    The coffee almond butter cookies are the best but I’ve lost the recipe and lent out the book to unknown persons! Anyone have the recipe for me?

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Tofu miso stew

    • ellabee on November 20, 2013

      p.150, Oriental stock sub-recipe p.67. Despite its name, this recipe doesn't contain tofu, but I added small cubes of extra-firm tofu that marinated in some of the red miso-broth mixture (late in the stewing process, just to heat through). Also subbed bok choy for lack of some of the listed veg, and the green helped perk up the look of the stew. Halved, roughly, for the two of us, and had a bit left over.

  • Polenta eggplant gratin

    • ellabee on August 07, 2014

      p. 177. Used already-cooked pieces of firm polenta from freezer (thawed in fridge). Thought this might be stodgy and forgettable, but s.o. was enthusiastic.

  • Kale and white bean soup

    • on January 06, 2022

      A very good soup . Since our garden kale has been mellowed by 4-5 freezes , I think a touch of lemon juice will bring it up to a delicious soup .

  • Coffee almond butter cookies

    • eliza on September 02, 2022

      Very good cookies. These were easy to make and my group all liked them. Dough can be frozen to be baked as needed. I used espresso powder for the instant coffee.

  • Apple walnut sour cream bread

    • carlenedrake on October 28, 2020

      Excellent! Served it warm, after cooling just 10 minutes. Moist, and tender! Would be great with coffee!

  • Sweet and sour cabbage soup

    • ricki on August 26, 2017

      I love this soup!

    • sayeater on March 06, 2022

      Just what I was looking for today. A bowl of homey goodness with the right balance of salt/sweet/sour and bright fresh dill on the finish. You'll need to gradually adjust those three elements until it's right for your taste buds. The sour cream on top is optional but I wholly recommend for the extra tang.

  • Tassajara granola

    • senzler on May 01, 2022

      This is my go too granola. I have made it for years. I do only use 1/2 cup of oil. I use the honey but no cinnamon or cloves. I also add 1 to 1 and 1/2 cup coconut and 1 to 1 and 1/2 cup of what ever dead’s I have around (sesame, flax, pumpkin for 1 cup of the sunflower seeds). Makes quite a bit. Easy.
