here is a good anecdote for everyone.
i got this book last xmas i believe. im very intimidated by it for some reason but ive flipped through it alot and made 1-2 things.
everytime i flip through i see the tangerine baked tofu and i ALWAYS read it as "nectarine" baked tofu.
i LOVE nectarines
so recently i decided to make this magical "nectarine" baked tofu.
i looked at the recipe several times to get the ingredients and read through it.
i went out and bought three nectarines.
i read the recipe again as i was making it and continually referred back to it while preparing.

I SQUEEZED THREE NECTARINES which is no easy task.

i like to write in my cookbooks what i thought about the recipe and any tips i have. so after i ate it i went back to the recipe AGAIN and wrote that it was good but a bit of a pain to make since you have to squeeze nectarines, a semi hard fruit.


i took my lil bookmark/page saver out and closed the book and then realized i also wanted to write that i had only cooked it 35 mins instead of 45 mins before the marinade started to really burn to the pan (i still have not gotta that damn pan clean) and then AND ONLY THEN when i couldnt find the recipe in the index did i realize it was TANGERINE baked tofu.

I. AM. A. MORON.

that being said the nectarine baked tofu tasted pretty good!

Tonight, I made the Almost All American Seitan Pot Pie. I think I messed up the seitan again (I boiled the broth before I added the seitan instead of starting it in cold broth). It was a bit spongy. Though maybe that's normal for seitan. The vegetable mix was probably the best part, even though I didn't have any dry mustard. (My daughter cleaned out my spice cabinet and threw away stuff she thought was too old). Anyhow, I think it has turned out okay and will be posting a picture in the food porn section.

Haha! That's hilarious, especially the squeezing. I've totally done things like that--it's funny (and sometimes scary) how once our minds make a mistake, it is easy to repeat it over and over. I'm glad it turned out for all that work, but I'm guessing you won't be recommending the variation for Isa's new cookbook? ;)

LisaPunk, you just love nectarines so much you are determined to see them even if they aren't there! I made a similar mistake with the v'con Asparagus Spinach Dip. Somehow I read artichoke instead of asparagus and didn't realize my mistake until I was in the middle of cooking and like well it's too late now, I guess I'm making a variation on this recipe. It turned out quite well, fortunately.

I've decided I need a project, and I want to make EVERYTHING out of the Veganomicon cook book. It would really help if anyone knows where I can get the 3 page errata for it... I've googled and searched and all I can find is broken links.

I've even thought of contacting the publisher...

I am about 5-6 recipes away from having made everything - it's a fun project! I didn't bother looking up the errata and didn't notice anything too crazy go on with the dishes...

The Samosa Stuffed Baked Potatoes have become my go-to potluck dish. I seem to collect friends with dietary restrictions and allergies, and these are pretty well perfect for everyone – no soy, no nuts, no wheat AND people rave about them. Plus you can make them ahead and they’re still good cold or room-temperature.

Looking them up *right now*! I have a potluck to go to tomorrow... ;) But I actually already decided which dishes to bring (lentil salad, carrot spread and pide bread - none from V'con I'm afraid).

Similar revelation here, Victoire. I finally made the leek and white bean dish with biscuit topping after looking at it for years. I don't know why I thought it would be so annoying to put together. It was easy and delicious.

I made the most delicious yuca fondue sauce inspired by the grilled yuca tortillas. It is basically the same recipe for the grilled yuca tortillas, without the tortillas. I used the sweet potato variation, without the black beans, and 1 can of coconut milk and kept adding water and cooking it down and mashing (I cooked it for a long time, probably longer than needed because I wanted it to be warm when my guests arrived, but a couple hours maybe). I also tripled the spices (salt, white pepper, cumin). I also added maybe 1/4 c nutritional yeast. It was so good, we had it at a veggie potluck and it got a lot of compliments! We dipped bread and cauliflower in it. I wish I had taken a picture.

The individual heart-shaped galettes are So. Good. My grandmother's allergic to apples so I made them with asian pear and cranberry relish instead of apples and apricot jam and they were still amazing.

Wow, is that including all the variations? I really should branch out. I make the same recipes in this cookbook over and over but it's because everyone I try is an instant favorite.

Including *most* of the variations...I was borrowing an ice cream maker so I didn't try all of those, just the vanilla, and I think there are a couple cookie variations I don't plan on doing either. It's fun, and oooohhh so delicious. Made the Pumpkin Streusal Cake last night!

We made the tempeh shepardess pie. It was yummy. Very woodsy - but in a good way.

Has anyone frozen the asparagus quiche (which uses walnuts and white beans) successfully? I know I'd be the only one eating it, so I don't want to have too much and not be able to freeze the extra.

I made the mac daddy last night--not sure why I hadn't tried it before, but it was awesome. I was a little bit dubious, as the sauce seemed a little too simple or something (I'm used to tofu or cashew-based sauces), but I'm so glad I tried it. I am also glad I made a half batch, though, as a half batch was enough for 4 generous servings.

Samosa potatoes. So good. I made some for a family dinner tomorrow and had to eat one they smelled and looked so good. Now I am trying not to eat another. I think this is going to be pretty popular in my house for a while.

I find myself adding more salt to nearly everything. Am I just way too fond of salt?

That's our favorite recipe for Mac & Cheese at my house!! We always do a breadcrumb topping too.

I am making the tamales right now. They are actually steaming. I am having a hard time waiting. Anybody else make these and did you have any filling left over? I have quite a bit. Not complaining. Thinking of having it for lunch tomorrow over a baked yam.

Probably just personal taste. I usually add less than the recipes call for, sometimes none at all.

Cauliflower and mushroom potpie with black olive crust is 5 minutes away from being done. I wish I was a faster cook, it takes me forever!

I want to make the broccoli-potato soup with fresh herbs, but I'm on a super limited budget and can't really afford to "splurge" on fresh herbs and I'm out of dried thyme (which is called for). Any suggestions for good dried herb combinations for this soup?
