PPK Cookbook Challenge - Week 4 - Vegan with a Vengeance

I am a bit late posting this one. I'm also a bit disappointed I didn't get more than one recipe made. I had high hopes of making the knishes, but alas, it did not happen. It was a crazy busy week. We were out of town for two days, had a couple of fund raisers, went to a Superbowl Party and then there was my Food Network Friday creation. Yep a full week! So my apologies to Isa for neglecting VwaV. This was the first vegan cook book I ever owned, so I do love it, it's just being a little neglected.

I did have time to whip up this tasty and quick gem for lunch one day. The Tofu Dill Sammiches are so easy and awesome. I am a huge dill lover, so this was right up my alley. It also boasts a nice dose of mustard and lemon. A match made in heaven in my opinion. I need to remember this one for those days where there is very little time and a very empty stomach! I have to brag on my lettuce. I picked it fresh from the garden just minutes before this photo was taken.

Vegan with a Vengeance is a wonderful book for cooks of any experience level. I love this book because it uses easy to find and inexpensive ingredients. I still haven't tried the Isa Pizza which I know is going to be awesome. I've already made the ricotta that goes on the pizza and it rocks my world. Make sure to try the Apple Crumb Muffins. They are heavenly!!
