The Official Viva Vegan! recipe review (to be updated).

New book by Terry! Very excited. It does look slightly more complicated than I'm used to, with the longer techniques, but I'm ready for a challenge!

A Few Essential Latino Vegan Recipes
Annatto infused oil
I was thinking that if I didn't notice a difference with the oil, I probably wouldn't do this again because it's a bit of a process; mainly because of the staining, and the fact that it's oil, so it sticks to everything. I doubled the recipe, because I wanted to use the bottle for the finished oil. It was a beautiful dark dark orange. I loved it in the rice! I'll do it again sometime. (AC)
Very purdy color! It made my rice purdy as well. I do agree with AC that it stains things so be careful but I thought it was very easy to make. (amymylove)
Basic onion pepper sofrito
I made a quarter of this recipe because I didn't want a ton, and it worked out pretty well (the same time on the stove worked). I used mini bells (red, orange, yellow) and red onion, and it came out very sweet. The bell pepper flavor mellows out a lot. It's so tasty (sweet + greasy) that I'd like to eat it alone or with bread, but it feels too decadent. (fb)
Maybe I didn't dice the veggies fine enough but I had way more than 1.5 cups.  I would have blended it if my blender worked.  Doesn't look or taste like the sofrito a PR co-worker gave me one time.  Still it worked in the recipe I used it for, but now I have tons leftover.  I might freeze it because that's what my coworker does. (tweety)
I made this once... It was alright, makes a ton, and i would rather just add bell peppers, onions, and garlic to recipes instead of making this... makes too much (amymylove)
Sofrito con aji

