MoFo Giveaway—PPK Gift Packages


Jake, “Well, it’s gotta be Isa’s Seitan & Broccoli With Pantry BBQ Sauce – that combo has scored me some major, major points. If I get lucky and win, I’ll tell ya what they were.” So tell us!
Crystal, “Maple PECAN PIE for this vegan Canadian Mofo. I live in maple syrup Capital and I would eat this any time of day. Possibly for my birthday which is just around the corner. VEGAN MOFO and Isa forever!”

Check your emails soon!

Isa Chandra Moskowitz has pretty hair and she likes cats. She’s also part of the original enigmatic creative force behind this whole Vegan MoFo entity, and though she couldn’t do it without all of you—bloggers, readers and Post Punk Kitchen disciples—there’s a reason people such as myself identify as PPKult members (okay, not really—but some of my best friends with pretty hair hang out on the PPK forums and duh, Isa and Terry books are the best vegan cookbooks).

Today’s giveaway is courtesy of the mighty PPK, and it’s a damn good one. Two winners will receive a package of goodies that includes the brand spanking new Vegan Pie In The Sky by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero (lovingly dubbed VPITS), a PPK t-shirt, and a PPK apron to shield you from errant hunks of icing sugar, frozen berries, flour, and other inevitable suspects as you embark on some serious pie-baking.

I recipe-tested for Vegan Pie In The Sky, so I ate a lot of pie. I have always fancied myself more of a cook than a baker, but after making so many insanely delicious pies, and really never having many problems doing so (icing cupcakes is a different beast), I’m proud to say that VPITS has armed me with tons of circular desserts to impress everyone from my 94-year-old British grandma to my beer-guzzling hockey game-watching buddies to my mum’s home bible study group. Think Boston Creme Cake Pie, Pear Frangipane Tart, and my personal favourite: Pucker Up Raspberry Pie. There’s also a crazy Curried Macaroon Pie that is up there in my favourites. Pie is just special, you know? As the PPK write-up says, “Can you picture Agent Cooper from Twin Peaks waxing over a piece of angle food cake? No way. His black coffee must come saddled with a slice of honest cherry pie.”

With this PPK apron, you weirdos can pretend to be Isa’s boyfriend!

Want PPKers to recognize you on the streets? Of course you do. You’ll, of course, be able to choose your preferred size.

I twisted Isa’s arm (not really! She loves everyone!) to insist that this giveaway be open to both the US and Canada, so Canadians—you owe me one, and make me proud. To be eligible to win one of the two packages, all you have to do is comment on this post telling me your favourite recipe from the PPK blog. Even though I’m un-eligible to win, I’ll start. I am nuts for Isa’s White Wine Garlic Chanterelles. I will pick a winner at random around 9 AM PST tomorrow. Good luck!

    I can’t stop thinking about the pb caramel apples that were just posted!

  2. I haven’t tried this yet, but I really want to try the Shiitake Banh Mi Salad ( I’m working to up my intake of salad and this looks like a delicious way to enjoy those salad veggies!

    I want to win – I never seem to win anything! :)

  3. Michelle Hathorus says:

    Chana Masala. Yes please!

  4. laura says:

    oooh! what a delicious prize! I’m representin’ the canadians here and my favourite ppk recipe (so far…) is the caribbean curry with black eyed peas and plantains! beans, plantains, curry, the warm sunshiney flavours of the caribbean – it’s absolute perfection!!

  5. Susan says:

    I love the Best Pumpkin Muffins! And so does everyone I make them for! I make them so often I don’t even look at the recipe anymore. That’s true love.

  6. bitt says:

    the mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles! I also just made the pumpkin muffins which were dang good too.

  7. Dawn says:

    I could eat eggplant bacon every day. But the one I’m most excited to try next is the scalloped potatoes (of course, WITH eggplant bacon)

  8. Kathryn says:

    I just made the chickpea picatta the other night for dinner, and I think it’s my new favorite! Perfect yummy fall food for drizzly Washington weather. And so cheap and easy for a full-time and working college student! :)

  9. Veronica says:

    I loooove Isa and Terry!!! My very favorite recipe from the PPK blog is the avocado potato salad. That was the very first recipe I tried from the blog, and one that has become a classic in my kitchen.

  10. Meg - The Snarky Chickpea says:

    We absolutely LOVE Isa’s Tempeh Helper!! Mucho yummo!

  11. Erica says:

    I make this Red Curry Soup pretty frequently, and it’s become one of my all time faves – simple, comforting, and nourishing.

  12. Stephen says:

    Spaghetti No’s with Lentil Meatballs, the sauce is sooooo good and the lentil meatballs got it going on as well. As a kid I used to eat Spaghetti O’s nearly everyday. This recipe those is like 1000x better and actually uses real food. Nom nom nom.

  13. Jeanette Eckert says:

    The Chili Pumpkin Cranberry Risotto is perfect for this time of year and has such a yummy and interesting combination of ingredients. And it’s a great way to use up all this squash. Where does it all keep coming from?!

  14. Farrah P says:

    Gingerbread Flax Muffins!!!

  15. My favorite is the Doublebatch Chickpea Cutlets.
    I made it for Thanksgiving last year and plan to do so again this year! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  16. Christine says:

    The Chickpea Cutlets are genius, and just the best thing ever. Yum! I think I’ll make a batch today.

  17. Angie says:

    Hands down. Scalloped potatos with eggplant bacon. You didn’t ask us to say why we like it but I’m going to. Until I was 23 the only dish I knew how to cook was scalloped potatoes. I was really good at impressing a new boyfriend… once. I slowly learned to cook more and filled my arsenal but the root of all meals were those potatoes. In my adventures in veganism I had all but forgotten about this dish. It was lost in quinoa and brussel sprouts and thought of as a marker in history with no room in the present. But PPK revived it. Once again I can sit
    in front of reruns with a fork held aloft the casserole dish and refuse to share. Thank you.

  18. Katie Gibbs says:

    Yay! Thanks for making this open to Canadians as well! I want Pie In the Sky SO bad! Lately I’ve been obsessed with the pumpkin french toast and the smokey maple sausages. Both of them are delicious!

  19. Erin says:

    Easy, the Pumpkin Pie Brownie!

  20. Amanda says:

    Scalloped Potatoes And Eggplant Bacon!!! I have appetite for reduction and the eggplant bacon is my favorite. Pair that with potatoes and you get heaven! Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  21. Dawn says:

    I couldn’t figure out what to do with quinoa, and then this recipe appeared and since then me and quinoa has been dating since!

  22. caroline frasier says:

    Every recipe Isa posts becomes my new favorite thing ever, but the Blackened Scrambled Tofu with Garlicky Grits has been in heavy rotation for the past month and a half… AND my omnivorous scrambled-‘fu-hating boyfriend not only loved it, but actually put in a request for it!

  23. Nicky A says:

    The Spicy Tempeh roll solved my sushi cravings forever. Long live the PPK!

  24. Denise says:

    I love,love,love the Chana Masala!!! :)

  25. Ashley N says:

    Hmmm this is probably the hardest decision of my life! Obviously they are all my favorites, but the one that I make the most is probably the Fronch Toast

    I`m crazy for breakfast foods, and french toast was always one of my faves and this recipe is sooo delicious and can even fool carnivores 😉 I love to drizzle my homemade agave “butter” syrup all over it and top with some berries or powdered sugar or both!

  26. Yvonne says:

    Ooooh! Scalloped Potatoes and Eggplant Bacon (can’t leave out the Eggplant Bacon). Trying to find good vegan options to replace old loves like scalloped potatoes has been hard. This recipe has been an uncomplicated life saver! I get tired of having to use overly processed ingredients like fake cheese to replicate the ooey gooey goodness of the creamy component of these potatoes so we love, love, love, that it uses cashew cream. It makes us all feel like we’re eating something wholesome (and truly plant based) while still indulgent. They are a must for Thanksgiving, too!

  27. Michelle says:

    Maybe it’s the season or whatever talking to me, but Pumpkin Pie Brownies for the win!

  28. Laura says:

    Spaghetti No’s!

  29. Celeste Hill says:

    Oh, I think that would have to be the pecan pie. This former Southern gal just can’t get enough pecan pie!

  30. corrina says:

    i send the link for the mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles to everyone and their mother. one of my absolute favorite cookie recipes ever.

  31. my favorite is the Portland Porch lettuce wraps, and not just because I live in Portland 😉

  32. Jennifer Licata says:

    PPK is one of my go-to sites when I’m looking for recipes, so it’s hard to choose just one. However, the magic of Eggplant Bacon has changed my life. My formerly eggplant-hating 7 year old informed me after I made it that it was one of her most favorite foods ever. She even requested that I pack some in her lunch the next day! Who knew such an easy recipe could conquer eggplantaphobia! I plan on incorporating this gem into many upcoming meals. :-)

  33. Lori says:

    I do love me some orange ginger baked tofu!

  34. Laura Beth says:

    The onion rings are FANTASTIC! My boyfriend and I made them together, and we both loved them. It was fun to see him in the kitchen making them with me, and a super sweet moment for both of us!

  35. ReneeB says:

    I would love to have Pie in the Sky. I love the chickpea cutlets:

  36. Michelle says:

    Chocolate chip cookies

  37. Nicole says:

    Chana masala! Then again if somebody simmered up a car door in Indian spices I’d probably eat it. As long as it didn’t have a leather interior. 😀

  38. Mandi says:

    When I found the chocolate chip cookie recipe, it was life changing. I had missed those wonderful treats so much and it made going (and staying) vegan a much more pleasant experience. yum.

  39. riann says:

    Would love to win this!
    I would love to try and bake the “old fashioned chocolate pudding pie”.
    Thank you.

  40. Melanie Yo says:

    I like the vanilla bean cupcakes with chocolate ganache, so tasty it’s wrong. And it allows me to make a point to my friends cupcakes don’t need dairy and butter to be amazing!
    One I want to try making is the purple Peruvian soup. I normally just smash my purple taters! NOM!

  41. lei says:

    Dyin to make “chocolate pumpkin loaf”…so perfect for this season…thank you

  42. i loooooove the portland porch lettuce wraps!

  43. Erica Cybulski says:

    The pumpkin oatmeal cookies are my favorite :) Pumpkin should be enjoyed all year round, it’s so delicious!

  44. Cara Jeanne says:

    Hands down, abso-freaking-lutely, the wheatberry paella with chickpeas and leeks. This may have been the best vegan entree I’ve made yet!

  45. choirqueer says:

    “The Best Pumpkin Muffins”. They really are.

  46. Cadry says:

    Her potato pierogis with caramelized onions are the stuff of legends!

  47. Kelly C says:

    Spaghetti No’s with the mini meatballs! Sooooo fricken good!

  48. chantal says:

    This is easy – the chickpea cutlets. My husband and I love them, as do our two toddlers.

  49. Nanette says:

    The Best Pumpkin Muffins really are the best. They’re in my top five favorite recipes of all time!

  50. Ashley says:

    I love the tofu scramble and chocolate chocolate chip cookies

  51. Cate says:

    whole wheat fig bars for sure!

  52. greyfavorite says:

    Tempeh Chili con Frijoles turned me on to tempeh for life!

  53. Michelle says:

    Hands down, Tofu Scramble. It’s a staple in my home and one of my all time favorite recipes to make.

  54. Christin says:

    Snobby Joe’s! I made them for my meat-loving boyfriend and his sister and they loved them!! These are so hearty. And i serve them on onion rolls.

  55. I have two favorites: peanut butter pillows and the baked onion rings. Oh yeah!!

  56. Amanda says:

    What crazy timing! I JUST tried the pumpkin french toast recipe yesterday, and I’m not ashamed to say I ate that shit for breakfast AND dinner! I don’t know what took me so long to try it!

