Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spectacular spring salad

    • lorloff on May 02, 2016

      Interesting but not great. The dressing was not very good too lemony. Too many varied ingredients.

  • Black bean and sweet potato tortilla casserole

    • Nancith on March 20, 2018

      A nice combination of flavors in this casserole, a little spicy, hearty & filling. Not being vegan, & not being crazy about cheese analogs, I just used dairy products to make the cheese sauce. This could be a good dish to bring to a potluck.

  • Roasted root vegetable salad

    • Nancith on December 25, 2019

      This was good & went over well at a large family Christmas Eve gathering, but it was lacking something. While writing this, I see that the maple syrup for the roasted veg was forgotten, which may have contributed to the slight blandness, but also the dressing seemed wimpy to me. I like the idea of this salad, but will have to fiddle with it to get more flavor.

  • Vegan cholent

    • Nancith on October 19, 2015

      A healthy, sturdy stew, with a nice combination of flavors. I had to cook it more speedily than suggested (remember to read the directions first!), but it didn't seem to suffer too much from that. Using the Spanish paprika gave it a mellow, smoky flavor. Very filling & great for a chilly night.

  • Lemony asparagus risotto

    • Nancith on April 11, 2017

      The lemon in this risotto really livened up the flavor quotient. There are some problems with the recipe, however. This is oven-baked risotto. I should have known better, but there is no mention of getting the liquid to boiling before putting it & the rice in the oven. After 30 minutes in the oven, it was barely cooking & only had 30 minutes to go, plus more liquid to be added. No way was it going to be finished. I ended up dumping it all in a pot to get it boiling for a few minutes, then finishing in oven. The texture ended up more like porridge unfortunately. I also would suggest using a somewhat larger casserole dish than suggested.

  • Pasta with olive sauce (Pasta puttanesca )

    • Hannaha100 on November 14, 2018

      Cooked a variation on this last week. Stock instead of wine. Popular with all. M didn't like the roasted peppers. Pre-sliced olives would be quicker.

  • Southwestern potato salad with avocado, corn, and peppers

    • lajaxon on July 05, 2015

      Sort of a taco salad version of potato salad; good flavors which will ultimately be influenced by the salsa you use....

  • Baba ghanouj

    • lajaxon on June 27, 2016

      Very easy and flavorful! Be sure to taste to adjust seasonings, but overall, a great baba ghanouj recipe!

  • Tabbouleh

    • lajaxon on June 27, 2016

      A nice tabbouleh salad... Very fresh and tasty!

  • Multi-mushroom barley soup

    • lajaxon on September 14, 2015

      This is such an easy and hearty soup.... delish!

  • Bean-thread noodles and Asian vegetables in creamy cashew sauce

    • robson on April 30, 2017

      I have a filter set for "no nuts," but this recipe contains cashew butter.

  • Hoppin' John (black-eyed peas and rice)

    • toddmain on February 25, 2018

      Good stuff. If you want it spicier, add some minced chipotles in adobo, or some chipotle tabasco. If not, I'd add a teaspoon or two of smoked paprika to get the right smokey flavor.

  • Garlic and rosemary roasted mushrooms

    • toddmain on February 25, 2018

      Sesame oil and rosemary? Does it get any better???

  • Kale and carrot strudel

    • toddmain on February 25, 2018

      We're not big puff pastry fans, so we use a vegan pie crust instead and make turnovers. We also add dried cranberries and chopped broccoli to the filling. Good stuff!

  • Baked Thanksgiving risotto

    • toddmain on February 25, 2018

      This was very good with delicata squash. I think it needs a splash of wine in the dish - you can spare a little from your glass!
