The musician, writer, and animal rights activist’s new vegan cookbook boasts of  125 delicious plant-based recipes to  “wow even the hardest-to-please meat lovers”.

Vegan icon Moby – a passionate animal rights advocate – is set to release a new vegan cookbook.

The Little Pine cookbook named after Moby’s former restaurant will debut on 7 September.

It features around 125 plant-based recipes inspired by the Los-Angeles based bistro’s most beloved dishes.

 Little Pine aims to “wow even the hardest-to-please meat lovers” with its Mediterranean-style vegan and organic recipes like panko-crusted piccata, fennel flatbread, fried cauliflower with kimchi aioli, asparagus & peas, lemon poppyseed pancakes, go-to pastas like orecchiette with braised leeks, and chocolate chip cookies.

All proceeds from the book will be donated towards helping rescue animals.

“It is my plan to give away any and all profits that I make from the sale of the book,” Moby wrote in a post on Instagram.

“Working to create a world wherein animals are allowed to live their own lives, free from human interference, is my life’s work, and I could never look at veganism as a way to personally profit.”

 Activist Moby

Moby has been a passionate animal rights advocate ever since he had an epiphany at the age of 19 while playing with his cat Tucker. He has been a vegan for more than 30 years.

According to the musician, working for animals is ‘more important to him than dating, than a career, than health’.

However, Moby’s clarion calls promoting veganism haven’t always been appreciated.

He was recently slammed for saying there would be no pandemics in a vegan world.

The 55-year-old faced backlash for his post on social media which read: “A reminder: in a vegan world there would be no pandemics. 100% of pandemics are zoonotic in origin.”

Many slammed the musician for what they described to be a ‘grossly anti-indigenous post’.

However, Moby clarifying his stance told GQ: “It comes down to an issue of nomenclature. People think vegan means eating vegan food.

“And I meant it in the broader sense of not using animals for human purposes, and not encroaching upon animal habitats.

“It’s hard for a college dropout musician to argue with a PhD. [laughs] But how do you explain that in a nuanced way? So I just let it go.”
