I would like to find a vegan cookbook, that contains easy recipes, i.e. ones with few ingredients, and ingredients that most non-vegans are likely to have in the house. not things like tofu or seitan kinda things

Is there such a thing?

i like vegan feasts

lots of quick easy recipes, a few more jazzy ones, and most of them use bog-standard ingredients you can get anywhere. its the book i lend to omnis when they can't figure out what to feed me!

looks like a hard book to buy around here, but it looks like it's in my library! and the reviews look like just what I'm after!

thanks so much!

Table for Two is very simple and yields good results, but it does have some tofu recipes. I strongly advise to try tofu in some recipes. It's readily available in most supermarkets these days, and it can be made into many delicious dishes from appetizers to desserts. I couldn't live without it!

the Accidental Vegan is a great book. It does use tofu in some dishes, but I find it to be very quick and easy. Lots of legumes, beans etc. WIsh I could remember the author...

World Vegetarian isn't vegan but most of the recipes are if you skip the dairy chapter and/or modify things a bit. It doesn't call for fake meats or any other funky substitutes although you might need to get the extra spice or two. The sections are arranged by main ingredient and it will give you plenty of things to do with a variety of vegetables, legumes, grains, nuts and so on.
