The Vegetarian Family Cookbook by Nava Atlas, hands down. Nearly every recipe is vegan or has a vegan option (which is usually unheard of in books labelled 'vegetarian'!), and every recipe I've tried has been a success! The instructions are easy to follow and there aren't any 'weird' ingredients like you encounter in some veg cookbooks. And I also appreciate the embellishments, etc that are offered- most recipes contain a "for picky eaters" section, which explains how to break down the meal for younger eaters, a "embellish it" section, to jazz things up for more mature palates, and a "make it a meal" section, which suggests dishes it's paired well with. It makes meal planning easy, hehe. EDIT: Also, I really appreciate that all the baked goods are *tasty*, low-sugar/fat, and whole-wheat. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

It doesn't have any bread recipes, but that's what the internet and old family recipes are for, right?<br><br><br><br>

Seconded! The recipes are mostly easy and the book itself is fun to read. Everything is delicious and totally worth the time to make. What makes it even better: there is an active internet forum run by Isa Chandra Moskowitz (the author) over at <a href="http://www.theppk.com" target="_blank">www.theppk.com</a> where you can get pictures and feedback on almost all the recipes..

When I looked it up on Amazon, there were currently 62 reviews of that book there. Of those 62 reviews, all but 2 reviewers gave it 5 stars. And even the two who did not give it 5 stars acknowledged that they thought highly of the book. So I doubt I could possibly go wrong ordering it. But I need something else to go with it to go over the $25 mark so I can get free shipping. Ive been eyeing <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%2Fgp%2Fproduct%2F1557883599%2Fref%3Dpd_sim_b_5%2F103-2339740-2555817%3F_encoding%3DUTF8%26v%3Dglance%26n%3D283155" target="_blank">The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen</a> for awhile; does anybody have this book, and would you recommend it?

I don't have <i>The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen</i>, but it is always highly recommended by people on vegetarian/vegan messageboards. Just do a search for it on VB and I'm sure that you'll find threads with people talking about it.

I love The PPK forums. It's so helpful to have all sorts of people give you advoce and tips on recipes.<br><br><br><br>
I've looked at The Meditarranean Vegan Kitchen at the bookstore and everything looked amazing! I would have purchased it myself if I had the money. Maybe next paycheck. . .

Persoanlly, I love the Vegan with a Vengence, cuz the recipees are REALLY good. The PPK is life....<br><br>
....But if I had to use one for the rest of my life, it would be Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet by Nava Atlas. Like the Vegetarian Family Cookbook, she has everything either vegan or with a vegan option. I like it because it's tight on money around here, and all the recipees are 5 ingredients or less, and take like 20 minute to make.