  57. Tia says:

    Cashew Vegetable Korma!!! SOOOOO good. I love it. It is the best.

  58. Jeremy says:

    I love the Best Pumpkin Muffins. Just like from my childhood… but vegan.

  59. Leona says:

    My current favourite is Maple Pecan Pie. I made this recipe for Canadian Thanksgiving but not having any pecans in the house I used walnuts instead. Then I decided to add a cup of chocolate chips too! It was a huge hit and incredibly delicious. The peanut butter caramel apples are next to try they look awesome!

  60. jess says:

    i’ll totally eat an apple a day this way with pb caramel apples.

  61. Margaret says:

    The Peanut Butter Caramel Apples are calling my name big time. She just posted the recipie, but I’m going to go and try them since they look amazing.

  62. Kristy says:

    DEFINITELY the Mac & Shews. Everyone I know (vegans and omnis alike) LOVE it, I make it all the time.

  63. Caroline says:

    This is easy…Peanut Butter blondies!!!

  64. Katy says:

    I love the Seitan Portobello Stroganoff. It’s perfect over mashed potatoes on a cold, rainy day like today.

  65. Donna Hamilton says:

    Chickpea cutlets!! I make them all the time for my onmi family with mushroom gravy and they are always a hit!

  66. plaidshoes says:

    I don’t know if this was ever on the PPK Blog, but I love their rueben sandwich!

  67. Caren Green says:

    I love the scrambled tofu (I’d never had it before I discovered PPK!) and I also adore the oven-baked onion ring recipe PPK facebooked some time ago. YUM!

  68. The Maple Seitan Sausages are definitely one of my favorite recipes, I LOVE changing it up a little bit and feeding them to my non-vegan boyfriend. 😉

  69. Sandy says:

    I cannot wait to try the Doublebatch Chickpea Cutlets. :)

  70. Mary says:

    I LOVE the Baked Onion Rings!!! Such a Guilty Pleasure!

  71. Alissa says:

    Eggplant Bacon!! drooooooolz… super simple, super tasty!

  72. Christy says:

    Chocolate cupcakes!

  73. bonnie says:

    I really want to try the new recipe for the chocolate pumpkin loaf! It sounds like the best of both worlds!

  74. Nichole says:

    I’m definitely gonna go with the Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf right now. I’m kinda in love with it.

  75. Jessica says:

    DEFINITELY the Red Lentil Thai Chili. My husband and I make this constantly. I am also a HUGE fan of the chocolate chip cookie recipe! They are so classic and I know the recipe by heart.

  76. ariana says:

    The chickpea piccata! I made it when I was studying in Italy and seriously hankering for something vegan that was actually plausible to make using the small-town market near my place. Luckily it fit the bill.

  77. Caren Green says:

    I love the scrambled tofu recipe (I’d never tried it before PPK!) and also adore the oven-baked onion ring recipe on the PPK facebook page!

  78. Kat says:

    I love the chickpea cutlets! They are fabulous with gravy made with the better than bullion vegan chicken stock, and can easily be made into little nuggets for the kidos. :) We’ve fed them to my meat eating family who still think we ate chicken just for them. Lol!

  79. Cheryl Delles says:

    My favorite recipe is the Red Curry Soup with Rice and Kale. Soooooooo good. Every time.

  80. The Black Beans + Quinoa with Chipotle Raspberry Sauce is awesome. It’s all awesome. I love the PPK. aimeehagertyjohnson at gmail dot com!

  81. Jenn S says:

    Fav PPK recipe – the best banana bread – vegan or not – I’ve ever eaten:

    But I really want to make the Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf…

  82. Aimee says:

    I’ll go with Pumpkin French Toast. I made it twice this weekend.

  83. Nancy D. says:

    Spinach linguine with edamame pesto is an easy favorite. My husband and I have it at least once a month!

  84. Jennifer E says:

    Love everything Isa but my new love is the egglplant bacon! LOve it!

  85. arianna says:

    I am an absolute pumpkin fanatic, so all of PPK’s pumpkin recipes are awesome, but I especially love the bread! Amazing!!

  86. virtual.jess says:

    Oh, man. I will have to go wiiiith…. Cashew Vegetable Korma! That recipe rocks my life, I still regularly get cravings for it. It’s also cheap. And easy. No joke.

  87. Rachael says:

    I’m not going to lie… that Okra Gumbo with Chickpeas sounds AMAZING. I love gumbo! and pie! especially when it’s vegan…and in the sky.

  88. Michelle Davis says:

    Fresh Corn Johnnycakes! Wish I had some now. 😀

  89. megan says:

    Oh man. I use the sausage recipe titled “On Sausages and Community” as a basis for lots of experiments.

  90. Grilled Peaches with Ginger Coconut Caramel

    I used the caramel recipe as ice-cream mixture. Easily the tastiest ice-cream I’ve every had!

  91. Rachel says:

    Well, I haven’t tried the recipe yet, but I’m super excited to make the peanut butter caramel apples. Yum!

  92. Kimberly Lee says:

    So many great recipes to choose from….I would have to say Chickpea Cutlets are my favorite. They’re just SO GOOD! You can make them into little steaks/fillets, or nuggets, eat them in a sandwich….the list goes on and on. More importantly, you can smother them in mushroom gravy!!!!!

  93. Lacey says:

    The olive lentil burgers are my favorites. They made me actually like lentils for once :)

  94. Angela E says:

    Oh, definitely the Chickpea Cutlets. I make them all the time. I’ll have a freezer full for when my baby comes because I love them so much!

  95. Dianne says:

    I haven’t made them yet, but I really want some of the peanut butter caramel apples!

  96. Maggie Drake says:

    I would love to win your cookbook and wearables. I am changing my diet and my life, with a little help from folks like you, and I love it.

  97. Laura Ip says:

    Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf = Oh. My. Gawd.

    And, of course, any recipe in which she includes Tempeh. Isa made me LOVE Tempeh.

  98. Shakira Wood says:

    Holy hell, how am I supposed to choooose?! I hate to pick a dessert when I peruse the main dish section more, but the apple crisp is seriously fantastic! As is everything here, so…. tough one.

  99. Megan says:

    Tough call, but… the thai red lentil chili rocks my world.

  100. Angel says:

    Isa knows how to treat a squash! Cubing it and roasting those little cubes until they’re caramelized!

  101. Sarah says:

    I have to pick just one?! Well, I haven’t tried the chocolate pumpkin loaf yet, and it does look wonderful, but my all-time fave has to be the Mango Ginger Tofu. Gold. Total gold.

  102. Oh, damn. I’m Australian, so I can’t win :(

  103. val hower says:

    mine is vanilla bean cupcakes with chocolate ganache
    I made these for my 2-year-old’s birthday party. Having a kid who is allergic to milk and eggs, we are so grateful for your vegan baked goods :).

  104. Lexx says:

    Pumpkin French toast! It’s totally Rad and yummy!

  105. kristiane says:

    i made the tempeh helper recipe recently and loved it, so i’m going with that one. made it a bit too spicy for my family’s taste so i got all the leftovers, which, of course, tasted even better the next day!

  106. julia says:

    It’s too hard to pick a favourite, but I did make Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumb Pie about 900 times this past summer! Mmmmmmmmm!

  107. Nancy says:

    I love the orange cranberry muffins!

  108. Leah says:

    My favorite is her recipe for Mexican Hot Chocolate snickerdoodles. Dear god, they are delicious. I have wooed many a non-vegan with their power.

  109. Mina says:

    Mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles!


  110. Michelle says:

    The green tea cupcakes are hands down the best cupcake recipe ever!! Even my friends that do not like sweets will eat these up! 😛

  111. Greg says:

    Snobby Joes = all of the messy deliciousness of the childhood original – all of the meaness of the childhood original

  112. Katie says:

    Oh my I can’t choose just one!!!! Her pumpkin oatmeal cookies are amazing! Anything with pumpkins is delightful, they’re such happy little gourds! But then there is her Quinoa, White Bean and Kale stew that is to LIVE FOR! Oooo the choices!!!!

  113. Kate says:

    I love their blog (and their cookbooks), as they always have such great recipes. I really like their pumpkin bread recipe. It is really moist and great to make this time of year.

  114. elise says:

    The scrambled blackened tofu with garlicky grits. DEFINITELY! It was my first attempt to tofu scrambling with this recipe, and it was so delish, that since, i made it each week (and yesterday) since the recipe was posted! Served with roasted baby potatoes and you add some green like Isa said, i put some spinach at the cooking end and its a pleasure for my belly!

  115. Christi says:

    Right now, all I can think about is going home and making the peanut butter caramel apples. They are my ONE weakness during the fall holidays! But to choose a favorite, right now would be anything pumpkin.

  116. joy olivia says:

    Isa is always topping herself! And, I’m always falling in love with her recipes. I made her Chocolate Pumpkin loaf three times since she posted it last week. But, of all-time, I love (and have lost count) of the number of times I’ve made her Tempeh Chili Con Frijoles ( The original stained print-out never leaves my refrigerator door, always ready in case I feel the need for something hearty, tasty, and spicy!

  117. Jennifer Meyer says:

    My hands down favorite is the Red Lentil Thai Chili. So far. 😀

  118. Jessica says:

    The PPK popped my roasted brussell sprouts cherry. Lately, I’ve been having them several times a week! Isa- they really really do smell like popcorn when roasting!

  119. Maria says:

    So hard to choose but the Maple Pecan Pie! Made it for Thanksgiving (in Canada) and my family devoured it! Can’t wait to make it again – going to try baking a chocolate pumpkin loaf tonight which may end up being my new favourite from all the positive comments!

  120. Heather says:

    My absolute favorite are the peanut butter chocolate pillows!!!! mmmm Just thinking about them makes my pregnancy cravings go crazy!!! <3

  121. Sarah says:

    OMG oven baked onion rings! I even posted about them on my blog!

  122. Christopher says:

    My favorite recipe from PPK is whatever the most recent one is! That’s the most brown-nosey answer ever, but it’s true! I want prizes, but it’s still true! I made the chocolate pumpkin loaf this weekend and it was beyond delicious. Also, the root veggie chili is one of my standbys in fall and winter, though I’m not sure that’s technically a PPK recipe. If it’s not, it should be!

  123. Janet Gottlieb says:

    Love me some Doublebatch Chickpea Cutlets.

  124. Connie says:

    RED LENTIL THAI CHILI….all the way!

  125. Kim says:

    I love love love that basil gnocchi soup recipe with swiss chard. That stuff is hearty, filling, and perfect for the upcoming cold weather season.

  126. Hannah says:

    Eggplant Potato Moussaka with Pine Nut Cream! I made eight of these bad boys for a friend’s wedding this summer, and they were an enormous hit.

  127. Bailey says:

    I can’t choose just ONE! Isa converted me into a believer of tempeh, though. This recipe is creative and snazzy! Oh, and I love phyllo dough like WOAH!

  128. Sam says:

    Maple sausages! I’ve already made them a handful of times and love them!

  129. Hannah says:

    Eggplant Potato Moussaka with Pine Nut Cream! I made eight of these for a friend’s wedding this summer and they were a huge hit.

  130. Jenn McCauley says:

    There are so many great ones… But, Quinoa Salad With Black Beans & Mango would have to be my pick. Gluten-free never tasted so good!!

  131. Esther says:

    Umm, clearly the pecan pie. AMAZING!

  132. Sara says:

    So far my favorite recipe has been the carrot cake pancakes. I make them all the time! Everything I have tried has been damn tasty, though. That chocolate-pumpkin bread is next on my list.

  133. katie b says:

    As far as I’m concerned, Isa made my veganism possible! Keep rocking!

  134. Terry Cox says:

    Chickpea cutlets – we made sandwiches with these and top with barbecue sauce that we make.

