I don't know if it's in the book, but the BLT salad or whatever from the blog was gah-ross. Don't try it. It sounds like a great idea but is not good.

That's odd because I tried that recipe and even my mom loved it. To be fair, I adapted it heavily subbing olive oil for Vegenaise in the dressing, making Isa's tempeh bacon instead of buying pre-made, and leaving out the tomatoes. That dressing is so so good and introduced me to the wonderfulness that is kale salad.

I've also made the apple cider brussels sprouts a few times for Thanksgiving and everyone loves them.

I can't remember how many recipes I tested, but it was at least 20 or 30.

I refused to ask for my tester copy. I had all the recipes I wanted from the tester forum anyway.

I adore this cookbook and we've loved everything we have made from it so far.

My favorite is the Creamy Broccoli Mushroom Bake - This is fabulous and really gives me that creamy casserole feel i've been missing. I can't say enough about this recipe. It makes quite a bit too. Great to take to work as leftovers. I've made it for my son's birthday party too.

Pepita Fettucini w/ Spinach and Cranberries - This was excellent and the sweet salty flavor was excellent. It was a bit dry when I reheated the next day, but I think I microwaved it a little too much. I might add a splash of water next time when re-heating.

Italian Rice and Beans - Great and makes great leftovers. Love the pine nut and sun dried tomatoes in it. I didn't have lemon zest so I omitted it.

Golden Chickpea and Artichoke Salad - Slightly dry and I may add more oil next time. The dryness doesn't make it taste bad though. I really like this. I've made this a few times and it's great for a quick pull together for lunches.


There are still tons of recipes I want to try.

This makes me sad.

Anyone got the iPhone app? It's pretty great, I think it cost less than the book and had almost all of the book's recipes in it (plus more).

I didn't dig the Italian Rice and Beans. And I was super excited to make the chard on toast points but I've gone gluten free so I subbed the Bob's Red Mill GF flour and used rice bread and it wasn't good. Maybe it's better the original way?

I remember as a tester that I liked the aloo matar, the pad see ew, and the cauliflower red & white bake.
I think there was a kale + noodle + protein + lime-peanut sauce dish that I tried again later & really liked with buckwheat soba noodle, carrot strips, kale shreds, and tempeh.
The cinnamon bread rose like mad for me.
Again, I tried all of that as a tester, so not sure if it changed as a cookbook. (Never got a tester copy either, can't recall how many I tested.)

I think the Italian rice and beans was also good for a quick dinner.

The diy worchestershire sauce was also good. (Apologies if this seems like a duplicate post, something odd going on w/ editing functions.)

Did you guys all ask for a tester copy when the book came out last year? She wasn't able to keep the addresses from the first time around, I don't think

i vote "bleck" on the hurry up alfredo also. i couldn't eat it.

LOVE rainbow rice and beans-crazy easy and so good! vegetable fried rice was nice too.

hmm... i guess i haven't made all that much from the book after all. i'm in a pretty serious relationship with veganomicon.

I don't think I've had anything bad from this book. I don't really like that most recipes are for only two servings. The things I absolutely love are:
-Chard Florentine on Toast Points
-Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread (love love love love love love)
-Broccoli Almond Sweet and Sour Tofu
-Tahini Lemon Rice and Beans
-Glazed Green Bean Salad
-Smoky Miso Tofu Sanwiches (if I don't have bread, I'll make the tofu and just eat it on its own sometimes--I've made this so many times)

lets just keep this thread to talking about the recipes in the cookbook. complaining about tester copies of a book that came out a million years ago is just going to turn this thread into something bad.

I regularly make the smoky miso tofu and love it. I made something else with kasha that I didn't like. I tested a bunch but don't remember what. I think those are the only two I made since the book came out.
I am terrible about not making recipes from books I test a lot for when the book finally is published. I tested the poundcake from Veganomicon 3 times and it is fine but I haven't made it since. Foole.

Oh wait. I also made that chickpea tomato soup and though the texture was bad.
There was some sort of risotto with barley that I tested that I remember as good, but of course I haven't made it again. Now I just want poundcake.

I didn't like the soup either and I didn't like the barley. I would like poundcake though.

I actually might sell this book to the used book store except I wrote in it - I'm generally disappointed in most of the things I've made from it.

We should start a PPK cookbook trade thread - I bet someone would trade you for it.

My boyfriend just gave me this book for Christmas. It definitely wasn't on the list of cookbooks I had any interest in getting, but he was so adorable with his recon-ing to make sure I didn't have it (covert cell phone pics of my cookbooks when he'd be over, a giant stack of fibs to trick me into an adorable boy-made surprise dinner with recipes from the cookbook) that I now do not have the option for a trade without a guilty conscience. I went to this thread hoping to find things about it to make me like it, but instead it just made me dislike it more than the disinterest I previously had. Ha, figures.

Basically, what I got out of this, is that the saving grace (food wise) is the cinnamon bread.

Good idea - give me time to make another recipe or two.