Sofrito con cilantro and achiote

Sofrito con tomate

Sofrito with spices
I added the cumin, coriander, and paprika. Yummy! I didn't taste any on its own (can imagine what it tastes like), but it was a great addition to the Venezuelan beans. Oily, but there's no other oil in the beans. I made a portion of the recipe, but I can see how it would be good to make a big batch to have on hand. (AC)
Chorizo seitan sausages
Easy to make.  I made these to go in the Drunken Beans with Seitan Chorizo, but I had some extra sausages, so I froze them for later.  This is really convenient as long as you take the time to defrost them in the freezer before mealtime.  They have great flavor on their own...ate them sauteed in a little oil alongside Peruvian Potatoes with Spicy "Cheezy" Sauce. (kristinv)
These came out pretty soft, but not stretchy like raw gluten or anything. They're spicy, but not over the top, and go well as a fake meat in various things (so far, tofu scramble, taquitos, and pizza), and they have a pretty strong tomato flavor. (fb)
not that hard to make and very tasty.  I followed the recipe precisely.  I used the annatto-infused oil with grapeseed oil and crushed annatto seeds and used that.  (Tweety)
The taste is delicious but the texture is a bit too soft. I tried frying it in slices but I just felt like it wasn't firm enough. Anyone else have the same sentiment? (intheend)
I like them, but everyone is right about the texture - a bit softer than I would have liked, and I baked them for an extra 15 minutes trying to avoid this....I used chipotle seasoning instead of cayenne because I was out and it was extremely smoky and spicy - next time I'd try to tweek it a little to get the texture a bit firmer... (erinmonster)
Very good! I may like these even more than the chorizo from VB. (dannibazaar)
(made by oww) Delicious, really enjoyed it. (shelloid)
I agree that they were a bit soft, but they fried up nicely. I loved being able to vary the flavours and spice. Delicious! I have used it with the Potato-Kale soup (Caldo Verde). (blinknoodle)
I've made these twice now, awesome flavor, but i think they cook better if you make them into 8 sausages instead of 6... they don't cook  to the right texture in the specified time with 6 (amymylove)
Chipotle chorizo
Very good... not amazing but good enough to make again. (thirteenblackbirds)
Hot aji chorizo
This is the best seitan I've made! So good. I followed the directions using aji panca. I didn't measure the spices, and next time will add some more cayenne..or more heat. I used the annatto oil, which I love (it actually didn't stain my hands even with all the kneading). After first mixing, it really seemed to loose, so I added a bit more VWG. The measurement for the foil pieces is too big! I ripped mine in half, and that was plenty. Baked for 35, and planned to let them set until dinner, but P wanted some for lunch. They definitely didn't set out for 40 minutes, and were still warm, but great. I even liked it before sauteing (which I don't know that it needs). Flavor is good (just needs more spice), and the texture was great. P thought I bought them! Love. I think the texture might be better with the added VWG? Just a few tbs. (AC)
Steamed red seitan
I like this one better, and it might just be due to the hefty amount of ketchup in the ingredients. It's more savory and has a stronger flavor. I could eat it on its own, in a sandwich... pretty good stuff. I used it for anticuchos and saltado. (fb)
This has a "softer", less chewy texture than the seitan recipes I'm used to.  It was good, though!  And best of all, it's another easy recipe that you can prepare ahead of time and have seitan ready to go for a quick meal. (kristinv)
This was alright. I'm not a huge fan of the texture and wouldn't make it again. (intheend)
was quite pleased with how this turned out because it was very moist going into the steamer.  Like the reviewer above, it was a bit soft, but was good.  (tweety)
I read on PPK that someone else steamed it for an additional 15 minutes and that it improves the texture. I did that and I am in love with it ever since. (intheend)
Wow AMAZING!!!! I only took a bite out of one of the "steaks" since I am saving these puppies for empanadas tomorrow but WOW! One of my new favorite ways to make seitan!!! The seitan was a bit different texture-wise as I was kneading it but it worked out. TRY THESE!!! (amymylove)
very good seitan. i can't really say a whole lot b/c it was my first time making seitan, but i was really pleased with the result. i think i added more wheat gluten than it called for, and i steamed it for like 45 minutes (based on the suggestion above).   (thirteenblackbirds)
good, a tad bit on the soft side - very similar to the chorizo sausages, just less spicy....I halved the recipe, thinking it was going to make a ton and it really didn't - next time I'll make the full batch. (erinmonster)
This tastes great.  I steamed it for 45 minutes, per the reviews above, and the texture is good.  It's still extra moist though.  It was so wet while I was mixing it, I thought maybe I measured something wrong. (veggydog)
Made it because Amy made me, (from all her delicious looking pics on her blog,) Yep, its awesome....I let mine totally cool overnight in the fridge, and the texture was firm, not at all spongy, thank goodness!  I even made a double batch, used some for tacos, and some as breaded veggie nuggets. i steamed for about an hour, because I am lazy and I HATE spongy seitan, and it was perfect! (babysgotsauce)
