I would like ideas of vegetarian cookbooks to buy. So far I only have one: "The Vegetarian Gourmet's Easy Low-Fat Favorites". I love it, but I need more.<br><br><br><br>
Any suggestions? Whenever I look in the bookstore it seems like most of the vegetarian cookbooks are either very complicated gourmet cooking or else are too high in fat for me.

How about "1001 Low-Fat Vegetarian Recipes"<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2Ftg%2Fdetail%2F-%2F1572840323%2F002-0872090-4274415%3Fv%3Dglance" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...74415?v=glance</a><br><br><br><br>
I have this one. while it's not my favorite cookbook, it has some *great* recipes in it. It's standard "american" cooking, meaning that hardly any of the recipes contain weird ingredients (like tamarind - LOL)<br><br><br><br>

I also have this book, and if you are lacto-ovo, it would probably be a great resource for you. The lacto-ovo recipes look pretty yummy and easy. But it has a ridiculously small number of tasty sounding vegan recipes, so I don't really use it.<br><br><br><br>
Also, I have the Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook and it is great. It offers nutrition facts for all the recipes, so you can evaluate how well they meet your needs. I have liked everything I've tried from it.

I have two wonderful suggestions for you!!! My favorite cookbooks are:<br><br><br><br>
The Almost No Fat Cookbook: Everyday Vegetarian Recipes by Bryanna Clark-Grogan<br><br><br><br>
and<br><br><br><br>
Everyday Cooking with Dean Ornish: 150 Easy, Low Fat, High Flavor Recipes by Dean Ornish<br><br><br><br>
These both have tons of vegan recipes!! Everything I have tried has been easy and yummy. They aren't lacking flavor at all. I highly recommend them both.<br><br><br><br>
Also, check out <a href="http://www.fatfree.com" target="_blank">www.fatfree.com</a> for a ton of very low fat recipes. I've had great luck with just about all that I have tried.<br><br><br><br>

Thanks for the suggestions!<br><br><br><br>
I am familiar with <a href="http://www.fatfree.com" target="_blank">www.fatfree.com</a> and I've made many delicious recipes from there. But I do prefer a "paper" cookbook.<br><br><br><br>
I have borrowed Everyday Cooking with Dr. Dean Ornish from the library and copied out a few recipes. I think I've only made two recipes, a minestrone recipe plus blueberry muffins (I love how low in sugar they are -- I make them often and everyone likes them).<br><br><br><br>
I will look for 1001 Low fat Vegetarian Recipes and The Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook and the Almost No Fat one.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

All of the McDougall books are either extremely low-fat vegan or completely fat free vegan.<br><br><br><br>
Remember too that you can always saute in veg stock and forgo the oil, that way you can use any regular old recipe you'd like.

Yup, I do that too. But I like recipes that are already low fat with the nutritional info all figured out already.

I got myself a copy of "1,001 Low-Fat Vegetarian Recipes". You're right that it's mostly lacto-ovo, but that's fine by me. I have made a long list of recipes to try. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
What's weird is that a few of dessert recipes have gelatin in them...

Moosewood has a low fat cookbook that is amazing. And Weight Watchers actually has a great cookbook called Versatile Vegetarian.
