My husband has owned a butcher shop and has been a "big time" hunter as long as I've known him (35 years). He grew up on a farm in the midwest living on the animals they raised. So, when I, for health reasons, decided to go vegan it was not only a shock to him but his entire family! One day I just walked into a book store and bought this book, took it home and started cooking. From that day on the entire family has been hooked! My side of the family has been transformed also. My parents and children (all grown up) now have this cookbook also. For my hunting/fishing for everything out there family to transform like this is a miracle! These are down to earth recipes with down to earth ingredients. Not at all "flaky" or "outrageous" like a lot of vegan cookbooks that I've seen. None of the smaller kids will look at the meals and say,"Ick, what's that?". If you purchase this book it'll be the last one that you ever want to buy!

1,000 Vegan Recipes is the unequivocal answer to the universal question asked of all vegans/vegetarians, "What do you eat?" With 1,000 recipes packed into a one volume tome I will no longer answer the question but merely hand over my copy of 1,000 Vegan Recipes! Contents include Appetizers and Snacks, Salads, Sandwiches, Pizza and More, Soups, Pasta and Noodles, Main Dishes, Vegetable Side Dishes, Breads, Desserts, Breakfast and Brunch, Beverages, and Sauces, Relishes and Condiments - Nothing has been missed, nothing has been left out!

The introduction covers all of the "whys" and "how to's" and the book itself is interspersed with tips and information. Robin also marks quickly made recipes with a circled "f" (for "Fast") and I was delighted to see so many little f's as I flipped through the book, especially in the main dishes section. I love to cook but I will be turning to these fast recipes for weeknight meal inspiration.

I will confess that I was a recipe tester for this book, but all that means is that I am able to finally share all the wonderful recipes I tested and have already been making this last year. My friends have been patiently waiting for the day that I no longer tell them, "It's a secret" and I have been bursting to share my favorite recipes with everyone. Such as "Golden Harvest Soup", not only is it packed with nutrients for a cancer fighting punch, but it is superbly delicious - the perfect amount of flavor and simplicity. I had a picky eater living with me last year but she devoured "Flower Power Granola Squares"! And of course the holidays this year would be nothing without "Ginger-Spice Brownies" - I plan on bringing them to every occasion.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have two of Robin Robertson's previous cookbooks: Vegan Planet and Quick-Fix Vegetarian. I refer to these often as I plan my meals for the week. I recently purchased this latest cookbook, 1000 Vegan Recipes and it is everything I hoped it would be.

Currently, I am in the process of previewing the cookbook and marking the recipes I would like to try. Honestly, I haven't made it through the first two sections (appetizers and snacks, and salads) and I have over 100 recipes marked to try!! God knows by the time I finish previewing the cookbook I will have an arsenal of over 800+ recipes that I sure that I will love because I've had so much success with her other cookbooks. Such as Romaine and Grape Tomato Salad with Avocado and Baby Peas, Mango and Snow Pea Salad, White Bean and Dill Hummus, Quick Pinto-Potato Empanadas and I can't wait to try the Seared Portobello Fajitas. All of these are screaming "TRY ME!".

I don't see any repeat recipes from Robertson's other cookbooks. To me, the recipes seem less exotic than the recipes found in Vegan Planet which really appeals to me. The cookbook is a chock full of down-home recipes with easily assesible ingredients lists.

Robin also provides a lot of helpful tips throughout the book and writes a brief introduction to each recipes. She lets you know if there is a suitable substitute for an ingredients such as dried cranberries instead of pomegranate seeds in the Sweet Potato and Broccoli Salad with Pomegranate-Peanut Dressing (can't wait to try that one!!!). My review is long and I didn't mention that she has nice recipes for Breakfast and Brunch, Breads, Beverages, Sauces, Relishes and Condiments etc.

I am SO pleased with this cookbook.

I just spent about an hour checking out 1000 Vegan Recipes and am very impressed. I am a former caterer/chef and am pretty good at eyeballing a recipe and determining if I will like it. It is obvious from the amazing assortment of recipes that Robin Robertson is a professional chef and has years (25) of experience.

This book is jammed full of wonderful recipes! I am not a vegan, but cook increasingly so and really needed a good vegan cookbook--1,000 Vegan Recipes is it!

This book has everything, including a recipe for seitan. I just bought seitan and was taken aback at its cost--$5.00 for 8 ounces! It was delicious, however and I planned to buy it again. Now, however, with the recipe Robertson provides, I can make my own which will be much cheaper and most likely, much better!

I like the explanations for all things vegan throughout the book.

There are tons of recipes I cannot wait to make. I have other vegetarian/vegan books, but sense this one will be my "go-to" cookbook!
