Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cashew hemp goddess dressing

    • louie734 on June 10, 2020

      GOOD. Half recipe makes a perfect little mason jar. Sunflower seeds for cashews, omitted chives so added 1 t dried minced onion to soak with seeds. Seemed like it would need something but DIDN'T. Nice n thick after refrigerating - perfect for a dip or sandwich spread - but thins easily with a squeeze of citrus or dab of water.

    • patioweather on February 06, 2024

      Delicious and heart healthy.

  • Black bean hemp brownies

    • Goodwolf on July 18, 2020

      These are the most chocolatey brownies I’ve had. Wonderful flavor. There’s a grittiness to them that isn’t great but it’s a small issue.

  • Early bird scrambled tofu

    • patioweather on November 19, 2023

      Do I want chickpeas? Do I want tofu? How about both. This makes a lot, and it improves (supposedly) by sitting before cooking, so it is good for a mostly make ahead breakfast.

Publishers Text


I wanted protein recipes other than 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 for 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.
