I made the Supergreen bowl last night when I realized I had almost everything growing in my garden. Holy shiitake, that dressing is amazing. I can't believe I never made it before. Highly Recommend!

Yeah, dude, the dressings in this book are out of this world. Haven't made one I haven't liked yet. The caesar is my go-to, but the green goddess and sanctuary are very close seconds!

I made the carrot-ginger dressing today and I really do like it. The green goddess one is awesome as well.

How is the pasta de los angeles so good? It's deceptively simple. Made the manfriend a portion without the spinach (picky picky) and he really liked it, except for the tomatoes. Guh, this dude is kind of hard to cook for, but whatever, MORE FOR ME!

I made the brussels sprouts and potato hash this week. I had half a bag of sprouts in the fridge looking to be used up (the first half of the bag I roasted).

It kept sticking to my pan and I used more oil than the recipe called for but it was tasty. Again, an easy recipe to get some extra veggies in your diet. I did slather it in ketchup. I thought that there might be too much thyme but 2 tsp was good. It was too salty though - next time I will use 1/2 tsp.

I made the potpie this evening for dinner. It turned out great. I soaked the split peas for a few hours while I was at work. It made the world of difference.

I made the bistro broccoli chowder for lunch for the next few days. I only had 3 and a bit cups of broccoli so I added a cup of sweetcorn to it. It was lovely. Will definitely make this soup again.

DH is going out of town next week, which means I get a week of eating all of the foods he hates. It's going to be all olives, beets, and beans for me! I am already planning to make the scarlet barley, but I'm wondering which bean dish(es) I should make. What is the best bean dish in the book?

I made tagliatelle with homemade rocket pesto, roasted veggies (aubergine, courgette and asparagus) and garlic bread, followed by a delicious lemon drizzle cake.

I used this recipe http://bitofthegoodstuff.com/2013/03/ve ... -egg-free/ for the cake, leaving out the maple syrup as I was out, will definitely make again.

Another vote for mango bbq beans! They are delish!

Those mango bbq beans look so good. Definitely going on the list. Actually, I'll probably be making all three suggestions. Thanks!

In an effort to drop the few pounds I gained over the winter, I have begun using and appreciating what a great resource this book is. Last night I made the Lotsa Veggies Lentil Soup and served it with a salad topped with the cashew based Balsamic Vinaigrette. We really enjoyed both of these new to us recipes. The meal was simple but satisfying. To mix it up, tonight I am going to try out the Black Bean, Zucchini & Olive Tacos and the Garlic-Lemon Yogurt.

Where all the recipes in AFR look so good, I am not sure what to make next! I plan to go back and read this thread through to see what recipes other people here have most enjoyed. Is there a recipe you really, really love from the book?

These are some of my favourites: Eggplant-Chickpea Curry, Tortilla Soup, Masala Baked Tofu, Soft Broccoli Polenta, Scallion Potato Pancakes, Pasta e Fagioli with Spinach, Roasted Red Pepper Marinara, Curried Chickpeas & Greens - and the Black Bean Tacos, but you'll make these anyway!

The portabello pepper steak stew is hands down my favourite recipe. I made it again last night for the bazilionth time, it's so good. I pretty much know it by heart now.

BF made the ethiopian millet tonight and added black beans to make it a full meal. It was good but not great, I think it would be better with something else as well.
