Peanut Butter Planet

By Robin Robertson

Rodale / 2006 / $15.95

This celebration of peanut butter comes from a vegan chef, though it includes suggestions for adding meat, milk and other animal products to its 80 recipes. Robin Robertson says that after years of avoiding peanut butter because of its calories and fat, she has embraced it as an alternative source of protein, rich in vitamins and monounsaturated fat.

This compact paper- back includes several tasty-sounding soups. Sandwiches include an open-face peanut-butter-and-tomato broil. For dessert, there's a silken peanut-butter pudding, among other offerings.
