Cookbooks by Robin Robertson

Over the years, many people have asked me how many cookbooks I’ve written.  Since my first cookbook was published in 1996, there have been quite a few.  My main goal in writing all of my cookbooks has been to help people eat more plant food, thereby eating less (or hopefully eliminating) animals from their diets. In short, I do it for the animals.  But it’s a great benefit that it also helps people, too.

I’ve always listened to people’s excuses for not going vegan.  (Too expensive.” “Time consuming.” Not enough variety.” “what about protein?”) And those excuses are the things I’ve kept in mind as I contemplated what my next book would be.  For example, too expensive? Try Vegan on the Cheap.  Time consuming? Try my trio of “Quick Fix” cookbooks. Not enough variety? How about 1000 Vegan Recipes or Vegan Planet? What about protein? It’s nearly impossible to not get enough protein from a well-balanced healthy vegan diet, but even so, I’ve got you covered: The Plant Protein Revolution Cookbook. And on it goes.

Here’s a complete list of the cookbooks I’ve written.  I hope some of them have become your favorites!

    Your “Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes” has been a long time favorite of mine, with innovative and delicious meals that appeal to a wide range of taste. That’s where I first learned about yuba! (tofu skin)!!

    I have quite a few of your books but I’d say Vegan on the Cheap is the one I go to most. Didn’t you also provide the recipes in Vegan Unplugged? I love that one. I don’t see it listed here.