  135. Jennifer says:

    I just made the ginger chocolate chip scones for breakfast yesterday…yum.

  136. Cari says:

    Really, REALLY want to try the Raw Strawberry Cheesecake and those afore-metioned chanterelles sound awesome too!

  137. Laura says:

    My favorite is Eggplant Potato Moussaka with Pine Nut Cream! Love this recipe!!

  138. Oscar says:

    I must go with a simple but exquisite, foolproof recipe: peanut butter chocolate pillows! They’re ridiculously easy to make — in terms of having ingredients on-hand, the actual process of making them, and their assembly — and they taste amazing. Like virtually everything else on the PPK, it’s a wonderful foodstuff and a great form of vegan baketivist propaganda, haha. :)

  139. jennypenny says:

    I’ve really enjoyed so much, as have my dad and fiance who I cook for all the time, but I think my absolute favorite has been the Oven Baked Onion Rings. They’re some work, so I make them as a special treat, but some nights nothing will do but portabella marinated in balsamic, olive oil, rosemary, and thyme with oven baked fries and onion rings!

  140. Malinde says:

    that chocolate-pumpkin cake didn’t make it 24 hours in a two person house this weekend!

  141. Bryn Jennings says:

    Black Beans & Quinoa with Chipotle Raspberry Sauce!

  142. Sara says:

    Whoo, this took some thought. I don’t know about favorites, but these are my most frequent go-to recipes: the Chickpeas Romesco from the Veganomicon (which I always have to make alongside the Tamarind Lentils, or it just doesn’t feel right) with the lemon macadamia cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Hungry now…

  143. Kovas says:

    I vote for the Seitan Portobello Stroganoff.

  144. Tim says:

    The Raspberry Jam Swirl Crumbcake!!!!! (though I call if coffee cake too!)

  145. Adrienne Wiley-Thomas says:

    Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf!!

    hooray for giveaways!

  146. ChikaPunk says:

    LENTIL TACCCOOOS 😀 and every single thing i make from the website! this is such an unfair question…. but i had to pick one 😀

  147. Isabel says:

    I LOVE the chocolate pumpkin loaf.

  148. Tami says:

    salt and pepper tofu!

  149. Rob says:

    If you’re gonna make me pick just one, it’s gotta be the chickpea cutlets.

  150. deb says:

    LOVE the Fronch Toast, really amazing!!

  151. Tracey says:

    Well besides all of them, i’m going with the peanut pretzel apple drop cookies as one of my staple items. yum yum yum!

  152. lyn hart says:

    I’m a “new” vegan, as in I’ve been vegan exactly 29 days, 5 hours, & 20 minutes (well, maybe it’ll be 25 minutes by the time I get done writing this). I’m 51, so it has been a fun & challenging change! My biggest discovery is tofu scramble… I say biggest because I did not expect to love it SO much as I had a little tofu-phobia thing going on. So far I have had the “basic scramble” version & I’m looking forward to trying the fancier recipes since discovering the PPK blog– Blackened Scrambled Tofu & Garlicky Grits (I’m a Southern girl, too!) & Puttanesca Tofu Scramble are calling my name!

    Thank you for putting such great info on the web & the blogosphere… I have to say that the glossy publications out there who claim they live to promote veganism fall pretty short when it comes to helping out us new vegans on the block!

  153. Christine says:

    Oh! Usually the last one I’ve made. In this case, the pumpkin chocolate loaf I made last weekend. YUM YUM!

  154. Cheryl says:

    Whole wheat fig bars! It’s one of those amazing, pretty-simple recipes that just make you feel good. Mmmmm figs!

  155. sarah says:

    my fav is the orange ginger baked tofu! seriously amaaaaazing!!!

  156. Rebekkah says:

    I absolutely love the marionberry lavender scone recipe; I bake them all the time!

  157. Rusty M. says:

    Really? Just one? *sigh* Okay. Right now I think it’s the chickpea cutlets. They are so versatile.

  158. My favorite – Chickpea Cutlets! And Scrambled Tofu is close behind…

  159. Alyssa says:

    The creamy red chard linguine. Unreal.

  160. martha says:

    I can’t wait to try the chocolate pumpkin loaf from the blog! But, my all time favs are chickpea cutlets and the pumpkin oatmeal cookies from VWAV. Amazing. :) Can’t wait to get Pie in the Sky!

  161. Lauri Hoff says:

    The Macaroni and Cheese recipe…the one with Sauerkraut. It’s amazing! I like it with Frank’s Red Hot. Swooning right now!

  162. Robin says:

    Gingerbread Cut-out Cookies! I’ve made these twice over the past month. I used most of the cookies as a base for a pumpkin maple pie, and it was soooo delicious. The leftover cookies were eaten by me, my vegan daughter, my non-vegan mom, and my non-vegan brother. They all love these cookies! :)

  163. Kelly says:

    Since I’m eating a piece of it right now and convincing myself to at least wait a bit before I eat a second piece, I’m going to go with the Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf! So yummy guys, make this!

  164. shawn hammond says:

    I just made the chocolate pumpkin loaf.
    Moist, chocolatey with the fall spices.
    The taste cannot be described and is loved by everybody

  165. Robynn says:

    Definitely the smoky maple sausages! They are to die for! I love most variations on Isa’s sausages, but these are by far my fav!

  166. Deena says:

    I like the Quinoa, White Bean And Kale Stew. Yum yum. :)

  167. Andrea B. says:

    Oh, that’s easy! Tempeh con Frijoles! Easy to make, hard to screw up, and I have won a chili cookoff with it!

  168. Lauri Hoff says:

    I want to mention the tofu benny!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes, tofu benny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More exclamation points.

  169. Jessica Fair says:

    I am hooked on the Blackened Scrambled Tofu & Garlicky Grits. So damn tasty!

  170. Erin says:

    The Scalloped Potatoes and Eggplant Bacon fulfills my bottomless desire for creamy dishes.

  171. Laura T says:

    Definitely the OMG Baked Onion Rings.

  172. Stephanie says:

    Salt and pepper tofu!!

  173. veganlinda says:

    OMG Oven Baked Onion Rings because it made an onion ring lover out of me and I can feel okay about feeding them to my family. Carnists enjoy them too. Win-win-win!

  174. Kristi Murphy says:

    I kinda live for this time of the year and any excuse to make my whole apartment smell like pumpkin is just fine by me. My favorite recipe from PPK is the Best Pumpkin Muffins, they are always gone in half a second and my apartment smells lovely.

  175. Suzanne says:

    Chickpea cutlets!

  176. Scott says:

    I’m a big fan of the chana masala, and I can’t wait for my copy of Pie in the Sky to arrive in the mail tomorrow. Amazon pre-orders are awesome.

  177. Jill says:

    Snobby Joe’s are a favorite in our house!!!

  178. Ashley Cleveland says:

    My favorite recipe is the Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf! I made it a couple days ago and it was scrumptious! Perfect for the season! Yummy! I have ALL of your cookbooks and I love PPK!

  179. mariser says:

    Blackened Tofu and Garlicky Grits.
    garlic grits make everything better

  180. Mike says:

    Nothing better in fall than Apple Pie Pancakes!

  181. Zoey says:

    I make the Chickpea Rice Soup with Cabbage once a week! It is a staple meal for my family and we all love it!

  182. LEolin Lopez says:

    Pick just one?!?! YIKES. I love the Pumpkin muffins and since its fall I can make them all the time:-)

  183. Lex says:

    It’s so hard to pick, but when I think of a recipe I was instantly obsessed with (so much so that I made it twice in about 5 days), it is the raspberry jam swirl crumbcake

    URL for the recipe:

  184. Alec says:

    Being a native to Minnesota, and seeing that it’s Fall, anything pumpkin is high on the list. My all time go to favorite when it comes to pumpkin breakfasts, however, is without a doubt the Pumpkin Waffles. They’re always a huge hit!

  185. Mmothra says:

    The chickpea cutlets are SO good, SO satisfying (especially with onion-mushroom gravy), it is really hard for me to express. They make wonderful next day lunches, too!

  186. My favorite – Chickpea Cutlets (almost tied with Scrambled Tofu)

  187. Michelle says:

    Garlicky Thyme Tempeh! (preferably if served with Caulipots, Silky Chickpea Gravy, and mebbe some steamed green beans for good measure!)

    Omg, I’m so dang hungry now!

  188. Ali Lazewski says:

    Chana Masala Every.Time. Nom Nom Nom.

  189. Dorie says:

    We have Chickpea Piccata about once a week. Love it!

  190. Lauren says:

    The chickpea piccata – it’s insanely delicious for how simple the recipe is!

  191. The Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes are great, and if you’re short on time, just eat the chocolate mousse by itself.

  192. Jeri says:

    Made the tortilla soup (AFD) yesterday, YUM!

  193. Holly says:

    There’s so many!! I think I have to go with Snobby Joes.

  194. Jen Tolnay says:

    Chocolate pumpkin loaf! Had to run into the kitchen and make it! Also, love the cookie jar mix – my son is newly vegan and a college freshman. I’m can’t wait to give him a jar of the cookie mix – he’ll be able to make homemade vegan cookies easily even when he’s not living at home (well, he doesn’t make them at home – I make them for him). Thanks for the recipes!

  195. Hillary says:

    Toss up between spaghetti no’s and chickpea cutlets….but the winner is definitely chickpea cutlets. So yummy, so quick…a go-to staple in our house. And bonus, the 3 year old approves!

  196. j-dub says:

    Pumpkin oatmeal cookies! There was a period where I was making them weekly. And adding butterscotch chips. Or sandwiching chai buttercream between them. They really are the greatest cookies ever.

  197. Angie says:

    Love, love, love the Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes!

  198. Lazi says:

    love cookies and make them for friends… but sometimes i want to send a care package or a fun gift, so one of my first favorites is the cookie jar mix 😀

  199. Rebecca says:

    What a great prize! It is so hard to pick a favorite, but I have to go with Chickpea Piccata. So easy, so good!

  200. Chickpea cutlets. They are SO freaking delicious, I love them on sandwiches. I make the double batch recipe all the time.

  201. I’ve made the Cashew Vegetable Korma a few times. It’s a bunch of earthy homey goodness!

  202. Ruthy says:

    I’ve tried most of the recipes from The Post Punk Kitchen, and all of them are good. But the Chana Masala is my favorite!

  203. Julie Lynn says:

    I’m going to have to go with the Pear Frangipane Tart. Beautiful!

  204. Alison says:

    You want me to choose?? Srsly?? Okay, I’m going chickpea cutlet (picatta style)…. We also get down with olive lentil burgers quite frequently.

  205. kala says:

    Thanks so much for the chance to win! My faves are the Gingerbread Cut Out Cookies, I make them every year for the holidays.

  206. Jenna says:

    This is a tough choice, as the site has been one of my go to sources when my mind starts wandering towards dinner. I’ll go with the wheatberry paella, as I’ve made it multiple times and it’s always tasty and satisfying.

  207. Chelsea Ahern says:

    I can only pick one favorite? Just this weekend I made the spinach and roasted cauliflower ricotta lasagna, red thai tofu, thai basil green beans, hoisin/mustard tofu wraps, unfried fried rice, and orange drenched broccoli! And I’m making my version of the cowgirl cookies (at least that’s what I call them, are they cowpoke cookies maybe? I dunno) from VCIYCJ and some Isa pizza tonight! I’m fairly certain I would die without Isa’s cookbooks.

  208. Amber says:

    The Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles:

    Took these to work for a conference with primarily non-vegans, and they were gone in 20 minutes. I had 10 emails begging for the recipe by the time I got home. And you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen.

  209. Sue M says:

    I love the Gingerbread Cut-out Cookie recipe! It’s great because I always have the simple ingredients on hand, they’re better for you than lots of other versions, and they’re delicious!

