A few of my favourites are the BBQ mango beans, curry laksa, cool slaw and the curried cabbage and peas.

I made the lasagna for the first time today, I haven't tried it yet cause it is to eat during the week but it made a big pan full so there should be enough for several days.

My copy came! I haven't even really looked at it yet but I'm excited. What should I try first?

Thanks for the recommendations! All those recipes look really good.

I was checking them out today while I was gearing up to assemble dinner and I was looking at the cool slaw and realized I had all the ingredients. And what a perfect side for sammiches. Used ACV instead of red wine vinegar and it was really yummy, a perfect all purpose slaw dressing.

This week is almost all IDI recipes in my menu planning, but I'm hoping to try to get as much AFR packed in for next week.

First recipe from this book was. . the first recipe in the book. The quinoa-chickpea salad with balsamic vinaigrette. I was surprised by how yummy it was, but it still wasn't all that filling. Next time I'll need to bake some tofu or something.

The Ceci Roasted Red Pepper was so yummy. I'll make it again when it's colder, it's a perfect bistro dish to me.

I made the 2nd Avenue Vegetable Korma (again). Still delicious!

Thumbing through the book and this thread, I'm still amazed at how many recipes there are in there that I've never made, or in some cases even noticed before. I'm starting a workout/weight loss challenge, so I'm going to get a lot of use out of AFR in the next few months.

Has anyone made the lasagna?

I've been wondering if it would work if I made it into rolls, like the green lasagna rolls on the blog.

Last AFR creation: Chipotle Lentil burgers! Well, my boyfriend made them. He got frustrated and almost threw them out because. . . veggie burgers like to fall apart! But they ended up coming out great and were super delicious.

Coming Soon to a belly near you: The roasted pepper soup thing and mac and trees with buffalo tempeh. If anything will make me like tempeh, it's buffalo sauce. SO ridiculously excited to eat healthy food. Thanks, Isa!

Sorry to double post but last night I was going to make the roasted red pepper soup, only to find my peppers had gone moldy. Arabian lentil-rice soup to the rescue and MAN, did it rescue. I was shocked at how flavorful it was. I subbed green lentils since that's all I had but just mashed the soup lightly with a potato masher near the end to achieve a similar texture.

I need to buy some more peppers tomorrow, though. 1) Soup sounds amazing and it freezes so amazingly. 2) I don't know what else I will do with the full extra pound of tomatoes that I bought specifically for this project.

I made a big batch of the green goddess garlic dressing, and it's awesome. It was the start ingredient in a giant lunch salad with mixed greens, lentils, onions, nooch, and black pepper. The dressing really makes it!

Had the zucchini, black bean and olive tacos last night. I used regular salsa instead of verde and it was a surprisingly good combo. I was skeptical of the olives, but they were a yummy addition.

Tempeh helper! Not a fan. I loved the flavors and the sauce. . . I just can't do tempeh. I think next time I'll try crumbled tofu or TVP instead.

I made the version of Glam Chowder in AFR the other day. It was okay, but I'm not super crazy about how fishy it tastes.

I did get a crazy deal on the shiittakes, though, because the cashier didn't know what they were and rung them as "mushrooms - regular."
I feel like since I was too shy to correct her, I owe it to the mushroom gods to eat it all.

"Crazy deal", "too shy to correct"? That's nothing to brag about. I hope you shop at a huge grocery chain that can afford to offset theft.

I've not had the AFR glam chowder, only IDI. So so so tasty.

That isn't bragging. I genuinely felt bad about it. I'm very awkward talking to strangers, and she wasn't friendly.

I don't want this discussion to continue in a cookbook thread, but I have had my stuff rung up wrong both ways many times and I usually don't notice it until i'm looking at my receipt. I feel like mixing up produce prices is a pretty common thing and stores account for it. If someone would like to make a new thread about it, feel free and i'll tell you about the time Brian came home with four packages of Tofurkey hot pockets for 30something cents each.

Looks like my barfing following the black bean veggie chilli didn't turn me off the recipe. I've been brave and revisited my good old reliable since courgettes were on special and it still tastes as amazing as ever.

Had the 2nd avenue vegetable korma last night, and despite over cooking the veggies it was tasty. I was surprised how mellow tasting it was.

Made smoky split pea soup today. Fall is in the air here & it's such a comforting soup.

I bought most of the ingredients for the summer lovin' veggie chowder at the farmers market this morning! On the top of the list for this week.
