Made the Soy Curl Bacon and it's so good! Reminds me a lot of Stonewall Jerkquee.

The Cheezy Mac in this book is reeeeally good. My husband isn't the biggest fan of nooch and although there is some in the recipe, it was really understated.

Everything I have made from this book has either been:

a) My favourite recipe for this ... dish
or b) Almost my favourite recipe for this dish.

Vegan Diner is awesome! The choc chip cookies are fantastic (and surprisingly low in fat), the mac and cheese is delicious, the scrambles are great, the ooey gooey brownies are fantastic, the BBQ sauce is great, the brown gravy is amazing, and that is all I can think of for now. I can't wait to make more. I'm really impressed by this book.

This weekend I made the Great Smokey Mountain Cheese. Last night, we tried it out as grilled cheese sandwiches. (I added veggie bacon and red onion. No tomato because I have sadly developed a tomoto alergy). Anyway, the sandwiches were really yummy. I think even dairy eaters would like these. The texture of the cheese was nice too. It's thick, but still spreadable. Would be lovely on crackers.

I want to make the pastrami today. If I can create a good seitan pastrami my husband's life will be complete. I'm not sure if it will work with my cheap steamer insert though. How big is the loaf?

I made the Skillet Cutlets last night but subbed my own tomato sauce. They were ridiculously good.

And I have yet another double batch of granola just out of the oven.

Yeah, definitely too big. I'm winging it and trying to bake it.

Let me know how it works out! My steaming apparatus is also pretty small.

I'm curious to hear how it bakes. Steaming makes it super tender, and baking can make it kind of dry and tough. I hope it comes out well.

Next time try making smaller mini loaves to fit inside your steamer. It doesn't have to be one huge one.

Good luck!

The texture of the seitan was pretty good in the oven. I did 350 for about 1:45, wrapped in foil.
i can't say it tasted like pastrami to me, but all seitan seems to taste the same when I make it.

I haven't made anything yet! Not even the cheesy spread but I'll definitely get that one in soon. What do you guys recommend? I'm going to a dinner party/get together on Saturday night and I want to bring something savoury and something sweet.

I can't believe how good those panko crusted cutlets are. I'm eating leftovers right now and granted, I'm pretty hungry, but this tastes like the best thing I've ever eaten in my life.

Tonight I made the Smokey Potato Scramble but I used left over diced pastrami instead of tofu and I added green pepper. The seitan got all brown and crispy and it was delicious.

I checked this out from my library, and I have to say that the seitan recipe is now my go-to. I LOVE the texture, and it is SO EASY. No Kneading! I just sub in other spices for the liquid smoke and smoked paprika to customize the flavors to whatever i need it for that week.

The Skillet baked panko cutlets were amazing as well, although i made them too big the first time. My partner (an omni) loved them, and said it was the best seitan i have ever made. he also liked the above mentioned seitan.

I might buy the book, but to be honest i am trying to lose weight right now, and i dont know if that would be the wisest course of action right now.

It is a really good book.

I made the herbed sausage patties last weekend and I was blown away. Best vegan sausage I've ever had! These will be in permanent rotation. I also recently made the banana chocolate chip bread and that was delicious too.

I just received this cookbook today. SO so excited.
Sounds like those brownies are fantastic!

I love how nice the pictures are. It makes a big difference!

Smoky mountain cheese kicks asparagus. I love it.

Pot roast is superb and reheats very well (not that I made it on Monday and then ate it all through the week!)

And Melissa's Double Cornbread buns are spectacular!

Has anyone made the golden pepper gravy? I made it today and wasn't sure all the liquid was right. It had 2 cups of water in that weren't listed in the ingredients list. I know they don't always include water but the gravy on the opposite page did. I kind of ended up eyeballing liquid but I loved the taste of it and wondered if it's right. It has 3 cups of liquid but says it only yields 1 3/4 cups (I know it thickens).

The yield is a typo that I just found the other day. Sorry about that! And yes, the additional water is correct. The publisher wouldn't let me put the water in the list of ingredients. It's just their writing style.

Thanks Julie! I did love the flavour. They let you put the water in the gravy on the opposite page though! That's what confused me most.

I bought Vegan Diner a couple of weeks ago, & not only is it the most beautifully designed & photographed vegan cookbook I've seen, it's also swiftly becoming my favourite.

I just made the Smoky Mountain Cheeze today & it is so yummy in a toasted sandwich! By far the best of the vegan cheeses I've ever made - & a squillion times better than any commercial cheeses I've tried, which always seem to taste weird & are either chalky or rubbery in texture.

The only tweak I made (& I shouldn't tweak the first time I make something!) was to add 2 teasp of apple cider vinegar because I like my cheese a little tangy - & I added a blob of cashew butter in at the end just for the hell of it.

(BTW, this is my first post - hello!)