  210. Lee-Ann says:

    The Apple Pie Pancakes, a delicious breaky treat, won most favourite with my twin nieces. The Scalloped Potatoes with eggplant bacon, which I’m excited to make this week, will surely be a huge hit with my husband. My favourite, however, is the Pear Frangipane Tart…with shortbread crust! (Thanks for including us Canadians!)

  211. Sarah Merchant says:

    Brown Sugar Peach Spelt Muffins. MMMMM. I want to make some NOW!

  212. RG says:

    Mine is the ‘ol standby Chickpea Cutlets. So good that even meateaters ask for seconds. So delicious with steamed green beans and mashed sweet potatoes. Hmmm… I think I will make it this week! :)

  213. Gale says:

    I’m gonna whip up the Pesto Soup with Gnocchi Beans and Greens tonight.
    I don’t do bad baking, but I’m not much of a cook – so wish me luck that the smoke alarm doesn’t become my buddy! Again!

  214. Jen says:

    Oh man!
    I am in love with the eggplant bacon!!

  215. Joanne Zdrojewski says:

    Chocolate Pie of course!

  216. Joanne says:

    My favorite are the Punk Rock Cookie Jar mixes! I LOVE cookies, these make WONDERFUL gifts! ( and show non-vegans that we can also rock some cookies! )

  217. Megan says:

    MAC AND SHEWS! Best use of sauerkraut ever. Best vegan Mac and cheese ever.

  218. missmuffcake says:

    I have my eye on this: Old Fashioned Chocolate Pudding Pie

  219. Diana says:

    Butternut Rancheros! Forever changed how I think about squash. Will stop myself from listing all the other recipes that I love from that site….

  220. Jenn says:


  221. Betsy says:

    Pesto soup with gnocchi, greens and beans! So fragrant and addictive.

  222. AM says:

    I’ve always wanted to make the OMG Oven-Baked Onion Rings. And I will, someday!

  223. Eggplant Bacon!!! Who in their right mind can live without a BLT every once in awhile??? :)

  224. caitlin says:

    basic chocolate chip cookies…I cannot control myself around them. :>

  225. Nancy says:

    The Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles are amazing! When I first made them, my son gobbled up three in a row. He’s 4 years old. Thank for the giveaway.

  226. Gale says:

    I’m gonna whip up the Pesto Soup with Gnocchi, Beans and Greens tonight.

    I’m not a bad baker, but not so good of a cook (I keep being distracted by cool contests like win something from PPK – which I hope, I hope, I hope I do!!!). So, wish me luck and hope that the smoke alarm does not try to become my buddy. Again.

  227. Kathy T says:

    So many look good but the Chana Masala would be my favorite.

  228. What a fab giveaway! Thus far, my favorite is the okra gumbo :)

  229. Kate says:

    I love Isa’s choco chip cookie recipes, both the original Earth Balance-based version and the new oil one on the PPK ( These things convinced me to go vegan and have swayed more than one friend or co-worker of mine to rethink their attitudes about vegan food.

  230. Angela says:

    Choosing one favorite is hard, but I’ll give my current favorite. I have been super into the Creamy Red Chard Linguine lately ( It’s my favorite way to eat chard that I’ve tried so far. Plus…it’s pink. And we all know that pink foods are better than non-pink foods.

  231. Erin says:

    Hard to pick just one, but I’ll follow the rules and go with the chocolate chip cookies! I can think of no better recipe to dispel the myth that vegans are somehow deprived of deliciousness.

  232. Geneve says:

    The Chana Masala was great. I tried it a few weeks ago and served it with brown rice and store-bought roti.

    As for my favourite, make this over and over again recipe: Chickpea cutlets. When I have friends coming over and I know they’re nervous about vegan food or they assume I’m just going to feed them tofu, I break out the chickpea cutlets and serve ’em up with garlic mashed potatoes, roasted veggies and buckets of mushroom and onion gravy.

    Next, I’m eager to try the Mushroom Hot Pot.

  233. Krista says:

    I made the mushroom hotpot a couple of days ago, and it was soooo good!

  234. Lydia says:

    Oooh, I looove the chocolate pumpkin loaf. It’s perfect for this time of year but I’ll eat it all year long.

  235. Erin says:

    My whole family loves the spaghetti nos with lentil meatballs! Way better than the original.

  236. Adrienne says:

    Mine is the Black bean & Quinoa with Chipotle Raspberry sauce. A variety of my fave ingredients packed into one delicious concoction. Blackbeans + Quinoa + Spicy + Raspberries = Awesome!!

  237. elyse says:

    the mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles are my favourite!

  238. Megan says:

    The tofu omelets are my absolute favorite. They pretty blew my mind the first time I made them! Incredible!

  239. alexandra s says:

    Hey Guys! I’m all about the Ethiopian Spicy Tomato Lentil soup …I love love love it! Did I mention I love it? 😉

  240. Shannon says:

    My favorite recipe of ALL TIME is “Bikram Baking: Ginger Chocolate Chunk Scones.” It is the most therapeutic, kickass scone you could ever hope to make. BAM.

  241. celyn says:

    I really love the tofu omelets! I have my eyes on those spaghetti-no’s.

  242. caroline says:

    Oh man, I’ve made so many! Let’s go with chocolate chip cookies. Or chana masala.

  243. I am constantly referring to ppk for recipes or general recipe guidelines when I’m cooking. My go to ppk recipe is, I believe, not on the blog anymore but I know it by heart. I love love love the tofu ricotta. Whether I’m making a lasagna or stuffed shells its always so delicious.

  244. Emma says:

    chickpea cutlets!

  245. What a generous giveaway! The best recipe I’ve tried thus far is the PPK’s Sanctuary Dip. Traditional ranch dressing has been such a task to replace, but this recipe has gotten me pretty close.

  246. Suzanne says:

    Definitely the Chickpea Cutlets! They are a staple in our house!

  247. Alexandra says:

    Chickpea cutlets! They have helped me make over so many favorite recipes!

  248. Tzivya says:

    I love all things Isa Chandra! I have a major foodie crush on her!
    My absolute favorite PPK recipe is the latkes, although the VWAV autumn root vegetable latkes are even better.
    I would love to add the pie book to my collection of awesome Isa Chandra Terry Hope delicious cookbooks!
    Thanks for running this contest :)

  249. Nora says:

    The Best Pumpkin Muffins are fabulous! And yesterday I made Isa’s Triple Apple Cider Bundt Cake. It may have been the best cake I have ever made!!!

  250. Kate Musselman says:

    I must admit, I cook almost exclusively from Isa and/or Terry’s cookbooks. They’re all fantastic! I’m hoping VPITS will help me get over my issues with pie crust and finally, finally I will emerge triumphant with Actual Pie, rather than facing a tough lump of dough beneath a sodden mess of fruit …

  251. Dominique says:

    Shiitake Bahn Mi salad

  252. Roni says:

    The pear frangipane tart is ridiculous. I would marry it if I could.

  253. Dynah says:

    Maybe a boring choice, but I love the Doublebatch Chickpea Cutlets recipe. Twice the cutlets and actually less work than the original- since I don’t have to worry about grating garlic and lemon zest.

  254. Jessica says:

    It’s so hard to pick one, but since I’m eating it right now and it’s sooo good I’ll go with chana masala!

  255. christina carlisle says:

    I just made the chickpea cutlets for the first time last night……Love them!!!!!

  256. Michelle says:

    Pumpkin Muffins…num, num, num.

  257. Lori P says:

    I became a vegan about a month ago, and I can’t remember how long it has been since I’ve felt this good! Isa has become my hero! I am eating my way through Veganomicon one recipe at a time. I’m loving all the apple and pumpkin recipes right now, and those caramel apples look like they’re the bomb!

  258. Jillian says:

    The chana massala!
    However, everything at the PPK is delicious!!!

  259. carolyn says:

    LOVE the Ancho Lentil Tacos… although the pumpkin pie brownies are a close fave.

  260. Barb Perez says:

    OH Holy Cow! The mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles are one of my favorites!

  261. Sheridan says:

    Spaghetti Nos with mini lentil meatballs all the way!!! Such a great blast-from-the-past recipe and tons of fun to make!

  262. Katie says:

    broccoli curry udon! so good!

  263. Samantha says:

    I LOVE the chana masala! Yay chickpeas!

  264. Shannon says:

    Hot pot! Hot pot! Hot pot!

  265. Rebecca says:

    Wow–picking a favorite is really hard! I make something from the cupcake cookbook weekly. One of my faves from the blog was berry creme tart with cocoa olive oil crust. As always, both imaginative and super good.

  266. Iany says:

    Mocha chip muffins, without a doubt. We make these at least every couple of weeks.

  267. Colleen says:

    Wow — what a difficult decision to make. Like the rest of you, I love so many of these.

    Still, I’m going to say the cast-iron tofu stir fry, in large part because it helped me solidify a really good method for stir-frying at home so I could get the results I really wanted, lousy apartment stove and all.

  268. Monica says:

    Definitely Rad Whip. Never again will I have to choose between overpriced soy/rice whip and naked pumpkin pie. :)

  269. Mary says:

    Snobby Joes!!
    After discovering this recipe, my weeknights have never been the same :)

  270. Suss B says:

    Snobby Joes are withoutadoubt the best recipe I’ve found on the PPK. I made them at a Chili Party a month ago. It was used in sandwiches, on chips, with guac, and even got dunked in by an egg roll.

  271. Amber says:

    The Eggplant Bacon has make a nice addition to a lot of dishes I’ve made! It’s one of my favorite recipes I’ve found here.

  272. Audra says:

    Made this ( over the weekend and it was A-M-A-

  273. Jane says:

    The scalloped potatoes with eggplant bacon is my favorite. Comfort food at it’s best!

  274. Jen Hnatko says:

    Peanut Butter Pillows! They help me turn skeptics into vegan-cookie-monsters every year!

    I’d love to win this giveaway!!

  275. Kali says:

    I love the vanilla bean cupcakes with chocolate ganache!!! I used the ganache on some mini cupcakes I brought to a house warming party. All my non-veg friends loved them.

  276. Steve says:

    I am a coffee junkie and have to have some sort of baked good to accompany the nectar of the gods. And since it’s Fall, I’m going to say Isa’s Chocolate Pumkin Loaf is my favorite.

  277. Angey says:

    Love the green bean casserole. Initially I made it as a holiday dish but love it so much I make it year round. Easy and very tasty.

  278. KJ says:

    Peanut butter pillows!

  279. Rachel says:

    Spinach linguine and edamame pesto. Mmm! I Want some now!

  280. Kali Carys says:

    Rad Whip is pretty much my favourite thing ever. it’s beautifully versatile — from pumpkin pie topping, to a classy (& tasty splash in creamy soups), to the delicious challenge to overcome in consuming a vegan-dyke muff diver.

  281. Anneh says:

    Yay, open to Canadians!!! I lurrrrrvvvve Mini Lentil Meatballs, although mine are often not so mini!

  282. Deborah W says:

    Hands down fave: Fresh Corn Johnnycakes

  283. Heather says:

    Well, if I have to pick a favorite…Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf!!!

  284. Rosa Leonard says:

    I am super excited for the Peanut Butter-Caramel Apples that you just posted. I’ve been totally loving apples this season and this sounds fabulous! I can’t wait to make them this weekend! 😀

  285. Aness says:

    I love love love the cashew korma recipe!!! Vegan Pie in the Sky is the next cookbook on my list and so would love it if I won it!!

  286. Kim says:

    Oh my gosh, so many to chose from. I make a double batch of chickpea cutlets every single week and we eat them at least once for dinner and in sandwiches all week. So that’s probably the one. Although I also love the chocolate pumpkin loaf she just posted. I made it yesterday to rave reviews. Thanks

  287. Gen Morris says:

    Proud to be Canadian. Love the pumpkin muffins. I have been vegan now for 3 months and would love to pie up my kitchen. Love Isa’s cookbooks.

