I bought this book because I love themed vegan cookbooks and also sriracha!

I have made the sweet potato shepherd's pie that has chipotle chilli in the sweet potato and sriracha in the filling. It was really nice, and surprisingly tolerable for someone like me who doesn't have the highest spice tolerance :)

I'm just looking through this on Amazon and saw that, in the bit explaining the "hippie" ingredients, he says all the cool kids call nutritional yeast "nooch"! Also, I really want this book.

I finally got my copy! I want to make everything!

I'll think I'll try the ultimate or chickpea burgers and/or the stuffed mushrooms tomorrow since I have pretty much everything I need already. I also really need to make the maple sriracha doughnuts asap.

I haven't had much time looking over it yet. It looks great but I will say I got annoyed when he says in the intro that he has tried to avoid processed foods like tofu. I definitely see the Sriracha biscuits and gravy in my near future though.

interesting, i definitely don't view tofu as a processed food. but i'm glad to hear that he does say he tries to avoid processed foods (i assume in his recipes too) so it will be great to have a whole foods type cookbook. i'm taking a trip to the bookstore this weekend and i look forward to seeing this book in person :)

srirach biscuits & gravy, oh wowie!

I just spent a bit longer on it, I read the bit about him saying tofu is a processed food wrong. He says he doesn't like over processed soy products that look like meat, and that he doesn't like his meals to revolve around soy products like tofu. Most of the recipes are fairly standard recipes with sriracha in but I wouldn't have thought of them so fair play to him. My favourite is the pineapple upside down cake that has blobs of sriracha instead of cherries.

Ok, I made the California Benedict with sriracha-chive hollandaise, and the Jamaican Jerk Sliders with mango cucumber relish. Both were delicious but the California Benedict was OUTSTANDING! Literally, one of the most delicious things I have ever made. I made two small modifications to the recipe: liquid smoke in the tofu ingredients (instead of smoked salt) and a sprinkle of black salt on the tofu, after frying.
The sliders are really good, especially with the jerk mayo and the relish. The burgers are delicate though so be careful when you cook them. I'd like to try them again and maybe add a little vital wheat gluten to the mixture.

yeah i had another lookie loo at this book at the bookstore again today, and yeah, i was surprised to see how often he called for flaxseed + water when vital wheat gluten would have worked better.

I was going to say that maybe he wanted to stick to more basic non-vegan pantry ingredients but then I realised that most non-vegans I know don't keep flaxseeds or nutritional yeast in their kitchens either! I haven't tried the ultimate burgers yet but it seems that they have been getting good reviews here so maybe they are a little sturdier?

ETA: I actually went back to read the posts about the ultimate burger and there is only one, so apparently I dreamt up all those good reviews, haha. I swear I read other comments saying that they were good!

yeah i just can't recall the recipes off hand, but i'm pretty sure it was more than one that i saw that called for flax seed + water and i recall thinking man, VWG would be so much better to use here.

the cookbook seemed pretty neat in person again, but i don't think i'm in any rush to buy it right away. a handful of recipes i was interested in called for cashews. man it stinks sometimes to be a vegan with nut allergies :(

Thank you everyone for the review. I love rooster sauce, so much. It sounds like most of the recipes are good. I guess I'm adding that to my wish list.

Has anyone used this more? I made the Jamaican sliders with mango relish at the weekend. I halved the recipe intended to make 2 burgers which is suggested instead of sliders, but ended up getting 4 which I think were bigger than sliders. Anyway, no matter. The relish was fresh and yummy. I probably prefer my burgers a touch firmer but they held together OK. Like someone else said, I might try adding a touch of VWG another time. It used up a whole load of stuff from my fridge which needed using and was very tasty.

I haven't used it at all yet, because I'm almost at the end of my sriracha bottle and I need to get some more next time I'm in a shop that sells it.

Nothing besides those amazing tacos. Everything looks really good. It's just not exactly a weeknight-friendly book that I reach for regularly.

I made the biscuits (without the gravy). They were super tasty, but they didn't keep well at all.
