Miyoko Schinner's new book -- with an intro by Isa -- is available for pre-order on Amazon. For some reason, Amazon.ca has a preview but Amazon.com doesn't (yet). Flipping through the preview (including drooling over the contents) convinced me to pre-order and now I'm already feeling impatient. Aaaahhhh, cannot wait but must!!

Edited to add: What lures me into this book is that Miyoko provides the building blocks for dishes, the foundation for meals and I love this kind of book. Between this and the Vegetarian Flavour Bible, I'm going to have so much fun this summer!

I mentioned in the Upcoming books of 2015 thread that it looks beautiful, I just know that I am not the type of person to make my own staples. So I'll be envious if you are :)

1. I made vegan butter. Seriously, this stuff tasted like butter. Crazy.

2. The barbecue sauce is excellent. My favourite homemade BBQ sauce yet. I subbed blackstrap molasses without a problem.

3. The unribs are nothing like ribs but any seitan smothered in said BBQ sauce would be delicious. Makes a ton. I could probably eat it all month now with one recipe. :P

Oh Saveur, your review has me salivating even more for this book. I love making basics and playing with variations. (I'm talking to you, Maple Balsamic Ketchup.)

Saveur, which non-dairy milk and which kind of oil (canola, grapeseed or light olive?) did you use to make your butter?

I love that these recipes seem to have decent shelf lives based on the amazon preview. I've had this on preorder for a while, but was afraid the recipes were going to make 3 cups of mayo and say to use it in 3-4 days.

saveur, the butter looks awesome! Can I ask what soymilk you used? It looks like she's referencing a soymilk recipe in the book, but if I'm going to make my own butter, I'm not also going to make the soymilk. I have my limits and I need to start somewhere, people! Did you use store-bought soymilk?

I'm also curious about the cost breakdown for this so I can compare it to the cost of the vegan butter I buy at the grocery store here.

I pre-ordered this book months ago and this butter recipe just made me excited all over again!

For the oils, I used refined coconut oil, which was a special purchase from an Asian grocer but it is usually cheaper than the extra virgin coconut oil. I made the spreadable version, so I added a bit more canola oil to help make it more soft.

For the nondairy milk, I used my favourite drinkable soy milk from a carton (not homemade).

Hope this helps!

I am so excited about this book! I wasn't planning to get it because I am lazy and didn't think I'd use it, but then I looked at the Meat of the Argument chapter and was sold. Unribs! Mmmmm...

For some reason, I really want to make the Dijon mustard. It seems like a simple and fun thing to make! And I do use it a lot. I never thought I could make my own. It's such an interesting book!

I'm making the yogurt right now. My husband wants the ale mustard and I'd like the make the yuba and yuba bacon.

And the pulled pork style seitan. This one's going to keep me busy. :0)

My concern is storing the things i make safely - would you have to follow canning procedures to sterilize jars/bottles or would a run through the dishwasher be fine?

I just received this book in the mail and I am so excited! I do have a question though. I noticed that many recipes have tapioca as an ingredient but it doesn't state which kind. So, I'm assuming that it is tapioca starch or flour is this correct? Also, is there a brand that is better than other brands? I have a faint memory that some people found that certain tapioca starches had a bad flavor, maybe metallic?) but don't know if thats actually correct or not. I would be grateful for any advice!

Before I got the book I made a couple of recipes from the look inside feature on Amazon. The Ranch dressing is excellent! I used dried onion and garlic rather than fresh but other than that I followed the recipe and it was perfect! I also made the butter which turned out good, but I used lecithin granules which didn't blend as well as the liquid probably would so I bought liquid for the next time. I'm hoping this lecithin will be okay though as I realized it's made from sunflower seeds rather than soy. Finally, I made the Italian dressing which is good but too sweet for my liking and I even cut it back by a half. I will happily use the rest though, its good, I just prefer a more vinegary dressing.

On my to make list I have
Breast of Unchicken
Italian Unsausages
Marvelous Breakfast Unsausages
Peppy Pepperoni
15-Minute Rustic Pasta w/Spinach Caper Sauce
Oven Cooked Polenta

I'm so excited and can't wait to fill up my freezer with homemade meats!

with the breast of unchicken - she doesn't specify that the tofu used in the recipe can be the homemade - so can it? or would you buy the medium/firm tofu for it?

I broke down and bought this book, and after flipping through it, I'm SO glad I did! Not only are there a ton of awesome pantry recipes, there's a ton more recipe ideas and variations using these staples that are not included in the index.

I pretty much bookmarked half of the recipes to try:

extra thick and creamy ranch dressing
grape and wine jelly
almond milk coffee creamer
thick soy milk yogurt
flax seed meringue cookies
shaved parmesan
farro risotto with roasted mushroom medley
chicken bouillon
homemade tofu!!
buffalo wings
pork (for pulled pork, dumplings, buns, or ramen)
peppy pepperoni
15-minute rustic pasta (no pasta machine required!)
silky mac ‘n’ cheese sauce
buckwheat beer pancakes
clif bars!!
cheesy thyme crackers
cinnamon rolls
lemon curd
lemon bars
vanilla extract
vanilla paste
caramel sauce
white chocolate bar
matcha mango ice cream
chocolate hazelnut gelato