Glad I finally had everything to make this, barely. I had to 1/2 the recipe due to low VWG, and had to use regular flour. I was afraid it wouldn't come out! It looked like it would be too bready, and too wet, but it came together. I tried to follow the directions closely. The flavor is great, and the color is beautiful. I also steamed for 45 minutes, and baked in the foil for another 15. It's 100% better after chilling, so don't skip that. Great as is, great fried and crispy. (AC)
I was very concerned when I made the dough as it was super super wet, but I persevered anyway.  Once cooked I loved the flavour and soft texture.  However on cooking it up in a sauce I found it did break down quite a bit.  I will be making this again but will either add more gluten flour, wrap it tighter or cook for longer to firm it up a bit.  I liked the addition of cumin, as I've never added that to seitan before. (shelloid)
These were okay. They did the job just fine, but by no means my favorite way to do seitan. I'll be trying the white ones soon, though. (andini)
I am reluctant to say that I did not like this at all. The texture was so awful to the extent that it nauseated me. Maybe I'll try making it again, increasing the steaming time. But I threw out this batch. Just plain...bad.  Then again, I'm not really big on seitan, I mush prefer tofu and tempeh. (dannibazaar)
Steamed white seitan
Eh, it's cool I guess. I think it could use a little more seasoning... maybe some soy sauce as the liquid, more herbs? It has a bit of a subtle flavor that, when used in another dish, it pretty much gets covered up. It gets pretty firm by being steamed, but I still prefer baking seitan in a water bath; steaming makes it a little gummier. I do appreciate, though, that it's a functional, quicker recipe, and doesn't use a partial can of beans like the sausages from Vegan Brunch.  (fb)
This is my favorite seitan!! It is now my go-to recipe. (intheend)
Amazing seitan but I like the Red Seitan better. (amymylove)
tastes like seitan....I made 2 big loaves instead of 4 and steamed for 45 minutes - this was firmer than the red seitan, and I almost think I liked it better.... (erinmonster)
My head must have been somewhere else during cooking time, because I pretty much messed this up. It actually came out pretty tasty, but I didn't adequately measure ingredients (which I don't feel comfortable doing with seitan), I didn't have the time to let it chill after steaming, and it ended up almost burning in my pot. That being said, it was easy to put together, and the flavor is pretty good. Texture will probably get better overnight, but it's not my favorite. The steaming method is not my favorite because I don't have a good steamer, and I never understand why she calls for such huge foil pieces! (AC)
Salsas and Condiementos
Cashew crema
This was okay on it's own but when it's on top of something it blends right in.  (intheend)
Ughhh this was so disgusting... I wonder if I did something wrong?!? I took a little taste and ended up throwing the whole thing out. Yuck! (amymylove)
Chimichurri sauce with smoked paprika
holy moses this is garlicky. It's a very strongly-flavored sauce all over, and very thick. I like everything in it (cilantro, garlic, parsley, etc), so it's good, and I don't think you need a whole lot to flavor something.  (fb)
I cut down on the garlic, because we just had the green sauce with is also really garlicky. I think I used 3 cloves..so still pretty garlicky. We don't normally like fresh parsley, but it works with everything else here. I don't have smoked paprika, so I used regular + a drop of liquid smoke. I added more red pepper flakes, because I wanted to use this in a soup to spice it up. I don't know that I would want to dip something in this (maybe), but it worked so well in a bean and veggie soup that I made. I thinned it down quite a bit with water. (AC)
Chocolate chile mole sauce (A oaxacan wannabe)
Very time consuming but it makes a lot so it's worth it. I grew up eating black mole imported from Mexico so I'm really picky. I liked this recipe and would make it again but I wouldn't say it's my favorite. But if you're not as discriminating as I am, I think you would really dig this. (intheend)
I didn't really like this. I'm pretty sure I got the proportions right, but I felt that there was (gasp!) too much chocolate. Not necessarily too much cocoa flavor, but it was too sweet. I used the Abuelita chocolate, so perhaps other brands are less sugary. Still, I would rather just use cocoa and then sweeten as needed. Also, this recipe makes a boatload of sauce.  (fb)
Classic roasted tomatillo salsa
Pretty good. Sweet-sour, easy to adjust spiciness. I made this with large tomatillos, but I probably would have preferred the small type... the large ones have a fruitier taste. Good recipe, but nothing too "omg!" about it. (fb)
Be careful with this one...you really need a broiler-safe pan.  I'm still trying to scrub all the burnt tomatillo juices off of one of my pans.  The salsa tasted really fresh and green, probably due to the cilantro.  Very yummy! (kristinv)
This is pretty good though not spicy enough for me (I used 3 jalapenos with seeds), I swear it tastes like it has lime in it but I guess that's how tamatillos taste? I give it 4 out of 5 stars but I probably won't hassle with making it again. (amymylove)
Roasted tomato salsa

