Just got this from the library, but nothing's calling to me. What do I need to make before I return it?

I don't have my book in front of me at the moment, but there is a cheesy roasted chickpeas (with nutritional yeast) and a corresponding salad that rocks!! I make it frequently!

I like the lentil-rice balls with tomato sauce.

i own this cookbook and admittedly i don't use it much except for the roasted chickpeas, but last year for Thanksgiving my sister and i made the mini wellingtons (i think that's what its called in the book) into 2 big wellingtons and i think it was great, she even has a stuffed pepper variation if you don't want to use puff pastry. I've been meaning to try her pot roast recipe because i saw a pic on someone's blog and it looked awesome but i never seem to have all the ingredients for it

I have both this and Vegan Lunch Box Around the World. I don't use either much, but Around The World has an awesome recipe for char sieuw (?) tofu puffs. Basically tofu puffs, soy sauce, brown sugar (I use maple syrup) and five spice powder baked until chewy. Awesome!

the cauliflower soup is good, as are the directions to make your own pigs-in-a-blanket

I like the lunchbox fondue a lot, but I think it's better if you replace some of the carrots with roasted red peppers. There's also a bread recipe in there that's really good (or, at least, it's the first bread recipe I tried that actually worked the way it was supposed to on the first try, and it got me over my fear of yeast), and there's a seitan pot roast thing that I like, though I usually get lazy and skip the step with pureeing the sauce.

I really love the croissants, which are less time consuming than they seem since mostly it's just flip, roll, rewrap, and wait. A lot of the recipes tend a bit towards kid-friendly bland, like the fondue.. I haven't made the wellingtons but my favorite, decidedly alcoholic and non-kid friendly but gourmet and dinner party worthy, wellington recipe is in the Cafe Flora cookbook. (It's not naturally vegan but I sub soygurt + corn starch for the eggs and use a daiya-FYH mozz mix for the cheese in the pate)

I've made a bunch of stuff from VLB Around the World, and those recipes I like a lot, though after a week of trying to make them for actual lunches I felt run ragged.
