I just got this book, which has been on my wishlist for awhile but I can't remember if there was any specific reason I wanted it. Any recipe recommendations?

I like the kale soba noodle dish for a quick weeknight meal. And the molasses brownies are good, too.

I have this book! I've made a handful of things from it that I've really liked, and flipping through it I see a bunch of other recipes I'd like to try. It's really focused on whole foods too, so the recipes don't require any faux-meat/faux-dairy items.

I've made and loved:
Butternut Risotto
Barbecue-Baked Tofu with Mushrooms and Bell Peppers
Pesto White Bean Bowl
Sesame Kale Soba
(I see a recipe for a Southern Bowl which has chipotle black-eyed peas, maple mashed sweet potatoes, and greens, which I haven't made, but have added to my to-make list!)
Flax Maple Cookies
Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies (these are super good!)
I may have made the pumpkin pie, but I can't remember now.

The Blueberry Buckwheat Muffins are really good, a good way to use up buckwheat groats if you have them around.

Oh eff yes. I adore this book. I haven't even tried nearly enough of the recipes by this point but it's a beautiful book. It starts with a huge section on nutrition, how-to's, etc. It is super friendly and approachable in every way, with lots of helpful notes in the margins and stuff. The author is a Canadian holistic nutritionist and has also worked in restaurants and on organic farms so she knows a lot, and it shows. I can't think of a recipe I've tried that I didn't love. The sesame kale soba is something I've been regularly making variances of for years.

I have gotten the sequel, 'Ripe From Around Here' from the library and loved it too. The focus on seasonal eating is great. I made the raw cheezecake for my birthday party one year, mostly attended by omnivores and they all thought it was conventional cheesecake. +10. That book is high on my wishlist.

I don't have this book, I really should, because I think there's a recipe based on one of mine! (which is bonkers cool)

Fact: We realized this sitting on the floor next to my bookshelf whilst gossiping about cookbooks, then oh hi! jdfunks stuffed mushrooms!

I have made them numerous times.

Ooo, I do love this book. Read the non-recipe sections too! She makes sprouting seem less scary.

Recipes I'd recommend:

Roco's Granola! When I was learning how to make my own granola, I tried a million recipes and this one was the house favorite. I use an additional cup of rolled oats, leave out the wheat bran and germ, add zest from whatever citrus I have lying around...whatever tweaks I make it still turns out yummy.

Blueberry Breakfast Polenta! I mean, what else can I say?

Molasses Cornbread! I replace the applesauce with non-dairy yoghurt (my sweetheart hates applesauce in baked goods). This is crazy good. Even my very omni meat-and-potatoes-y brother-in-law loves this.

Green Tahini Dressing! You can also leave out the green. When I make this I eat it on everything.

Broccoli Creem Soup! But only if chopping up broccoli very small does not make you vexed.

Southern Bowl! Augh. So good. I would eat this every day. You can use red potatoes or something else if you're cooking for a sweet potato hater and it is still delish. I like to serve this with the cornbread above or with cornbread biscuits.

Coconut Cauliflower Chana! It's not traditional Indian food, but it is nice. A little bland, so good for sick days. This doesn't sound like a recommendation, but it is.

Sesame Kale Soba! Yum, and also a good way to get sea veggies into your diet. I use fresh ginger and garlic, and serve with baked tofu.

Cocoa Avocado Mousse! You can use any non-dairy milk you like. If you've never made chocolate avocado pudding this is a good recipe to try.

There's a bunch of recipes I haven't tried yet, so I'll be keeping an eye out for recommendations, too.

Bonus round: Ripe From Around Here has a fantastic strawberry shortcake recipe my family looooooooves.

This thread made me make the Zucchini Date Muffins! Unfortunately I was too excitable to check to make sure I had enough of all the ingredients so they are Frankencchini Date Muffins. But they smell good.

http://domesticaffair.blogspot.com/2005 ... -zuch.html for the recipe online!

they are perfect for tea & coffee. not to sweet, nice nutty flavor. some people i have given them to did not dig them - because they wanted more of a cookie than a tea biscuit. whatever!
