It was me. And it could be specific to certain brands but I always find the Dijon we get here to be much stronger, and I am a big lover of strong mustard. I usually start a US recipe with half of the Dijon called for and then see how it goes.

I made the shakshuka in testing, before the sauce became green, and liked it much more than I expected to, and making the sauce green can surely only make it better.

I used generic dijon (grocery store brand) for the yassa. It was pretty sour and intense but in a good way (for me, at least). I also used jarred minced garlic, which I think added to the intensity too.

it does call for a quarter cup of mustard right? my husband is convinced i measured something wrong.

the sauce was very strong after i mixed it but i wasnt sure if it would mellow out in the oven. it didnt ;-)

i used regular fresh minced garlic. i didnt measure it but i eyeballed it. i love garlic so i dont think that was an issue. i also used a chile and a half. but it wasnt spicy it was like MUSTARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my husband loves sour and spicy food and even he was like "yeah this is almost inedible"

stupid Stop and Shop generic mustard >_<

I made the baigan bartha and the okra one, and the banana-stuffed parathas (I added chocolate chips) - everything was awesome!

I've actually been a bit underwhelmed by both the Yassa tofu and the tandoori tofu; I'm another who felt like it was too much lemon and mustard together for the Yassa.
But holy wow, that tofu scramble banh mi!!! I kept repeating "damn that was a good breakfast" all afternoon. I've made my own occasional bahn mi with canned mock duck before and it's always pretty easy to just wing it, but I really followed the recipe for this one and it was SO worth it! I really like that this book has so many little nifty things like preserves, pickles etc and I think I'll keep some of this daikon on hand for random sandwiches and stuff yay.

That seitan bo bun salad thing is damn good. It took my husband like an hour and a half with the seitan already made, but I imagine it would be quicker for a more experienced cook.

Tonight's dinner was the Deluxe Tofu Vegetable Mafe, and it was incredible. I decided to bake the marinated tofu that's in the recipe, instead of frying it in the pot first. I added it in at the end of the stew's cook time, and it worked just fine. I added some fingerling potatoes because I had them lying around and adding potates is one of the variations at the end of the recipe. I served it alongside a huge bowl of the Fluffy Spiced Couscous from the book, too. Sigh. It left my house smelling divine, too! I am so excited for the leftovers tomorrow!

This is my favorite recipe from the book thus far!

I think I say that about all the recipes. The fact that I'd even want a salad from a cookbook speaks volumes though. I'm trying to eat more of that stuff!

I just got this book for my birthday (well, I bought it for myself using money someone gave me as a gift, so pretty much the same thing). It is lovely, but it is big and I don't know what to make. I am notorious for buying cookbooks and then not actually using them, as I normally just wing it in the kitchen.

Help me decide where to start, please. Bonus points if you can help me use up the three winter squash I have kicking around.

I'm planning on doing my index project in February, so hopefully we will have a better one soon. ;)

At the moment I don't think I'll include any kind of onions in the index because I often sub them and just use whatever I have on hand - I might be convinced to include them, though, if you tell me that you really, really need it... *hint, hint*

My favourite recipes so far are the massaman curry and the coconut black-eyed peas curry. I haven't made anything with pumpkin from the book yet, but I know that there's a curry with pumpkin that I really want to try. I guess I just love curries.

You're awesome!

I feel like I wouldn't need onions unless they were an integral part of the recipe. If it's like sauteing onions before making a soup, pshh, I don't need that.

But maybe, like, if there are caramelized onions? Some kind of special onion preparations that use a ton of onions, that would be useful.

I made the coconut black eyed pea curry. It was a bit of a fail because I only had half a cups worth of coconut milk left over from something I made last week and I had waited a bit too long to use it. I'm sure if it had been fresh it would have tasted a lot better. Damn me being so broke because I'm going to have to eat it for the next 3 nights.

I made the mafe last night (but I used chickpeas instead of the tofu) - IT WAS SO GOOD.

I'm gonna make the Tofu adobe stew but instead of tofu, use up the five-spice seitan I still have in the freezer.
