I have this and was wondering if anyone else did. I like the book and it is a good resource with good info, but I am having a hard time getting inspiration for the recipes.

Anyone tried anything from that book?

I haven't actually made too much from this one. There is a soba/kale recipe that is very easy. I have made it a couple of times. I really like that one. But I think that is the only thing I have made.

I think my favorite recipe from that book is the molasses cornbread. I made it so much that everyone got sick of it and now I am not allowed to anymore. The rooibos chai is really good. So is the white bean and kale soup and the cardamom tapioca. Oh yeah, and the lemon poppy seed cake. An omni said it was the best he'd had.

Unless there are lots of repeats in the new book, all of the above recipes are in Get It Ripe. And they're also my favorites from that book! I love that cornbread and the soba-kale dish.

I haven't bought the new book, and I don't think I will. But I'm looking forward to getting it from the library.

I have it too but I haven't noticed any repeat recipes from Get It Ripe. I've just been too busy to cook from it yet, but it has some things I'm definitely interested in trying so I don't have any suggestions yet. There's a bean recipe in there that looks good. I'm always interested in a really good, basic baked bean style recipe and that's one I plan to try one Sunday with some cornbread...

Oops. I read this as Get it Ripe. I tested for Ripe from Around Here. I can't even remember the recipes off the top of my head, so I guess I wasn't blown away, but I remember it being OK.

D'oh! I read it wrong too. I do have Ripe From Around Here but I haven't made a ton of stuff yet. We really like the lemon poppy pancakes and the home fries. I have been wanting to make the baked bean recipe seitanicverses mentioned. I think it required some kind of nut butter that I need to get. Oh and I just remembered that she posted on facebook that there was a typo in that recipe. Add 2 Tb of brown sugar or maple syrup to the ingredients. The instructions call for a sweetener but there isn't one listed.

I think I'm going to check this out from the library first. I loved her first book! Thanks for the recipe recs to try.

I highly recommend the Apple-Flax Pudding and the Constellation Cookies. I think you have to be into simple healthy-type foods to be into jae's recipes, but I am, so I really like a lot of them. (I tested for this book, and have her first book.)

Yeah, I love simple, healthy recipes too. Maybe I should try something from the book this week. I really love Get It Ripe I've just had no time for much cooking lately. The Apple-Flax pudding sounds especially appealing right now and I have some apples to use up!

I love the sweet potato-date muffins and the African stew.

Time to share some love for Ripe from Around Here. I’m surprised that there is not more information available about this excellent book; no previews on Amazon or Google Books and just a few blog reviews/articles. Ripe from Around Here was published in 2010 but the content and resources remain very relevant. You can eat healthy local vegan food and support the environment.

I received the book as a Christmas present and have been cooking from it for the past 4 months. I also have Jae’s first book – Get It Ripe. I haven’t noticed any repeat recipes between the two books, though a few of the recipes from both books are posted on her blog - http://domesticaffair.blogspot.ca/

In addition to 180 recipes, the book contains tutorials on seasonal DIY projects to support both healthy vegan eating and the environment. The sections on Traditional Chinese Medicine and cultivating good health with the seasons were very interesting. As a result of what I read, I will be looking at more of the TCM resource suggestions.

There is a 30 page book preview for Ripe From Around Here on Issuu that contains a general table of contents and about 11 recipes.

Meghan Telpner has an informative podcast with Jae just before the book launch.

I love Jae’s simple, healthy recipes. Here’s some of my fav recipes from Ripe From Around Here. I’ve included recipe links where I could find them.

Arame Broccoli Salad – A great salad for potlucks. Broccoli, sesame seeds and arame (seaweed) with soy sauce, toasted sesame oil and dulse powder.

Citrusy Roasted Asparagus – A solid recipe for asparagus season! The recipe is included in the book preview on Issuu, page 23.

Pesto Potato Salad – Simple and flavourful.
http://domesticaffair.blogspot.ca/2009/ ... o-new.html

Spring Sesame Noodles – Comes together fast and keeps well for lunches.

Chilled Beet & Coconut Borscht – A wonderful warm weather soup.

Pear Parsnip Soup – The flavour combos really work !

West African Groundnut Stew – Mild peanut flavour that you can spice up as hot as you wish. I sub’d zucchini for okra.

Savory Stuffed Mushroom Caps – Solid and adaptable recipe with garlic, basil, thyme, marjoram. It, makes a small batch – fills 8x8 pan - but you can double+ the recipe.

Wild Rice with Wild Leeks (Ramps) – One of my fav grain recipes. The name isn’t quite accurate – this recipe has brown rice, wild rice and amaranth or millet too. I didn’t have wild leeks so I used white onion and garlic chives. The recipe is included in the book preview on Issuu, page 25.

Tomato Chard Bake – I didn’t realize how tired I was of steaming chard, until I tried this recipe. It comes together fast and easy. You can serve it over grains, noodles, lentils/beans, root veggies – very adaptable. The recipe is included in the book preview on Issuu, page 25.

Classic Veggie Pâté – one of my favourite recipes in the book. The base is sunflower seeds, onion, garlic, mushrooms, carrot and potato. Good warm or cold. You can try different herb/spice combos. Keeps well in the fridge for a few days if you need to make it ahead for a party.

Grandmother Palmer’s Baked Beans – Yum ! Never would have thought adding pumpkin seed butter to baked beans would make such an impact. PPK member P-J posted some excellent modifications to this original recipe, but now I can’t find them….

Flax Apple Pudding – Novel breakfast option, especially if you’re tired of oatmeal.

Pretty in Pink Lemonade – Beautiful and refreshing. Add some vodka.

Chai Pumpkin Seed Cookies – The chai spice combo in these cookies will make your taste buds sing.

Constellation Cookies – The best chocolate GF cookie I’ve made.

Peppermint Crisps – Light, minty and refreshing cookies. Good for holiday snacking.

Has any one else been cooking from this book? What are your favourite recipes ?
