One-Dish Vegan Is Here!

OneDishVegan launch Gary 004a

I’m very excited that my latest book, One-Dish Vegan, is now available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.  And as you can tell by the photo, Gary is thrilled about it, too!   One-Dish Vegan, contains 150 recipes that range from easy weeknight comfort food dishes to delicious meals that are special enough for company.

One-dish meals are some of my favorite ways to cook and serve food.  From soups and stews, to casseroles and main-dish salads, I like the idea of preparing something that includes all the components of the meal in one.  Many of these “one-dish” recipes are also “one-pot” recipes, making them especially easy to cook and serve.  Other recipes may take more than one pot to prepare, but the components are combined to be served as one-dish meals.  

 A complete revision of an earlier title, One-Dish Vegetarian Meals, the recipes have been updated and revised, and are now 100% vegan with icons for gluten-free and soy-free recipes, as well as the option to make many of the recipes oil-free. Many of the recipes were first published in my earlier books: The Vegetarian Chili Cookbook; Pasta for all Seasons; and Rice & Spice. In addition, One-Dish Vegan also contains many all-new recipes, such as Mac and Thai, Jamaican-Style Coconut Rice Bowl, and one of my favorites, Banh Mizza – a banh mi inspired pizza.

To celebrate the publication of One-Dish Vegan, I’d like to give you a brief tour of the book.  Here are the chapter titles with several recipes titles listed from each chapter, along with a few tester photos of some of the recipes:

        And since I commented an hour or so ago I received my shipping notice from amazon! My copy of One Dish Vegan should be delivered on Friday just in time for my weekend entertainment. Who says good things don’t happen on Friday the 13th, lol?

  • Mary September 10, 2013, 6:11 pm

    Congratulations Robin!
    Recipes and pics look yummy!
    I’m expecting my copy on Thursday!

      Thanks, Mary. Hope you love it! 🙂

  • Karen Faivre September 10, 2013, 8:27 pm

    Mine is on its way from Amazon. Everything sounds so delicious. Maybe I’ll try to cook my way through!

    • Robin September 10, 2013, 10:05 pm

      Oh, a cook-through would be fun, Karen. Let me know if you do!

  • Debbie September 10, 2013, 8:58 pm

    Hi Robin,

    I’ve had this book in my Amazon.ca wishlist for awhile now. I’d like to purchase it as an e-book for my tablet but it says I still have to pre-order it. Just wondering if you have any thoughts about when it might be available as a Kindle purchase for .ca. Also, thanks for adding the options, especially the option of making many of the options fat free.

    • Robin September 10, 2013, 10:07 pm

      Hi Debbie, I’m not sure about the Kindle version, Debbie, but I would think it would be available very soon.

      • Debbie September 10, 2013, 10:22 pm

        Thanks very much Robin. I’ll keep an eye out for it.

  • Carole September 10, 2013, 9:49 pm

    I’m sure I’ll be buying this one; my “One Dish Vegetarian” is falling apart, and has a big soy sauce spill on most of the pages!

    Glad you kept the Beer Chaser Chili in the new book 🙂

    • Robin September 10, 2013, 10:06 pm

      Carole, if you like One-Dish Vegetarian, I think you’ll like One-Dish Vegan even more!

    I am still waiting for Amazon to even ship my pre-ordered copy! I ordered it back in May and Amazon’s website lists the status as Not Yet Shipped while the order page lists your book in stock. I emailed their customer service department, so hopefully that will get things moving …

    • Robin September 11, 2013, 12:23 pm

      Hopefully Amazon will get your book out to you today.

  • The Peace Patch September 11, 2013, 9:10 pm

  • Loving the Planet September 30, 2013, 10:36 am

    Hi… I am curious about your One Dish Vegan Cookbook… alot of Vegan Cookbooks use still white pasta’s, white rice, or they go onto the gluten free options which are still not great for the body… I have eat whole nourishing foods, so pasta is really out for me unless its seawood pasta, lasagna, I can’t make for myself anymore because I can’t do gluten and I can’t do even the brown rice pastas… So I guess I am looking for a cookbook that teaches me something new… and I am wondering if this is the cookbook. I have a Cafe and feel I am on some of the cutting edge ways to truly bring nourishing, healthy and nutritious food to us, so I was hoping your book might be one of these books I could get inspired by with new information and ideas??? Is your book this book? Much love and thank you for all that you do. Ubuntu… I am because of who we all are…

  • Chessie September 30, 2013, 2:47 pm

    What a very handsome kitty! Oh, and what a beautiful cookbook, too! Your sample recipes sound and look great. Can’t wait to get the book.
