I want to make the asparagus quiche tonight, but can't find fresh tarragon. I have basil, dill, parsley and chives in the garden, cilantro in the fridge and a handful of dried herbs/spices. I read online that tarragon has a bit of a fennel flavour (I don't think I've ever used it myself, so maybe fresh parsley and a touch of ground fennel? Or maybe sweet basil would be nice? Some other hybrid?

I don't like tarragon very much, but I don't like fennel so that is probably why! I'm sure basil would be lovely.

I have made it with dried tarragon as that was all I had, and it came out delicious. Not sure if it would be even better with fresh tarragon though.

I would use basil or fennel if you want to keep the tarragon flavor.

And basil it is! I actually had trouble not eating the filling straight out of the food processor. Can't wait to see how the finished product is!

(It actually ended up with way too much filling so I got to eat it out of the food processor after)

I made the edamame / corn salad a couple of weeks ago for a barbecue and my parents are now obsessed with it. They've asked me to make it 2 more times when we've had barbecues. I made a massive batch (doubled it) yesterday so today I have leftovers for lunch. yum.

Also I messed with the chickpea cutlet recipe. I used black beans instead of chickpeas and I swapped out the spices for a tsp each (ish) of cumin, coriander, oregano and a bit of chili powder. They were GOOD. My dad binned the leftovers by mistake and I'm so gutted, they would have gone perfectly with the avocado sitting in my kitchen right now.


but everything else is the same?
that sounds GOOD. with some avo-lemon pesto i think i might make this!

yeah, I just left out the lemon zest and garlic because I forgot the garlic and I didn't think lemon zest would go. They were yummy.

I know this won't be news for most of you, but Snobby Joes are sooooo good. I are mine way too fast and am incredibly full now.

I haven't yet made the snobby joe's, but that sounds like good summer fare. It shall get the official sticky note "to make" designation.

I really want to make the Lemon Coconut Bundt cake but I don't have a Bundt pan, does that even matter? Has anyone made the bundt cakes in a normal cake pan? If so, what size does the pan need to be then?

My birthday is coming up in a few days and I'm thinking that's the cake I want to make...let me know what your experience has been!

If anyone else ever needs to know, the recipe as-is was plenty to fill a 9x13 dish. Baked for 30 minutes and it looks perfect.

That cake is so tasty! When I made it I really enjoyed it but had a lot of trouble getting it out of my bundt pan, though I blame that on the fact that it is silicone. If I make it again I will absolutely do so in a 9x13.

Tried the Pasta della California. Didn't like it. It's edible, but not worth making again. And now I want to go home and bake a coconut-lemon cake.

I make the hot and sour soup for the first time yesterday (I've had the book since maybe 2007?). So good. I'm surprised I never noticed it before. Now I'm curious what else I'm missing out on.

Anyone know if the lemon bars can be made in mini tart pans?

Hmmm, I don't remember that recipe either! I tend to skip over soup recipes to get to more exciting (fatty) things like PIE and LASAGNA and, of course, CAKE!! I must investigate the soup situation now.

I don't see why they couldn't. The only part that needs baking is the crust, so you could just adapt the crust baking time accordingly to make sure the smaller crusts don't burn. The top/lemon curd portion just has to set and all the cooking of it takes place on the stovetop. I wonder how easiliy they will come out of your pan though. Maybe use liners or grease the smaller tins pretty thoroughly?

This is without a doubt the best vegan cookbook that I own! I've had it for about a year and a half now and everything I've cooked out of it is amazing! I've probably made at least 20 different recipes using this book and I don't have a complaint about anything. I've made the spinach and eggplant muffaletta at least half a dozen times and it's probably my favorite recipe in the book; it does make a bit of a mess, but the end result is totally worth it! I tried the Baja Tempeh Tacos for the first time a few weeks ago and this is probably my 2nd favorite recipe in the book. Speaking of which, I've got some tempeh marinating in a chili-beer mix as I type! Rounding out my top 3 'nomicon favorite are the chickpea cutlets! Wow! I can't imagine my life without this book!

Oh, great, thanks! My tins actually have a removable bottom - they're from a little French bakery from my hometown that closed shop a while back. I will still grease them though!

Between buying this for other people and replacing my copy(ies?) that I've loaned out, I'm pretty sure I've bought this thing 4-5 times now.

The soups in V'Con are rad. I love them! Especially the spicy eggplant and peanut stew. I think I've made all of them and the only one I didn't care for seems to be a fan favourite (tomato rice) so what do I know.

Now I can't wait for corn season to make the chowder.

Last night I made the Chile Cornmeal-Crusted Tofu, Mexican Millet, and Skillet Corn Bread. All of them came together really quickly, and I LOVE the corn bread. It's exactly what I've been looking for: soft crumb, slightly sweet, a little buttery. I'm still very new to using a cast iron skillet, but it worked out beautifully when I halved the recipe to fit my wee little 8" skillet.

The Mexican Millet seemed a little bland straight out of the pan, but today, cold, it's pretty good. I imagine this with some beans will make an excellent burrito.... If I can stay away from Chipotle long enough.

The Cornmeal Crusted Tofu was nice and crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside, with great flavor. I had never dredged before, but the instructions were clear. Either that, or I've watch too many episodes of Diners Drive-ins and Dives. The only down side is that I had a lot of the dredge left over after battering my tofu. I didn't know what to do with the cornmeal mix and the soymilk mix, so I just tossed them. It felt really wasteful. There was enough for at least two more blocks of tofu.

Overall I'm very happy with the recipes. Trying to decide what to whip up next.
