This might be a weird question but which miso do you use for the recipes in the book? I don't mean the kind but ... do you "trust" Asian groceries to label their misos correctly? Don't get me wrong, this isn't an assault. I love shopping in Asian stores but somebody once told me that the miso sold there might contain crab paste or other non-vegan ingredients without saying so in the translated ingredient list. What do you think?

^ Sorry, I don't know as I don't use miso, but I'm sure someone else will know if that's true

I have seriously neglected this book, I've had it since December and hadn't even gone through and bookmarked it, shame on me.

I'm making up for it now, on the weekend I made the Chana Saag with brown rice - it was delish! And the other night I made the Moroccan zucch and chickpeas as well as Caulipots, such a great combo!

I can read Japanese and I've never seen a miso labelled incorrectly. There's only one kind of miso paste in Japan that has fish dashi but I didn't even know it existed until I'd lived there for like 4 years!
So, in summary, I wouldn't worry too much!

I'm making the pepper steak stew tonight for my dad and I. He does turn his nose up sometimes as vegan stuff but he'll try pretty much anything and as he just ate all my leftover baked tofu and tofurkey slices, I think giving him seitan* is fair game. Plus that stew is delicious.

* I'm using fry's beef strips really, because I'm too lazy to make seitan.

I made the curried corn chowder and everyday chickpea quinoa salad last night. Both were so yummy! The soup seemed like it had too much curry but after a couple spoonfuls it balanced out and was delicious. I love the dressing for the salad, I also added some corn, shredded carrot, shredded zucchini and some cherry tomatoes, it was so filling and perfect for the heat weve been having.

The lentil soup is so delicious. I always forget how good it is. I made it with regular lentils this time and it was still delicious.

I'm making the quinoa, white bean and kale stew tonight. I never buy kale so I'm quite excited about it. I am also going to make some tofu to go along with it, probably the basic one.

I made the Black Bean, Zuchini, and Olive Tacos last night. OMG, so forking good. I did use cliantro instead of scallions, black olives instead of katamala, and flour tortillas instead of corn - but that's more because I felt too lazy to go to the store, so I used what I had on hand.

Made the pad thai salad with the red thai tofu for dinner last night-nice filling salad. Just wish the dressing were thicker.

Trattoria Salad was another winning salad-especially the walnut sundried tomato dressing. Yummo!

The buffalo tempeh/cool slaw sandwiches were amazing and it all came together pretty fast ~30ish minutes. Got me into using tempeh more (had less than stellar results with tempeh in the past and am trying to get over that)

The tempeh helper was so-so for me. The hubs really liked it but it was too salty for me. I think I will switch up the type of bullion next time and see if that helps.

I'm not sure why I've never made the scallion pancakes before, but finally did today and they were great. The problem is to stop eating them! They definitely do taste better warm, like the recipe says,

The pad thai salad is really good. I didn't mind the thinness of the dressing, but I read another blog that did. She had the idea to replace half the peanuts with peanut butter to give it a bit more thickness. I haven't tried it, but it's something to think about for next time.

I didn't think about making it with the red thai tofu, but now I wish I had! I marinated some tofu in the dressing overnight and then baked it for a bit. That was really good.

I keep meaning to try the trattoria salad. Need to get on that.

Last night I made the basic baked tofu and unfried fried rice, which we had with sugar snap peas. There was supposed to be enough for leftovers for today, but we accidentally ate the lot ha ha.

I've bought the stuff to make eggplant provencal tonight. I am even putting the olives in! (I'm not a hater I just don't love them and tend to leave them out of recipes where I can.)

I've made most of the recipes from this book that I'll probably ever make, but I tried the baked falafel for the first time last week and it was really good! A great alternative to greasy fried falafel balls. I mean, I smothered it in vegan ranch, but still!

I loved this way more than I thought I would. I halved it and got 3 big (for me) portions. I'm glad there's leftovers for tomorrow's lunch.

I made the silky chickpea gravy for the first time, and poured some over a baked potato. I added a tablespoon of nooch to the gravy, because that's how I roll.

I made the pizza hummus today, which was delicious. However, I fail to see how any one could stop at one portion - I ate nearly half the recipe for lunch with various crudites.

I did the eggplant and chickpea curry for my parents last night. I've never done any sort of curry before, but it turned out pretty well and my parents seemed to like it. I liked it, too! I'm looking forward to the leftovers.

I was tempted to make hummus yesterday but knew I'd get maybe 2 servings out of it. The AFR hummus is healthy but I wanted something that would last for 3-4 meals, so I made the chickpea gravy instead.

(I still want hummus though)

Made the upside-down lentil shepherds pie with caulipots last week. Unusually, I found the portions were really generous so I was super full after eating mine. The puy lentils were really nice and had a satisfying buttery taste. I will definitely make that one again!
