I just made the alfredo this week and it was amazing! I made it with whole wheat spaghetti, gardein chikn breasts, broccoli and added some fresh parsley, soooo good. My omni boyfriend and I were eating it up and the leftovers were just as good. It's definitely going to be put in regular rotation, even though I know it is full of fat; it's worth it. Also in my earlier reply, I forgot to mention that the teriyaki bowl is very good and easy.

Can anybody with a copy of this handy tell me if theirs says how much liquid to add to the seitan dough for the wait-for-you stew? It's missing in mine and I can't see that page on Amazon. Thank you!

It's not in the book, but I think on the old boards the author said how much water was needed. I have it in my book at home, but I wouldn't be able to tell you until tomorrow. I looked up a different recipe and they had 1 cup of seitan to 1 1/4 cups water (and some other ingredients including soy sauce).

Thanks! I ended up just using a scant cup and it seemed fine. We'll see!

My apologies, the very first printing of the book doesn't have the quantity in it. It's 1 cup of water, but I recommend keeping a couple tablespoons of water handy just in case. Enjoy!

The seitan recipe in this book is seriously the best I've made. I did the oven-fried chicken and oh my goodness it was so delicious on it's own, but even better with some vegan cream gravy! I really liked how the seitan dough is so pliable that I was able to easily make thin cutlets out of it. I think that's from less kneading time, or maybe the addition of the soy flour (I actually used chickpea flour because that is what I had on hand)? Either way, A++!

Eating a bowl of this right now and have to agree with this statement. I added peas and used rotini.

I'm not wasting macadamia nuts on any Mac and cheese dish, no matter how scrumptious, so I sed all cashews. Macadamia nuts are for cookies!

The seitan chik'n variations are great. I'm so hooked on them and no longer buy the expensive Gardein strips or Boca chik'n patties. Yummy, yummy sandwiches!

I need to get busy trying out more recipes.

Has anyone else made the yellow cake? I'm looking for a nice light, airy, fluffy cake. Wondering how the shortening affects the texture as opposed to oil or margarine.

The yellow split pea soup is fantastic; I make it all the time.
