Just wanted to show some love for this cookbook. I made the carrot butter today and it's amazing. Next up is Southern Fried Tofu and Ravigote dip. Other favorites?

The garlic gravy is great! We have it every year on Thanksgiving. I used to make more out of that book, but I can't remember anything else off the top of my head.

I haven't cooked out of that book in ages, but I remember really liking the Messy Mikes and Aunt Bunny's Carrot Cake.

When I first went vegan - i loved this book. I can't remember much of what I made, but the mushroom soup was definitely nice, and very easy.

I love, love, love this cookbook. I've been using recipes from it for 10+ years. My favorites are the Southern Fried Tofu, Cauliflower Paprikash, Seitan Pot Roast, and the Greek Salad (not sure of the official name). The southern tofu is the best, though! I like to cook it in lots of oil until it's really dark. Good stuff.

I 2nd everyone's love for the "Muffins that taste like donuts." But my absolute favorite recipe is the Crock Cheese; even omnis love it and don't realize they're eating tofu! And she has a nice section on marinades for tofu, tempeh and seitan.

My husband loves the chuckwagon stew so much he mentions it constantly! (I think it's ok, but I'm not crazy about it like he is.)

I don't own this cookbook, but I had veggie burgers at a potluck yearssss ago that came from a recipe from VV, and I found the recipe online and it is the only veggie burger recipe I ever eat. I'm so glad to know the rest of the book is good, I'll be checking it out for sure!

I made those donut muffins, but I don't find them sweet enough. (My boyfriend disagrees.) Also I don't like that this book doesn't have a list of all the recipes anywhere.

The pumpkin bread is beyond excellent. I omit the nuts.

The pilgrim pie in here (with some adaptations) is really good. Ive made it to serve to omnis as well. No way would I use instant potatoes though, except in a pinch; at least not now, though in college I used to use them as the recipe says. I also use margarine instead of oil, put some pats of margarine on top, and use nooch on top too. The thyme gravy along with the small cubes of tofu make it really good. I also always used freshly cooked veg rather than a premix, but thats just a matter of preference and availability.

Crazyness! I happened to get a notice about new posts about this book while I LITERALLY have the pumpkin bread in the oven AS I'M TYPING THIS! I was so excited when I made it tonight for the first time - I had leftover pumpkin, looked through the indexes of all my cookbooks for something I could make with it, found this and couldn't believe it took literally 5 minutes to pull together and pop into the oven! I got 20 minutes to go till it's out.

Just an update. I've now eaten the pumpkin bread and it was really good! Can't believe it was so simple to make and is totally healthy enough to be considered a snack or breakfast, not a treat, but it tastes so decadent and delicious!
P.S I threw in some chocolate chips just for fun. Worked well.

The chili bean macaroni is really good. We usually use a 28 ounce can of tomatoes in it.

The Better Than Burgers is my go to recipe. I know it by heart and make them often. Every time I do, my hubby raves about how good they are. The other recipe I make very frequently is the Unstuffed Shells. I'll also make just the filling part for lasagna, etc...

I just got this book last week (thanks rohai!) and this recipe looked good - I think I will try it soon (once I eat all the stuff in my freezer! haha).

Can anyone talk me through the differences between editions 1 and 2 of this book? Is the 2nd one all of the first one but with more, or are some left out?

I have both the original and the updated editions. The newer version is a bit bigger and has new animal stories and pictures. The recipes are mix of ones from the original book and ones from her other books. I think the updated VV is quite different from the first VV. I like both.
