I've made about 40 recipes from 1000 Vegan Recipes and I loved these:

•Steamed Vegetable Dumplings
•Eggplant and Bell Pepper Salad
•Retro Potato Salad Redux
•Tagliatelle with Porcini Bolognese Sauce
•Three-Lentil Dal
•Millet-Topped Lentil Sheperd's Pie
•Wild Rice and Millet Croquettes
•Spiced Oven-Roasted Potato Sticks
•Ginger-Molasses Bread with Blueberries
•Corn Muffins
•Orange-Chocolate-Chip Muffins
•Cran-Apple Muffins
•Magical Mystery Chocolate Cake
•Crazy for Carrot Cake
•Johnnycakes
•Lemon-Kissed Blueberry Waffles
•Granola-Infused Oatmeal
•Morning Polenta with a Drizzle of Maple Syrup
I don't find RR's recipes bland, although I've heard that a lot... maybe we both have very healthy taste buds ;) And I like that there are simple ideas that never seem to pop into my own head (like cooking granola in oatmeal) as well as complex recipes for when you want a challenge (such as home-made ravioli).

Could someone please explain to me how to fold a strudel? I intend to make the Roasted Vegetable Strudel next saturday for omnis at a birthday party, so I'd like not to mess it up, but I don't understand the instructions.
It's made with phyllo dough. The instructions say: "Spoon the vegetable mixture lengthwise down the center of the phyllo, spreading it to within 1 inch of the edge. Fold in the short edges about 1 inch, then tuck in the sides and roll up."
It's the "tuck in the sides" part I don't get. Are those sides the 1-inch short edges? How could I get a 1-inch border to cover the filling? And why tuck them in if I already folded them? I'm completely mixed up!

It's not very clear is it? I don't think there's any one right way to roll a strudel. You can wrap the filling up like a giant burrito, or spread the filling out and roll like in the pic below, or do more of a braided one (but that doesn't really work with phyllo).

Thank you! I'll roll it like a burrito then.

I made the seitan and cremini mushroom with red wine sauce to serve over mashed potatoes (with just some plain steamed broccoli on the side) for dinners last week. It was simple, weeknight-friendly and super good. I don't like seitan much, either, so finding recipes where seitan is central is a plus for me.

The roasted vegetable strudel was very good - we made three strudels for nine people and we could have done with a fourth.

Made the tempeh moussaka.....

Needed more tomato sauce in the tempeh base, overall was quite dry and bland. Could have used double the silken tofu sauce ( of which I added nooch and miso)

Haven't had a lot of luck with Robin's recipes, they are either lacking spice, seasoning and or dry.

I think she is an old school vegan chef, I much prefer Isa's recipes over hers. They sound great on paper but do not deliver.
