"Many studies have shown that vegetarians seem to have a lower risk of obesity, coronary heart disease (which causes heart attack), high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, and some forms of cancer."--The American Heart Association Quick-Fix Vegetarian by Robin Robertson recently was named Best New Cookbook by PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The international organization's Proggy Award (short for "progress") recognizes animal-friendly achievement in 21st century culture and commerce. No longer considered a "hippie fad," the vegan lifestyle is becoming going mainstream. In her latest book vegetarian expert Robin Robertson creates recipes such as Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Quesadillas, Chipotle-Kissed Black Bean Soup, Mediterranean Orzo Salad, Beat-the-Clock Lasagna, Five-Minute Slow-Cooker Chili, and No-Bake Oatmeal Almond Cookies for this growing consumer base. In addition, Quick-Fix Vegetarian shows how to use many of the new commercial vegetarian products and includes recipe variations and tips for speedy, stress-free entertaining without sacrificing flavor or mainstream appeal.

Vegan Planet introduces a world of delicious choices to the millions of Americans who are vegans, vegetarians looking to move away from dairy and eggs, or non-vegetarians who have food sensitivities (more than 30 million Americans are lactose intolerant) or are simply trying to eat healthier. The vegan diet consists solely of plant-based ingredients. A vegan diet contains no eggs, dairy, or other animal products, including honey, but is chock full of delicious, nutritious, and satisfying whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and proteins from plant sources. In Vegan Planet, Robin Robertson shows how to make vegan cuisine exciting, flavorful, and full of variety. First she provides a complete rundown on the vegan pantry and the tremendous health benefits of this way of eating. Then she presents 400 tantalizing new recipes for breakfast (Pumpkin Pie Pancakes), lunch (Fried Green Tomato Po-Boys), and dinner (Hot Tamale Vegetable Pie). There are decadent-without-dairy desserts (Brandy-Apple Pie) and creative ideas for entertaining guests (Ginger-Scented Pot Stickers, Curried Cauliflower Pakoras). Taking advantage of the many cuisines around the world with large repertoires of naturally vegan recipes, this book is truly global in its culinary offerings.
Vegan Without Borders shares Robin Robertson's favorite dishes from the great cuisines of the world and shows how cooking vegan makes borders disappear. Whether the recipe hails from Ecuador or Ethiopia, these plant-based dishes invite you to travel the culinary world and sample 150 of Robin's all-time favorites. This mini-immersion into global cooking also reveals that many international cuisines are naturally free of the meat-and-potatoes constraints of the typical Standard American Diet (SAD), and food-loving vegans will delight at the dishes Robin places on her table at home. The recipes are healthy and accessible but without compromising on flavor. The pastiche of plant-based delights are organized by country or region of the world, making it easy to prepare a single recipe or to put courses together for a complete meal in a particular cuisine. The recipes include family-style comfort foods, global ethnic favorites, and creative new dishes inspired by the classics, all developed to satisfy a variety of mealtime desires. The result is a bounty of mouthwatering recipes that span the globe, representing the cooking traditions of more than twenty different countries of Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, India, and Asia.
