ooh deearess, I just saw your post and I think the salt is just for flavor! I say this just 'cause I forgot to put it in once. I bet you wouldn't have any structural problems or anything.

has anyone made the Drunken Beans? i think it's the last bean recipe I haven't made yet and I'm fixing to soak my beans (I'm actually using "red chili beans" instead of pintos 'cause thats what the Whole Foods bulk section had). Wondering if they will end up too spicy with 2 serranos and all that chorizo. Then again, it is a whole pound of beans!

Whereabouts in Cheshire are you? Just over the border here Yuca abounds!

Last night for dinner I made the coconut rice (already a favorite around here), refried beans, sweet plantains, and braised kale. We had some tortillas and avocado on the side. This meal was so delicious. I whipped it up in about 40 mins- 1 hour on a weeknight which is usually longer than I want to spend but it was such a comforting meal.

I love this book! I bought it right before moving from the US to Denmark, hoping I could cook the recipes to remind me of home (I grew up in the American Southwest). At first it took me a while to find many of the ingredients, not even things that sound so exotic (ie, cilantro/coriander, sweet potatoes, cornmeal), but now this is our most-used cookbook.

Even though we can't get seitan or wheat gluten or any kind of masa here, my family back home sends me chile powders and we have really enjoyed these:

Refried beans
Guatita stew (with chickpeas)
Fresh avocado salsa
corn pancakes
orange mojo tofu
chimichurri tofu

Every time we cook from this book it's like taking a mini-vacation home.

I just made the Green Posole and I had to get on here after eating it just to tell everybody how much I loved it! It's awesome, especially with avocado + fresh lime + tortilla chips like she recommends.

I'm not gonna lie though. I did cheat a little. I used a can of crushed tomatillos instead of fresh (I don't know how to pick them out!) and a small can of roasted green chiles to save time. I also used dried corn instead of canned hominy because it was what I had in my pantry. Oh, and frozen spinach instead of fresh chard. But regardless, it was still amazing! I'm looking forward to taking it to work the next couple days.

I made the creamy potato soup with avocado for friends last night, and wow, that was a great decision. The soup is delicious alone but the toppings bring it to a whole new level of awesome.

Question: I'm planning on making the red-chile seitan tamales tomorrow. I was reading through the recipe for the sauce and the ingredients calls for a can of diced tomatoes and the recipe refers to adding the tomato sauce...not sure which to use. If you've made it successfully and could let me know, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, guys!

I made the Chickpea-Potato Enchiladas with Green Tomatillo Sauce. I used soaked cashews insted of pinenuts and parsley instead of cilantro. So good! Why don't I ever make enchiladas?

I was just looking at that in the index earlier wishing I had tomatillos! Mail-order? I tried growing them once in England, but they never carried any fruit (too cold in the house, I guess), so I gave the rest of my seeds to my mum.

Yep. I used canned ones ordered from here. I also got various chilies, epazote, masa harina, and my beloved Cholula. A bit of an indulgence, but hey I have to eat!

I made them once. I assumed the ingredients were correct and used diced tomatoes, since you puree it after that anyways.

Mmm, eating leftovers of the creamy corn-crusted tempeh pot pie. It's SO good. Someone said above that making stuff from this cookbook feels like a mini-vacation and it's so true.

That might be my favorite in the book.

Also, I always use canned tomatillos even though their fresh brethren are plentiful here. Who has time to get them out of their jackets and clean off that sticky stuff anyway? Well, I probably have the time but not the energy. I use the fresh ones for stuff that is going to be raw, like salsa, but if it's going to be cooked, always canned.

I folded and got this book. Love it!

Have made the Gallo Pinto - I have tried so many recipes since discovering this stuff in CR last year and its the closest one to what I remember. To be fair I think with out the salsa linzano or it being made by a costa rican or eaten in costa rica, Its never going to be the same.

The orange mojo and chimichurri tofu are to die for. Amazing! There is life beyond coriander.

Trying to get hold of some pan harina for arepa;s; I fell in love with these in Colombia last year as well (it was a good food trip) so can't wait to make these.... and have my eye on so many of the bean recipes... this book is joy!

I was trying to think of something to do with tempeh to feed a couple of omnis last night so I replaced the tofu in the Orange Mojo Tofu recipe with it. I wasn't sure if it would work but it did, it was awesome and two tempeh virgins liked it too! YAY.

Ooh, I am so excited to see that site! I'm in Denmark and have been ordering some products from the UK, but shipping is so expensive--I'm going to try this Swedish one next time!

Not sure if they ship abroad? Shipping is often expensive and if a shop does ship internationally it tends to be killer. Worth checking, though. This particular one has physical shops in Gothenburg and Stockholm, but I'm rarely in either of those cities these days (though I do harass friends going there to bring me back Marmite at least once a year).

Ooh, I might have to stock up, but most of the dried chillies seem to be sold out right now. My nearest ICA branch actually sells marmite, albeit in very small jars. I found it when I was looking for mushroom bouillon.

I have a question regarding the Latin Baked Tofu variations: are you supposed to use the peanut sauce/sofrito in addition to or instead of the red marinade? I wasn't sure and couldn't wait 50 minutes for my tofu, so I omitted the red marinade, dumped some sofrito on the tofu and baked it for half an hour - it was good, but I suspect that I should have used the marinade as well?

Also, I made the Peruvian Potatoes with Spicy "Cheezy" Sauce a couple of days ago and I loved, loved, loved them! They don't seem to get much love in this thread, which makes me sad - they are amazing!

Made the Potato Chorizo soup with kale and it's super good. I froze some and am having some for lunch today. I also have two links of leftover chorizo in the freezer and just went grocery shopping and picked up the fixins' for Potato and chorizo taquitos with red chile sauce and refried beans, which I'll make this Canada Day long weekend. And busting out my first pitcher of limeade for the summer season, which is now a tradition for me all through the summer. Yum!
