This is my new favorite cookbook! In the past week, I've made Blueberry Nutmeg muffins, Banana Breakfast Bars, Hearty Chili, and the Basil and Spinach Spread. My husband loves the Blueberry Nutmeg muffins so much that he already wants me to make them again. I'm planning on making the Cinnamon Orange Rolls and the Smoky Curls as soon as the semester is over, and I have the Cheezy Mac on our meal plan for this week.


I really like this book too, it's so much fun. I have to admit though, I'm posting 'cuz I am loving your avatar!! :)


Aww, thanks! I love Richard Ayoade so much. I love to watch IT Crowd episodes while I'm cooking!

You guys, the ooey-gooey brownies from this book are amazing! I made a batch in my brownie edges pan this weekend and they are scrumptious and pretty much perfect. I added the optional 1/2 cup toasted chopped walnuts as I love my brownies nutty. They are SO yum and the texture/crumb is what I want in a brownie. My new favorite in my 'basic classic chocolate brownie' category.

I made these last year and are so good I ate 2 at a time.

"My husband loves the Blueberry Nutmeg muffins so much that he already wants me to make them again."


Indeed! I planned to make the Banana Walnut Muffins in IDI to wow my visiting omni mother-in-law, but realized too late that I'd halved and frozen all the ripe bananas... So I dug out Vegan Diner, and found the Blueberry Nutmeg muffins, for which I had all the ingredients readily available.

They are FABULOUS. I used frozen blueberries, and they are so super blueberry-y, but with a lovely complex flavor. I used coconut sugar in the muffins, and turbinado for the topping, and they have just the right sweetness: not too much, just enough.

To boot, my uber-picky omni pre-teen - who frowned when I revealed the banana muffins were not a possibility, and wailed, "I HATE blueberry muffins" - casually devoured the one I set down for myself, declaring them - upon my return to the room - as "sooooo good, Mom! YOU know how to make blueberry muffins." Win!

Teapot is simmering, awaiting my MIL's arrival on the train. Can't wait to serve them to her with my homemade butter that is chilling <slurp>.

I haven't had any failed recipes out of this book; I really need to use it more, but every time I glance its way, I end up making veggies n dumplings OR smoky curls OR rough rider bbq sauce OR the chili OR panko cutlets OR the simple marinara (so easy and FAB on homemade pizza!). Time to work my way thru it a bit more aggressively.

The chicken style seitan is my new favourite seitan recipe. I replace the water with no-chickn broth and it's great. The steaming makes for NO brainy-ness.

That's funny. I made the chicken style seitan for the first time this week and was completely underwhelmed. The texture was fine, but there was just so little flavor. I'll stick to the seitans in Isa Does It.

This is the one I make most often, though I do decrease some of the spices because it tastes more like thanksgiving turkey as written.

I made a batch of the Smoky Mountain cheese yesterday to go along with bagels from Vegan Brunch. So good. I don't like a really agar-firm cheese, so I decreased the agar from 2t to 1t and it turned out really well -- a somewhat firm spreadable consistence, a bit like a creamy cream cheese in texture.

I made this the other day & can quickly see this becoming my go-to seitan recipe. I prefer the steaming method because it's hands-off & you know it will always come out correctly. I liked the flavor too. I can see it as a perfect topping for salads or pizzas.

My husband & I ate slices for dinner with roasted garlic mashed potatoes covered with 2-Pepper Gravy from the book with fried green tomatoes on the side. The gravy was nice, and especially seemed to go with the garlic in the potatoes, but I still prefer the brown gravy I think.

Spent my entire afternoon reading through all 31 pages of the Vegan Diner love, so I just bought the kindle version. So many recipes bookmarked already, can't wait to delve in!

Just made the mocha muffins. The coffee flavor didn't really come through, so they're more like chocolate chip muffins. Still delicious, though!

I can't remember if I made the chicken style seitan or the other one - I don't have my book, but the instruction said just stir, and don't knead too much and it didn't come out very well so i haven't done any more simmered seitans in this book.

I made the rice burgers for the first time this evening. How have I waited so long to make these? Seriously yummy.

I made two new things tonight, the breakfast sausages and the herbed sage gravy. Both were really tasty! I made a half recipe of the sausages and wish I had gone for the full. The gravy was a bit salty and I'm wondering if I might have forgotten to halve the salt (I made a half recipe of gravy too). I don't think so, and next time I'll just add less and then salt at the end if it needs it.

I'm eating the sausage and gravy over some collard greens right now and it's pretty darn delicious.

Finally got round to making something from this, the seitan from the stew (but not the rest of the stew). It was good! I didn't have enough marmite so it'll probably be even better when I make it properly next time.
