Hi Jeffre8-

The homemade seitan sounds like a great plan. You'll have to let us know how it turns out and if it's good where you found the recipe. My only disappointment with the store bought seitan was the amount of sodium! It was very high. Good luck making it and keep us posted!

Honeybeegirl77-
Thank you for sharing! This is one of the recipes that I havent tried yet because my local grocery store does not sell seitan. However, I have found recipes to make seitan at home and have already bought all the ingredient.. just need to whip it all together! I look forward to trying this recipe. :)

Wow! I made the Pecan Crusted Seitan over the weekend and felt like I was being naughty. I served it with the Rustic Pasta and felt like I was pigging out on Italian food. The seitan made me feel like I was eating chicken, but it tasted soo much better! Yum!! I think next time I'm going to leave some of the rosemary out- it was really strong- and use a cooking spray instead of the oil because some of the first pieces I put in the pan were a little oily. It was still wonderful though!!

Oh I never commented on the barley casserole. It was really good, although a little dry. I'm going to have to figure out a way to infuse a little more moisture in it next time. But it was tasty!

Thanks for the help. I was really shocked that my huge local supermarket that seems to carry everything didn't have them. I'll have to take a trip out to the health food store. It's an awesome place, but a good 45 minute drive for me.

I had to buy my umeboshi produce online from Eden organics! Although we do not have umeboshi produce in my area, I have found lotus root.. and the lotus root recipe rocks!

Your best bet for shoyu and umeboshi would be a health food store, unless your supermarket happens to have a decent international section. I'd love to find lotus.... and burdock root. Can't find either of those where I am.

The sweet-potato lentil stew sounds good but I haven't made it yet. I did the rustic pasta and I think I enjoyed it (it was a while ago). The pecan crusted seitan is delicious.... I think it came from the Candle Cafe cookbook, and I ate there once and had it. SO YUM.

Hi! I'm new here and I thought I'd just jump right in! Hope that's okay. emoticon

I've made the Sweet-Potato Lentil stew many times and it's my new favorite recipe! My whole (Non-vegan) family just loves it. I also made her cornbread (muffins) and my meat and dairy loving boyfriend just flipped for them. The cornbread goes great with the stew, BTW!

I've also made the Eggplant Chana Masala and it is excellent. My eggplant hating boyfriend picks around the eggplant, but will gobble up the rest without complaint.

The chocolate peanut butter cups are far too good! I can't make them because I over eat them and at about 250 calories and 16g of fat per piece they are dangerous!

The Toasted Nori Burritos are a splendid idea and I've made my own yummy variations.

This week I'm going to try the rustic pasta and the pecan-crusted seitan. Thanks for the recommendations!

I still have yet to find shoyu, daikon, or umeboshi plums in my grocery store, but when I do I will be trying many more recipes! Any tips on where to find them?

Hi, new here.
I just made the Summer Succotash and Hot Rice with Cold Lemon and Basil last night. DELICIOUS! It was great to eat such tasty food that felt "clean" and healthy. I've made the peanut butter cups - but they're not something I'll make often because they might be a trigger food for me (though they last really well if you freeze them!). I tried the millet porridge in the Superhero section... and I wanted to like it... but OMG it was just not for me. I usually like trying new foods but this wasn't something i could see myself eating on a regular basis.

I'm making the quinoa with pine nuts and basil and the fruity lentils for my lunches this week.

Adzuki Beans with Kabocha Squash-- Cannot get enough of this dish! I can't wait to make it again. I substituted kabocha for butternut and used wakame seaweed in place of kombu and it was excellent!

Peanut Butter Cups--Great and addictive! Gotta stop making them. I used turbinado sugar, which I know Alicia warns against in the book but I haven't gotten around to buying brown rice syrup or agave or maple. I'm not going to make them anymore until I have those ingredients.

Moroccan Cous Cous -- Yumm-o!

I used diakon for the first time in a quinoa dish that I made. Pretty good! I've also been drinking the kukicha tea and eating the umeboshi plums on a regular basis. This is a great book with so many great and exciting recipes!

So far I have made the peanut butter cups and the brown rice crispy treats. DELICIOUS!! They were even a huge hit to some family members and friends.

Tonight I'm making the Barley Casserole. I cooked the barley last night so it wouldn't take so long to make.

I'll post the results either tonight or tomorrow.

Rustic Pasta: Very good. If you haven't tried it yet, don't be intimidated by volume of onions and cabbage, it shrinks down a great deal as you cook it!

Cheesy, Oozy Guacamole Dip: Big hit at our Super Bowl party - no one except me was vegan, and everyone loved it. I really enjoy this dip as a treat.

Artichoke, Mushroom and Leek Crostini w/ Pesto: MY FAVORITE RECIPE FROM THE BOOK. OUTSTANDING APPETIZER. To cut down on prep time, buy pre-made crostini and pesto at the grocery store. Make sure they are vegan, though!

Crispy Tofu Slices: I love this but I wish a.) baked tofu wasn't so expensive and easier to make at home and b.) that the dipping sauce was a little thicker in consistency.

Mochi Waffles with Maple-Walnut Glaze: Consistency of waffles takes some getting used to. Love the glaze.

Seitan Piccata: One of my omnivore boyfriend's favorite meals. Really does taste like Chicken Piccata, IMO. I omit the capers because I don't care for them; it still comes out ok.

Pecan Crusted Seitan: One of my favorite recipes from the book. Tastes great with Rustic Pasta.

Braised Daikon: Very awesome. Takes awhile longer than the recipe says for the liquid to reduce down. Be sure not to try to rush the cooking process because it burns really fast!

Peanut Butter Cups: Heaven! So tasty.

Pumpkin Bread: Dense as can be, but really good and filling. A good breakfast item. I make mine with agave syrup instead of maple sugar, because I can't find it anywhere around where I live.

Oatmeal, Walnut, and Dried Plum Cookies: These are so "buttery" tasting and delicious. I just use dried mixed fruit (papaya, pineapple, mango, etc) in place of the dried plums, though.

Polenta Casserole: I thought this was awful. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, as the top crusted up while the inside didn't seem to cook. I was very unsatisfied with this dish.

Caesar Salad:
This was absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend!! I added some pan fried tempeh with some shoyu drizzled over it and made my own crutons for Ezekiel 4:9 sesame bread.

Rustic Pasta:
WOW - my entire family raved about this last night. It was really good. Trust the recipe (calls for 2 onions, 4 oz pasta and only 5-6 tbsp marinara sauce). Even thought it seemed like too much onion and not enough marinara and pasta it was perfect.

Whole wheat buscuits:
These were dry and dense, but with only using whole wheat flower this is expected. I'm actually working on perfecting a whole wheat buscuit recipe after seeing how quickly I could whip together a batch of buscuits. I may try using a little unbleached flour, but usuing mostly whole wheat. I'm not giving up on buscuits yet!! I still ate 4, and with a little earth balance and maybe some jelly these would be pretty decent.