Creamy avocado tomato salsa (Venezuelan guasacaca)
Yummy, yummy, yummy. This is not too, too different from a guacamole, but it's delicious. I didn't mash mine a lot, because I wanted to really taste the avocado. I love all the flavors, and used sriracha for the hot sauce. I used lemon juice and some white wine vinegar. No parsley, but cilantro. Will make again. (AC)
This is a bit closer to what I think of as guacamole. It's pretty well-balanced, so though I usually eat avocado-type things with salsa, it didn't need it here. (fb)
I really wasn't expecting much, other than a guacamole type salsa, but OMG the sum of these ingredients is equal to is parts because it came together so freakin' deliciously.  I used lime juice and not vinegar and cut back on the onions some and used cilantro and not parsley and used tabasco for the hot optional hot sauce.  Loved this. (tweety)
Fresh tomato salsa with roasted chiles

Dried chile salsa

Winter salsa

Green onion salsa
I was afraid this would be too oniony. I mean, look at the name. But it wasn't. Instead, it was waaay too vinegary. I should have added vinegar/lime to taste, but oh well. Definitely needs to be combined with guacamole or something mild, or may otherwise be ulcer-inducing.  (fb)
Green tomatillo sauce
A pretty regular tomatillo sauce. I thought it might be too watery, but it worked fine for the purposes of the potato-chickpea enchiladas. It would probably need to have less water to be a salsa or something though. (fb)
I usually make my own tomatillo sauce and decided to try this one. I did not like it at all but my family did- so I guess it was just me. (intheend)
I am in love with this stuff. I skip some steps though. I just boil the tamatillos and throw them in the blender with the rest of the ingredients (I did this the first time and the second time I looked at the recipe I realized I had missed steps) and it tastes perfect to me... Amazing as salsa as well! (amymylove)
Habanero melon papaya salsa

Peanut sauce (Salsa de mani)
For the "milk" I used some leftover light coconut milk, and I added some salt and cayenne. It came out pretty greasy... ok, it's peanut sauce, but the coconut milk might have actually been a bad idea, and maybe I should have avoided using the oil called for in prepping the onions. But, I liked it (just very heavy - it's thick!).  (fb)
this was just okay. i thought it mainly tasted too much of cumin and needed more flavors. i've only ever had asian-style peanut sauces, and maybe they are just my preference. i won't make this again. (thirteenblackbirds)
Pickled red onions
These are pretty good, kind of citrus-y flavored and not really onion-y. I have tried them on a sandwich and they were a good edition. I can't wait to try them as a taco topping. I also had them on nachos (with some Red Seitan and vegweb's melty cheese) and they were yummy. (amymylove)
Very citrusy, but other than the eggplant torta I made them for, I wasn't sure what else to do with them. (andini)
Pine nut crema
This is so delicious! It was about my favorite part of the whole meal. I was a little bitter buying pine nuts, because they are so expensive, and I've never loved them more than any other nuts, BUT the $6+ 1/2 cup was worth it for this. It gets much smoother than a cashew cream, and the flavor is perfect. I put lots of dollops on top of the spicy tortilla casserole, and had some leftover for topping. I tried to broil it, but my pine nuts got done before anything happened to the crema. I don't know if I love it that much more when it's baked, but I love it, period. Will make again. (AC)
Really good. The pine nuts add a nice richness normally absent from tofu, and because it's rich a little goes a long way. If pine nuts weren't so expensive, I'd probably use them instead of cashews for all 'cheesy' things because they went so well here. (fb)
Red chile sauce
This stuff is really good! I made it to go along with my tamales but yummmmm I wonder what else I can mix it in! (amymylove)
A bit different from the recipe because I used fresh garden chiles. I wasn't sure about the heat in them, so I removed the seeds in quite a few. I just sauteed them with the onions and stuff. I followed the directions otherwise, but added a splash of chipotle sauce. Yummy! Mine came out with just the right amount of heat, and the flavor is really good. (AC)
This was good even though we doubled the tomatoes by mistake. Deseeded the Ancho chilis so this wasn't spicy in the slightest! Worked well with the tamales. (blinknoodle)
Simple Latin tomato sauce
I made this to eat with the Farmer's Market tamales. I used canned stewed tomatoes, so it would up a little sweet. At first I was considering not adding the lime at the end, but I did, and I like that it adds a little bit (but not too much) of a tang. I think it depends on what form of tomato you use though... maybe if you use not-super-ripe fresh ones, it won't need it. Anyway, this seems like a pretty versatile sauce you could even use on pasta. Though it has cumin, it's not so strong that this couldn't go with anything. A whole recipe of this worked well for a half recipe of tamales.  (fb)
I used crushed tomatoes and I loved the texture. The taste goes so well with the pupusas. I have some left over that I'm going to put on top of some fried tofu. (intheend)
So good, so green dipping sauce (Green aji sauce)
This sauce was pretty awesome! I used it as a dip for my new batch of Sweet & Spicy Seitan-Potato Empanadas (As advised by Terry). I added probably doubled the vegan mayo cause I love my sauces creamy. This also makes a yummy salad dressing! I would also wait to add the water to make sure you really need it. (amymylove)
soooo delicious!! my husband and I loved this. i didn't add the cilantro or water, and probably added more lettuce and more mayo (wasn't measuring).  i can't believe how easy it is to make this sauce! (thirteenblackbirds)
This is the most vibrant green! I put it in my vitamix and it looked awesome on top of the mashed potato pancakes. The taste is perfect also. (intheend)
Really good! It's surprising that something mostly made of... lettuce... can be so tasty. The seasonings are spot-on. I used most of it as a salad dressing, which is weird, using lettuce as a dressing for lettuce, but it's tangy & herby so it works. The lettuce gives it a very "fresh" taste. (fb)
Made this for the empanadas. It's good! Nice and fresh and easy. I used 1/2 a large/hot jalapeno. It tasted spicy when I first tasted it, but then wasn't really that spicy over all..could have used more. I didn't add any extra water. My mom said she thought the romaine brought the freshness down a bit, but I liked it. I might have added a bit too much. I'd make this again. (AC)
Spicy salsa golf

