I was finally able to find a copy and I am interested to see what people have made and liked from the book.

Of the UnMeat recipes, I love the UnBeef, UnChicken, and UnBacon.. They're all pretty delic.
Their pimento cheeses are pretty tasty for sandwiches and their cashew mayo is damn tasty, though I add significantly less water.

We use the N'Egg recipe as an egg substitute in baked goods all the time. Not really a stand alone thing but it was the recipe that broke me away from using Egg Replacer (the Ener-G kind) many years ago.

The boiled dinner is aces. So good! There is also a skillet dish I make frequently with potatoes, green beans and unbeef. Can't remember the name of it, but you'll probably find it easily enough in the unbeef section.

This was one of my first vegan cookbooks. I use it often and we usually have a batch of Square Meals in the freezer for quick meals.

These are the recipes we make most often:

Anadama bread
Ginger Snaps with Cayenne
Coconut Cookies – very good with mango sorbet
Monastery Shortbread – a nice light cookie – simple ingredients

BBQ UnRibs with Sauce [best BBQ sauce ever !]
all the broths for seitan
Mushroom Gravy
Sweet and Sour UnPork 1
Swiss Unsteak
Unbeef Gravy
UnBeef Stroganoff [even better the next day]
Unchicken Pot Pie

Eggplant Lasagna with Cashew Sour Cream
Indonesian-Style Tofu
Oat Burgers
Potatoes Au Gratin
Shepherd's Pie
Square Meals [such a good and adaptable recipe]
Squash Creole with the Yeast Cheez
Tamale Pies

It is always a good idea to read the recipe you plan to make ahead of time, because you often have to make 2-3 other recipes to make them work.

I forgot about the oat burger recipe!

There were also a staple through college.

This cookbook makes many unique contributions to the knowledge and techniques of vegan cooking - especially in making and using seitan. Unfortunately the book has been out of print for ..... around 10 years ??

Eno95 from the Old PPK Forum scanned the Simply Heavenly chapters on seitan and broths and put a 48 page file on Torrent. To use Torrent, I think you first have to download the free app and then go here:

I just bought this book, and it looks divine! (I found it used on Amazon) What is the skillet like? Does it cook up just like it says in the book?

I love this book! Even hubby, omni, loves to cook from it.
I have a list of things at home that I made from it. The eggplant lasagna tops it, we've made it many many times, and served it to omnis who liked it just as much as we did. Also used often are the cashew sourkreem, yeast cheez and the notzarella. For lunch I just had the Paprikash, it's great. I also made some of the quick broths. Will report back, this is my favourite and most used cookbook we have. BBQ UnRibs with BBQ sauce was wonderful but it made a huge amount.

OK, here are other dishes we made that were awesome and we make often:
Number 1 is the eggplant lasagna!!!
Tamale Pie
Scalloped potatoes 1
Mexican lima bean casserole
Mushrooms in Kreem Sauce
Spinach au gratin, although we used swiss chard instead
Spanish tomatoe sauce
heavenly broth
other quick broths
Also really good are:
Unsteak Etoufee
Saucy ground unbeef casserole
stuffed meatless loaf
Mac & yeast cheez
Zuccini Casserole with tomatoe cheez and rice
cajun eggplant
squash creole

What we made and wouldn't do again:
Carrot roast, wasn't a fan of this although I love carrots
mushroom stroganoff, although I don't remember why

We use this book mostly mid-fall, winter and early spring because a lot of the recipes involve quite a bit of time

This is probably my favorite book for the CSA season, because it's the kind of simple, tasty food I like, and it has multiple recipes for lots of different veggies. So it's easy to figure out what I want to do with the dozen ears of corn I got, or whatever. Recently I've made the tamale pie, the colonial green beans, a cheesy zucchini casserole, and the green beans and zucchini in tomato sauce one. All yummy.

I love love love love love this cookbook. I actually did make seitan from scratch w/out vwg. Omg that is the only recipe I wouldn't try again bc it took hours. Anyway, everything that I've ever made from this book has been awesome. i probably have made over half of the things in here. I think it's in print again bc it's no longer 100 bucks on amazon. I will never part with this cookbook same with VwV and the Shoshoni Cookbook

I'm so broke right now, but what I do have is a stockpile of a few basics ingredients. Bottom line, I've been making homemade pizza a lot! It's been Notzarella all the way. I forgot how much I like that simple recipe, and it's a vegan cheese that's actually good for you!

Tip - Check Ollie's for Muir Glen Organic Tomato Sauce. I've been getting the big cans 2 for $1.
