Harrifer Just get the Hare Krishna book of vegetarian cooking if you like Indian food, it's the best.

jeneticallymodified i would get something like this:

or this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Student-Vege..._sim_b_title_4



or this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Students...pd_sim_b_img_6



or this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/VEGETARIAN-N...d_bxgy_b_img_b



basically a student vegetarian cookbook. cookbooks designed for students assume the following:



-you know absolutely nothing about cooking

-you haven't got all day to muck about with silly technical things

-you're broke

-you don't have a cupboard full of swanky utensils, tools and appliances

-you want food thats tasty and relatively healthy, but doesn't taste like hippies made it.

-you want a range of stuff from day to day meals, to party stuff, and swanky things to impress potential lovers and visiting parents, plus everything in between.



i find these assumptions very handy.

Duke Nukem Keep an eye open for the book "200 Green Recipes" by Slimming World. I got mine via a charity shop but I believe you can still buy it new (its a very low cost book too).



It's not marketed as a veg*n book, but almost all the recipes are vegetarian and I dare say quite a few would be vegan too. The recipes are submitted by many different people so there is a good variety plus they tend to be the simpler recipes that are just right for cooking when you get home from work.



TTFN,

golfgti16vgrey thanks for the suggestions, the first ones a vegan one i'm really looking for veggie. i'd really like to find an up to date book, i'll check out waterstones when i go in town.



meanwhile, i found this link to food in season:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/in_season/june.shtml

surely this has got to be a good approach to cooking?

write down the list of in season food and go from there?

i'm guessing in season food will be in abundance in the supermarkets , be local , and shouldnt cost too much???

i despair when i see some recipes and write a massive list of ingredients and try to find them all in the supermarket. half of them i cant find and the other half are flown in from across the globe, it all seems like the wrong way to go about it.

Lentil Burger Not sure if this totally fits the bill, but this book was my bible for many years. Lots of extra info on foodstuffs and nutrition:

And this book is a really handy, practical guide for planning veggie meals as a single person:

vheogl Veganomicon seems like a pretty good book for the basics. It's quite comprehensive with some different ideas too.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Veganomicon-...2613658&sr=8-3



If you can't order online get your local bookstore to order it in for you.

golfgti16vgrey are there any recommended cook books which include the basics of cooking as well as some recipes?



i'd definitely like one which includes basic techniques so i can get a grounding in the subject as i feel thats important, but also some recipes to show what can be done when everything comes together.



there's the usual waterstones, wh smith in my town so if anyone can suggest a good book to buy, one they have enjoyed themselves, that would be great!
