I think there were some testers on this board.... the recipes look good and I am curious to hear what your favourites were. I feel like making a batch of seitan this weekend. :)

I think the publication date got pushed back.

I made two dishes with sauerkraut but the names escape me now. Both very good!

I got mine.
it wasn't what i expected (i thought it would be more of ways how to make tofu/tempeh/beans/seitan -and then recipes) but the recipes seem interesting enough :)

i tend to buy anything tamasin/celine though (except for finger foods)

Whew.. it is finally out! It got hung up in shipping somewhere off the coast of California. I'm excited for it to get into your kitchens.

Available now at Costco in Virginia ($13.99). The tempeh and tofu recipes look particularly appealing - I'm looking forward to trying some of them soon.

I have to get to work on my review. I've made 6-7 things so far from this book and loved them. It's great!

Last week I made the Unicorn Tacos and the Sloppy Joes (made with tofu and served on baked potatoes). Both were very quick, easy and tasty.

Made the BBQ lentils into a sandwich with a sriracha coleslaw. Shared it a few days ago on the blog:

Also made some changes but basically made the chickpea cacciatore over cauliflower steaks and they were good too.

Bought this when PPK alerted me to the $2.99 e-book. Made the Fake-out take-out sesame seitan with broccoli, subbing Miyoko's unbreast of chicken. I could eat this every day. It was my intro to sambal oelek which is deliciousness in flame form. My only quibble is that the recipe said "serves 4" but in my house it was "serves-2-and-a-small-lunch."

Bump! I'm trying to up the protein in my diet so I've made a few things out of here lately...

Reuben scramble sandwiches: yum! I really liked these and they were very easy and pantry-friendly. Will definitely make again.

Spicy chickpea fries: I love chickpea fries so was super excited to make them at home. But I've tried this recipe twice now and can't get a good non-clumpy texture (the fries are still tasty, but the texture is odd) . The recipe says to whisk the sifted chickpea flour in slowly, which I've done, but the batter still clumps. I guess I could try putting the mixture in the food processor after it's cooked and blending it that way. Has anyone else made these?

Sesame berry squares: I have an inherent suspicion of healthy-sounding desserts but these were quite good. Just sweet enough and the tahini flavor reminded me a bit of Middle Eastern halvah. I didn't have whole wheat pastry flour so subbed white whole wheat flour from King Arthur and they came out fine.

Addendum to above. The NY Times recipe for chickpea fries has you adding the boiling liquid to the chickpea flour (instead of the chickpea flour to the boiling liquid) and then adding the mixture back to the pan. I'll try that next time.

Made the seed and nut ice cream. Reduced the sugar by about a third and it was delicious!

Made the unicorn tacos last night with a few modifications: I used the seitan from Isa Does It because I already had it, cruciferous crunch from Trader Joe's instead of cabbage because it was pre-shredded, and the oil-free mayo from homemade vegan pantry. I also added black beans.

It was good! A very, very good use of the oil-free mayo, which isn't tasty enough to have on fries or a sandwich, but with the chili garlic sauce, it was excellent. Def happy with this book so far!
