There a new book called Plenty More coming out in September. The chapters are organised by cooking method which I don't think I'll find very useful but I'm sure they will be good.

The two potato vindaloo is tasty. It definitely gets better the longer it sits as the spices and sweetness really come out with time.

I made the spinach and fava bean veggie burgers and found them underwhelming. The original recipe had an egg. I left that out and subbed a couple tablespoons of almond butter to act as a binder. Even after refrigerating, the burgers didn't hold up well in the pan, soaked up a ton of oil while frying, and then had a mushy texture that felt more fritter-y than burger-y to me. Maybe there's a better egg sub than the almond butter, but I doubt I'll make these again.

If you ever change your mind, I recommend ground flax seeds blended with water in a blender until it forms a mixture as viscous as egg. Use 1 part flax seeds to 3 parts water. I think 1/4 cup of the blended mix (1 Tbsp. flax seeds and 3 Tbsp. water) is equivalent to one egg.

I like the vindaloo but it's not what I usually think of as vindaloo. It was just a bit too sweet, which can easily be fixed.

I made the sweet potato cakes the other day. They were super simple - just steamed sweet potatoes mixed with scallions, soy sauce, salt and sugar plus a small amount of oil for pan-frying. But they were incredible!! I think this will be my new default recipe when I have too many sweet potatoes from my CSA.

I was also really pleased that the cakes didn't soak up a ton of oil while frying. I think I made my entire batch of ~8 cakes with 2 TBSP or so of oil.
