Jeanie's Falafel

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Delicious! Definitely way too dry - I had to add 2 eggs' worth in egg replacers' plus some water. But still so good! Next time I'll start with 1/2 cup of bread crumbs and add as needed. I didn't deep fry, just pan-fried in a skillet, threw them on top of lettuce and tomato and ate with creamy Italian dressing. Such an easy, inexpensive dinner.

Kristen's Awesome Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
These cookies are amazing!! I used 1/2 cup shortening + 1/4 cup butter, and 1/2 tbsp cinnamon, and they turned out wonderfully. Like others, mine were a little flat, but they're so delicious I don't care. And they smell fantastic! A truly perfect cookie.

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
I've never heard of pancit, but decided to make this when I had a leftover head of cabbage to use. It's delicious, and next time I'll definitely add a bit water as some reviewers suggested. Beware - this makes A LOT. I would definitely halve it next time so I don't have five days of leftovers! The only substitution I made was using tofu instead of chicken - a great vegan meal.

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
This is a good recipe, but the sauce came out a little thick and gummy for my liking. Next time, I'll keep the sauce separate and pour it over the tofu and veggies right before serving, or just heat it in the skillet for a minute. I kept the veggies separately steamed, so the sauce is way too much for just tofu. But otherwise, very tasty!

Linzer Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I agree with the other commenters - a delicious cookie with a required effort that's justifiable only once or twice a year. The cookies tasted fantastic, and I had no trouble rolling out the dough (between two pieces of waxed paper after being chilled overnight). But they crumbled apart coming off the baking sheet. I heated preserves and that helped glue them back together - and the dusted sugar covered up the mistakes. But I gave up halfway through and made the thumbprint cookies that other reviewers suggested, and they were just as delicious, so that's what I'll stick with. Also, I used margarine (vegan) so that may have been part of the crumbly problem, but they still tasted lovely!

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
This is a delicious recipe, although I tweaked it a bit to make it more like my favorite restaurant tagine. I left out the chicken and the tomatoes, doubled the chickpeas, replaced the squash with sweet potato and regular potato, and threw in more carrots. Served over whole wheat couscous (cooked in veggie broth), this is a simple, hearty, healthy dish that vegetarians and vegans can love!

Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
A delicious, filling meal! I usually try to stay away from the "open three packages" approach, but this was so easy I couldn't help myself. I added more veggies and used peanut oil; next time I'd definitely save some water to add in. And it was my first successful tofu cooking! A great substitute for chinese/thai take-out, and for only about $2 a serving.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
A very good lentil soup! After eating the canned kind, this tastes 100x better and fresher. Like other reviewers, I used balsamic vinegar, which is unexpected but pleasant. Next time I would definitely cut down to 1 cup lentils - 2 cups soaked up almost all the broth. Delicious!

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
These brownies are AMAZING! I've had a hard time finding good vegan brownies, but these are it. My changes: cut down the sugar to about 1.5 cups; used 3/4 c. coffee + 1/4 c. soymilk instead of 1 c. water; and 1/4 c. oil + 3/4 c. unsweetened applesauce instead of 1 c. oil. I also threw in 1 cup of semisweet chunks and 1/2 c. walnuts. So delicious - gooey and finger-lickable! :)

Spinach and Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
A great recipe, very simple to prepare and healthy. Like other reviewers, I added a can of diced, Italian-seasoned tomatoes. Next time I'll add a can of chickpeas or white beans for protein. Delicious!

Pumpkin Flax Quickbread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
A great pumpkin bread. A bit denser and moister than I usually like my breads, but delicious. I cut the sugar to 3/4 of a cup and used a little less than 1 c. pumpkin (I divided one can between two loaves), but otherwise followed the recipe. So yummy!

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
A delicious soup! The texture is perfect- like a bisque - creamy without any cream. Definitely do not add more apricot - it is exactly the right level of sweetness as is. A great winter soup!

Barbeque Tempeh Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
A great recipe! I use Manwich instead of BBQ sauce to make them more like the sloppy joes my mom used to make. A quick, easy vegan dinner.

Rae's Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
This chili is amazing - tastes exactly like my mom's, even though she made hers with meat. I don't like things spicy, so I left out the hot sauce and it still had a mild kick. Definitely had to use two pots to fit everything! A great winter dinner!

Vegan Lasagna I

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
This was a good, not great recipe, but with some changes I think it could be excellent: use half the spinach, half the noodles (if you have a regular 13x9 pan like me - I don't know how everyone else fit everything in!), and use whatever thick sauce you like, homemade or jarred. My lasagna came out way too watery - which is weird since everyone seems to complain about the dryness, but again, perhaps it's because i could only fit in half the noodles. And it definitely feeds way more than 8 servings so it'd be great for a large dinner party. A good recipe for a beginning vegan chef to play with :)

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
These cookies are great! A bit crumbly and dry, but wonderful and rich! I cut sugar by 1/2c., omitted salt, threw in a few tablespoons of flour and a bit extra vanilla. Perfect! Easily veganized with some egg replacer :)
