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 books have risen to a dominant sales position in the vegetarian category. One-dish meals are perennially popular on American tables, and books devoted to one-dish cooking perform well. Robin Robertson’s One-Dish Vegan is the first book at the intersection of these two powerful cookbook categories. Robin Robertson has built a publishing record of very successful titles in the vegetarian category. She is known for her creativity in the kitchen, for the breadth of enticing ingredients and flavors with which she works, and for her expertise in vegetarian nutrition—with a special focus lately on how vegans still can get enough protein in their diets. Typically, it takes two or three courses or dishes to make a well-rounded vegan meal. To meet this criterion in one dish takes the kind of ingenuity and expert knowledge that Robertson possesses. One-Dish Vegan contains more than 150 recipes. They range from the most popular categories of one-dish dining like stews, chilis, and casseroles (and other baked dishes) to a host of stovetop sautés and stir-fries as well as substantial salads and dishes that feature pasta as well as other noodles, such as Asian noodles. The recipes are at once homey and adventuresome, comforting and surprising. Above all, they demonstrate that it really is possible to get a complete vegan meal into one dish, full of good-for-you nutrients and bright, satisfying flavors.
