Vegan books have risen to a dominant sales position in the
vegetarian category. One-dish meals are perennially popular
on American tables, and books devoted to one-dish cooking perform
well. Robin Robertson''s One-Dish Vegan is the first book at the
intersection of these two powerful cookbook categories.
Robin Robertson has built a publishing record of very successful
titles in the vegetarian category. She is known for her creativity
in the kitchen, for the breadth of enticing ingredients and flavors
with which she works, and for her expertise in vegetarian
nutrition-with a special focus lately on how vegans still can get
enough protein in their diets. Typically, it takes two or three
courses or dishes to make a well-rounded vegan meal. To meet this
criterion in one dish takes the kind of ingenuity and expert
knowledge that Robertson possesses.
One-Dish Vegan contains more than 150 recipes. They range from the
most popular categories of one-dish dining like stews, chilis, and
casseroles (and other baked dishes) to a host of stovetop sautés
and stir-fries as well as substantial salads and dishes that
feature pasta as well as other noodles, such as Asian noodles. The
recipes are at once homey and adventuresome, comforting and
surprising. Above all, they demonstrate that it really is possible
to get a complete vegan meal into one dish, full of good-for-you
nutrients and bright, satisfying flavors.
