This small, tattered book is the creation of Ellen Ewald, whose experience in cooking well-balanced, nutritious meals without meat was an inspiration to Francis Moore Lappé and a confirmation that her ideas were practical. The resemblance of the title to Diet for a Small Planet, then, is not coincidental. It was written to demonstrate the rich possibilities in a natural, high-protein, but meatless diet—possibilities that could only be intimated in Diet for a Small Planet. You might say Diet for a Small Planet tells why we should reduce/eliminate meat intake while Recipes for a Small Planet shows how. As with Diet for a Small Planet, the recipes are meatless, but many use eggs and dairy products.
I have just learned that Recipes for a Small Planet is still available on Amazon.
