She has broadened the horizons of vegan cooking by selecting recipes of diverse cultures, unified in their use of wholesome, well-balanced ingredients. Vegan or not, anyone interested in sound nutrition and imaginative food can benefit from this book.” – Brother Victor-Antoine D’Avila-Latourrette, author of Twelve Months of Monastery Soups and From a Monastery Kitchen

Vegan Planet proves that this healthy way of eating can please everyone. I am thrilled by Robin Robertson’s creative cooking, understanding of great taste, and knowledge of global cooking. Dishes like Golden Ratatouille, Lemon Risotto, and Tofu Vindaloo turn eating well into pure pleasure.” – Dana Jacobi, author of Amazing Soy

Vegan Planet is a spectacular achievement. Robin Robertson expertly draws from an astonishing range of cuisines to produce some of the tastiest meals I’ve ever had.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With 400 recipes, this is probably the biggest vegan (no animal products-meaning dairy- and egg-free) cookbook on the market. It's also one of the best. Robertson (The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook) is a likable guide to possibly unfamiliar ingredients such as flaxseeds and sea vegetables, and the recipe choices are almost overwhelming. Robertson relies on the usual trick of digging into ethnic cuisines (Thai-Style Leaf-Wrapped Appetizer Bits, Baked Sweet Potato and Green Pea Samosas are among the appetizers) for vegetarian options, but she also innovates in clever ways, as with Here's My Heart Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette with hearts of romaine, artichoke hearts, hearts of palm and celery hearts. Some of the most versatile options appear in a chapter dedicated to sauces and dressings, such as Eggless Hollandaise and Vegan B chamel Sauce. Chapters on breakfast ideas, sandwiches, wraps and burgers-with six different veggie burger options-ensure that all bases are covered. Occasionally, Robertson relies on packaged products like the soy sausage and mozzarella that appear in "Sausage" and Fennel Cannelloni, but most of these recipes simply make the best of vegetables, legumes and grains. A cogent foreword by Barnard (president of the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine) reports the startling fact that Americans-apparently misled into believing that switching from red meat to white will improve their health-now eat one million chickens every hour. (Jan.) Forecast: This is a serious entry in the field, and should fare well in its target market-this country's estimated 10 million vegetarians. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
This ambitious new cookbook from the author of The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook offers dozens of imaginative vegan recipes inspired by a wide range of cuisines, from Five-Spiced Portobello Satays and Lebanese Fattoush (bread salad) to Cajun-Style Collards and Moroccan Fava Bean Stew. There are also vegan versions of such meat dishes as shepherd's pie and chili, as well as sandwiches like Curried Chicken-Less Salad and Seitan Reuben. Robertson's style is more down-to-earth than Crescent Dragonwagon's in Passionate Vegetarian, but Dragonwagon's book, which includes recipes made with eggs and dairy products, complements Robinson's. For most collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

This is the best vegan cook by far! Every single dish (and there have been many and many) that I have made from this book has been 100% delicious! The consistancy is awesome. The varity is what keeps me going back to it night after night. I have made dishes from this book for my non vegan and non vegetarian friends and they absloutly loved them. I definetly recommend picking this up, the recipies are easy to follow and come out amazing!
