I made the peanut dragon dressing for our bowls last night and I'm so happy I made a double batch. I could drink it straight up. I might leave out some of the water next time so it's a little thicker.

I liked the flavor of that dressing, but did find it way too thin. I'm not too concerned at the moment about 'reducing', so I added peanut butter to thicken it up. Next time, I will just use peanut butter and not whole peanuts, because they were kind of gritty in all that water.

I made the Masala Baked Tofu last night, and served it with dhal and baked cumin rice. It was like having takeaway, but better!

Quick question: For the moroccan chickpeas, approximately how big are the zucchinis supposed to be? Like the size of a banana? Zucchinis are so variable!

This is the first recipe book I've bought twice, I had it and wasn't really feeling it so passed it on, but then read this thread (it's taken me 5 days to read the whole thing!) and I have bought it again.

Having chickpea piccata and caulipots for tea tonight (and for the next few nights as I only cook for me so it had better be good!)

There are so many things I want to try I'm going to set a challenge of one recipe a week so I can plough through to find my favourites.

Trattoria pasta with sun-dried tomato walnut vinaigrette
-omitted the fennel in the dressing but really liked this
-I also omitted the pasta to make this a white bean and arugula salad
-yum!

Chipotle Brussels and Bean Chili
-I subbed kabocha squash for the sweet potatoes and ended up adding another 15 oz can of diced tomatoes since it was not soupy enough
-I don't think I liked it as much as others have raved about it

I wasn't a fan of that recipe, surprisingly. I love all the separate components so was sure it would be a winner but I found it strangely bland. I ended up throwing some away cause I just couldn't face eating the leftovers :(

Well just finished my first bowl of the piccata, I have had nothing like it before, it's confused my mouth!

I think I'd have preferred it without the lemon juice, but I'm assuming that's a big part if it being piccata?

i had the bean pasta spinach thingie (cant remember the name right now) and found it a bit bland. also had the 40 garlic chickpeas which I didnt like, but it might have been that something was off. It just tasted a bit "weird", so maybe it was my ingredients.

Just made 4 of the dressings from this book for salad I'm serving for a party. Each one is more delicious than the last! Seriously, I love them all.

- Caesar Chavez Dressing: does not taste exactly as I remember caesar tasting, but I think it's even better! Love the brininess of the capers.
- Peanut Lime Dragon Dressing: perfect peanut dressing, though as others have said here I may thicken it more next time. Great kick from the Sriracha.
- Romesco Dressing: if I absolutely had to pick a favorite, this may be it. I think I could just drink this stuff straight. It's almost creamy from the almonds, and there's a note of kinda cheesiness to it that reminds me of pizza or something. Super duper addictive.
- Orange Sesame Vinaigrette: yummy, bright, tangy dressing that benefits from the balance of nutty and citrusy. I would imagine this could be great on a pasta salad.

Beethecookie, if you liked the other dressings you have to try the goddess one too! That is my go to salad dressing when I need something not specific, and I also use it as a veggie dip for snacks. I totally agree with allularpunk - the dressings along with the bowl suggestions in the back of the book totally opened up my eyes and made transitioning the dairy out of my diet much easier.

Glad I am not the only one! I thought I would like it too but alas not so much... I gave it to Rob to polish off the leftovers. ;)

Yeah, that's piccata for you! I loved that recipe, though. I also love all things lemon. :)

Just in case anyone is wondering, I used about 1.5 lbs and I think the ratio was about right. Super tasty! I'll probably make this again.

Yeah, I was eyeing the goddess dressing when I was looking through, but I already have a very similar dressing in my fridge (the bottled kind) and was looking for ones that were different from what I had on hand. It did look wonderful, so I need to throw a bookmark in there and make that once the others are all used up.

The Sanctuary is also on the to-do list!

Oh man, I can't believe it took me this long to make 40 clove garlic chickpeas with broccoli. I made it last night and honestly I was perplexed with how much I loved it and how stupid-easy the recipe was. I declare this is going into the rotation! Served it with some basmati rice, sriracha and a little soy sauce.

Oh yes, this recipe rocks. I've been doing the spring cookbook challenge and haven't cooked from AFR for 2 weeks. But now I must have this for dinner.

I just made Sanctuary Dressing and I'm happy for the rest of my life now.

I posted this in the wrong thread just now because I'm high on Sanctuary dressing.

Just made the romesco dressing recently- I made bowls with it using quinoa, white beans and greens but discovered it's also great for dipping carrots in :)
