Recipe Round Up: Vegan Planet

More photos to upload and share! Today I thought I might do a bit of a Vegan Planet (by Robin Robertson) round up. But I have so many photos, this is not yet all of them! So today's pictures all have an Asian-type theme.

Hoisin-Braised Baby Bok Choy with Shiitake Mushrooms. I think served here with Asian Marinated Tofu (from Vcon/VWAV) and jasmine rice. Tasty! It is rather sweet, so a nice savoury marinated tofu is a fantastic side.

Pad Thai. Very yummy and satisfying. Mmmmm. I added some chopped green beans as suggested for extra green stuff and adding a fresh lime or lemon wedge to squeeze all over is great.

Teriyake-Glazed Tempeh. Served with some Vcon Easy Stir-Fried Greens and rice. I love, love, love, love this! It is so juicy and tasty. It would also be fabulous as a sandwich filling, a bit of a variation on tempeh bacon. The Easy Stir-Fried Greens were a bit spicy but nice and tasty.

Udon-Shiitake Stir-Fry with Sake and Ginger. Served with edamame in the pod and Asian BBQ marinated tofu (also from Vegan Planet). This is another love, love, love, love it recipe! It is just absolutely divine. Make it now!

Mahogany Eggplant. Served with Asian Marinated BBQ and The Complete Vegan Cookbook's Wasabi Mashed Potato. OK, so apparently I am saying the word LOVE a lot in this post. But again, I love this! It makes a small amount, enough for four side servings. The flavour is insanely tasty!

Sesame Soba Noodles. With Marinated Tofu #2 from Vegan Vittles. This was very nice. Definite like, though not quite up with the LOVE of the last three! I took out the icky capsicum and used an extra carrot and some extra peas to make up for it. I think it would be nice with zucchini as well.

Indonesia-Style Rice with Tempeh. This is the Vegan Planet version of nasi goreng, and is very nice. The red stuff you see on it is Asian chili sauce. My mother can't at chili at the moment, so I omitted it from the recipe and my father and I added chili sauce on ours.


  1. Uoww! you made a lot of asian food! the udon looks really good! I never ever eat tofu, but yours looks delicious!

  2. I've been thinking about buying Vegan Planet, so I am very interested in your review/opinion of it! There is certainly a lot of love for it coming through around here...
