Think of any go-to American meat-focused cookbook. Now, imagine it vegan. From the Guamanian brother-sister duo behind the acclaimed and beloved vegan butcher shop, The Herbivorous Butcher, here are 75 innovative recipes for plant-based meats and standout vegan dishes. These are butcher shop classics (but so much healthier) such as Pork Chops, Ground Beef, and Chicken Cutlets that taste and chew as good as the real thing—perfect for vegans as well as anyone who wants to eat less meat.

AUTHORS WITH SERIOUS KNOW-HOW: Siblings Aubry and Kale Walch opened The Herbivorous Butcher in 2016, which quickly gained a cult following in their local Minneapolis and beyond. Their products are now sold in regional Whole Foods locations, and they ship a wide range of products to all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Their fans have been ardently asking for their recipes—and here they are, for the first time, in this book.

The Herbivorous Butcher Cookbook offers achievable recipes for making meat substitutes at home, as well as recipes for delicious dishes using those homemade meat substitutes (or store-bought substitutes if you’re in a pinch!).

About the Author

Sister and brother duo Aubry and Kale Walch have spent the last several years perfecting The Herbivorous Butcher's deliciously deceiving meat-free meats. Aubry has spent over a decade creating meat-free alternatives for many of the foods that she grew up with on Guam, a place where each meal consisted of at least two different kinds of meat or seafood.

After years of watching Aubry thrive, Kale Walch followed suit and became vegan. Over the past few years, he has developed a keen sense for the many ingredients and methods that go into making the most flavorful, nutritious, and satisfying meat alternatives. Together they opened The Herbivorous Butcher in 2016 in Minneapolis. The Herbivorous Butcher Cookbook is their first book.
