Vegan Planet Cookbook--What Are Your Faves?

I recently got a copy of Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson.  I just tried my first recipe today, Mediterranean Lima Bean Salad with Grape Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, and Marinated Tofu (p. 116).  I thought it was really tasty and simple and makes a nice, different summertime salad.  I've already marked a bunch of recipes that I'd like to try including Lasagna Primavera, Ultimate Shepherd's Pie, African Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew, Vermicelli, Chickpeas, and Vegetables with Creamy Curry Sauce, and Tahini Rotini with Broccoli and Lemon.  Has anyone tried any of these recipes?  Do you have any other favorites from this cookbook that I should be sure and try?  Thanks so much for your input!

AC--she has two pages of marinade suggestions for baked tofu.  One of them is called thai marinade.  I'll see if I can find the page.

Oh, it's up to you. I just didn't want to leave your review out of the compilation.  How about I just put it under the baked tofu?

I made the Grilled Vegetable Wraps last night.  They're simple and tasty.  These make an easy, quick meal.

I made the Pan Bagna late last night, let it sit in the refrigerator overnight, and am eating this right now for lunch--it's super delicious!  I love that this recipe is so easy to throw together; nearly everything is jarred/canned, making this very quick to make.  I used leftover pesto that I had from the VWAV recipe.  Everything else is easy peasy--canned cannelini beans, jarred roasted red peppers, jarred green olives, jarred marinated artichoke hearts, fresh sliced tomato, a bit of salt and pepper, and some balsamic dressing (I used bottled TJs Tuscan Italian Dressing with Balsamic Vinegar).  I did have to use a round loaf of sourdough, as I couldn't find a round loaf of just plain Italian bread.  I look forward to making this again in the future.  I think this would make a perfect summer meal.  Oh, and for anyone who doesn't have the book, here is the recipe as posted online by the author:  http://www.globalvegankitchen.com/SampleRecipes_VP.html  (scroll down past the first recipe)

I make that exact same thing! I didn't know it was in a cookbook.  :o Well not exact...I add broccoli rabe and serve it over cold pasta as a summer salad.  Seriously delicious.

Would level cooking would you guys consider this book? Easy to fix? Intermediate? I find myself to be a pretty good cook, but I also don't always have a lot of time after work and would like fairly simple, fresh recipes. I've read a lot of good reviews of this book and it sounds like an ideal one to include in my collection..

I'd say this cookbook ranges from easy to fix to intermediate.  There are many really simple dishes and nothing too advanced, in my opinion.  This is a huge cookbook with tons of recipes and would likely be a nice addition to your collection.  You can find quite a few of Robin Robertson's recipes online if you search.  Also, many bookstores seem to stock this book, in case you want to take a look in person before purchasing.

Herb and Scallion Dressing

WOW this was creamy and fresh tasting and very 'green' tasting. I love it, I used it on salads and as a dip for cucumbers and carrots (with dill this is especially good). It's also a cinch to make and it doesn't make a ton, which I like because it would end up going bad before I could use it all. I think the only thing I changed was instead of just stirring in the herbs I whipped them around in a blender.
