    Default Vegan Planet

    My copy of this just arrived. Does anyone have any recommendations about what to try from it? It's huge!

    I know this is a little late and I'm sure you've discovered all kinds of yummy recipes in your cookbook but I thought I'd let you know about the 3 yummy ones I just tried.
    Last night I made the summertime tomato sauce, so so so so so so good! I made the irish soda bread a couple nights ago. I've never had soda bread before so I'm not sure how it compared to the non-vegan kind but my non-vegan soda bread loving friend liked it. The recipe says it's best on the day it's prepared but I had a few slices left a couple days later and it was fine. I made the chocolate chip cookies and they were loved by all. Even my little neighbor girl who turns her nose up and everything I make and pronounces it "weird". ( as a side note, I tricked her into eating tofu sticks by calling them cheese sticks and she loved them. She even wants me to make them again)

    I finally bought it, too... wanted to buy it when I was in London last time but had to remember the weight of my suitcase =)

    Anyway, I've flicked through it and a lot of recipes sound great... but it's just... soooo much info and so many recipes, quite a vegan bible!!!

    I rated this book "good," though I personally think it has it's good and bad points. Many of the recipes are fairly "drab," so I found myself adding spices or ingredients to make them closer to "fab." Some of the desserts are just downright boring, but now I'm comparing them to the likes of vegan cupcakes Because the book is so huge, I have found some recipes I like, but like I said, most I still had to make my "own" in one way or another to like them. I doubt I'll use the dessert section again (esp. since I have the vegan cupcakes cookbook, La Dolce Vegan with quite a few yummy cookies, etc), as I have yet to find one that was worth the effort.

    I love Vegan Planet, I really love to make homemade soups. My favorite soups from this book are:

    Tusan White Bean Soup
    Roasted Corn Chower
    Sherry Laced Garlic Soup

    The Balsamic Viniagrette with Sun Dried Tomatoes is excellent over mixed greens with some diced tomato and toasted pine nuts.

    I'm resurrecting this thread because I recently borrowed Vegan Planet from my local library and so far I love it!

    I made the African Sweet Potato Stew which is fantastic and I am looking forward to trying the Faux Tuna Sandwich Filling as well as the Ginger-scented Vegetable pot stickers

    There are two different ones? I'll have to have another look in the book! I think I'd prefer chickenless or eggless salad as I don't want it to taste fishy (I would leave out the kelp in the tunaless salad)

    The somosas are pretty easy but they do take some time. I would also increase the amount of dough by half to make them easier to stuff.

    there's tunaless (made with chick peas), eggless (made with tofu) and my favorite is the chickenless (made with tempeh).