The only guacamole recipe I ever make
I was slightly skeptical when I made this, because it doesn't have any garlic! I usually make my guac with garlic, and no onion, but this actually came out tasting quite similar. I used 1 jalapeno, and it was spicier than I wanted for guac. Pretty tasty, but I'll use my regular recipe. (AC)
I used 3 smaller avocados instead of 2 regular, didn't add the full amount of lime or salt, and it came out pretty limey/salty. Next time I'll just add to taste. Yeah, like any guacamole recipe, it's guacamole... pretty much always should be made to taste, right? (fb)
Like AC I was skeptical of a guac that doesn't contain garlic, as I always always add it.  But it came out good without it, not great though, just good.  I liked the addition of cilantro, which I don't usually add to guac.  May use again, but would add a bit of garlic or garlic powder. (shelloid)

Cilantro-lime rice - Meh.......I think using brown rice in this recipe didn't work and made it weird.  I also didn't have lime zest so added extra lime juice and over did it.

Costa Rican refried rice and beans (Gallo pinto)
Love it.  So simple and easy and delicious.  I have made this two times so far and each time I've had to add a lot more liquid than it calls for but apart from that followed the recipe pretty much exactly.  I was usrprised at how much I like this recipe - given that I've made it twice in 3 weeks, it's a good sign. (shelloid)

Peruvian seitan and potato skewers (Seitan anticuchos)
Wow!  Super good recipe.  The first time I had it was when I was at oww's so I thought it was amazing just coz she made it.   Then I made it at home and used kumara instead of potato and it was great.  I made it again last night with potatoes, seitan, onion and mushroom - and yes the potatoes are awesome in this - much better than the kumara which was great anyway.  I didn't bother with skewers and just stir fried it all together until the onion was just cooked.  I think the only other change I made was the chili powder.  I don't have any fancy schmancy chili powders, so just used a much smaller amount of my super hot chili powder (not the same stuff as US chilli powder).  Total win of a recipe and easy to make.  Will go into my regular meal rotations. (shelloid)

Pan grilled vegetables in chile lime beer
I did not like this very much. I was thinking that 5 minutes was not long at all to marinate, so I did it for most of the day! That said, I couldn't taste the marinade at all in the veggies. I used some zucchini, okra, and green beans. A bit of a let down for me, and not something I'd do again.