  288. esme says:

    ginger punks! i make them every year!

  289. Shannon says:

    Chickpea Rice Soup with Cabbage – easy and delicious….

  290. Christina says:

    Chana masala!

  291. Priscilla says:

    Red Lentil Thai Chili, handsdown!

  292. Caroline says:

    the pumpkin pie brownie recipe was my first vegan baking success!!! they are AMAZING

  293. Pam G says:

    My Favorite is Snobby Joes. They go to every pot luck and vegan food tasting. I love them! They are always a big hit.

  294. joz says:

    tofu scramble is my favorite! i make it all the time and mix different veggies with it.

  295. erin says:

    I don’t go long wihtout eating chickpea cutlets, all thanks to Isa and Terry!

  296. Amanda says:

    Favorite PPK recipe, and well all time fave recipe of anyone’s, anywhere is the Spicy Peanut Eggplant And Shallot Stew over a bed of jasmine rice.

  297. Lorrie says:

    I am crazy about the Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf posted a few days ago….and a whole potluck full of people was too!

  298. Kate says:

    I just can’t enough of Isa’s maple pecan pie. I make it all the time to rave reviews!

  299. Ashley says:

    Tempeh Sausage Crumbles

    They were the first real vegan cooking I attempted and afterwards I totally knew I could be vegan!

    But pies…oh pies I have a serious serious problem with pie crusts. I sooo need this book.

  300. mandy says:

    vegan chocolate pumpkin bread is awesome!!!

  301. LG says:

    Banana bread–all the way!

  302. Elizabeth Manning says:

    Sunny corn muffins. They can be eaten at or in-between any meal!

  303. Megan says:

    I just noticed the peanut butter caramel apples, and I am getting swoony. However, I am having Spicy Peanut Eggplant and Shallot Stew ( and it is sooooooo delicious. It’s my latest favorite.

  304. Holly says:

    Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes! 😀

  305. astrea says:

    peanut butter chocolate pillow cookies. My friends heart me for bringing these to school once a quarter. :)

  306. foodstains says:

    The olive lentil burgers are my go-to veggie burger recipe; they’re spectacular!

  307. Maple PECAN PIE for this vegan Canadian Mofo. I live in maple syrup Capital and I would eat this any time of day. Possibly for my birthday which is just around the corner. VEGAN MOFO and Isa forever!

  308. Meg says:

    Snobby Joes was my first ever PPK dinner, found on the original PPK website, and it remains my favorite. Yum!

  309. jamie v. says:

    chickpea cutlets!!! the basic chocolate cupcake and vegan buttercream frosting from vctotw are also staples in our home for birthdays. i take 2 dozen with us whenever we take our 3 year old to a birthday party, so she always has a treat to eat with the non-vegans, and inevitably they all get eaten and people ‘can’t believe’ they are vegan. i love busting the myth that vegan food doesn’t taste good. can’t wait to make some PIE!!!!

  310. Sara says:

    Carrot cake pancakes! I pine for them…

  311. Katrina says:

    Apple pie pancakes…..num, num, num!!!!

  312. Colleen Donnelly says:

    I love the Sunny Cornbread Muffins!!!! The lemon zest gives these muffins the perfect lemony kick! I also have been adding blueberries to these lovely treats! Sooooo Gooood! I made them low fat with applesauce instead of oil and they were to die for! I make them at least every two weeks!

  313. Marchell says:

    Although I’ve been a long-time fan of the PPK, my favorite recipe is a new-ish one: the strawberry rhubarb crumb pie. When strawberries and rhubarb were in peak season this summer (on the East Coast of Canada!), I actually went a week where I made this pie every. single. day. Every day. To me, it is the perfect.

  314. Mel says:

    Incredibly hard to pick a favorite, since they are all winners, but Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes rendered my mind blown!

  315. Chrissy says:

    This is an incredibly difficult question because I have loved every single PPK-related recipe I have ever tried! Isa and Terry are vegan sorceresses. I am going to vote the pumpkin chocolate loaf because I am going to try it this weekend.

  316. Leah says:

    It’s all about the pesto soup with gnocchi, beans, and greens.

  317. Molly Di Fede says:

    love, Love, LOve, LOVe, LOVE Isa’s Mocha Chocolate Chip Muffins, though really I love ALL her cooking! Sooooo happy to have AFR and Veganomicon and Vegan With A Vengeance in my kitchen arsenal!

  318. Monica says:

    Pretty sure I could live on any of the chickpea recipes, but chickpea cutlets are my favorite!

  319. Jennifer says:

    I love all the recipes I find here, but I’m dying to try and make these Peanut Butter Caramel Apples:

  320. Angie Quinn says:

    Homemade seitan is a great, easy to follow recipe, and all the rest provide awesome inspiration!

  321. Angela says:

    Every recipe that I’ve made from their books and website hasn’t failed me. However, I’m going to have to go with one that I make every year around this time: Okra Gumbo!

  322. Marla says:

    Mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles! I love spicy chocolate anything.Thanks for the contest!

  323. Smorgas Vegan says:

    Cashew vegetable korma, baby! And I’m dying to try the chocolate pumpkin loaf!

  324. Laura says:

    Can’t beat the scrambled tofu!

  325. Erika says:

    Gosh, so hard to choose!
    I guess I would have to say the Creamy Swiss Chard Linguine for savory dish and the magical coconut bars for dessert…yummmz

  326. Em says:

    Best giveaway ever!!

    I don’t know for sure if this is on the site, but the Gingerbread Apple Pie from Vegan with a Vengeance is my thanksgiving tradition. So delicious!

  327. Kelly says:

    Seriously. The BEST Pumpkin Muffins ever. This is the perfect season, but I make them year-round and they are always a hit. That said, I have had nothing but delicious success and oodles of yums with all of Isa’s recipes. PPK Rocks.

  328. Natalie says:

    East Coast Coffee Cake! There’s nothing better!

  329. Denise R R says:

    Love the onion rings! It’s practically guilt-free and better than the “traditional” ones.

  330. ARo says:

    Oooh! I pick the first PPK recipe I ever made, which was also my
    introduction to PPK and delicious vegan foods! Potato kale enchiladas!
    With the amazing made from scratch enchilada sauce! Best.

  331. Angela says:

    I have never tried a recipe of Isa’s that I didn’t like!!! She is my punk-rock idol…I even had the opportunity to meet her one year at the Boston veg fest a few years back and completely wimped out because I am in such awe ;0p (needless to say my companions make fun of me to this day).
    I made the eggplant bacon and potato recipe that she recently posted and it’s like crack for your mouth…not that I know anything about crack…but I do know a lot about food…just look at my thighs…tee hee!!!

  332. VeganMom says:

    I love them all! But since I had to pick one to enter this contest, I asked my boys. They are 5 and 3, and quickly answered “chocolate cake!”. Because, as my eldest says, “we are vegan, so we can lick the bowl!” So there you have it, can’t argue with that!

  333. Sandy says:

    Just one?! If you go by how many times I’ve made them, then the Peanut Butter Blondies win, hands down!

  334. RachelZ says:

    I feel like Isa & Terry are my best buds in the kitchen. They have pretty much the only recipes I’ll make for company without testing them first, because I just trust that they’ll be good and make sense, etc! I compare all other cookbooks to theirs and then point out the flaws in the others.

    Anyway, my fav recipe that’s on the site is the Seitan Portabello Stroganoff Omnis ask me for the recipe whenever I make it. SO GOOD!!

  335. Julia says:

    Eggplant Bacon!

  336. rachel says:

    i like the mini meatballs recipe. yum!

  337. Geneviève says:

    The Black Beans & Quinoa with Raspberry chipotle sauce… yum!

  338. Betty says:

    I love the recipes on the PPK! Honestly though what kid doesn’t love graham crackers and the recipe on the PPK is great! My daughter has had food allergies all her life and became veg when she was 11. I’ve been veg for years, but trying to find great vegan recipes to please young children is hard, but the PPK rocks it!

  339. Bridget says:

    Picking one recipe is so hard. If I have to narrow it down to posted on the blog the first one that comes to mind is the pumpkin muffins. I have fed them to tons of kids and parents with much success. We love your recipes.

  340. Shanan says:

    The Pesto Soup with Gnocchi, Beans & Greens

    The soup base is not only delicious it freezes well. A huge time saver during the work week.

  341. Nick says:

    Just made the Okra Gumbo last night and it was dee-lish, so I’m going to have to go with that.

  342. Flissy says:

    Oh, it’s totally the Ginger Chocolate Scones.

  343. Natalie says:

    oh and also, the peanut butter chocolate pillows!

  344. Kelly says:

    I love the Chesapeake Tempeh Crabcakes! Baked, not fried. With double the delicious remoulade!

  345. Lori W. says:

    Gotta be the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe… I make those puppies on a weekly basis (and eat most of the batter before if gets into the oven).

  346. cathy says:

    Only one?! OK, I’ll go with “Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles”. One of the greatest cookies ever! Vegans and non-vegans gobble them up.

  347. Amy small says:

    Chickpea noodle soup !! So good with kale!

  348. MizzB says:

    Break my heart here – I have to chose one recipe from the PPK collection? Rules – made to be broken. My favorite is between the Tempeh sausage crumbles, which I have been known to shape into sausage patties and freeze for a quick sammich treat, and the Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes.
    Seriously, these two recipes were my Tempeh cooking introductions, and made a believer out of me. Thank you for the giveaways.

  349. Stephanie says:

    My favorite PPK post has to be the pumpkin pie brownies – it was my first foray into vegan baking! I brought it into work last year, didn’t tell anyone it was vegan, and it was a huge hit. When I told them it was dairy- and egg-free, they were so impressed!! Haven’t turned back since.

  350. Matthew says:

    I love the Perfect Grilled Portobellos. Almost a weekly meal at my house.

  351. Mary Beth Schuler says:

    My vote is for I bake 2-3 times a week, and everyone always wants more of these. (And folks think they are super complicated because of the layering!)

  352. *~jacinda~* says:

    I would die to win this being a huge Isa fan:) I can only pick one favorite? Sheesh, I can’t! It would have to be between Pumpkin Pie Brownies and Red Lentil Thai Chili. I love too many too pick just one! That’s a dessert and a entree for ya:P Please pick me, I love vegan mo-fo and ppk, so keep rockin!

  353. Kamaile says:

    chocolate chip cookies!

  354. juan says:

    Has to be the Cashew Korma. In fact, I just made it last week for the second time. It’s pretty easy considering the result is a HUGE pot of mind-blowing korma. I’ve eaten some for lunch or dinner almost every day since, and still have a HUGE pot of mind-blowing korma. Kudos, Isa! <3

  355. So much deliciousness! But I think what I’ve made the most is the chickpea piccata! It’s amazing.

  356. Erin says:

    Cupcakes! Vanilla bean with chocolate ganache-AWESOME!

  357. I *just* made her chocolate pumpkin bread from the blog, and LOVED it. But I must say her pecan bars from her VCIYCJ and the mushroom pastry thing from Veganomicon are out of this world! I can’t wait to get my hands on this book!

  358. Jill D. says:

    VERY hard to choose, but I would say Chickpea Piccata for the main course and Peanut Butter Blondies for dessert. AMAZING.

  359. Chelsea says:

    My favorite favorite favorite favorite cake of all time and favorite PPK recipe, is the Just Chocolate Cake.

  360. Chelsea says:

    My favorite favorite favorite cake, and favorite PPK recipe, is Just Chocolate Cake.

