I got this book a week ago. So far I've made the veggie noodle soup (I love the nooch in this!), the tomato soup (good, but a bit too garlicky for me... next time I'll only use 3 cloves and sauté them before putting them in) and the cheezy sandwiches (yum!). My cheese isn't sliceable, though. I don't really mind, but I'm wondering if I maybe didn't cook it long (or hot) enough?

Boyfriend requested the smoky mountain grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner this week. He loves those things- and so do I! He's not even vegan (vegetarian), so I guess it's high praise that he prefers these to 'real' cheese sandwiches.

I tried the quick chili and it was horrible. :( My boyfriend felt sick afterwards and we both didn't like the taste, weird because we both love chili!
I just hate spending 10 euros for food and then the recipe doesn't work out nicely..

that's a bummer :( but everyone has their own tastes. my hubby and I really enjoy it. I wonder if maybe your boyfriend could have a soy allergy and the TVP made him feel ill? But I'd like to add that when we make it we do not use the cocoa powder, I wonder if that's why y'all did not care for its flavor.

We think it was the cumin, to be honest. I did think it was weird to put it in, should probably just not have used it in the first place but I really wanted to follow the recipe (for once...).

I'll try out other recipes for the recipe challenge thing, though! Probably muffins because I like almost all muffins. :D

Aw bummer! I love that chili and cumin is a pretty standard ingredient. Bookworkb, you should try adding the cocoa. I think its really nice.

well back in my pre-vegan days hubby & I once made a chili that either had unsweetened cocoa powder in it or unsweetened baker's choc square. neither of us were very fond of the flavor it added, so when it came time to make julie's chili, i knew to leave it out that particular ingredient.

the banana bread with chocolate chips recipe in julie's book is awesome. really awesome. and just like julie says in the notes, the bread slices freeze and defrost wonderfully. i think i made her pumpkin spice pancakes too, those were great. the brownies are awesome, hubby has requested those for his birthday. i ♥ the chocolate chip cookie recipes in there too. i'm looking forward to this book being a challenge book because i cook the same stuff repeatedly and this will help me try some new recipes!

Weird! I love cumin, especially in chilli. Even the Aussie "mexican chilli" blends have some cumin in them.

I *finally* found agar agar powder locally and I plan on making this too! Glad to hear it go high praises!

It arrived yesterday. I hated that I didn't have time to do much more than quickly leaf through it last night while waiting for my night meds to kick in and then while waiting on a medical appointment this morning. I did manage to put tabs in about half the recipes. Going to be hard to whittle it down for the 2 week challenge!

I agree. I've tried a ton of brownie recipes and have to say this is my absolute favorite.

Thanks for the hint too....I should make these again very soon.

Do you dislike cumin in general? Are you actually using cumin? I know there are a lot of mistranslations happening between English and Swedish (the English cumin is notoriously mistranslated as kummin which is caraway. Spiskummin is the correct translation). Unless my German fail me cumin is Kreuzkümmel.

Cumin is indeed called Kreuzkümmel in German. I love cumin! However, I'd also leave out the cocoa powder - I don't really like cocoa powder in chilis.

When I made the cheeze, I was thinking that it was probably going to be too much for two people and that next time I'd better half the recipe, but it was gone within a few days! It's really, really good and I'll make it again soon.

And damn, those brownies look delicious!

My omni family LOVED the chili from Vegan Diner (even my 17-year-old, who is mostly carnivorous and loves chili on EVERYTHING). Quick and easy! And the cocoa reminds me of my favorite pregan chili I made last summer (I'd never been a chili fan, but that one changed my mind at the time...)

Hey LittleChicken! I get Muir Glen Fire Roasted tomatoes from The Green Edge (you can order online), and Fundies, my local health food store has them too. LOVE 'em.

I'm so looking forward to this in the cookbook challenge. I've bookmarked a lot of recipes. I definitely want to make those brownies. They look amazing.

I'm making it my aim to get my hands on some VWG in time for the challenge. I need to make me some seitan.

I use Kreuzkümmel. I like it on potatoes & bread, etc. So I'm not generally apposed to it.

I just checked the German and Norwegian site and it's a bit confusing indeed that these names are so similar...

I made the meatloaf and two pepper gravy. I liked the meatloaf flavor a lot, but i did not follow the recipe very well based on the ingredients i had on hand and it came out pretty mushy, but was much better after a few days. I also made the two pepper gravy and this is the only recipe I haven't liked. The chickpea flour taste really stands out to me and I can't taste much else. I ended up adding a bunch of nooch to cover up the chickpea flour flavor and my gravy just tastes like nooch now, which isn't the worst thing ever. But I won't make that recipe again.