Coconut tres leches cake
So good! I made this specifically for my mom, because she had been talking about an omni version she loves. This turned out so well, and she loved it. She said the only thing was she wished it was a bit gushier..which sounds gross to me. I thought the texture was perfect-still very moist and cool cake with the syrup inside. I actually used quatro milks! Vanilla almond milk, unsweetened almond milk, hazelnut milk, and coconut milk. I did the coconut extract for the cake, some creme de cacao for the alcohol, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and orange extract for the topping. I didn't garnish with any fruit, but don't skimp on the coconut! Time intensive, but one of my favorite cakes.

Quinoa corn chowder with limas and aji - I really liked this. A thick stew more than a soup but that's the way I like my soups! I didn't use the aji paste, just chili flakes. A mellow, light yet creamy soup (I used unsweetened almond milk). I didn't use any toppings but they would likely make it even better.

Black bean sweet potato tamales - These were really good!! I wasn't pleased that the masa filling had 1 cup of margarine/shortening, so I used Tess' masa filling from RHIW. Basically, I used the same filling, added 1/4 cup Earth Balance (melted it in the pan) with the black bean mixture. Then I added all of the black bean filling to the masa filling. I kept the sweet potato part separate. 500g of sweet potato did not even come close to filling all my tamales, so that needs to be doubled, if not tripled. I ended up making around 50 tamales, but they were obviously more on the small side. But dude, these were great and nearly guilt-free! :)

Red chile sauce - This was good even though we doubled the tomatoes by mistake. Deseeded the Ancho chilis so this wasn't spicy in the slightest! Worked well with the tamales.

I love this cookbook!!!! It's one of my faves.  Everyone whos tried the recipes I've made loved them.  Finally flan!!!  I loved flan before and now I love it even more.  I can't wait to try the Tres Leches.  Now I wonder what guacamole with garlic would taste like.  I've never made it that way before.

Savory orange rice, Brazilian style
We really liked this!  I only made it because I didn't want plain rice with my dinner and this was the only recipe I had all the ingredients for.  Like fb, I was concerned this would be overly orange (or too much like dessert rice!), but it really wasn't.  I used broth not water and I think that helped it to be savoury, rather than a sweet dish.  Like I normally find when I'm cooking rice with the exact amount of water to be absorbed, I did need to add more water to ensure my rice was properly cooked, but no too much.  Definitely a keeper of a recipe.

Thanks.  I gobbled it up.

Pan-fried tempeh with sofrito - I was wary of this because tempeh tends to absorb lots of grease when fried.  Steaming for this recipe is essential.  That said, this was a pretty tasty dish.  I cubed the tempeh because that's how I roll with tempeh and I was generous with the oil for frying, trying not to be fat-phobic.  After frying the tempeh I put it on a paper towel and used the wine to deglaze the frying pan (after emptying out the extra oil) which is using the wine out of order, but I proceeded and knocked about five minutes off the cooking time and it was all good.
I'll have to look and see when I reviewed the sofrito because I'm still using that batch that I had frozen at that time and it was good.

Mexican street corn - Delicious!!!  I wasn't expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised.  What I did was mix everything up before I slathered in on the corn.  I used mayo, regular chile powder, some lime and crumbled up some Mexican oregano...the sum is much greater than the parts. And she's right, this is messy.  Loved this.
