About the Author

Terry Hope Romero is the author of several bestselling and award-winning cookbooks. In 2011 she was named Favorite Cookbook Author by VegNews.


“This is exceptionally good food for vegans, vegetarians, and the rest of us who are trying to eat a more sustainable, healthy, plant-based diet.” – Christian Science Monitor

“Exuberant and unapologetic…Moskowitz and Romero’s recipes don’t skimp on fat or flavor, and the eclectic collection of dishes is a testament to the authors’ sincere love of cooking and culinary exploration.” – Saveur

“I’ve had a lot of fun trying the recipes and savoring the tips in this book. The two biggest benefits that I gained from this cookbook were unique salad dressing recipes and some really amazing ideas for tempeh. There’s enough mix ‘n match going on to offer nearly endless possibilities. I love it! I love salads and eat them daily, usually twice a day. The recipes in this cookbook offer a wide range of bold flavor and texture variations. Many of the dressing recipes make about 1 1/2 cups, and they must be used within 2 days. I only cook for myself, so I have to cut the recipes down. I’ve enjoyed all of the recipes that I’ve tried so far, although I had a snafu with a chickpea recipe. Many of the recipes have long ingredient lists, but so far they have all been prepared quickly and easily.” – Hello Kitchen, Amazon
