I recently bought the cookbook “Vegan on the Cheap” by Robin Robertson. The cookbook is geared to those who are on a tight budget but want to eat healthy and fresh foods. The cookbook has recipes for almost everything you want to eat: soups, stews, salads, pasta, burgers, desserts, and more. The first part of the book offers tips on budgeting and eating for less.

So far I’ve tried about half a dozen of recipes and have liked all but one. The recipes are pretty simple to make and rarely require ingredients you won’t already have on hand. As a time-crunched student, I really liked the fact that the recipes don’t require me to be constantly monitoring the food.

My favorite dish so far is the Farfalle with White Beans and Cabbage. It is simple, delicious and very inexpensive.

While this is a great cookbook, it is not perfect. I was not a fan of the Stovetop Cheezee Mac. I can’t place exactly why I didn’t like this recipe, but there was something missing for me.

Overall though, I highly recommend this cookbook. The recipes are good, easy to make, and really lives up to the title. Nothing in this cookbook costs more than $2.00/serving.
