Finally got a copy and gave a couple recipes a whirl. Did the Portabello Feijoada, Brazilian Braise Kale and Fried Plantains.

Didn't use a non-stick pan for the kale, cuz I'm non-stick-o-phobe so it kinda burned but most of it could be saved. I used 2 cans of black beans instead of cooking dry ones and about a cup and a half cooked chickpeas that needed to be used. It tasted great! Very meat.

Peruvian Seitan and Potato Skewers (Seitan Anticuchos)

I pulled out this book again the other day and went through linking of all the stuff I want to make. It's just win after win. I made some empanada dough and the seitan/raisins/olives filling so hopefully I'll get them on the go this week. I used coconut oil instead of shortening so I hope they work out!

The food I've cooked from the book for other people always seems to be popular. I just had to stop my dad from eating leftover papas rellenas filling before dinner was ready, after my mum had remarked it's not every day that he gets fed this well. She was already enamoured with the quinoa, olive and peanut salad and had requested I make it again for my grandparents.

Made the cilantro-lime rice and the tempeh asado last night (to go with salad and the green pumpkin seed mole from Vcon) - yummmmers.

I am making enchiladas, and I think I may have gone way overboard in the heat dept. Oops!

(I will eat them anyway.)

Last night we had a Mexican pot luck/movie night (we watched Machete) and I made the potato-chickpea enchiladas (one of our favourites), the creamy corn empanadas and the alfajores. Those empanadas are amazing, definitely one of my new top recipes from this book. It took a lot of restraint for me not to just eat all of the filling straight out of the pot.

The alfajores were super good too, but pretty messy. The filling was really thick, but it leaked out of most of them, even after I stored them in the fridge. I'm not really sure where I went wrong.

Made the quinoa/olive/etc. salad for a potluck tonight. It was delicious, and I got a bunch of compliments on it.

This happens to me all the time when I make them too, and I've made them several times. I think they're just best assembled right before eating, but I always assemble them ahead anyway and the caramel does leak out. They're my favorite cookies!

I hadn't used this book in far too long so yesterday I made the chimichurri sauce and used it on mushrooms instead of tofu and I did some of the Mexican street corn, YUM.

Everything I've made has rocked. I'm pretty sure I could live on an IV drip of Aji sauce for the rest of my life. I REALLY liked the potato/poblano casserole w/pine nut crema. The cuban sammiches were also tres boss.

i seriously don't use this book enough - the mere thought of it makes me happy. i think i'm pouting because i can't eat gluten anymore.

Appi, I have no problems with Viva Vegan & being gluten free. Most of the recipes are gf and if they include seitan I sub in mushrooms but I am thinking of making some gf seitan. All of the beans and rice are easy, the arepas, tamales, salads & soups. It would just be the wheat based empanadas/tortillas and the seitan that you wouldn't be able to make but you can use corn tortillas and the corn dough for the empanadas. Which recipes do you really want to make?

I've decided I will make all 200 recipes (I'm up to 62) but I will have issues with the 2 seitan recipes, obviously mine will be gf and a lot different and the drinks that include alcohol, particularly the sangria, due to the red wine and the one that involves beer because I can't stand either of them.

This week I made the seitan saltado with portobello mushrooms, it was SO good and it made heaps so I have been enjoying leftovers. I also made the black bean-corn salsa salad with fresh gazpacho salsa dressing, really nice and fresh. And the alfajores but gluten free and soy free, I could just eat the dulce de leche filling on it's own, delicious!

Woot! Cookbook-mania! I can't wait to hear about it. :)

As a gluten-consumer, I must ask... how does one make GF seitan that you mentioned?

I was wondering the same thing, apparently it is possible. I did a google search:

viewtopic.php?f=29&t=4509

http://www.meatandeggfree.com/gluten-free-seitan.html

http://www.wellsphere.com/healthy-cooki ... ten/472515

kitteh, I'd love to know which recipe you use!

I've used the wellsphere one before and I altered it to make the chorizo too. I might try playing with the recipes in the other link as well as the recipe by deearess that I use for chickpea cutlets. I have no idea what seitan is like in texture so they're probably very different but I'd like to use something else rather than using mushrooms all the time!

Is this really spicy? I'm having some friends over for dinner in a couple of weekends and asked them if there was anything they didn't like food-wise and they said "not too hot on the peppers" so I want to check.

I'm considering making that potato/poblano cassarole or the chickpea enchilada cassarole for them methinks...I don't think the enchiladas cassarole is too spicy but if anyone thinks it is could you chime in so I knows...

The chickpea enchiladas are fantastic and not too spicy at all, you friends will love it.

thanks!!!! I cannot wait!!!!!!! I've always wanted to make them but tomatillos aren't that easy to find fresh at my local supermarkets. I'm making a special trip to the downtown market the weekend of the dinner to get them though.

I made the chickpea enchiladas a couple of weeks ago for some friends and one of them found it too spicy, but she's super sensitive to that kind of thing. Personally, I can't even tell that it has chillies in it.

I don't think I've tried arroz con seitan but I bet it's delicious!

Over the weekend I made the eggplant torta using gf bread rolls & the spinach, Brazil nut gazpacho salad, they made a delicious lunch.

I took a bit of a risk and decided to make the Venezuelan black beans in a slowcooker, and it worked! so happy. Basically, I cooked 1 lb. dried, unsoaked black beans in 6 cups of water on high for 4.5 hours...I was planning on cooking for 6 'cause thats how I usually do pintos, but checked at 4.5 and they were just-done. Then I added the sofrito, tomatoes and panela and cooked an additional 2 hours. They were amazing, the liquid is sooo yummy and the beans are creamy but still firm-ish. My very omni dad really liked them on top of the yellow garlic rice. For the same meal, I did the roasted stuffed plantains and they were delicious; I'm not sure if they were supposed to get really soft because they didn't, but my bf and I didn't mind although my dad didn't seem that into them (not even sure he likes plantains anyway.) I am stoked to eat leftovers of all of this!

Thanks! I wouldn't say my guest is uber sensitive, but just not overboard with the peppery spice. I looked over the recipe and it doesn't look too spicy--only calls for two jalapenos heat-wise, and I'll use two small ones and de-seed them so there's just a bite of hot zest in the dish. I've really been looking forward to making those enchiladas. PPKers are always saying how delicious they are.