  361. Sara Stanton says:

    Pasta Della California rocks! It was my first recipe to make out of VCON too! Plus, it’s fun to sing along to the Dead Kennedy’s and insert the recipe title…

  362. Lovin the pb caramel apples just posted!

  363. Marlene Stein says:

    The pumpkin chocolate is terrific!

  364. Marlene Stein says:

    The chocolate pumpkin bread is terrific!

  365. PPK Olive Lentil Burgers are everything that is good in this world all smashed and presented in patty form. And I love them!

  366. Hayden Hernandez says:

    chickpea cutlets. That was easy! Free stuff now please.

  367. Daphna says:

    The Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows ( I wasn’t a huge fan of chocolate and peanut butter, but these totally changed my mind! I bake a lot for my co-workers and they all raved about them too!

  368. Megan says:

    Chana masala! And spaghetti-o’s! *drool*

  369. true indigo says:

    Hands down, my fav PPK recipe is Tin Foil Beets. It made me, my hubby, son and daughter-in-law all avid beet worshipers.

  370. Annie says:

    Her Quinoa, White Bean and Kale Stew was my first attempt at cooking kale. Though I was terrified of something with kale AND quinoa AND leeks AND fennel seed (eep!), it tasted so good it was one brick in my road into veganism. Now I even have my own food blog! I love the ppk!!!

  371. suzanne says:

    I love the pumpkin chocolate loaf…I’m waiting for my grocery to re-stock pumpkin so I can make this again.

  372. Jane says:

    As much as I love so many of the PPK recipes, for creativity and yumminess, I think the one I have to pick is the basic Homemade Seitan, because you can’t live without it.

  373. Wowzers – 385 comments already?!? Vegans really want some PPK swag!
    Well, it’s gotta be Isa’s Seitan & Broccoli With Pantry BBQ Sauce – that combo has scored me some major, major points. If I get lucky and win, I’ll tell ya what they were.

  374. Joelle says:

    One? We have to pick ONE? If I must. I’ll go with Tempeh Helper b/c it is one of my quick I don’t know what to make for dinner meals.

  375. Janet says:

    The ‘Garlicky Thyme Tempeh’ is great. And, I have to add the ‘Old Fashioned Chocolate Pudding Pie’. So great to have a creamy pie without tofu as the main ingredient!!

  376. Alli says:

    acorn squash empanadas <3

  377. naomi says:

    Rad Whip, of course!

  378. Rawlines says:

    I can’t play favourites, so I’ll say a recent hit around these parts was the Okra Gumbo. Delish! Thanks, PPK pals! Pie for all. xo

  379. Shannon says:

    It’s impossible to pick a favorite, so I’ll go with the last thing that I made from the PPK. The Lemongras Noodle Bowl with Mock Duck. Yummy!

  380. Emily Monroe says:

    The recipe I want to try this week is the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins – I could not possibly pick a favorite of Isa’s recipes, even if I limited them to only the ones posted on this site! Isa makes is easy to be vegan!

  381. Lizzie says:

    The very first seitan recipe I tried was the one on the PPK, and it’s still my favorite, all these years later.

  382. Diana Carroccia says:

    The apple pie pancakes!

  383. Karen says:

    These burgers but made in a loaf pan (and I subbed green bell pepper for the olives), then doused lovingly with this gravy

    That was my Thanksgiving dinner this year!

  384. Kylie D says:

    I just made this Vegan Apple Crisp- a delicious new favorite!

    Thanks so much for the contest!

  385. MonsterAteMy says:

    It was the Red Lentil Thai Chili; that was the first one I ever printed out to try. Yum!

  386. Adrea says:

    Okay I admit it – I was not familiar with the PPK blog until your post! But I have had Vegan Pie in the Sky on my Amazon wish list for months now. So I just went on PPK and I’m in love! I want to make it all. But right now nothing sounds better than the Mushroom Hot Pot. Oh what I wouldn’t give for a nice bowl right now…

  387. The Chana Masala recipe is the bomb and I can’t wait to try the Eggplant Bacon. Yay for PPK!

  388. Allison says:

    My favorite thing in the whole world are the Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows. They are incredible!!!! I hope I win this giveaway. It’s one of the best giveaways I’ve seen in ages. Thanks so much! – Allison

  389. Ann says:

    I love the mexican hot chocolate cookies. Every time I bring them anywhere they are a HIT!

  390. Christine says:

    I have an affinity for comfort food and the old school recipe for Spicy Peanut Eggplant Stew always hits the spot. My BF developed a peanut allergy recently so I’ve adapted it with almond butter and it’s just as rich and yummy!

  391. Tiffany C says:

    Red curry soup with purple kale is my favorite fall staple. Delectable!

  392. Tiffany C says:

    Red curry with purple kale is the perfect staple for fall! Delectable!

  393. Brenda P says:

    The Orange Ginger Baked Tofu with some whole baby bella shrooms added in! Wish I had some of that right now as a matter of fact.

  394. Courtney Kay says:

    I am a sucker for the Orange Cranberry Muffins. So much so that sometimes I make them twice a week, especially now when its super easy to find cranberries! Seriously, these muffins=love.

  395. Babette says:

    The avocado tea sandwiches are really tasty and easy to make.

  396. Lisa says:

    Spaghetti-nos. Been craving healthy vegan spaghettios for years and now Isa’s gone and created a recipe for it that feels like cheating, but it’s not; it’s just too ingenious for words.

  397. Rhea Parsons says:

    OMG! Oven Baked Onion Rings are my favorite from the blog and from “Appetite for Reduction.”

  398. Maggie says:

    I went out and bought a food processor just so I could make these scalloped potatoes:

    And it was worth it — BUT, the real star was the eggplant bacon

    Super easy, amazingly delicious. It’s my new favorite thing, I can’t wait to put it on a pizza with some marinated artichoke hearts.

  399. Crystal says:

    I can’t stop thinking about the maple pecan pie. I’m going to make a special trip to get tofu for it!

  400. Sarah says:

    So much goodness to choose from, but I most recently made and throroughly enjoyed the Orange Ginger Baked Tofu… it really is the perfect thing to quell my Chinese take-out (of which there is none of the edible variety where I live) cravings. SO GOOD!

  401. Julie Barfield says:

    My favorite recipe from the PPK Blog is the Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf! Although I haven’t made it yet, I know I am going to love it!

  402. Jessie N says:

    I loved the Chana Masala!
    But I’m definatley going to try the caramel apples this week :)

  403. Joy says:

    Chickpea picatta. Ohhh yeahhhhh.

  404. Eve says:

    Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles! Although it’s hard to pick just one. Isa’s recipes are always so good, I suspect she has secret magic powers.

  405. kelsea says:

    I can’t wait to try out the Maple Pecan Pie ( for Thanksgiving with my non-veg family. Yum!

  406. Stephanie says:

    Although I must admit those peanut butter caramel apples have me salivating, my favorite recipe is the best pumpkin muffins ever!!!!! They’re so moist, I make them for my office a couple of times a year- on demand!

  407. Ruby says:

    The berry creme tarts with cocoa olive oil crust!!! I made these for my friend’s birthday and actually went out and bought tart pans just so that I could make them. They were amazing, beautiful, and actually pretty easy to put together.

  408. Kate says:

    Well considering that I just made and loved the Okra Gumbo With Chickpeas & Kidney Beans, I’ll vote for that at the moment! But everyone is right, there are just too many great ones to choose from (and considering I usually consider my favorite food to be “cookies,” I might also have to choose the mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles)… :)

  409. Nadine says:

    Oh, I so wanna win this! For my favorite blog recipe, I’m gonna say the cucumber avocado tea sandwiches with mint. My grandmother loves cucumber-mayo tea sandwiches, and I now have a vegan version to eat! (and think of her. <3 you, Grandma!)

  410. Patrick McNearney says:

    I love her Snobby Joes. They think they’re better than everyone else. Period.

  411. Wendy Moniuk says:

    Eggplant bacon for sure.

  412. Lisa says:

    The peanut butter chocolate pillows!
    I make them for almost every get together and everyone always looks forward to them. :)

  413. Kim says:

    I haven’t made it yet, but I’m really wanting to try the Spaghetti-Nos with Mini Lentil Meatballs. Brings back my childhood.

  414. Catlyn L says:

    My favorite is the Old Fashioned Chocolate Pudding Pie, its to die for! SO amazing! :-)

  415. Kyle says:

    Seitan Portobello Stroganoff, although it was a tough choice.

  416. Susan Kelley says:

    Pumpkin waffles– so incredibly autumnal and cozy.

  417. Jesse D. says:

    Definitely the chana masala:

    I’m making some tonight!

  418. Rachel says:

    First off, my absolute favorite thing to bake in the world is pie. And, I firmly believe that it is crucial to speak only with a Southern twang in the presence of pie (particularly pecan or sweet potato). That said, I’m a chocoholic and Isa’s peanut butter pillows are to die for (literally, I might have died from eating so many)…

  419. Renee says:

    My fav is the salted caramel chocolate pie from the book samler i got at DC vegfest

  420. nik says:

    Vegan Cornbread…it always always makes me happy. :)

  421. Heather says:

    Do I really have to limit myself to just one??? The chocolate pumpkin loaf that she just put up is a new favorite, but I LOVE that broccoli stirfry with cashews that she posted when she talked about using the cast iron skillet… YUM! So many good recipes. My husband made a fantastic curry from her website once, too. My birthday is coming up, so maybe I’ll request him to do that again… :)

  422. Therese says:

    Spaghetti-Nos with Lentil Meatballs!

  423. Hands down its the Butternut Rancheros. Some serious tastiness going on here.

  424. I don’t know if it is on her site, but I love her cucumber-cashew dip in Veganomicon. I made it twice in 24 hours…delicious!

  425. Christie Nelson says:

    I love her Sloppy Lentils!!!!

  426. Vicki McDermott says:

    It is definitely too hard to choose one, but I’m going to say the Triple Apple Cider Bundt Cake because I still have some sitting on my counter :)

  427. Maggie says:

    I’m so obsessed with PPK, I can never remember which recipes are from the books are which ones are only on the blog, but I know that the new chocolate pumpkin loaf that just came out is only on the blog. SO GOOD. Defo new favorite.

  428. joyfulgirl says:

    I love the quiche! I’ve made that a million times.

    P.S. I love that this is tagged with “pretty hair”

  429. Debbie Becker says:

    Mushroom & Cannellini Paprikas

  430. Jordan says:

    i love the tofu omelets!

  431. Amy says:

    I love the tofu scramble, it is a family favorite. I usually make a make four to five blocks of tofu scrambled at a time

  432. veganlisa says:

    The Best Pumpkin Muffins are the best!!!

  433. oh my.. the chickpea cutlets, banana bread.. gingerbread muffins..pumpkin waffles…. and there r too many more!

  434. Lesley says:

    Mac & Shews! It was like revisiting my delicious macaroni filled childhood without the unfortunate bowl haircut and banana-seated bicycle.

  435. Whitney says:

    It’s a tough call for me between the Pear Frangipane Tart (I absolutely love pear deserts) and the Mushroom Hot Pot. Soups have been sounding really good with the cool fall weather, so I’d say the Mushroom Hot Pot is winning at the moment.

  436. Alexandra Unruh says:

    I love the “Best Pumpkin Muffins”.. so spicy and delicious!

  437. Joanne says:

    From the time VWAV first hit the bookstores, my favorite has been the Pumpkin Waffles. I double the recipe and freeze for future pure comfort food in the morning. I like to top with fresh berries. The house smells wonderful for hours afterward. Never met anyone that did not like them. Recipe is on the blog.

  438. Isabelle Picard says:

    Definitely, the double-batch chickpea cutlets, served with the lemony herbed potatoes from Veganomicon. My husband is a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy yet he insists that I make this meal (with leftovers) once a week. Victory!

