Why are caulipots so good? I can eat a whole recipe by myself! Especially with chickpea gravy and cranberry sauce.

Oh yes. I made them today. Soooo good and perfectly crispy. Even with the Asian/Middle Eastern mashup I ended up with, pairing them with Ful Mudammas and a salad with leftover dressing and gremolata from yesterday's Vietnamese Noodle Salad (also a great recipe). The mint definitely went well with the potato pancakes and the Ful wasn't a bad pairing for them either.

Are they hard to make? I keep re-reading the recipe, and I haven't found the time to try out a trickier recipe.

They are very easy to make! Don't be afraid. They require very little hands-on time, really. Apart from boiling the potatoes and the baking it honestly took me minutes to make these.

Why doesn't the butternet kidney bean jambalaya thing get more attention? We made it last night for the first time, and it's probably in my top 5 from this book.

I love it too, it's awesome. Which reminds me I haven't made in ages.

Awesome! I'm going to have to make them for dinner tomorrow.

I love those. It's my go to for a quick Mexican dinner. Although, I normally use black olives instead of katamala, but that's mostly due to what I have in my pantry at any given time.

Made the scallion potato pancakes last week. Good! Mine took ages to cook though and the colour wasn't nearly as nice as the ones in the book. Next time I'll toast the panko in a dry pan first (a trick I learnt for making traditionally fried non-fry Japanese dishes).
Also made the sweet and salty baby carrots. So tasty and more-ish. I would have happily eaten the whole dish myself.

I love the everyday chickpea quinoa salad! I could eat it every day! I add roasted garlic and chopped vegan hotdogs :)

Yes. Those carrots are sooo good. It's the kind of recipe that you're kind of kicking yourself for not thinking of. Luckily Isa did.

I just made the Eggplant Chickpea Curry! It's soooo good! I'm not an eggplant lover at all, but this dish is absolutely amazing.

Quinoa Puttanesca was my dinner tonight! Ridiculously easy and quick, and it was soo tasty with the olives and capers. I was quite surprised at how filling it was. I can easily see this becoming a weekly dinner for me.

I think I make the basic tofu about once a week now. It's so easy and goes with anything. I usually bake it in the marinade as I never remember to make it ahead of time and it always works out well, just takes a bit longer in the oven.

We made the Arabian Lentil Soup again today. I've made this at least 2 times prior, and it's never been this good. We simmered it for an extra 10 minutes, as suggested, threw in extra lemon zest instead of completely forgetting to buy lemons, and added an extra pint or so of water. It was so delicious and bright and creamy. I'm swooning over a soup!

I made the miso udon noodles with greens and beans last night and it was so fast and easy. I think if I had put all of the salt called for it might have been too salty for me though, with the miso. I usually make recipes as exactly as possible the first time and I did this time except for the salt. Of course, it was even better with a few squirts of sriracha at the table but I will definitely put this into rotation using whatever greens I have available.

I can do fast and easy but what I really want is fast and easy and tasty, so for that I usually need a recipe and this cookbook is excellent for that.

Oh yeah, I made the broccoli chowder for the umpteenth time a few days ago and it is even better the next day. I usually sub carrots for parsnip because I only occasionally have parsnips, and this time I added some basil. I used to make a similar soup with cow milk and I find (plain unsweetened) almond milk to be much better tasting in chowders.

I made the portobello pepper steak stew again last night. Definitely one of my favourites and I am excited to have the leftovers tonight with mashed potato! YUM.

And I lucked out a found a portion of the quinoa kale bean stew thing in my freezer last night so I defrosted it and had it for lunch today. I need to do that more often - make a big batch of stuff and freeze it.

Finally made the Summer Lovin' Curried Veggie Chowder (or whatever the actual name is, LOL) tonight, with all the veggies from our local produce box. It turned out great. After not having any corn for a while now we are getting a ton of it so it was good to use up several ears (it took 5 small ones to equal 1 3/4 cup because I had to break the ends off of all of them). It wasn't really colorful because I only had a golden zucchini so there was a lot of yellow, but it was very tasty with the French baguette that we also get at the same pickup. I didn't have arrowroot powder, so I used cornstarch and it seemed to work fine.

my husband hates mango (i clearly didn't know that when I married him - he hates raspberries and quinoa too - what?!) but he liked the bbq beans and suggested adding pineapple in addition to mango.

i've been w/o my cookbooks for like 3 weeks now and as soon as I get them back I am going to cook like everything in AFR I haven't made yet.

sometimes i add more coriander and lemon - makes it even yummier, i think.

I've been trying to use up things I have rather than buy more groceries, and I was going to make the scallion cornbread today because I thought I had everything I needed. As it turns out, when I checked this morning, I have corn grits/polenta (Bob's red mill brand, if that makes a difference), but no cornmeal. Has anyone tried throwing the grits in a food processor and then using them in the place of cornmeal? I Googled it and got mixed answers and now I'm confused!

I want to use up the grits because the polenta recipe I bought them for long ago wasn't really to my taste. It was my first time ever eating polenta and I just didn't like it, so now the bag has been sitting in my fridge for a long time. But I don't want to make the bread and have it turn out inedible and have to throw it out. Help?

I've never tried it, but I was curious so I googled and it sounds like it would work - I'd give it a go, personally.

Yeah, I make this weekly as well, but always forget to marinade. Instead, I make it without the veggie broth (so it is more pungent/strong) and microwave the tofu+marinade for a couple of minutes, then cooking according to directions.

I will try just baking in the marinade next time! If I have a baking container that will work for it. Mine might all be too big...hmm.
