Made the tempeh meatballs and spaghetti last night, very lovely. We usually use jarred sauce for our pasta so making the sauce ourselves was a nice change of flavors. The tempeh meatballs came together easily, I prefer the texture of baked meatballs so I baked mine at 350 for 25 minutes, flipped, then 15 more minutes. Very delicious!

Made the marbled banana bread. I didn't have cocoa powder on hand, so I melted down half a bittersweet chocolate bar. Still totally worked, and man is that cake MOIST AND YUMMY. It was pretty flat though...didn't rise a ton, which bummed me out a bit, mostly because I wanted there to be more!

The carrot cake pancakes are delicious! I'm still not having luck getting mine as puffy as the pics though, maybe my baking powder is bad? It's not expired yet, but that's all I can come up with.

Mine were pretty fluffy. Yours might look thinner in comparison if the ones in the book are smaller though?

The chunky miso vegetable soup was pretty good, but nothing amazing. I don't know that i'd make it again, especially since the chickpea noodle soup from Veganomicon fills the same niche for me and I like it much better. However I would recommend the chunky miso vegetable soup as a good alternative for mushroom-haters who want some comforting miso goodness. I sprinkled some nutritional yeast on top because apparently miso soup just isn't vegan enough for me. ;)

Also made the peanut sauce recipe this week and yowza. I am kind of a connoisseur of peanut sauce, and this may be my new favorite! I couldn't stop eating it. Me and my guest devoured almost the entire batch, and I spread the leftover sauce on a rice cake the next day and gobbled it up. Mmmmmm.

I wonder if diameter affects lift? I've had different success rates with the puffy pillow pancake recipe, even with fresh baking powder.

I made the breaded tofu, cauliflower, and pesto pasta today and it was good. I don't know if I will bother with bread ing the tofu again, though. I think dry fried would make me just as happy and would save time.

Blackeyed pea and collard tacos were delectable. I loved these and the avocado salsa was a treat.

Tonight I made the Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Seared Brussels and Tarragon cream sauce. I skipped the sprouts as I had them the other night. I subbed sage for tarragon as its what I had. This was really good. First time I made gnocchi and they were not the prettiest. They looked nothing like the photo in the book. I served it with a big veggie salad and it was a great meal. I roasted the potato earlier in the day and then I thought the meal came together pretty quickly. I also made an herb and nooch flatbread and it went so well with the gnocchi and the sauce.

My husband doesn't like Brussels sprouts, so there's always more for the rest of us. I may try subbing sage for tarragon, and see how that works. I have found that the fresh tarragon tastes a lot better to me than dry tarragon, so I always use fresh. I imagine the same could be said of fresh sage.

I really want to make that, curious to hear how it turns out.

I LOVE the kofta, I think they're my favorite recipe from the book...although the chai snickerdoodles and pizza bowl run a close second.

I recommended this book for a friend's daughter and i think she is going to get it! I am really happy that some of my favorite blog recipes are now in pretty cookbook form. I forgot that i always have problems keeping the beet burgers together. Now i add a few spoonfuls (maybe 1/4 c) of tapioca flour and they stay together wonderfully!

I was going to make the red-hot BLTs for 4 lunches this week but after having tasted one I think I'm going to be recalculating that serving size. Brb making another one.

Yeah, man I love those red hot BLTs.

One thing I've been craving lately is Isa's breaded tofu. I think I made it for the cucumber ranch bowl recently and I see there's a pasta recipe which I have to try soon with it.

Yeah, when I think of that recipe, it's actually the sauce I really fixate on. I mean, I totally love the meatballs too, but the sleeper hit of that recipe is the sauce!

So dinner tonight was supposed to be the lentil-a-roni but I was too lazy to cook the lentils. Instead I used apple sage field roast in their place and made the rest of the sauce per the recipe. Holy crepe was that delicious!

The red hot BLTs are amazing! Reading this thread makes me wish i had tempeh so i could make them immediately. I used homemade hotsauce so i am not sure how the spiciness compares.
Finally made the chai spice snickerdoodles. All this time i though i did not have cardamon, and there it was, hiding in the spice cabinet. They are so good! I don't think i will be making normal snickerdoodles ever again.

Did anyone else find that the sauce recipe included with the tempeh meatballs and spaghetti doesn't really make enough for the amount of pasta called for? We used it all with 3 small/medium servings and still have a ton of meatballs left. I didn't have this problem testing because I used jarred sauce. Sticking the extra meatballs in the freezer for the time being.

For the first time in my 7+ years of veganism I have found a baked tofu recipe I can get behind. I have been eating the little squares cold from the fridge. Hooray for this cookbook!

Yes, I had the same issue. I do like my spaghetti really saucy though. I also think the recipe makes more meatballs than it says? It says 4 servings and suggests 3-4 meatballs per serving. I had more than 16 golfball sized meatballs (forgot to count before eating!). Maybe 20?

I didn't have this problem but I really like my spaghetti pretty un-saucy. Most pasta recipes (to me) almost always serve 8 in terms of sauce coverage.

I also just don't like golfball size meatballs and always make them smaller. I would probably strive for four to six tempeh meatballs per serving? Don't remember exactly. Will be re-making the recipe again soon and see how many I make then.

I got 23 meatballs during testing. My husband made it his time, so I didn't count, but yeah, definitely more than 16.
