Mango BBQ beans, mmmm. I've made them a couple times now. I usually add a couple teaspoons of molasses for a more barbecue-y flavor. And I use frozen mango, works perfectly. We usually end up devouring the whole six serving just the two of us...

I made the quinoa kale and white bean stew last night. I thought it was okay, but my husband loved it! And he usually doesn't eat things with kale.

Why have I not been using AFR lately? Last year I was obsessed with this and now I haven't made anything from it in months. What the heck? I just remembered the fourty-clove chickpea and broccoli and how amazing it is. I'm going to make it tonight.

So I tried a new to me recipe from the book tonight, Kidney Bean and Butternut Jamba Stew. I subbed sweet potatoes for the butternut and used 1.5 cups of homecooked kidney beans. So good. Makes a lot too.

I love that jamba stew! I usually use sweet potatoes instead of butternut as well.

I made the hoisin tofu lettuce cups last night (so quick and so yums!), and tonight I am going to make the cauliflower lasagna. I've been making lots of soups and stews and curries, and thought it was about time to mix it up a bit. Yum!

On so many suggestions here, last night I made the Forty Clove Garlic & Broccoli over quinoa with Easy Cheesy Sauce. Oh my, what a bowl! And so easy too (almost my favorite part).

Made the Arabian lentil and rice soup, but we doubled the lemon zest and lemon juice. HEAVENLY.

We used this same soup as a "sambhar" of sorts to serve with South Indian idli and medhu vada. Perfect fusion dish!

I got this book in December and so far it's had plenty of use! This weekend I've made Arabian lentil and rice soup and hottie black eyed beans with the sweet potato and ginger mash - huge successes. I've also made the red Thai tofu, falafel and the butternut jamba stew. They've all been super delicious. I've got a lengthy list of recipes I want to try as well.

I cooked the Carribean Curried Black-Eyed Peas with Plantains yesterday, with unripe plantains. Not recommended. It never crossed my mind that they wouldn't be ripe when they looked like ripe bananas! The curried beans were great though. I'll definitely double the recipe next time, there were no leftovers. We had them with brown rice, but I think some greens would be great too. Now that my supermarket actually has kale, I'm gonna try it next time with very ripe plantains and some garlicky kale.

Made Curried Chickpeas and Greens with some tinkering: only 1 lb of baby kale, added 1 lb of steamed cauliflower and used an entire 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes. Saucy, delicious, and soooo satisfying.

Made the eggplant bacon for the first time last night (I've only just bought my first bottle of liquid smoke!) and it's super. I let them cool and had it with a giant salad and some piccalilli coleslaw. Nam nam nam.

My copy of AFR was sitting on the bookshelf gathering dust until I borrowed Isa Does It from the library. I cooked up a 'storm' this weekend and was disappointed with each one as I tasted it after cooking. I reheated all three for lunch today and they were great. The flavors had blended and intensified and I didn't miss the extra oil at all. My menu consisted of Sautéed Kasha & Mushrooms with Dill, Veggie Potpie Stew and Caulipots with Garlic. I also made the Chicky Tuna Salad from IDI which I love, love love!

I posted before I finished my thoughts. I've used a recipe for garlic mashed potatoes that's meant to be made in a pressure cooker with whol cloves of garlic. I put the Caulipots ingredients plus garlic cloves in the pressure cooker and followed that timing and somehow the result is just as potatoey but fluffier.

I just checked Lorna Sass's blog and it's not there. I took the timing from one of her books and the recipe from AFR so I should be able to post tomorrow after checking my notes.

Here's what I did to make the Caulipots in the pressure cooker. I used the steamer 'tray' that came with my pressure cooker to hold the vegetables above the broth. I used a cup of broth because you can't cook in a PC with too little water, at least not mine. I left the potatoes and cauliflower chunkier than the recipe calls for. Then, inspired by the variations in AFR I added 4 large peeled garlic cloves. I cooked this at high pressure for 6 minutes and then let the pressure come down naturally.

Garlic cooked in the PC like this comes out very mellow so more is needed than with sautéing. After I started cooking I realized that the cauliflower would be cooking for a lot longer than usual. I think that helped with this recipe because it was very creamy when I mashed it with the potatoes and garlic and some of the broth. I forgot to add oil and it wasn't missed!

Rediscovering my love for this cookbook!

Last night I made Mac & Trees with Buffalo Tempeh. I also prepped the Pad Thai Salad for lunch with some store-bought baked tofu. The dressing is amazing!

Later this week I plan to make Chickpea Piccata and Caulipots for the first time!

I made the eggplant & lentil chile mole. Holy wow. I was afraid for some reason but I absolutely love it. The eggplant gives it such a great texture and the flavors are wonderful. With a dab of cashew sour cream it is perfect!!!

Just ordered this book used from Amazon. I only paid $9 including shipping. Can't wait to add it to my growing Vegan cookbook collection.

I'm sure you'll enjoy it! It's my second favourite cookbook after Isa does it, I just wish it had more photos!

I made the red wine kalamata tempeh the other night and it was really good. I don't usually like tempeh so it was a pleasant surprise. Marinating it overnight really did wonders. I'm still dreaming about it.

This has been my go to entertaining dish for awhile now. I serve it with roast potatoes, a green cooked veggie, and Caesar salad.
