    I have been meaning to try the cholent also, but am hesitant about the tvp. I seem to remember not liking them, but it has been a while since trying them. Isa rarely steers me wrong, though!

    I made this recently and it rocked. It's so pretty, too! I will be making it again soon for my OH to try.
    I made this tonight, it was gorgeous. You're right about it looking pretty, it is so colourful.

    The continuing story of Cholent.....
    I used TVP chunks that are available from a British store (Holland and Barratt). Not sure what other versions would be like, or if you could use seitan (which is very hard to get anywhere near me). Soaked it is water, soy sauce and vegan worcestershire sauce before using it, so it had a bit more taste. Then just followed the recipe, ending with tasty goodness.

    ^ maybe its like how its hard to get Wheat Glueten for some people in England, its just way more difficult to find TVP...you know i did see some in the bulk section of the health food store i can't go to anymore...but thats a lost cause anyway. maybe once our whole foods opens out here...

    I made the Mexican Millet for dinners this week. I turned it into a main dish by adding pinto beans (I wanted black, but this is all I had) and frozen corn. It was my first time using millet and I don't think I cooked it long enough, but besides that, it was very good.

    re cholent: vcon does specify chunks, not granules. I have never seen chunks. still haven't made it as can't bring myself to drop $5 on seitan at the moment.

    I've seen chunks in Asian stores all over Europe, so you might have a look in one of those. Indian stores have a wide selection of TVP as well.

    I made dinner for my and my bf's parents last night and friggin forgot to take pics of the food.

    Made vcon's corn and edamame sesame salad served in radicchio cups, caesar salad and the grilled yuca tortillas with tropical avocado salsa fresca (also store bought guac, sun chips, watermelon and cantelope). I can't find yuca though so I made the sweet potato and black bean variation and added some regular baked potatoes in place of the yuka. They were bomb. Everything was delicious.

    Hmm... I got a Vegan Go-Go cookbook as a gift for interning with a vegan outreach organization. I like it. It's small (big books are annoyingly hard to transport in any way), I can take it to the store with me, and some of the recipes are beautifully simple. Also, Sarah Kramer is silly. Some kinds of playfulness (attitude) like in Skinny Bitch annoy me... you can only take that a little ways before it because distasteful and offensive. But Kramer's book is just cute. She has silly pictures of herself looking like an old, upper class mixture between the '50s and 21st century with her many tattoos.

    Oh, wait... I just remembered this thread was strictly about Veganomicon. Oops. lol I saw a copy of that but didn't get a chance to look through it. Oh, yeah... I did get to look through another book by the same author... it just took too many ingredients for all of them. And weird ingredients. Creative is good, but useful is better.

    My housemate and I have been making good use of random recipes found in veg starter guides and COK's Easy Vegan Recipes booklet. Who needs fancy books?!

    I made the chickpea cutlets today - v yummy but a bit salty - presumably because it has 2 tablespoons of soy sauce in the recipe. Husband likes them too and is threatening to make lots in the week - I hope he doesnt as he never weighs or measures stuff and the flavour of his cooking is therefore a bit hit or miss.

    Here's a batch of Veganomicon's sugar cookies with their royal icing. Everyone liked them a lot, but they're just as good (if not better) without the icing.

    I do not recommend doing what I've done below unless, like me, you have the sweet tooth of a four year old.

    timberly all of those dishes look fantastic and so professional! Your pics should be in the cookbook.

    I've been making quite a few recipes from there, but I don't have pics. One of our favorites was the snobby joes served over ww buns w/ the prospect park potato salad.

    You reminded me that I want to make that pineapple quinoa stir-fry. I keep hearing good things about it.

    did you love the salsa fresca. mmmm... esp on those tortillas. I need to make those again.

    Did you wear your apron while cooking these? Or more importantly, did your bf wear the apron? haha.

    How was the piccata? I've really been wanting to try that.

    ooh i'll have to make some snobby joes!

    that avocado salsa was absolutely spectacular and so amazing for the 4 or 5 simple ingredients. i've made the tortillas twice but the second time i didnt have the ingredients for the salsa. i will not make that mistake again haha.

    as for the quinoa, definitely try it. its so unique and not hard to make at all just taskes awhile to chop everything up. i bought a whole pineapple and it turned out that once cut up i had the perfect amount of pineapple chunks and juice for the recipe. she suggests to make the quinoa a day in advance so what i did was put that on the stove to cook for 20 mins and chop up most of the veggies and put them in the refrigerator. the next night it only took less five mins to cut up the ginger, basil, and mint and youre ready to start cooking.

    the bf is no chef and it took him like 2.5 hours to make the piccata and mashed potatoes but it came out REALLY good. i heated up the leftovers for lunch today and it was a pain in the ass. i dont have a microwave so it took forever to heat up the mashed potatoes, sauce, seitan and green beans all seperately

    You should definitely try the pineapple quinoa stir fry. It's really not hard to make and now I keep little cans of pineapple juice on hand so if I decide the night before that I want it the next day, I can at least get that part out of the way w/o running to the store.

    I also have made it several times but have never bothered buying the fresh mint...the fresh basil is really good in the dish though.
