This is also a vegan cookbook that I only just received. I am working on testing the recipes in it, seeing which ones I like, marking the ones I don't with devil horns, etc. This process takes me forever, especially since my boy wonder does most of the cooking around the house. However, the first recipe I tried from the Veganomicon was a sad disaster. It was for a Spinach-Noodle Kugel. I should have known; I've never been a fan of Jewish cuisine because it has always seemed to be a mixture of bland ingredients and salt. I know this means comfort food to some folks. I just haven't found it to be very flavorful, and I grew up in a house filled with rich Indian spices. My comfort food is curry.

Anyway, the Kugel was noodle-y and spinach-y and that was it. I hated it. We saved the pan by mixing in tomato sauce and improvising a spinach lasagna. Hopefully the next recipe we test won't go over the same way-I'm definitely staying away from the Jewish cuisine from now on.
