What have people tried and what did you think? I have a big list of stuff that looks interesting but I think I'm yet to go beyond the various seitan crumbles, which are really quick, easy and good.

I made the tofu satay with peanut sauce, but it turned out the tofu I'd purchased was bad (really terrible smelling), so I used tempeh instead, and it was great. I made the cilantro cucumber salad along with it, to make it seem more meal-like. They went together well. I feel like I've also made something breakfast-y, but I can't remember what.

I made the seitan en croute for Thanksgiving, it was really easy but it looked really fancy & impressive.

I also made the Caramelised Onion Tart with a Sweet Potato & Sage Crust during MoFo & it was SO good.

I can't wait to make more stuff from this cookbook!

This recipe is absolutely fantastic. One of my all-time favorites, from any cookbook

Oh actually I have made this also, just from Joni's blog. It was really good!

I keep staring at this one in the bookstore. Is it worth buying? What are your favorite recipes? Is it heavily based on soy, wheat or gluten ingredients?

I love the butterbean dip, the seitan en croute, peanut butter muffins, and cheaters mac and cheese. Mattjade really liked the queso (the one with tvp).

Some of the recipes I've tried just haven't been for me. But I know I've heard other people rave about the same recipes, so I think it's just a personal taste thing.

Momo, I think it's worth buying. The things I like have become staples that I make over and over again. There are lots of vegetable-based recipes, if that's what you're asking. There is an entire chapter of faux meats which, is mostly gluten-based, but that's maybe 20 recipes out of the 500. The baking chapters use a lot of alternative flours, but they're not necessarily gluten-free (there's lots of spelt, for instance). If you're asking for recipes that are completely soy- and gluten-free, there are fewer of those.

I got this for Christmas and I'm happy to find this thread because, wow, 500 is a lot to choose from.

I love the Mac and Sleaze, and have been known to use that cheezy sauce in other things. Don't let the name fool you, this stuff is good.

My housemate had this book and really liked it, though I can't think of anything specifically that she made from it.

I think all the granolas are great -- this is easily my go-to cookbook whenever I want granola.

I made this and I agree; SO good! The first thing I made happened to be the Curried Apple Sprouts because I had all the ingredients at home. Easy to overlook, but really tasty.

I'm at work right now and I don't have the book with me, and I don't remember all the things I've made from this book, but I remember THIS: Orange Almond Cake with Orange Icing, which I call the Cardamom Cake. It was awesome and wowed everyone at a (non-vegan) potluck. It was the first and only dessert at the dinner to be eaten completely, and people were bummed that there wasn't more.

I made the meatless BBQ riblets last night and they were really good, but I had to add more vital wheat gluten than it called for, and I added a heaping 1/4 tsp of salt because it didn't call for any salt or soy sauce.

Has anyone tried the spinach quiche? I'm trying to find something low fat to take to a potluck & I like their suggestion that you can make it without the crust but I'm reluctant to take something I've never tried to an omni potluck!

I just ordered this book, I'm so looking foward to trying out some of these recipes.

Post subject:  Re: 500 Vegan Recipes

i just got this book, and it's a little overwhelming in its size. i'm definitely going to be referring back to this thread for ideas.

so far, i've made the cheezy quackers (which my son and i polished off the same day). i also made the seitan en croute from the book for thanksgiving, but at the time i just got it off joni's blog. we had several guests over, and everyone really enjoyed it.

tonight, i'd really like to whip up a batch of seitan bacon crumbles (it just looks so easy, i gotta try it stat) and the cauliflower pasta crisp.

Those are both really good recipes.

oh man, i love how easy those seitan crumbles are to make. and delicious! i had to stop myself from just eating them straight. i'm looking forward to trying more seitan recipes from this book.

the cauliflower pasta crisp was good, but since i'm 39 weeks preggo it kind of felt like a lot of work. fortunately, it made a huge pan so there's plenty left over to freeze for post-baby nom noms.

The mushroom lasagna/tofu ricotta is really good. I also liked the cranberry pecan quick bread.