  439. I just looked at the PPK blog again and saw Isa’s recipe for Peanut Butter Caramel Apples and can’t wait to try them. I love caramel apples but don’t want to eat the sugar. I’ll make them with date syrup (recipe at instead of brown rice syrup.

  440. Michelle m says:

    Olive lentil burgers made going Vegan easy…I love her

  441. Katie Mae says:

    I usually combine the chickpea cutlets with the picatta sauce from chickpea picatta all over mashed potatoes! Maybe i’ll make some right now!

  442. Orest Saczyk says:

    I have yet to make an Isa recipe that wasn’t fantastic. Favourites include Mac ‘n ‘Shews and Tempeh Helper but my all time favourite is Spaghetti No’s with Mini Lentil Meatballs. Isa rocks!!!!!

  443. Soozle says:

    I LOVE the Cashew Vegetable Korma!

  444. Isla says:

    I have just seen the photo of the peanut butter caramel apples and I KNOW without even making them yet that they will be my favourites…

  445. Stephanie says:

    The Peanut Butter Blondies are delicious and they are a huge hit with my dad.

  446. Shannon says:

    Scrambled Tofu Revisited-I’m a brand new vegan and this is so easy and yummy. I have everyone, even the omnivorous faction, eating it!

  447. Liz Smith says:

    The basic Scrambled Tofu because even my omni husband asks for it, and it is a great foundation recipe to use up the produce you have on hand!

  448. Brandy says:

    well, it’s from the veganomicon cookbook, but the chewy chocolate raspberry cookies! they are super easy to make, and we’ve made at least 10 different varieties. they’re my cookie jar go to filler.

  449. Erin says:

    scrambled tofu

  450. supercarrot says:

    chickpea cutlets!!!!

  451. teddy says:

    mac and cheese w/ sauerkraut!!!

  452. Karen says:

    My whole family loves the peanut butter caramel apples! We are having them with popcorn and apple cider for our Halloween party.

  453. Kayla says:

    I love the oatmeal peanut butter cookies!
    The Eggplant Potato Moussaka with Pine Nut Cream is pretty spiffy too.

  454. Christine says:

    Wow, what a great give away!

    There’s not a whole lot I DON’T love over at the PPK, but I have to say, making the tofu omelets on my days off is one of the things I most look forward to. So delicious!

  455. Susan Morgaine Stanley says:

    I definitely have to go with the scrambled tofu. I never make it for breakfast, but for dinner when my hubby, not a veg in any way, is away on business. This recipe is so versatile – love it!!

  456. Fenice says:

    So many to choose from — how can I pick a favourite? I’ll just choose the last one I made: Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows. Every time I make these, I’m astonished by how good they are. Dark-chocolate-peanut-butter-bliss!

  457. Becca says:

    Scalloped potatoes and eggplant bacon!

  458. Zenimue says:

    Isa’s Fronch Toast is tantalizing & simple <3 luv luv it w/ some Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter spread on top! Tried some other recipes that turn out soggy but this 1 always turns out perfect probably why I make it again and again.

  459. Dan K. says:

    I loved the “Pesto Soup with Gnocchi, Beans & Greens”. My girl friend and I made it together and couldn’t stop eating! Our non-vegan friend also nommed the soup and raved! Love you Isa!

  460. Jillian says:

    Chana Masala! Yum yum yum!

  461. Helen says:

    Well, since I can’t find my copy of Vegan with a Vengeance, I’ve been relying heavily on Fronch Toast. But I want to make everyone else’s favorites now!

  462. Robyn says:

    Peanut butter blondies!!! Nommmmm!!!

  463. Diana Disimone says:

    I am ever so excited for this cookbook to come out! Ever since Pushing Daisies I’ve been fascinated by the simple, delicious, beauty that is a finely made pie. Anyways, I’ve tried many PPK recipes but the one I go back to again and again is the “Just Chocolate Cake”. Thanks for everything Isa and PPK, keep up the great work!

  464. Ann Jacob says:

    Pumpkin Muffins. There is a story behind it when I moved couldn’t find my Vegan with a Vengeance I was freaking out I knew the recipe by heart but too tired to think…looked online…ahhh happiness, Yes so many fantastic recipes but these….can’t beat them!

  465. Erica Heller says:

    I haven’t tried them yet, but I know the caramel apples will be my favorite. One of the things I’ve missed the most!

  466. Heather says:

    Tie between Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles (which I made two days ago) and Super Moist Pumpkin Bread (which is beyond delicious!). Almost everything I have tried from PPK has turned out great. I see that you posted a new recipe for Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf… I know what I will be making tomorrow.

  467. Jennifer N says:

    I just looooove curry! I can not eat enough of Broccoli Curry Udon!

  468. Sarah F says:

    Cozy Collards and Tempeh. PURE YUM!

  469. Diane says:

    Double Batch Chickpea Cutlets – love them!

  470. Jennifer N says:

    Broccoli Curry Udon! Curry! Noodles! Broccoli! What is not to love?!

  471. Anna says:

    gotta love the peanut butter chocolate pillows!!!

  472. BigSis says:

    I’ve baked the heck outta those Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles. They’ve been a big hit at the charity bake sale we put together every year, and they’ll be back again in force for this year’s sale!

  473. Sara says:

    I love the tempeh sausage crumbles. I just made gluten free sausage gravy with them-yum!

  474. Katie says:

    hoo boy, this is a toughie. i’d have to go with the pumpkin oatmeal cookies. they’re my go-to recipe for any special shindig! soft, chewy, and pumpkiny…how could you go wrong with that?

  475. Candice says:

    So simple but so good I love their fluffy mashed potatoes with their wasabi powder and kale variations!

  476. Lindsey says:

    Chipotle Chili with Sweet Potato & Brussel Sprouts. So delicious!

  477. Eva says:

    Red lentil Thai chili!! nom nom nom

  478. Summer says:

    I’m currently in love with the chocolate pumpkin loaf, but I’m sure my favorite will change next week. I just saw the vegan omelet recipe, and I’m bout to hit that.

  479. Christine says:

    I like the lentil meatballs (from the lentil meatballs and spaghetti o’s knockoff). They are so delicious and easy to make.

  480. Evebo says:

    Of course it’s almost impossible to choose, but the mac and shews make my eyes roll back in my head! So good.

  481. Angela says:

    Ooooh…Chickpea Picatta is definitely my favorite! I always make a double batch and it never lasts long.

  482. Lauren says:

    I love everything! Honestly! Some favorites have been the butternut squash rancheros and pumpkin oatmeal cookies! I just made the vegan pumpkin waffles this weekend for brunch for the new dude 😉 Isa, you are so amazing! I always make your stuff for friends…but always credit you 😀 I would like to think I can make a vegan believer out of them…with your help, of course! 😉

  483. Polly says:

    Fronch Toast –delicious!

  484. Ariella says:

    Matrioshka eggnog–anything that sneaks in avocados is obviously awesome, and last winter the people I served it to were blown away by its deliciousness. Of course the glasses are just too cute. I now own 2 sets of them ( 2 separate friends bought me the same set of glasses for my birthday!)

  485. Erin says:

    It’s hard to choose, but the banana bread is one of my favorite regular go-to recipes :)

  486. Becky H says:

    the Chickpea Piccatta never fails!

    Vegan Pecan Pie!
    I am such a pie fanatic and when I lived in Asheville, I fell in LOVE with the Vegan Southern Food there, but also, with all the great pies there (that were not Vegan). My fav pie is Pecan Pie, I cannot get enough of it, so when I saw this recipe on the PPK website, I dedicated an entire weekend to mastering it. It was not only the best vegan pie I have ever had, but it was the best pean pie I ever had. Can’t wait to make more Vegan pies!

  488. Trista says:

    It might be lame but I love the chocolate chip cookies, and the raspberry choc chip bars (are they posted here??) — I haven’t been able to cook for a while, but I love everything of hers I try! So excited about the pie cookbook!

  489. Sabrina O. says:

    I always go for the chocolate chip cookies despite all the other wonderful recipes.

  490. Annie says:

    I am an Isa fangirl all the way!!!
    I have so many favorites on the PPK site (and in all the books!), but the one I made most recently that just rocks my socks is the Black Beans and Quinoa with Chipotle Raspberry Sauce. holy moly.

  491. Evan ODell says:

    My favorite recipe is the tofu omelets. Mmm! Good stuff!

  492. Amy says:

    What a super rad giveaway!! My favorite recipe on the PPK blog is Isa’s Spaghetti-Nos with Mini Lentil Meatballs – fun and delicious!!

  493. Thom H. says:

    Eggplant bacon for the win! I must own that apron!!!!

  494. Amy says:

    The chocolate chip cookies are great! Can’t wait to try the caramel apples that were just posted tho. My son has been asking to make them so perfect timing! Isa is my favorite cookbook author!!

  495. B'klynHeart says:

    PPK Chana Masala. I make it while humming a happy tune. I eat each bite in slow, luxurious reminiscent of an old Herbal Essence commercial. This even happens with the leftovers. I dream about making more of it. I lament once the last of it is gone. Then I put more chickpeas on to soak, and the circle of PPK Chana Masala continues…

    One of many recipes that have me being a solid Isa fan.

  496. Lisa says:

    I love love love the herbed whole wheat drop biscuits. I made them last Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit. Definitely on the menu again this year!

  497. Alison says:

    I just made the pumpkin chocolate loaf, and it is amazing. It’s currently my favorite.

  498. Jessica says:

    So hard to choose! I have to go with Fronch Toast, because it impressed my family who were suspicious of vegan french toast. With a little cinnamon and vanilla added it was as huge hit.

  499. Niru says:

    Raspberry jam swirl crumbcake, among many many others!

  500. Laura J. Veligor says:

    My favorite recipe on the Post Punk Kitchen website is the Pumpkin Pie Brownie! They are delicious every time I make them.

  501. Jolene says:

    Love, love, love the Oatmeal Peanut butter cookies – I tell myself they’re really, really good for me so that I can just keep eating them :-)

  502. Fletcher says:

    My absolute favorite is the Portland Porch Lettuce Wraps. I made them for company and they were a huge hit!

  503. Kelly R says:

    The Banh Mi Salad.

  504. Beth says:

    I absolutely love the Quinoa Salad with Black Beans and Mango. I take it to every get-together I go to, and it’s always a hit, with veg*ns and omnis alike. I even get repeat requests to bring it.

  505. Kevin says:

    Love those chickpea cutlets!

  506. Alex says:

    So glad I caught this (I am totally not supposed to be doing homework) I love pie!
    Favourite PPK recipe? That’s hard but I guess I’ll have to go with either the maple pecan pie or the olive lentil burgers. Probably the burgers, I REALLY like olives…

  507. Tanya says:

    I love the ppk! I think there are way too many recipes to choose from. Some of the highlights are chickpea piccatta and the triple apple bunt cake. I need this book as i am currently terrrible at makubg pie.

  508. Thea says:

    So far, my favorite recipe that I’ve actually made is the Chickpea Cutlets. That being said, there are plenty of PPK recipes that I can’t wait to test out! The Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf and Peanut Butter Caramel Apples are at the top of my list!

  509. Laura A says:

    The eggplant potato moussaka with pine nut cream – yum!

  510. Corrin Radd says:

    I just made the potato gratin with eggplant bacon and my household loved it.

  511. jun says:

    great giveaway!
    I haven’t made it yet but I can’t wait to try the old fashioned chocolate pudding pie:)

  512. boychucker says:

    There are so many I need to try but haven’t gotten around to yet, but I am super in love with the Quinoa, White Bean and Kale Stew. It’s delightfully filling, but also healthy enough that you know you can indulge in pie afterward!

