I second the avocado. Followed closely by shrimp!

megany09 said...

Fresh herbs from my garden!

Becky said...

Jumping right to the ice cream!

Lauren RZ said...

Somehow, I have converted my Marine husband into a tofu fiend! Crispy tofu stir-fry with coconut sauce is our favorite preparation.

Jessica said...

Pesto, especially now that spring/summer is here and you can pretty much grow as much basil as you want.

Jennifer said...

Mmmm, avocado! And also eggs. Om nom.

Paige Austin said...

The new favorite? Mint leaves from the front yard!! So pumped for this cookbook!

Lindsay-Jean said...

Congrats!! Avocado! Or cheese...

Mandy said...

fresh pineapple

Jan Scholl said...

I never thought I would get hubby to be veg at home. His other choice was starve. I told him he either had to cook his own food if he wanted meat or hire a cook to do that. So it's eat what I cook or else. I put garlic in just about everything. And then I hot sauce it up.

Tulse Luper said...

Cumin is the most vital ingredient in my kitchen, I can't seem to get by without it. Congratulations on your book! I've been reading The Chubby Vegetarian for about a year and a half now and have to thank you for all the recipes.

Kathryn said...

Pasta in all kinds of permutations!

The Yogi Vegetarian said...

Scrambled tofu with fried plantain, tomatoes and avocado on the side is our family favourite weekend brunch. Most made recipe is basic eggless cake in its countless variations and most used single ingredient is probably brown rice! Congratulations on the arrival of your book :)

Lily said...

We have just renovated our kitchen so this book comes at a perfect time! Your recipes are great, I can't wait to dig in!

Lily said...

Oops! I was so excited that I forgot to mention hot sauce is a staple in my kitchen. We have a dozen varieties from around the world and at least one makes it into every dish around here!

Kelly said...

Expresso Red Eye Gravy...Enough said!

Jessica Rajagopal said...

Chili! My husband being a vegetarian Indian I had to navigate my way around more spices than I could shake a stick at. I now can not live with out chili's. The hotter the better!

Kelly said...

Sorry I had to comment on the gravy. Awesome. As strange as it sounds Avocados and hot sauce are staples in this house. I am the only vegetarian out of five people and the only hot sauce enthusiast. Trying to get everyone else to eat what I eat is a task.

runycat said...

Lately I've been using a ton of pickled jalapenos, but I love avocado. I also really enjoy the ancho chile tart you have here on the site.

Ali - YumVeggieBurger said...

favorite: vegan macaroni & cheese. simple, but 100% comfort food! especially after a long day of work.

Danielle Richardet said...

Sweet potatoes.... and since we always have loads of eggs (from our backyard hens) definitely eggs!

Congrats on your cookbook! I can't wait to have it in my kitchen :)

ssummers said...

Congratulations on the book. Can't wait to read it. Our new favorite is quinoa.

dal bhat :)

Delia said...

I go through fazes, but lately it has been Eggplant!! I can't get enough of it, stuffed, grilled, roasted, doesn't matter how it is prepared it is always delicious!

genejan said...

My newest toy is a dehydrator, and chips are the current craze. First, when still in season, kale chips (your recipe!), then leek chips with a Japanese spin, and lately, sweet potato chips with your Memphis spice rub, maple syrup and lime.

Kim G. said...

Lately I've been using tons of paprika.....sweet, smoked, hot Hungarian. I can't seem to get enough of it.

THK said...

Burrata has become a new favorite in my house!

Jennie said...

Every southerner needs Sweet Tea to wash down all dishes, vegetarian or not! :) I make it with a few sprigs of frest mint from my garden to cut down the use of sugar.

marmaladecheeks said...

It used to be Frank's Red Hot, but I have switched over to Sriracha. Every recipe I have used Sriracha instead of Red Hot, my husband has said it has been the best time I've made it.

Nicole said...

lately I've been adding avocado to everything, but I also love the many forms of coconut!

charj said...

My favorite ingredient would be all varieties of potatoes.

AshleyJuanita said...

MEXICAN CORNBREAD with lots of jalapenos!

Lacey Herbie said...

I would be lost without lemons in my kitchen. They add so much flavor and brightness to everything!

Lesley Eats said...

Smoked salt or smoked paprika. Or liquid smoke. Ha, I love cooking with smoke, I guess. :)

LittleMonsterx14 said...

congrats! that's so exciting!!

Beth Brooke said...

Congratulations!

I currently can't live without wraps. I'm loving spinach-egg or asparagus-egg wraps for breakfast and various veggies wraps for lunch (like hummus and spinach or vegetarian baked beans and cheese).

E. Lindsey said...

Fresh red onion, garlic, or avocado. Smoked cheeses as well :)

Apocalyptic Alchemist said...

A loaf of good bread. We use it for toast, sandwiches, to scoop bruschetta, dip in or to thicken soups and stew, bake into bread puddings, make into croutons, etc. Necessary to life!

Leah Douglas said...

Oh I would love this book! I've been scanning the shelves for something like it for a long time. Our favorite meal is a nice hearty vegetable lasagna. Mmmmm.

Oscar's Mom said...

Congratulations on your cookbook! So looking forward to it. Ya'll have the best recipes!
Favorite dinner? Triple tomato soup + toasted white cheddar croutons; vegetarian meatloaf and garlic mashed potatoes; mascarpone banana pudding.
The best!

Ren said...

Laura Pearce said...

Pancho's Salsa!!

Bre Hofferkamp said...

Bre Hofferkamp said...

Toasted sesame oil & sriracha!

Abby said...

Ditto everyone who said avocados and hot sauce. I could truly make tacos every day and be happy.

Tolana said...

Chickpeas!

Jeanne P said...

Looking forward to your cookbook!

For breakfast on Sundays it's your Miracle Mushroom Gravy with Drop Biscuits - the best!

Dianne Faye said...

Gotta love garlic hummus w/ pita!

Stacy said...

Beans are a staple. They can be cooked so many different ways.

Nancie Rowe Janitz said...

Congratulations on your new cookbook.. I love following your posts and seeing all the creative recipes, so I know I have to have this! My favorite thing lately is roasting veggies or squash in the oven. Brussels, cauliflower & asparagus taste so good roasted, I just eat them out of the oven.

Gidget Wilson said...

So many to choose from, but have to say Homemade Pizza!! :-)

akalbert said...

BLACK BEANS!!!

Nancie Rowe Janitz said...

Roasted veggies - cauliflower, brussels & asparagus. Today I roasted acorn squash and stuffed it with quinoa and it was so yummy!

Congrats on the new cookbook - I love all your recipes. HUGS!

Jessica Morris said...

White faux sausage gravy. Even meat eaters can't tell the difference. Just as unhealthy and tasty as the real thing!!

MsVeggie said...

Hummus/chick peas!

K said...

My favorite is tofu. The Siracha sauce is a close 2nd though!

K said...

My favorite is tofu, but Siracha is a close second (maybe even a tie!)

K said...

My favorite is tofu, though Siracha is a close second. It might be a tie!

Dina Smith said...

Black Bean Tacos!

Melissa Baucom said...

Fried Rice is always a hit with my kid. We saute the vegetables separately with all the seasonings and then put it over steamed rice for a lighter version with less oil...

DoubleLP said...

I cant wait! Quinoa is a new fav for experimenting.

Left-Handed Housewife said...

Avocado!

Lindye said...

I've loved all the recipes I've tried. So glad THE cookbook is almost here!

Dinne said...

Hummus with pita chips...gotta love it!
