I'll have to try that, then. My grandmother always made me eat greens, and I always hated them. But I want to like all the veggies!


I *adore* the mess o' greens (using collards only - never seem to have turnips). The "pot likker" is AMAZING. Such a great side dish with some crispy sauteed tofu...

It sounds boring, but I made the Cream of Mushroom Soup from the book and it was a nice, solid recipe. We did not eat it straight; we turned it into two different casseroles. One was from Vegan Crunk; I want to say it was the Tofu Chicken and Pasta Bake. Yeah, that was it. It was like two weeks ago, but I kept forgetting to comment. Anyway, it turned out really good! I don't even usually like casseroles, but I think it's cuz cream of mushroom from a can always terrified me. Now I don't have to be scared anymore!


Can't wait to try it! The cream of celery was wonderful, so no surprise.

Collards taste good though. Turnip greens are gross, and she makes it work. Or maybe my taste buds have just grown up. That was my first turnip green experience in probably 3 or 4 years.

I made the fried green tomatoes over the weekend. I still don't like fried green tomatoes. I keep trying to like the texture of whole(ish) tomatoes and I just can't. The breading was great, though, and I managed to eat most of 2 slices in the Fried Green Tomato and Tofu Sandwiches. The Sweet and Sour Marinated Tofu is really, really good.

I was just reading through this forum to look for some inspiration for using this book - I got it for christmas last year and have only used it once. BUT! That one thing I made was amazing, and I don't think I saw anyone mention it! It was the fried tofu chicken wafflewiches with maple-mustard sauce. They were a little labor intense and involved a fair amount of planning ahead (well, mostly remembered to marinade the tofu starting early in the day), but they were amazing. Even if you don't want to make the waffles/don't have a waffle iron, I'd highly recommend making the other parts and having the sandwich just on regular bread.That's what we did with the leftovers, and just ate the southern fried tofu chicken cold and it was still so, so good.

I've used this book in the past and everything turned out brilliantly, I've made Chicken Seitan, Tofu Chicken, Creamy Tofu Chicken Pasta Bake, Cream of Mushroom Soup, Country Vegetable Soup, BBQ "Pulled" Tempeh & Carrot Sandwich, Hoppin John and Cheesy Tempeh Bacon Grits. Everything was delicious.

Had the Seitan Beef Stew last night. It's creamy & delicious! (and pretty darn easy as well).

I finally made the tofu fish fry and hush-puppy muffins. As I was making the tofu, I thought that maybe I should add some more seasoning, but then I forgot. I'm glad I did because the tofu was perfect as is with the tartar sauce. I loved the addition of horseradish to the sauce, which made it like a delicious cocktail-tartar sauce hybrid. This meal is one of my new favorites from the book.

Tofu fish fry? That's the first thing that has made me really want to check this book out.

So I made the tofu fish fry, and I wasn't really feeling it. My mom and husband really liked it though. I've never used cornstarch as a major component of breading without frying it, and the cornstarch breading, just being baked, left this really unpleasant chalky feeling in my mouth. The flavor was good, I just couldn't enjoy it because of that. The hush puppy muffins were pretty good, a little dry though.

I make the Creamy Tahini Sauce from Cookin' Crunk regularly. It's cheesy & nutty and is a great way to make a simple rice/bean/steamed vegetable meal infinitely more interesting. Highly recommended! (Bianca also posted it on her blog here: http://vegancrunk.blogspot.com/2013/08/ ... lates.html)

I completely agree! I'm using it this week for daily bowls of quinoa, steamed kale & baked tofu. It complements many ingredients very well.

I liked these better reheated the next day. I think the cornstarch had the chance to absorb more moisture. So maybe next time I'll be sure to shake off as much cornstarch as possible.

Or just make the beer battered fried tofu from VB instead.

If you don't have enough beer battered tofu recipes, the tofu fried chicken in this book is amazing.
