In her latest cookbook, Veganize It!, Robin Robertson shows us how to easily make vegan versions of non-vegan food.

In his new book, Vegan Mexico, Soul-Satisfying Regional Recipes from Tamales to Tostadas, Jason Wyrick takes us on a culinary journey throughout Mexico, opens our palates to the amazing array of flavors that are found here, and shows us how to bring those flavors to our plates. Vegan Mexico is more than a cookbook in the sense of a collection of recipes, it’s a study of the cuisine of a country.
