Our May VegCookbook: Vegan on the Cheap

vegan on the cheapA big thanks to everyone who voted for our May VegCookbook. It was a tight race, but as of this writing, you chose Vegan on the Cheap by Robin Robertson to be the next VegCookbook we cook through together.

You can learn more about Robin on her website & blog at, robinrobertson.com, follow her on Twitter at @GlobalVegan, and friend her on Facebook.

She has four sample recipes from Vegan on the Cheap on her website: Penne-Wise Peanutty Pasta, Vegetable Crisp, Smokey Joes, and Caramel Baked Apples.

To get you excited to dive into our May VegCookbook, I’ve compiled a list of blog posts (with photos) about recipes from Vegan on the Cheap:

  1. Great! I really like Vegan on the Cheap, it’s actually one of my favorite cookbooks for simple recipes, and I am looking forward to trying new recipes from it.

    • Hi Babette ~

      What are some of your favorite recipes? I just got my copy today, and am looking forward to diving in. Would love some recommendations.

      • It’s one of the books I most recommend, so I’ve tried quite a few recipes. I particularly like : Baked Seitan Loaf, Cutlets on the Cheap, French Lentil Chili, Cincinnati Suburb Chili (with pasta and nooch sauce), Curried Vegetable Salad, Bean and Barley Salad, Nacho Taco Salad (OMG), the Tabbouleh, the Skordalia Salad, Three Bean Loaf, Better Bean Burgers, Split Pea Soup, and the Clafouti!

      • This is great, Babette! Thank you so much for sharing these. I put little tabs on all the pages of my cookbook. (:

  2. I’ve already gone through the cookbook and made a whole list of recipes I want to try. I’m having flooring installed in May so I hope I can get in the kitchen soon to cook. :(

    • Hi Kelley,

      Oh my. Sounds like a slow cooker cookbook would have been a better fit for you in May! But how nice to have new floors. What are some of the recipes you’re the most excited to try?

  3. Yesterday I made the tree grain loaf – makes good toast but definately needs some salt, and the comfort loaf for dinner which got a double thumbs up from my 2 wee boys. Seitan is simmering as we speak, and tuscan bean pizzas for tea tonight.
