty dang close.

The peanut noodles are so easy and tasty, they will be a weekly meal in our house I'm sure. Love them!

I made the Mongolian Seitan again. Made it once before with tofu, and I remember liking it. This time though, I just found it okay. I wonder if my hoisin sauce isn't the best? I've liked it in other things, but this recipe just tasted unexciting. And sadly, my seitan was super gross. It tasted like bread. Gravy-soaked bread with hoisin sauce. I don't think I will buy that kind again.

Really loved the burgers we made from the book though. Will probably make them again, and save a bit to make into baby-sized burgers for my wee one. The ingredients are pretty wholesome!

Haha! I'll go with almond butter and whole cashew nuts. :-)

I made the Pancakes for Dinner for breakfast this morning and they were great but I could taste the baking powder; has anyone else had this problem?

Actually this is one recipe from this book I don't think I'll make again. I thought there was way to much baking powder and they got "too fluffy". I have made much better vegan pancakes.

I definitely prefer Isa's Perfect Pancakes from VB, but the nice thing about Chloe's recipe is that there's no milk. I use a carton of almond milk so infrequently that it goes bad before I use the whole thing, and Chloe's just use water so it's much less wasteful for me.

If you go to Allrecipes and search vegan pancakes the top recipe that appears is really good and only uses water. I add a teaspoon of cinnamon and vanilla but other than that I follow the recipe and the pancakes turn out perfectly. They are my go to for quick easy pancakes that my whole family loves.
