There’s a lot going on in the Robin Robertson world of cookbooks, so let’s start with an update on two updates! Several people have asked if the upcoming Hot Vegan and Nut Butter Cookbooks are the same as Vegan Fire and Spice and Nut Butter Universe. In a word, the answer is: YES!  In a few more words, here’s what’s happening….

The Nut Butter Cookbook, published by Andrews McMeel Publishing and available August 19th, is a new and updated edition of the book originally published as Nut Butter Universe by Vegan Heritage Press.

Hot Vegan, also published by Andrews McMeel Publishing and available on September 23rd, is a new and updated edition of Vegan Fire and Spice (originally published by Vegan Heritage Press).

So….if you already have Vegan Fire and Spice and Nut Butter Universe, you probably don’t need these new additions (unless you spilled maple syrup and tamari sauce all over them, then it’s probably a good idea to replace them). However, if these titles have been on your wish list (or you want to buy copies for friends), then these sparkling new editions await!

In other cookbook news…. Just a few more weeks until my gorgeous new full-color hardcover book called Vegan Without Borders hits the shelves. It’s available now for preorder. I must say, I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about one of my books as I am about this one. In the coming weeks, I’ll be posting a few sample recipes and photos so you can see what all the excitement is about!

Finally, just a reminder, (because I’ve been asked about this like a kajillion times)… All y’all do realize that there are three separate and distinct cookbooks in my “quick-fix” series, right? So, in other words, if you already have Quick Fix-Vegetarian (which is actually 100% vegan) or Quick-Fix Vegan, you would probably want to check out the third volume – and my personal favorite of the three: MORE Quick-Fix Vegan. Three separate books, 150 recipes each – that 450 recipes with less than 30 minutes active cooking time!  Collect the set!

    I have and love all three of your Quick Fix books and recommend them all the time to people who want some wonderful vegan recipes that are delicious, easy, and truly quick (unlike the promises of some other books!).

      Thank you Eve. Much appreciated!

    August 19th is Hot & Spicy Food Day…perfect excuse to grab your Fire and Spice book and find a hot dish! Cheers! 🙂

    Thank you for the update! I own both Vegan Fire & Spice and Nut Butter Universe and have been wondering if the new ones on the subject were actually new or not. So thanks for saving me more research.
    P.S. You should see those books, they look like porcupines with stick its everywhere.

      Thanks Laurel. I’m glad I could help — and I’m glad you’re enjoying the books!

    Can you please tell us what several new recipes are included in the Hot Vegan cookbook which is, as mentioned in your blog, an updated edition of your wonderful and unique Vegan Fire and Spice cookbook? Thanks, Robin!

      Hi Wayne, The totally new recipes in Hot Vegan are Buffalo Cauliflower, Black Pepper Tofu and Asparagus, Gobi Manchurian, and Pisto Manchego, while several others from the old edition have been revised or updated.

        Thanks, Robin, for your quick response. I am assuming the same goes for The Nut Butter Cookbook. There are several new, updated or revised nut butter recipes, right? If so, what are they? Please know that I am still debating about getting your new and updated cookbooks despite the fact that I already have both old edition cookbooks in my “library”.

        • Robin December 14, 2014, 5:47 pm

          Wayne, the Nut Butter Cookbook doesn’t contain new recipes. That one is simply an updated new design revision of Nut Butter Universe. So I’d say if you have NBU you don’t need the new nut butter cookbook (unless your old book is smeared with nut butter!) However, for Hot Vegan, if the new recipes and the idea of some revisions and a new design appeal to you, you may like to get that one.

            Wow, Robin, thanks for your very helpful and detailed response. I am going to place my order for the Hot Vegan cookbook after all. It is always great to have the additional and updated/revised spicy recipes on hand. Happy holidays to you and Jon!

            Thank you, Wayne, Happy Holidays to you, too!
