Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Arabian lentil and rice soup

    • samanthalenore on January 26, 2018

      Love this soup, have made it dozens of times in the past 5 years. Everyone has loved it. It reminds me a little of what I remember chicken soup with rice tasting like, only lemony. Red lentils dissolve and cook down into thick base.

    • yassoma on August 18, 2016

      One of my all-time favorite soups. So lemony, refreshing, and filling. I even made it for my family (not vegan, not on diets) and they loved it.

  • Sushi roll edamame salad

    • Lglen on September 17, 2018

      I really enjoyed making and eating this !

    • CRCarroll6 on July 08, 2012

      I have to say I love vegan sushi... I also have to say, this salad didn't work for me. I really couldn't finish it. I think I would have to agree with the review that suggests it is due to the flavors of sushi being experienced in one bite rather than in bits and pieces as in the salad. I do recommend exploring other recipes in this book... one bad one in the batch does not a bad batch make.

    • saveur on March 10, 2013

      I ate this as a wrap. I think it was a better way to get all of the flavours in each bite. Nice and tangy with the green onion dressing.

  • Cauliflower mashed potatoes (Caulipots)

    • CRCarroll6 on July 08, 2012

      These are fantastic... especially good with the garbanzo gravy (sounds weird but delicious).

  • Buffalo tempeh

    • CRCarroll6 on July 08, 2012

      This was ridiculously easy... but fantastic on a sandwich with cool coleslaw on top).

    • lajaxon on May 29, 2016

      Good flavor; not as spicy as I expected considering it has half a cup of hot sauce in the marinade; very easy to make.

    • Louzilla on January 27, 2017

      I feared this would be too spicy to handle but it had a great flavor and great texture. I made it with the mac n trees but suspect it would go even better with a less earthy tasting sauce

  • Wild rice salad with oranges and roasted beets

    • saveur on March 10, 2013

      I liked the brightness form the oranges. The dressing was a bit watery but good nonetheless.

    • soleilune on October 12, 2012

      Good, and it's easy to have the ingredients on hand for a quick weeknight dinner.

  • Orange-sesame vinaigrette

    • saveur on March 10, 2013

      A bit watery but nice dressing. Worked well with the orange rice salad.

  • Sautéed kasha and mushrooms with dill

    • saveur on March 10, 2013

      I really liked this. Simple ingredients but they worked really well together. Don't skimp on the pepper. And if you can find it, the boil-in-a-bag kasha is so much better. :)

  • Braised cabbage with seitan

    • saveur on March 10, 2013

      Another great dish. Easy, simple and tasty. I used chorizo (from Viva Vegan) and it gave this a really flavourful meal. Highly recommended.

  • Five-spice delicata squash

    • TrishaCP on November 06, 2014

      An easy and delicious side dish. The squash cooked perfectly.

  • Mashed yuca with cilantro and lime

    • happyeater on May 09, 2015

      The yuca is kind of gummy. Really need to be cooked through otherwise will end up with some hard pieces in center of the cubes. OK but not great dish.

  • Mango BBQ beans

    • happyeater on May 09, 2015

      Very tasty. Don't like kidney beans so swapped out with pinto beans. Also used 1/2 tsp smoked paprika in place of liquid smoke and only 1 1/2 T of agave.

    • lajaxon on May 29, 2016

      Good BBQ flavor; mangos are an interesting addition.

  • Shabby sheik hummus

    • redjanet on October 29, 2018

      I thought I would miss the tahini in this but I didn't at all. I used sweet smoked paprika and cumin and left out the cayenne pepper as I don't like things very spicy and it was delicious.

  • Broiled blackened tofu

    • redjanet on October 29, 2018

      This is a quick and easy recipe I can make for two people. I usually serve it with brown rice and tenderstem broccoli for a healthy mid-week dinner.

    • lajaxon on May 30, 2016

      Makes a tasty, firm baked tofu. Quick and easy. I recommend pressing the tofu.

  • Chickpea piccata

    • jenmacgregor18 on January 23, 2015

      my favorite from the book so far! great on escarole.

    • alisonkc on March 16, 2014

      Delicious! I really enjoyed this, a very bright and flavorful dish for deep winter. I had it over arugula, would also be great with pearl couscous or farro.

  • Curried chickpeas and greens

    • soleilune on February 04, 2012

      Super tasty. Highly recommended.

  • Red Thai tofu

    • alisonkc on May 28, 2015

      With the addition of about a pound of green beans, and served with about 1/2 cup of rice each, I get four good lunch portions which hold up well throughout the week.

  • Smoky tempeh and greens stew

    • Hawley on October 21, 2015

      This was tasty and would make again. Husband not a huge tempeh fan and this didn't convert him, but we both agreed that it would be good without the tempeh. We used swiss chard instead of kale, full sized carrots in coins instead of baby, and chopped fresh tomatoes instead of canned.

  • Spicy blue potato and corn salad

    • lajaxon on May 30, 2016

      This is a great, spicy potato salad recipe; no mayo but great sauce for flavor. Potatoes take longer than 7-10 minutes to cook (more like 30 mins), but that is the only adjustment I'd make to the recipe.

  • Cool slaw

    • lajaxon on May 29, 2016

      Dressing on this coleslaw is a very light vinegary type; not creamy mayo type. Nice and flavorful. Doesn't take much time to make, but be sure to include time for soaking the cashews and marinating the slaw.....

    • WandaA on April 21, 2016

      I used left over red and white cabbage and carrots for this salad and paired it with slow cooked oyster mushrooms in a sauce (with pineapple, spices and tomatoes) on tortillas. Delicious!

  • Baked falafel

    • lajaxon on June 27, 2016

      Not the same flavor or texture of deep fried falafel -- there's a surprise! - but a very simple and seemingly healthful falafel option. Cover them with tahini sauce and salad stuff and you may not notice a difference....

  • Chipotle lentil burgers

    • lajaxon on June 13, 2016

      The instructions say to follow the directions to the letter to ensure the right consistency, so I did. The resulting burgers were a good size, nice and substantial, held together very well and were very flavorful to boot!

  • Fresh corn and scallion corn bread

    • lajaxon on May 30, 2016

      A bit disappointing. Somewhat dry and lacking in flavor. Maybe needs a bit more agave?

  • Black bean, zucchini, and olive tacos

    • chaffinski on August 14, 2018

      Quick and delicious

  • Black-eyed pea and tempeh beanballs

    • chaffinski on August 14, 2018

      Tastes nutrious rather than delicious, although much better in salads etc. when adding to a bigger picture

  • Silky chickpea gravy

    • patioweather on April 09, 2018

      This is easy to make and has become one of my go-to gravy recipes.
