Vegan Unplugged takes vegan cooking into the wilds — and also into the power outage, the road trip, and the omni-inlaw weekend visit. This cookbook is a treasure trove of ideas for making tasty, nutritious, resource-conserving vegan meals when you’re out of your normal kitchen groove. With one butane burner and a well-stocked pantry, you can eat vegan gourmet on the road, after the hurricane, in your dorm, or even in your mother-in-law’s guest room!
