Chock-full of #instaworthy recipes that can be made in a snap, PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook: 275 Easy, Cheap, and Delicious Recipes to Keep You Vegan at School is the perfect gift for current or soon-to-be college students ready to nuke their way to vegan bliss. The 2016 edition of the hit cookbook, first released in 2009, has gotten a brand-new look and contains 40 new dorm-friendly recipes that can be whipped up in the microwave—including the Walking Taco and the Chocolate Chip Hug in a Mug—in addition to all the classic favorites, including the Eggless Egg Salad, Sticky Buns, One-Bite Pizzas, and many more.

“Whether they’re coming home for the holidays or setting off for school next semester, PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook is the perfect gift for any dorm dweller,” says PETA Senior Director of Youth Outreach and Campaigns Marta Holmberg, who is also the cookbook’s co-author. “In less time than it takes to cram for finals, students can make tasty tacos to cram in their faces, whip up pancakes to cure a 2 a.m. craving, and concoct dozens of other delicious meals.”

The book also includes a crash course on what vegans eat, advice on how to stock a vegan kitchen on the cheap—with a cheat sheet that lists plant-based meats, eggs, and dairy foods and where to find them—and a foreword by PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, not to mention a rave review from the likes of celebrity chef Chloe Coscarelli, who says, “Thanks to PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook, you don’t have to be a master in the kitchen to make delicious vegan food!”

peta2—PETA’s youth division, whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that more college campuses than ever are offering vegan meals as interest in plant-based eating continues to skyrocket nationally. Sixteen million Americans now identify as vegetarian or vegan, and FoodNavigator-USA reported last year that 36 percent of U.S. consumers either prefer dairy-free milks or use vegan meats.

PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook can be purchased on the PETA Catalog, on Amazon, or at Barnes & Noble. For more information, please visit