  513. Janine C says:

    Punk rock cookie jar mix! Thought that was such a cute idea! I have it to my cousin as a start of the semester in college gift and she loved it :)

  514. Elizabeth says:

    It’s very, very difficult for me to pick just one, but I think I’m going to go with the Swiss Chard Frittata. I have impressed a number of non-vegans with this recipe, and it’s a personal favorite of mine.

  515. Rebecca says:

    I don’t even know how to choose my favorite recipe from the PPK blog! I loved the recently posted Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf (in cupcake/muffin form). My first recipe was the Portland Porch Lettuce Wraps, and really got me addicted to the PPK. I also adore (and have made several times) the Olive Lentil Burgers and the Black Beans and Quinoa with Chipotle Raspberry Sauce. Everything is so yummy and convinced me to take the leap from vegetarianism to veganism.

  516. Laurel says:

    Pick one? I can’t even pick just one of her books. Um, I think the one I make most is the Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookies but I think that Chocolate Pumpkin loaf may come in a close second or maybe the Pear Frangipanne Tart or the… I tell you NOT FAIR!!!

  517. Kat says:

    Eggplant Bacon!! Smoky chewy salty goodness right there… drool.

  518. Tara Joyce Whipp says:

    pumpkin bread?! or the rice/cabbage soup. Or both??

  519. Michelle says:

    The chocolate pumpkin loaf looks delish!

  520. Naomi says:

    I love the Seitan Portobello Stroganoff. So delish. It’s my favorite comfort food!

  521. Lesley says:

    I could eat the blackened scrambled tofu and garlicky grits every day.

  522. Sara says:

    The pumpkin bread is great for bread, muffins, whatever.

  523. Rachel says:

    My favorite is the Milano cookie recipe! Amazing!

  524. Kim says:

    My favorite recipe from the PPK blog is probably the Chocolate Chip Cookies, though there are tons of other recipes I love. Thanks for doing such a great giveaway!

  525. Andrea Bravo says:

    I am the biggest channa masala fan and this recipe is hands down my fav! this is my potluck staple!

  526. katie says:

    Whole Wheat Fig Bars… sweet lord, they are delicious!! 😀

  527. Kendall says:

    Mexican hot chocolate snickerdoodles are the best!

  528. Stephanie says:

    Right now the pumpkin bread!!!!!

  529. Lauren McDade says:

    Chocolate. Pumpkin. Loaf. Stat!!!

  530. dawn says:

    Me please! I would love to win! Of course – I already have Vegan Pie in the Sky, but it would make an excellent Xmas gift!

  531. dawn says:

    Duh … did I forget to mention how much I love the Voluptuous Pumpkin Pie!

  532. katy sparrow says:

    My fav PPK recipe is Garlicky Thyme Tempeh..I tuck it into my sandwiches all da thyme. And I just haven’t had a fulfilling month without baking a batch of the best ever Oatmeal Peanutbutter Cookies.

  533. Elena says:

    So hard to pick, but the coffee cake is always a winner.

  534. Asa says:

    Chocolate cupcakes!

  535. veggiejess says:

    What a fantastic giveaway! My very favorite is tofu omelets.

  536. Carrot Cake Pancakes, baby!

  537. Leah says:

    I think I ate the pesto soup about 15 times in the month of August. If you have any pesto on hand, DO IT.

  538. Dennis says:

    the chana masala is awesome!

  539. 553 comments, wow. People sure their pie!

  540. Amanda Hanson says:

    Uff-da…so hard to choose….but I’m going to go with the Brown Sugar Peach Muffins!! So delish!! :)

  541. Allison Haight says:

    Mushroom Hot Pot! Perfect for all the fungi my foraging hubby just brought home!

  542. Alexa R says:

    Raspberry Jam Swirl Crumbcake 😀

  543. Rachel says:

    The eggplant bacon!! It’s so good. I put it on everything.

  544. Just last week an incredible chocolate pumpkin bread was posted, it may be my favorite.

  545. Maddy says:

    My favorite recipe from the blog is the peanut butter chocolate pillows. I also JUST made the pumpkin chocolate loaf. Came outta the oven an hour ago!

  546. Michelle Meehan says:

    I LOVE Caribbean Curry Black Eye Peas with Plantains. They are so good I can eat the whole pot. I was raised with Pierogies so I definetly want to try Potato Pierogi with Carmalized Onion. I just recently bought a Pierogi maker. Its a tool to help form the Pierogi once you make the dough. I found I was not very good at rolling dough so I will have to practice. I had made fried cabbage pierogis and they were yum!!

  547. Kylie says:

    I am absolutely IN LOVE with the new chocolate pumpkin loaf! I will be making it a million times between now and till eternity!

  548. Rachel says:

    I loved the cashew vegetable korma and also make the ginger chocolate chunk scones as my go-to scone recipe!

  549. Cheryl Johnson says:

    I can’t wait to try the caramel apples, but my favorite is the Green tea cupcakes. I used to work in a tea shop and everyone RAVED!!!

  550. Melissa says:

    The OMG Oven Baked Rings!!

  551. jen says:

    It keeps changing because they are all so good. Right now, it’s the chick pea cutlets. :o)

  552. MB says:

    Hands down the Red Lentil Thai Chili

  553. doe mora says:

    oh, i hope this one is on the website as well as in veganomicon- the lower fat banana bread– recently served to part of the ohio state band (a big deal!)!

  554. Beth M. says:

    I LOVE PPK recipes!!! The Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows from Vegan Cookies Take Over the World are SOOO good and I’m itching to try the PB Caramel Apples they just posted as well as the Fruit Hand Pies from the new Vegan Pie cookbook!

  555. Sara P. says:

    I am a huge fan of the Chilled Golden Beet & Ginger Soup

  556. Michele says:

    Pie Pie Pie Pie Pie……….Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Pie!

  557. Stephanie Friedman says:

    Lemon bars! No wait…peanut butter chocolate pillows! No wait…coconut lime cupcakes! And then there’s the simple seitan-making method that saved my life…

  558. Alyson says:

    Spaghetti-Nos with lentil meatballs are amazing!! I was eating the sauce directly out of the tupperware and my carnivorous friends loved the lentil meatballs.

  559. Amberle says:

    The Chana Masala is easily my favorite although it is nowhere close to easy to pick only one of these recipes. I’m a sucker for Indian food and love that she has spent so much time honing the flavors of this recipe herself. It turns out amazingly!

  560. Sietra says:

    I eat way too many peanut butter bloodies, and the eggplant bacon really hits the spot.

  561. I love the carrot bisque recipe! It’s the perfect fall soup! I love making it all year round though! :)

  562. Angela says:

    I’ll add myself to the long list of Best Pumpkin Muffin fans. They are brilliant!

  563. I’ve wanted to try the eggnog posted on the ppk blog for the last year! I haven’t gotten around to it yet, but maybe this year. And it would be perfect with a slice of pie!

  564. Sheryl says:

    Rustic Winter Stew with Polenta….although the Best Pumpkin Muffins are the best for a reason. :) So good!

  565. Joshua says:

    Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles again and again.
    The most winningest cookie ever! So many fans of these cookies when I bake them. The first time I made them with some older cayenne, they weren’t too bad on the heat scale, but then I made them another time with some freshly ground cayenne and it was almost over for everyone who sampled them. We rebounded from the occasion and whipped up another batch.

  566. Sara says:

    a classic – Scrambled Tofu! that, plus herbed whole wheat biscuits and smoked almond gravy from Vegan Brunch make a great breakfast!

  567. Salt-and-Pepper Tofu for the win. Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease.

  568. Carrie H. says:

    Pumpkin french toast is awesome!

  569. Beardyface says:

    It’s an oldie but a goodie. I love the chick pea cutlets :)

  570. Hannah Maharrey says:

    Hands down the Pumpkin Muffins. I have made them for years and everybody loves them. Even my deep South, Mississippi family who swear that you can’t “really bake” without milk, butter, and eggs. Isa’s pumpkin muffins made them rethink their entire culinary lives.


  571. Jennifer says:


  572. Bethany says:

    I love the chickpea soup with cabbage and the sanctuary dip. I can’t wait to try the pierogies (i deeply miss them!)

  573. Jen E says:

    Ok this is really hard, because she has so many yummy ones! My all time favorite though is the chickpea cutlets and 2nd is the pumpkin pie brownies.That new chocolate pumpkin loaf looks like a winner to me too! Thanks for offering the prizes :)

  574. Erica says:

    Without a doubt, the OMG Oven Baked Onion Rings. This was the recipe that convinced me to buy “Appetite for Reduction” (and thanks for showing the love to us Canadians!).

  575. Vicki says:

    Eggplant bacon!!

  576. Jennifer S. says:

    My absolute favorite recipe on the PPK is the ‘Quinoa, White Bean and Kale Stew,’ which can also be found in “Appetite for Reduction.” It is SO GOOD served with a warm piece of homemade bread with Earth Balance on a chilly fall day! YUM!!!!!

    Thank you for the giveaway!!!!!

  577. Ben H. says:

    I really enjoy the snobby joes. It’s the best “sloppy joe” substitute I’ve had and I have to admit I wasn’t a big fan of lentils before this recipe.

  578. Jessie says:

    Chocolate pumpkin loaf. ‘Nuff said.

  579. Dawn says:

    I had no use for pureed pumpkin in my life until the scrumptious Pumpkin Pie Brownies.

  580. oh man – tough to pick A favorite, but I think I have to go with the BBQ Seitan and Broccoli…. so good and the pics I posted on my blog made my omni friends want some!

  581. Natasha says:

    Definitely the maple pecan pie! Loved by non-vegans and vegans alike!

  582. Chuck says:

    The oven baked onion rings! I’m going to have to make those today after seeing that again.

  583. Bonnie says:

    Broccoli Curry Udon was my first and favorite recipe I made from your site! Even just typing it now, my mouth is drooling remembering some of my favorite flavours coming together in one pot!

  584. Kristen says:

    Lemon Garlic Fava Beans & Mushrooms with marinated tempeh is so good. Might have to make that again this week now that I can’t stop thinking about it.

  585. Ashley F. says:

    I absolutely love the Snobby Joes! They are a huge hit with my whole family!

  586. susie says:

    It’s a delicious 3-way tie between the Baked Onion Rings, the Chocolate Pumpkin loaf and (does this count? It’s in Appetite for Reduction) the spinach lasagna. oh boy! xo susie

  587. Kathryn says:

    As an eternal fan of fried potatoes, I had to go with the latkes. Plus, they’re easy and the ingredients are easy to get (especially if you make it with bread crumbs, but I can get matzoh meal here too).

    Also, I’m in Canada. So thanks for that. :)

  588. Rita says:

    “THE TOFU SCRAMBLE” I’ve tried many scrambles but this one is clearly the winner. Now I need to make some yummy pie to go along with it (hint,hint)

  589. Carla says:

    Eggplant bacon! I’m not an eggplant fan so often look for ways to make it palatable for me. This way is.

  590. Sarah P says:

    The raw strawberry cheesecake! It is so delicious and rich.

  591. Tammy says:

    I enjoy the avocado potato salad. Love potatoes and their versatility!

  592. Stephanie says:

    Mmmm, I love the rad whip recipe! It takes my desserts to a whole new level in presentation.

  593. Trista says:

    It’s 8:25…hope I’m not too late to comment. I don’t have a favorite recipe yet…I’m quite amazed at what people have been able to do during the work week–not only amazing dishes (like the spinach pancakes featured here), but amazing photography as well. Feeling like a slacker…

  594. Jenny says:

    The caesar dressing! I really liked the mango BBQ beans from AFR. I really want the pie cookbook!

  595. Allison Crowe says:

    Hmmmm.. definitely Just Chocolate Cake with the gooey chocolate ganache! I made that for my friends b-day and it was DELICIOUS!! (i think i may be too late with this – but hey, here’s trying) haha
