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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Chosen as one of the top 5 vegan cookbooks of 2014 by Grant Butler, The Oregonian: "This cookbook is her most-lavish so far, with 150 recipes that crisscross the globe, showing how vegan cooking can capture the essence of more than 20 countries, from an intense Eastern European goulash to spicy Ethiopian berbere stews to sop up with spongy injera flatbread. And you won't have to run all over town hitting specialty markets to make these dishes, since most ingredients can be found in any grocery store. This is ideal for adventurous eaters looking to expand their horizons." (Grant Butler, The Oregonian)

"Vegan Without Borders has our vote for the most beautiful vegan cookbook of 2014. It’s perfect for someone ready to stray from Western-style cooking to explore the diversity of flavorful international cuisines. You’ll get some of the finest vegan dishes from Africa, the Middle East, Europe, India, and Asia. Featuring beautiful photography throughout, this top-quality hardcover book makes this the perfect gift for the 2014 Holiday season." (Vegan.com)

This sumptuous, colorful collection of "Easy Everyday Meals from Around the World" is another winner for the prolific Robertson, who still manages to keep the quality level remarkably high as she delivers another fresh spin on vegan eating.

Robertson (Vegan Planet) here focuses on the global cuisines she loves. Recipes are a mix of traditionally vegan, vegan adaptations, and "inspired by" originals. According to Robertson, seasonings are often the distinguishing feature of a regional cuisine, and cooks will need a wide variety of herbs, spices, and condiments—most available at well-stocked large grocery stores—to make many of her recipes. The seasonings sometimes make for long ingredients lists but most recipes are fairly simple to prepare. Each country (organized by region: Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, India, and Asia) features a handful of the author's personal favorites for savory dishes and one dessert; it does not aim to be a comprehensive collection. Helpful extras such as overviews of common ingredients and flavors, pantry advice, menus, gluten- and soy-free notations, and online resources, combined with beautiful photos, makes for easy travelling. VERDICT Robertson's existing fans will be joined by many new ones on this tasty whirlwind tour of the globe.—Jude Baldwin, Coll. of the Siskiyous Lib., Weed, CA
