I just bought this book today, and am so excited to start cooking up recipes from it. I know I'll probably make the autumn root salad with maple-fig dressing right away, but what else is really good?

Ooh Penne Vodka is a good one. I haven't made it in ages since I don't have any vodka. Sadly, they don't sell mini bottles here...

My faves are:
chickpea noodle soup
black bean burgers
southwestern corn pudding
chocolate bundt cake
pumpkin cake
banana bread
cauliflower lentil curry
(sorry if the names aren't spot on, I'm going from memory)

I make the Spaghetti and Beanballs once a week. I also love the Portobello/Avocado Salad, Carmelized Onions and Lentils, and Chickpea Cutlets. The Pumpkin Penne is delicous, but a little too tedious and expensive to make all the time.

Everything. Absolutely everything.

Specifically?
-Mousaka
-Seitan Pot-Pie
-Tempeh Shepherdess Pie
-Mac Daddy
-Chickpea Noodle Soup

Why do I feel like I've made way, way, way more than I really have?

As if you don't have enough ideas already. . .

-black-eyed pea/collard green roll-ups
-southwestern corn pudding
-lemon/pea risotto with roasted red peppers
-rumnog pecan cookies
-Prospect Park potato salad

I know I'm forgetting a bunch; this cookbook is fantastic.

- lower fat banana bread pg 228, i can't even count how many times i've made it. i usually make muffins with this recipe.
- baked BBQ tofu
-brooklyn deli macaroni salad
- mac daddy
- tofu florentine
- almond-quinoa muffins (omgomg)
- black bean burgers
- spinach linguine with basil-cilantro pesto

honestly, these are the only recipes i've tried from this book, but i was amazed by all of them. the only one i've made but didn't like was the quinoa-black bean-mango salad. i think it's because i put too much quinoa in,though, or something...it was my own error that ruined the recipe.

have fun!
this thread make me look through my v-con again and MAN there are so many delicious-sounding recipes in here! i've gotta make a point of using more of them.

Everything I have tried has been good, some stupendous, and best of all everything turns out. I only have a few cookbooks that I can trust like that.

I concur with all the suggestions but wanted to add:

Rosemary Foccaccia - easiest recipe ever, I make the dough in my breadmaker and also use it without rosemary for pizza crust
Saffron garlic rice - my 11-y.o. says "I don't like rice, but I like that rice." Especially with Chickpeas Romesco
Lemony roasted potatoes
Banana date scones

Thanks for all the suggestions! I've been looking up a bunch of recipes from the ones you've all listed, and they all sound so good. It's going to be so hard deciding what to make first!

So one of the bright spots of Livi's hospital stay was the soldier/nurse who secretly confessed to having been a vegan for 3 years and confessed to her love of Veganomicon, VCIYCJ and VCTOTW. She was appropriately impressed when I told her I knew Isa and Terry.
