The Oh She Glows Cookbook (2014)

A self-trained chef and food photographer, Angela Liddon has spent years perfecting the art of plant-based cooking, creating inventive and delicious recipes that have brought her devoted fans from all over the world. After struggling for a decade with an eating disorder, Angela vowed to change her diet—and her life—once and for all. She traded the low-calorie, processed food she’d been living on for whole, nutrient-packed vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, and more. The result? Her energy soared, she healed her relationship with food, and she got her glow back, both inside and out. Eager to share her realization that the food we put into our bodies has a huge impact on how we look and feel each day, Angela started a blog, Oh She Glows, which is now an internet sensation and one of the most popular vegan recipe blogs on the web.

The Greenhouse Cookbook (2017)

From Emma Knight, Hana James, Deeva Green and Lee Reitelman, the founders of Toronto’s Greenhouse Juice Co., this stunning collection of 100 easy-to-make recipes—50 to eat with a fork, spoon or your fingers, and 50 to serve in a glass—makes eating and drinking more plants effortless. From breakfasts both quick and leisurely to satisfying lunches and weekday-friendly dinners, the recipes in this collection prove how simple it can be to create delicious and even decadent plant-based meals to delight omnivores and vegetarians alike.

Canada’s leading cold-pressed juice start-up company reveals their “secret sauce” by sharing their private recipes for juices, smoothies, nut milks, tonics and cleanses. Delving into the nutritional properties of their favourite plants, and offering easy instructions for homemade plant-based drinks, The Greenhouse Cookbook is a great gateway into the sometimes alienating world of brightly coloured liquids.

The Greenhouse Cookbook offers simple ways to savour the here and now while looking out for a healthy future.

The Korean Vegan Cookbook (2021)

This is the dazzling debut cookbook from Joanne Lee Molinaro, the home cook and spellbinding storyteller behind the online sensation @thekoreanvegan.

Joanne Lee Molinaro has captivated millions of fans with her powerfully moving personal tales of love, family, and food. In her debut cookbook, she shares a collection of her favourite Korean dishes, some traditional and some reimagined, as well as poignant narrative snapshots that have shaped her family history.

As Joanne reveals, she’s often asked, “How can you be vegan and Korean?” Korean cooking is, after all, synonymous with fish sauce and barbecue. And although grilled meat is indeed prevalent in some Korean food, the ingredients that filled out bapsangs on Joanne’s table growing up—doenjang (fermented soybean paste), gochujang (chili sauce), dashima (seaweed), and more—are fully plant-based, unbelievably flavorful, and totally Korean. Some recipes come straight from her childhood: Jjajangmyun, the rich Korean-Chinese black bean noodles she ate on birthdays, or the humble Gamja Guk, a potato-and-leek soup her father makes. Some pay homage: Chocolate Sweet Potato Cake is an ode to the two foods that saved her mother’s life after she fled North Korea.

The Korean Vegan Cookbook is a rich portrait of the immigrant experience with life lessons that are universal. It celebrates how deeply food and the ones we love shape our identity.


Our cookbook is scheduled for release in November 2023 and we’re proud to have it alongside PRH’s expansive repertoire.
