omg this looks so good. I've been excited about it forever, and this makes me even more excited. I'm not going to buy the kindle edition cause I never end up using kindle cookbooks and told myself I wasn't allowed to buy anymore. Can't wait for it to come out though!

I used to prefer paper cookbooks but now I love having the Kindle versions (which I usually read on my iPad). I'm not very good at planning, so it's nice to be able to look something up while I'm at or preparing to go to the store.

Do the recipes have estimated cook times? Any thoughts on how time intensive things seem?

The publisher didn't have me list estimated cook times, but there's a good variety of quick and easy recipes and alternatively some that will take more time (but are so worth it)!

I would love to hear about people's experiences with recipes from this cookbook. Has anyone from the PPK made anything yet?

I keep reading the title as "Vegan Bowel Attack." Which sounds less good than all the recipes you are describing!

So I really want to make the S’mores Pudding Bowl. It calls for vanilla powder, I assume because the aquafaba "marshmallow" topping can't tolerate even the small amount of added liquid that the vanilla extract would have? I could get some, but it looks like I'll pay $11 or $12 for a small jar of a brand with a decent number of positive reviews (as in, "this tastes like vanilla" not "this tastes like nothing").

But a search of my 59 cookbooks on Eat My Books didn't turn up any other recipes that call for vanilla powder, so I could either make a ton of s'mores pudding, or I'd never use the rest of it.

While I'm trying to decide if I really want to make s'mores pudding or REALLY want to make s'mores pudding, I thought I'd see if the PPK had any ideas about flavoring aquafaba when you're whipping it into peaks, without sabotaging the peaks.

In general, the book doesn't call for a ton of expensive ingredients - I don't want to misrepresent it. I just either really or REALLY want s'mores pudding!

Corn Salad with Basil Pesto Aioli: I scored a ton of good fresh corn, so this became my first recipe from this book. I blanched the corn for two minutes and made the recipe exactly as written. It's really good! And so appropriate for the middle of a hot summer.

If I make it again, I will leave out the 1 tbs of water in the pesto. The need for it probably depends on the condition of your spinach, and I don't think I needed it. This would be a super-fast recipe with frozen corn, but it took me a while to shuck 7 ears of corn and cut it off the cob. Fresh corn is glorious, though.

Powdered peanut butter maybe? I've made an ice cream recipe using aquafaba and powdered peanut butter and it turned out amazing (the recipe is in Celine and Joni's latest Vegans go nuts.) PB s'mores sounds realllly good.

You can use the vanilla powder to replace extract in other recipes. Or just work on your aquafaba meringues.

Tex-Mex Potato Salad: Simple and fast, ready in the time it takes to heat water and boil the potatoes. By itself, it's not an earth-shatteringly new version of potato salad, but it's a component of the Summer Picnic Bowl that I will make later in the week. In the meantime, I have half the recipe for lunch for two days, and it's good. Potato salad with more protein and veggies than you usually get with your potatoes.

Thanks for the two ideas for dealing with the s'mores!

RunLonger, you can scrape out the seeds of a vanilla bean pod and chop up the bean. Blend both in a small blender into a powder and you'll have a small amount. I haven't seen her recipe, but if the aquafaba is at very stiff peaks you can fold non-alcohol based extract into AF. Again, I haven't seen this recipe so I'm suggesting blindly.

Zsu, thank you for the great idea about grinding a vanilla bean for the powder! It's relatively easy to buy one vanilla bean at a time as I need them, and now my s'mores problem is solved.

Spicy Sesame Brussels Bites: Been pressed for time this week, so I keep making stuff that I can prep while water boils or the oven preheats rather than the super-intriguing multi-component bowls... True to their name, these Brussels Bites were spicy! I like heat, but if you don't, there's enough other stuff in the glaze and the quick little sauce to give it flavor. I ate most of it and called it dinner. And I really like a woman who puts Brussels sprouts in the "Snack" section of a cookbook.

Like Zsu said, you could scrape probably 1/4-1/2 a vanilla bean and use the caviar for the fluff, or the non-alcohol based vanilla extract! The vanilla powder I have is in a small shaker from Whole Foods (it's a mixture of vanilla bean and sugar, essentially) and it light tan. While it's great for the aquafaba fluff, I also sprinkle it over many other desserts!

And I'm so glad that you're into the recipes so far. That corn salad is definitely perfect for summer. :)

I just ordered this because I needed to reach a certain dollar amount on Amazon for another "add-on" item I wanted to ship. (So it was a totally necessary purchase). I hope people will keep posting their recipe reviews so that I can decide what to cook first.

Tikka Cauliflower Chunks: Another vegetable-based recipe from the "Snack" chapter! And another prep-while-the-oven-heats recipe! This was great! At first I thought I wouldn't use all the coconut oil called for, but then I did because I wanted it to be maximum awesome. But I did taste it before basting with the oil, and it was good then too - I think anyone cutting back on oil would still love this (if you love cauliflower and Indian spices).

Peanut Butter Pretzel Oatmeal: This makes a lovely creamy oatmeal, contrasting nicely with the crunchy crushed pretzels. Halfway through it, I decided to make it again next weekend and add a few mini-chocolate chips, and then it will be Peanut Butter Cup Pretzel Oatmeal. (Your welcome.) Again really fast to prep.

I hope work slows down soon so I can get into the more complicated bowls. Today I ate Bonzai Aphrodite's "magic beans" for lunch because time.

Aha! I didn't realize the vanilla powder could be a mix of vanilla and sugar. Looking for purely powdered vanilla was making it too hard! Thanks for the description - there's a Whole Foods near me and I'll check it out. Thanks!

Love your book! (Obviously...)
