I think Torque means this! I've heard it called stinky tofu, too, although apparently that can be a different dish. It smells and tastes very cheesy to me (as in stinky cheese, not pizza cheese)

yes yes yes!!

Thanks for the info guys. It sounds intriguing, I'll keep an eye out for it.

I wish someone would finally show me the best methods for creating Grizzly Noochles. Maybe with some variations like a zingy Southwest version or a sharp, smokey version that pairs well with red wine.


I wholeheartedly agree with this poster. Also, wholeheartedly is a weird looking word.

What are (is?) Grizzly Noochles? I feel like it's a joke but google just led me in a circle.

I would love more comfort food recipes such as pot pies, casseroles, stews, etc. Another nutrition info vote. I'm so excited for this!

I'm also a big fan of having the recipe on one page or adjacent pages.

Another vote for casseroles. Also maybe a sammich filling recipe or two. I love the tofu dill salad from vwav. I am boring and will eat the same food every day, but only because it is awesome! Also, there can never be too many mac and cheese recipes. I can't wait!

I'm another casserole gal. One pot stovetop meals, too. I just hate having to wash 10 pots and pans just to make one meal and prefer the dump & heat method of cooking.

+1 yummy. Cookbook authors may not have much (if any) control over the layout, but if it's all it possible this would be super helpful.

I will never get tired of casseroles and one-pot meals. For instance, I really like the tempeh helper from AFR and usually 'steam' the extra broccoli by just dumping it on top of the pasta/tempeh/water mixture.

I also like budget friendly recipes with ingredients like cabbage, turnips, beans etc. Some more creamy sauces and the like based on seeds instead of nuts would be very much appreciated. Sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds are just so much cheaper than cashews and almonds.

Some filling high protein and/or high fiber recipes would be nice, both in the dinner/lunch section and the dessert/breakfast/snack chapter. I like snacks that actually fill me up and don't leave me craving another, and another, and another... :-)

I'm definitely up for savory quick breads too.

Another vote for this. And measurements in grams as well as cups would be great.

I really don't think Isa has any say over how its laid out! And I can vouch for the fact that with multipage documents, it's incredibly hard to get everything on one spread without leaving blank pages in between or something else weird. That's just the way it goes.
And I've never seen a cookbook with both metric and cups/tbsp/whatever? That would be incredibly wordy and look bad.

The Vegan Slow Cooker has alot of gram measurements alongside the ingredients and it doesn't take up much space...just something like (55g) next to the ingredient, at the end.

That's just a PPK colloquialism for Greasy Nooch Noodles in Salt Sauce.

Joni & Celine's 'Hearty Vegan Meals...' has both/all. But you what? After moaning for a while when I first came across these cups things way back, I like 'em now! I have the UK version of VWAV and find myself googling for the cups versions of recipes every time as I just cannot be arsed with the weighing nonsense. And shops in the UK these days have cup measurements for about £2 a set, so I don't see it being an issue.

I'd love to see more marinades for baked tofu and tempeh. I make the basic baked tofu and tofu masala from AFR all the time.
Maybe as part of a mix-and-match sandwich chapter along with spreads and breads and whatnot.
-I'd DEFINITELY love nutritional info.
-Maybe some carb-free or low carb meal ideas.
-Low-fat, savory breakfasts! Muffins, pancakes, and the like are so many points on WW. Scrambled tofu gets a little boring after a while. Or maybe I need to vary the spice mix at least
-I'd also really love to see lots of repurposed leftovers. Like all those omni cookbooks/magazines that have a roasted chicken on day one and pot pie, enchiladas, etc. the rest of the week. We could do a seitan roast or simple beans or grilled eggplant day one and use it in other recipes throughout the week.

Open two, use one in recipe, use other in mouth.

Seriously though I just think recipes featuring beer sound super yummy, but I don't run across them too often other than chili. I've definitely seen some cool sounding stuff on meaty menus though.

My husbands family has a lasagne recipe that starts out with two six packs! You are supposed to drink one six pack while cooking.
