I wanted protein recipes other than that mashing a vanilla-flavored powder with almond butter and flax seeds and calling it a day. I wanted something that really made me feel as if I was cooking. And yes, even good old-fashioned baking! Adding pure, unflavored, but wholesome plant-based protein powders to recipes brings out my inner foodie alchemist. I heard the call of the protein ninja.

Whether you're vegan, vegetarian, or eat-everything-you-can-get-your-hands-on, a weeknight home chef, everyday athlete, or just a busy person looking wholesome, protein-rich snacks and meals, you deserve something better than another chia seed ball or protein shake for dinner. Award-winning vegan chef Terry Hope Romero leads the charge with 100 lean, mean recipes using a wide range of readily available ingredients—from supermarket-friendly staples to cutting-edge superfoods and an arsenal of gluten- and soy-free options. With an everything-you-need-to-know rundown on plant-based protein sources, and chapters like Stealthy Protein Pancakes, Waffles, Scrambles, & Much Much More, Super Toast: Savory or Sweet, and Better than Ever Burger Bowls, you'll soon be sneaking plant-based protein into your breakfasts, dinners, and everything in between.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from If you buy this book, I suggest you visit a bulkstore I totally agree with the previous review. I would say pretty much the same thing. The recipes require a variety of flours (hemp, almond, pea, flax). Nothing wrong with that, but it means buying a lot of different ingredients. It's only $5, so not a huge investment, but check out the actual recipes and see if it's realistic for you before buying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good standard cookbook I was glad to see a vegetarian cookbook that included some higher protein recipes that were easily pulled together and tasted great. There are some definite go-tos in this book. I did find it a bit annoying that so many different types of protein powder are used throughout the book, as this means that even if you buy pea protein for one recipe, you might need hemp for the next one you want to try. And I wanted more pictures!
