Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Big quesadillas with black beans, broccoli, and portobello mushrooms

    • SugarFree_Vegan on December 14, 2013

      Pg 146, this is such an easy recipe to make and very tasty. I served mine with the Instant Pepper sauce and Pan Roasted Corn, Red Peppers and Pumpkin Seeds and some chunks of Avocado to make a beautiful, tasty colourful and healthy meal. Yum!

  • Seitan and polenta skillet with fresh greens

    • Nancith on September 13, 2016

      I really liked this dish (hubby not so much as he is not a fan of seitan). I used perhaps 3 times as much soy sauce as called for, & substituted napa cabbage for the bok choy, which for some strange reason was unavailable at my grocery. Wish the polenta had gotten a little browner/ crispier. An intriguing blend of flavors.

  • Valencian rice and red beans

    • Nancith on May 04, 2016

      A basic, hearty meal, but nothing spectacular. The olives would have enhanced it quite a bit, but I left them out for hubby's taste. In future would use canned or garden tomatoes rather than the grocery hothouse variety which were pretty tasteless.

  • Bell pepper and bok choy stir-fry

    • Nancith on April 26, 2015

      Quick & easy, but could use some more seasoning besides soy sauce. Added some scallions which gave it a little more zing.

  • Maple-roasted baby carrots

    • Nancith on October 07, 2018

      A nice way to make those bagged little carrots taste better. Quick & easy.

  • Quinoa with cauliflower, cranberries, and pine nuts

    • Nancith on June 29, 2017

      We really enjoyed this dish. the combination of flavors and textures was simple but pleasing. I used the alternative sesame oil, and unfortunately had no parsley which would have added a nice note. This could be a great dish for a potluck.

    • Nancith on July 02, 2017

      As an addendum to my previous review, this also works well as a cold dish, either on its on, or over a bed of lettuce, with a little extra oil to moisten.

  • Sausage, pepper, broccoli, and zucchini pizza

    • Hannaha100 on June 17, 2017

      This is called "roasted vegetable and vegan sausage pizza" in my copy. A really good vegan pizza option. Roasting the veg separately actually worked well for fussy toddler, kept some on the side. Would make again.

  • Big quesadillas with refried beans, spinach, and avocado

    • Hannaha100 on October 05, 2017

      Didn't measure amounts but followed formula. Even fussyish toddler ate. Quick easy tasty. Refried beans are a lifesaver. Would definitely make again.

  • Tempeh, kale, and sweet potato skillet

    • Scrumptious on April 06, 2017

      I absolutely love this recipe. When I first read it, it sounded too simple and like there wouldn't be enough flavor, but the combination is a winner! The recipe has you cook the three components (sweet potato, kale, tempeh) separately and then doesn't include a final step for combining them. It's pretty basic - just combine them - and this step is also included in the online version of the recipe at the author's website, vegkitchen.com.
