I'm a big sucker for the caesar chavez dressing, love the green goddess as well but the caesar chavez is impressive.

I had a bunch of broccoli in my fridge, and was torn between Mac n' Trees and 40-Clove Chickpeas & Broccoli.... so, I combined them for lunch today - and the dish was OUT of this world!

I added a tbsp of ketchup and a tsp of Frank's to the cheese sauce (for color and taste), and MAN was it amazing with the garlic and the roasted broccoli. The last few chickpeas, warm and toasted, have such a wonderful, rich flavor (chicken-esque, but without the nastiness).

<yum>


Last night, I made the Mango BBQ Beans to less-than-favorable reviews from my omni family. I agree they were a tad too sweet (I'd used frozen organic mango). So I would definitely go lower in the sweet and maybe a tad higher with the smoke and spice next time - and/or perhaps some maple syrup instead of agave.

Love reading all the recommendations on the threads! This book is newer for me, so I'm still catching up...

Quoting myself because I'm AGAIN enjoying this 40-Clove Chickpeas & Broccoli + Mac n' Trees hybrid for lunch (3rd day straight!), and it's just *awesome*. Love the nuanced flavors from the lemon zest and oregano roasted with the broccoli, and the cheezy sauce really ties it all together.

Happy, happy tummy...

I cannot think how many times I have made the Curried Cabbage and Peas. It is now a standard here with slight variations in the curry powder I use & how much MORE fresh ginger & garlic I use.

The Arabian Lentil & Rice Soup often gets made ... very comforting on dull chilly days which just about covers UK weather this year.

Surprisingly, the Curried Cabbage and Peas and the Cabbage and Seitan are really high up there on my repeat recipes from this book. I say surprisingly because both are so simple and who really gets a hankering for cabbage, but these recipes never disappoint for me.

I don't see it get much attention but I made the Pasta de los Angeles last night and it was really good. I never believe that 8oz of pasta will make 4 portions but this one actually did, and it was perfect for the lovely weather we are having.

I cannot believe how much I could love a recipe book.

Yesterday I made the blackened broiled tofu. It was amazing. I served it with new potatoes, asparagus and a portobello and it was the best meal I've had since the last recipe I made from this!

I avoided this recipe because I have never liked the idea of pasta and beans together, but my parents made it once when I went home and it was wonderful! They swapped the fresh tomato for a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, so now I do that when I make it too. Also, that way you can make it even when tomatoes are out of season.

That's a great idea! I love fire roasted tomatoes, and that would make it more pantry friendly, mean less prep work and probably make it a little saucier. Now I know what I want for dinner.

I haven't felt drawn to that recipe, but now that you say you liked it I'm instantly curious to try it.

Ha ha, I'm hesitant to part with mine, for sure - but at least you are spreading some vegan love to the world, with your selfless generosity. =)

I tried two new recipes today and yesterday! First out was the quinoa black bean salad with toasted cumin seeds and it was really yummy! It didn't get me full though, which will make me eat it as a side next time. Today I made the romesco dressing and it was lovely and so easy! I fried some tempeh and onions and mixed into it which was AWESOME! Making it again asap.

I've made the pasta de los angeles a billion times! Only once with canned tomatoes (15 oz). I prefer it with the fresh. I think it was actually saucier using fresh than canned.

I've loved everything I've made from this book, but last night I made the red wine and kalamata tempeh and I wasn't a fan. I like red wine, I like olives, and I like tempeh, so I'm not sure what went wrong.

That includes buying them as gifts! This is only the second time I've bought them for myself.

I had the same problem. I don't know why I disliked it so much.

Yeah, there are only a couple of things I haven't made again since testing and that's one of them.

That combination just didn't sound very good to me, so I never even made it.

Yesterday I made the thai basil green beans and I took Isa's suggestion for bulking it up and dry fried some tofu to add. It was so good! Every time I make a great recipe from this book I think to myself, why didn't I make this sooner? This dish is definitely going to get made more often.

well damn. I was planning on making this one this week. Maybe I'll pick one of the many other as-of-yet-untried recipes instead.

That green bean recipe is one of my absolute favorite recipes EVER and made me like green beans. I can't wait til our farmers market opens and I can make it all summer! I'm even growing Thai basil again, specifically for that recipe.
