About the Author

Terry Hope Romero is the author of several bestselling and award-winning cookbooks. Named Favorite Cookbook Author by VegNews, Terry lives, cooks, and eats in Queens, NYC.


Washington Book Review, 3/2/16
"This book is full of great recipes...Protein Ninja will not replace your old cookbook but it will complement all the cookbooks you may have in your kitchen. It not only provides about a hundred tasty, scrumptious recipes but also techniques to improve your cooking by using protein powder to cook what you already cook."

Curled Up with a Good Book, 3/8/16
"If you are seriously into veganism, or want to really bounce around on a protein-induced muscle-building exercise high, this is the book for you. Veteran cookery writer Terry Hope Romero has come up with unusual new recipes to tickle your meatless fancy...With vivid color photos that make every dish look delectable, a handy, kitchen-y sort of size, and a complete food index, Protein Ninja is a must-have for soy-weary vegans, those who like their protein a goodly distance from the cow, and even those new to the whole vegan ethos."

Milwaukee Shepherd-Express, 3/15/16
"[Romero] isn't a militant proselytizer but a vegan author-chef who seems perfectly satisfied if her omnivore readers simply add more plant-based items to their diet."

"[Romero] delivers new and clever ways to make sure we get enough protein...What a great book...The recipes are creative, flavorful and easy to follow...This is cookbook that should be on your kitchen bookshelf.

Whisk and Quill, 3/24/16
"Gives us recipes for every meal of the day. Gratefully they are quick and easy, as well as ethnically diverse. No bored palates. The collection offers plant-based protein dishes that are more sophisticated and creative. One might easily say, gourmet...Romero offers tons of advice on how to easily up your protein intake."

Soul Cycle, 4/14/16
"An impressive collection of perhaps the best high-protein foods for meat-free eaters...Romero's recipes prove suitable for athletes and laymen alike."

T.O.F.U. Magazine, 4/13/16
"This book isn't just for athletes...If you're looking for a boost of protein in your diet or meals, or don't know how to answer that question 'But where do you get your protein?' this book is phenomenal...In addition to upping the protein game, the flavours are what you'd expect from Terry: bold, distinctive, a bit quirky, and addictive."

Portland Oregonian, 4/13/16

"If worrying about not getting enough protein in your diet is the only thing holding you back from becoming vegan, Protein Ninja dispels that worry and provides over 100 protein rich recipes for you to choose from...with gluten-free and soy-free options, too...A really great cookbook if you are wanting to increase your protein take."

InfoDad blog, 3/17/16
"Less talky and less of an advocacy book than many aimed at vegans...Absent here are the cutesy titles to which some recipe books gravitate...This is a book that delivers to vegans just what its subtitle promises: 'a protein punch.'"

Library Journal, 3/15/16
"[Romero] once again shows that protein comes in a variety of forms and can be seasoned any number of ways...Refreshingly, her recipes don't rely on standbys such as tofu and tempeh for every meal...The common ingredients used throughout (ginger, garlic, liquid smoke, etc.) are easy to find...With creative and satisfying recipes, including ones that are gluten free and nut free, Romero's latest is sure to be in demand for eaters of all types, especially those who avoid eating animal products."
