If so, please share. I have several vegetarian cookbooks that I enjoy. I have yet to find a vegan cookbook though that I just can't live without. I have a couple of books by Robin Robertson that I love.

My favorites change! I've been loving Chloe Coscarreli's, Chloes Kitchen lately

Appetite for Reduction- Isa Moscowitz

I definitely love Robin! I have 1000 Vegan Recipes

I get Coleen Patrick Godreaux (sp) from the library


Favorite way to get new and different insights?

Go to, look up vegan cookbooks, and check all the "look inside" features!
Not only have I gained recipes, but it helps me know which to buy!

Like Isa's Vegan Cookies Invade your Cookie Jar!

Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook, by Jo Stepaniak


It's something I use now and then, but wouldn't want to be without. Easy and good recipes for making all the feta, chedda, creeem cheze, and sour creeem so you don't have to pay the stupid price for ready made!


This one could sit next to it one day:

There's a "look inside" on it, and looks very promising!

Silva's got good taste!


Chloe's Kitchen and Colour Me Vegan by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau would be my top recommendations. They are both books that use simple, ordinary ingredients that you don't need to go shopping at a health food store for. And they are delicious!! My mom who is not vegetarian LOVES Chloe's Kitchen and it has gotten her eating a lot less meat.


I also agree though that Appetite for Reduction is another great book and has some recipes that have become quick, go-to staples in our house, like the caulipots/broccopots.

Another vote here for Chloe's Kitchen, that book owns me. It's worth buying for the avocado pesto pasta alone drool.gif

Any of Colleen's books and also The High Energy Diet Recipe Guide by Dr. Douglas Graham.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I will see if my library has any of these titles. My library is usually pretty good. I did check out How it all Vegan. It looks good. Simple and straightforward. I like that. smiley.gif

I have several favorites.  Tofu Cookery, Vegan With a Vengeance, The Joy of Vegan Baking, The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook and Vegan Planet.  I mostly use recipes from the internets, though, as I find the reviews very helpful. smiley.gif
