This is the BEST cookbook ever. I discovered this book as I was making the transition to veganism and I have made almost all the recipes in the book already. They are so delicious and easy and my whole family loves them. I am so thankful for this book!<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/book2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":book:">

I like it, too. I use it almost every week. In fact, the chili and the pasta sauce have become staples in my house. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

I like Vegan Vittles alot. The red pepper and basil potato salad is one of my favorite recipes. Table for Two is another really good one by Joanne. It's the cookbook I use the most.

There's a recipe for Seitan Stroganoff that basically has<br><br>
-6oz Seitan<br><br>
-1 can veggie brother<br><br>
-Soy Sauce<br><br>
-tahini<br><br>
-garlic<br><br>
-mushrooms<br><br>
-cornstarch<br><br><br><br>
You make the sauce with the soy sauce,tahini,cornstarch and garlic. Then you fry the onions and mushrooms, then mix together with the seitan. Serve over noodles or rice. It's sooo delicious, my family loves it.<br><br><br><br>
This book is great too, has lots of good info for vegans.

Both Vegan Vittles and Vegan Planet are GREAT cookbooks! (I love the lemon date squares from vegan vittles btw-so yummy!) I think I'd have a hard time choosing between the two personally!

I didn't see any reviews saying that but I just skimmed over them. Do you mean that a lot of the recipies are just vegan versions of meat favorites? I guess some of them definitely are, like seitan stroganoff. But, I like the recipies because they're not exotic or overly involved, and they don't take a million weird ingredients that I have to buy at a speciality store. That's the kind of stuff I'm into, but I suppose others might not be.

The recipe for Crock Cheeze is worth the price of that book alone. Use less tahini than it calls for, though.<br><br><br><br>
And the Southern-Fried Tofu is AMAZING. I guess it's technically a "meat-replacement", but I never ate chicken and I love this recipe on its own terms.
