OMG y'all! Made the black-eyed pea BBQ burgers tonight, so freakin' yummy! Not-vegan hubby loved them too! Highly recommend this recipe!!!!!!!!

We baked the burgers on the lower middle rack of our oven.

I am buying this book just for the pimento cheese. I've been craving it lately but wasn't sure I would be able to veganize it on my own. Super excited!

Also, I almost ignored this book because I thought it was going to be cocktail recipes.

yes, i remember being quite pleased with seeing the pimento cheese recipe, i'm pretty sure there are no cashews in it (i'm allergic to all nuts and lately cashews seem to be popping up in all kinds of vegan recipes!)

My book came in the mail yesterday. Can't wait till thanksgiving is over and I'm back in my own kitchen so I can try some stuff out. The fried cucumbers are so becoming fried pickles asap.

Man, I have to take a photo of myself when that happens. "Woman laughing alone with wangs." It will take the stock photography websites by storm.

congrats on your win! i've only made a couple of things, but it's a great comfort-food (yet healthy) cookbook.

I made the cheesy tofu scramble for dinner last night, and it's now my go-to scramble recipe. It was so delicious and so easy! I can't wait to make more from this book.

Question about grits - Even though I'm Southern, my mom's a grits-hating Yankee, so I never tried them (as far as I can recall) until a couple weeks ago when I was in DC. I'm in the UK now, so I don't have access to anything specifically called grits. A lot of places on the internet want to tell me grits = polenta (i.e., coarsely ground corn meal). So, do I need to get something that is specifically called grits (which you can pretty much only get in the US), or can I use polenta?

They're a bit different, but close enough that the recipe will come out fine.

in my humble opinion, polenta is not exactly like grits......

do you have anything like this in the UK?

In Canada they do the same thing, have this ground polenta and they call it grits, but my southern friends say this is blasphemy.

My Southern father says it's ok to use polenta to make grits.

I've seen these in Tesco (American 'aisle') but I wasn't sure if they were the right thing because they're instant??

they will be okay if you plan to eat them as a single serving, might not work if you were going to do some kind of casserole baked in the oven.... admittedly, instant is usually the kind we have around..... sometimes we get the big canister of the old-fashioned grits and do them on the stove top.....

sorta like the different between quick cooking (instant) oatmeal and old-fashioned oats. i use old-fashioned oats and cook them on the stove top, i would never do that with quick cooking oats or i'd be a big huge sticky gluey mess....

This is totally not a cookbook I need. I read JohnP's review on Amazon though and he mentioned cream of mushroom soup. Plus anything JohnP praises has got to be good. So I ordered it.

I've never seen even instant grits at shops here. But I've asked 2 people to bring me grits, so hopefully I'll get some.

Also, I made the Memphis BBQ Sauce two nights in a row to eat with Vegan Diner Smoky Curls. It's super easy and really delicious.

has anyone made the "brown-sugar-baked tofu ham with redeye gravy" on page 33? i'm thinking of trying this out for xmas eve dinner with my hubby.

also we don't drink coffee. for the "1 cup of strong black coffee" should i just buy some bulk instant coffee granules that i could stir into water or should we just go to the corner gas station and just buy a cup of coffee???

i'm also not really familiar with redeye gravy, is it a thin gravy or does it thicken up a bit as it cooks for 5 minutes??

I would go to the gas station and buy a cup of coffee, but do it in the morning so it's fresh.

thanks for the tip, but when i was talking about this to my hubby he says he remembers quite a few times his grandpa using using soda pop instead of coffee to make "red eye gravy" since they didn't always have coffee on hand either so i think we are going to substitute dr pepper or coke for the coffee! i'll post back and let y'all know know what we end up doing.

brown sugar-baked tofu ham is yum! followed bianca's recipe exactly but added 1.5 tsp liquid smoke to the marinade.
