What are your top five favorite recipes from veg cookbooks? I own a bunch of the cookbooks listed in the favorite cookbooks thread, but some of them I never cook out of. I thought other people might be wondering the same thing.

1. VwaV--lemony corn muffins
2. Vegan Comfort Food--Caesar salad dressing
3. Veganomicon--chickpea cutlets
4. How to Cook Everything--tomato sauce with bay leaves
5. Viva Vegan--red seitan

Edit. These are the recipes that I make over and over again.

Such a hard question!

1. VWAV - Brooklyn Pad Thai
2. Veganomicon - Snobby Joes (my 12 year old brother LOVED them!)
3. Refresh - Veggie Burgers
4. VCIYCJ - Peanut Apple Pretzel Drops
5. Vegan Brunch - Toasted Coconut Mango Muffins

I have SO many other favorites but these have been hits with both vegans and omnis alike!

I know that this thread asks for a top 5, but that was too challenging for me. Instead, here are one or two favorite recipes from some of the books I have.

VwaV - falafel (I like to eat it on a Saturday...); pancakes
Vegan Brunch - Chesapeake tempeh cakes
The Everyday Vegan - sweet and sour tofu balls
How It All Vegan - sloppy joes, shephards pie
American Vegan Kitchen - barbeque portabello sandwiches; minestrone soup
VCTOTW- tiramisu cupcakes; lemon macadamia cupcakes
Vegan Table - chana masala
Vegan Soul Kitchen - blackened tofu with succatash salsa
V'con - chocolate chocolate chip cookies; lentil soup with grilled pineapple

These are the five recipes I would copy onto recipe cards or a word document if I for some reason had to get rid of all of my cookbooks:

Tofu Scramble from Vegan Brunch
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bombs (or whatever they are called) from VCIYCJ
Peanut Sauce from Moosewood
Falafel from How to Cook Everything Vegetarian.
Marinated Mushrooms from Moosewood

Pretty sure I could live on those five things for quite a while.

The truffles from Eat Drink and Be Vegan almost made it, though. As did the lentil walnut burgers from Moosewood.

Agree on the chocolate peanut butter bombs or pillows or whatever their name is, they're AMAZING!

You're right, they are pillows! For some reason, I always want to call them bombs.

I have a long way to go before I've actually worked my way through the cookbooks at my disposal, but a few recipes I like are:

Pad Thai from The Vegan Table
Snobby Joes from V'con
Sicilian Collard Greens With Pine Nuts and Cranberries from The Kind Diet

If I didn't already have a MoFo theme, I'd just go through this thread and make everything I haven't had before. Can you believe I've never had Snobby Joes? I can't.

And LazySmurf, I was just trying to remember what that kasha recipe was called so I could recommend it in the YRR thread. Varnishkes! YUM!

Scrambled Tofu - Vegan Brunch
Italian-style seitan sausages - Vegan Brunch
Cashew Ricotta - Vegan Brunch
Cinnamon rolls - Vegan Brunch
Portabella Feijoada - Viva Vegan

Okay, apparently I like Vegan Brunch a lot! There are several recipes from Vcon that I enjoyed but have only made once so it doesn't seem fair to list them. I made an exception for the VV recipe, though, because holy crepe that was delicious.
