last night i made the southwestern tofu burgers and kale and cauliflower salad.
the salad was a hit. i steamed both the kale and cauliflower lightly. i was hesitant because i thought the whole thing was going to be really bland and boring but the sauce really made it.
even my husband liked it and had two helpings and he doesnt like kale.

the burgers were pretty good too. i think i made them too thick so they were kind of monster burgers.
we ate them like a regular burger with ketchup, mustard, and a bun. i was thinking of making some sort of avocado spread to go on it and some salsa to go with the southwestern theme but i got lazy and did ketchup and mustard.

tofu that you freeze and then dethaw freaks me out but it definitely worked

My fav recipe from this book is the pad thai. It's incredibly unauthentic (made with peanut butter!), but it's so easy and tasty. We make it all the time.

Me too! I made it last night, actually. I'm usually extra lazy and just make the sauce and add it to rice noodles, tofu, and kale (skipping all the other ingredients + steps). I like using mostly lemon juice with a bit of lime in there.

I also like her greens with miso-tahini sauce. I think that's what it is; haven't made it in a while. And the potato salad which is basic but yummy.

I made the tempeh shawarmas last week and served them in mountain bread. Boyfriend lost his shiitake over them. It's always nice when you get that kind of reaction from a really quick, simple recipe. These will definitely go into my rotation.

i love the shawarmas too!
it's basically the only way i will eat tempeh.
i add peanut butter to the sauce to take the edge off a bit.

I can't get over how outstanding these recipes are. Real food made from fresh, whole ingredients. So satisfying! I have a feeling I'll be making everything in this book.

Things I've made so far:
- African Peanut & Sweet Potato stew - I served it over spaghetti sort of like African peanut noodles. SO GOOD.

- Red Lentil and Artichoke Stew - just ok on its own or with brown rice. BUT it is super amazing on bowtie pasta with marinara, nooch, cilantro, and lemon juice.

- Marvelous Mushroom Risotto - AMAZING. I used a mix of wild mushrooms from the farmer's market, and the result was outstanding. Totally impressed my omni bf.

- Blackberry Pecan Crisp - added the optional peaches. also incredible! this was gobbled up within a couple days.

- Basil Pesto - fast and fresh

- Lemon Pesto - liked this even better than the plain basil version. my new go-to pesto recipe!

- Penne Pasta with Fresh Veggies - nothing super exciting, but lots of fresh flavors.

- Garlic and Greens Soup - the ingredients list sounds boring, but the result is fantastic. so hearty and warming.

I made the miso salad dressing and the masoor dal. Both were very good. The salad dressing is easy and really delicious. The dal has an unusual technique. Usually the dal is cooked first and then the seasoning oil with the spices is heated in another pan and added at the end. This recipe cooks the onions and garlic in the spices at the beginning and then adds the water and dal. Its nice in that you use only one pot but I don't think you get the same flavor as using the traditional method. The dal could use more spice, I added more to my taste. Also added some spinach, lima beans and peas at the end to add more veggies. Very good over brown rice :)

I cooked our entire Thanksgiving feast from the Vegan Table! The old fashioned lentil loaf was the main entree, served with broccoli with garlic butter and cashews, garlic green beans, gashed yukon gold and sweet potatoes, golden mushroom gravy, and sensational stuffing with nuts. My parents loved everything!

does anyone else make the mac n cheese recipe from this book with any regularity?

it is my favorite mac n cheese recipe hands down but i always have a couple problems.

1. i can never get the miso to incorporate into the sauce. it has you put it in basically at the end and no matter what i do when im pouring out the sauce there are always big blobs of miso. today i tried putting little dollops into the food processor while it was running thinking the smaller dollops would incorporate easier. it didnt work. i dont know if my food processor is on the small side but there is also way too much liquid for my food processor to handle and if i turn it off then back on again while its that full it comes out the sides and regardless it drips out the bottom when i take the bowl off so i am wary to keep turning it on and off to see what's going on with the miso. i dont know if there is a specific reason the miso is added in at the end or if i could pour a little of the milk/oil mixture in the food processor, then the miso and get that combined then pour in the rest of the milk/oil

2. i always make the baked version and my bread crumbs never get brown. ive left it in way longer than it says and no brownage. should i put it under the broiler for like a minute? i would like to get that nice crunch on the top but never do

Maybe the cookbook author just uses a more liquidy miso? I can only ever get mine to incorporate smoothly if I whisk like crazy or use an immersion blender.

As not breadcrumbs, broiler and maybe add a touch of olive oil spray or another fat.

I don't have this book nor have I tried the recipe so take my input with a grain of salt!!
