Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Roasted cauliflower salad with lentils

    • SugarFree_Vegan on March 18, 2018

      I loved the combination of cooked and raw veggies, this time I used Romanesco cauliflower which worked fine, plus I'd already got lentils in the fridge so I popped them onto the roasting tray for the last 10 minutes of baking to warm them through and to pick up some of the spices. I also substituted spinach for the rocket/arugula as that is what I had to hand. Totally delicious and very nutritionally sound too!

    • Auxilia on September 08, 2018

      Below average. A little bland, even with all the lemon (and amchur to replace sumac.) Needs some crunch.

  • Warm tofu chop salad with peanut dressing

    • Londonyankee on July 18, 2018

      Prep can be done ahead. Very filling. Sauce is really good, too. Stats per MFP - 520 calories, 24g protein, 36g carbs, 34g fat (5g sat fat)

  • Zucchini pesto pasta salad

    • mharriman on August 16, 2019

      This was the first recipe from this cookbook that I’ve made, and it was okay but not anything I’d rush to repeat again. I liked that she suggested alternatives to the zucchini. I used cauliflower florets, and as roasted, they were the best part of the dish.

  • Thai peanut noodle bowls with spicy lime tofu and crisp vegetables

    • mharriman on November 29, 2020

      Excellent. This recipe requires more prep, steps, pans, bowls,etc., than I prefer, but the outcome is healthy and tastes wonderful. My husband remarked, “This one’s a keeper!” One of the better vegan meals I’ve made in awhile. Will definitely make again when I’m not in a hurry to get dinner on the table.

  • Sweet potato falafel bowls with freekeh pilaf and roasted cauliflower

    • lizbot2000 on August 11, 2018

      A pretty decent meal, overall. The falafel tasted great, but their texture was a little mushy. Next time I think I'll put the oven on higher heat - I like cauliflower a lot more brown, anyway, and I think the falafel would also benefit from something more like 400 or so. We'll see!

  • Baked potatoes with lemon garlic broccolini and white beans

    • MMarlean on July 16, 2020

      Food 52 suggested that pine nuts make a good substitution for hemp seeds, so that's what I used in the topping.
