What are yours?

I just bought "Everyday Happy Herbivore: Over 175 Quick-and-Easy Fat-Free and Low-Fat Vegan Recipes". I love that this book includes photos of many of the recipes and is formatted for easy reading.

Some other favorites of mine that I own:

The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Over 100 Vegan Recipes to Glow from the Inside Out

Isa Does It: Amazingly Easy, Wildly Delicious Vegan Recipes for Every Day of the Week

Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook

Forks Over KnivesThe Cookbook: Over 300 Recipes for Plant-Based Eating All Through the Year

The Complete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions: Veganize It! Foolproof Methods for Transforming Any Dish into a Delicious New Vegan Favorite

Going Raw: Everything You Need to Start Your Own Raw Food Diet and Lifestyle Revolution at Home

I am just amazed at the explosion of vegan cookbooks at libraries and bookstores now. And magazines too!

I love Isa Does It, not just for the recipes, but for the style. It's such a fun cookbook.

Veganomicon is so well written, but I don't tend to reach for it to make things (although I plan to try making my own seitan soon, so I'll undoubtedly use it for that.

Vegan Express by Nava Atlas is a little light on pictures, but has a vast variety of fairly quick recipes and includes both menu suggestions AND nutritional information for each recipe.

Virgin Vegan: Everyday Recipes For Satisfying Your Appetite by Donna Kelley and Anne Tegtmeier is new so I've only tried one recipe, but it was absolutely delicious! It also helped me past my fear of tofu at home.

From the library, I currently have 4 Ingredient Vegan by Maribeth Abrams and Anne Dinshah. I don't know if I'll buy it, but I'm enjoying experimenting with it, and their Cuban Black Beans and Hot Rice Cereal are very good. I think it would be a great book for people who maybe haven't cooked a lot, or don't have a well-stocked kitchen. The recipes are short and sweet and tasty.

I'm a vegetarian and I like to try all types of recipes, I just discovered my new favorite vegan cookbooks:

Chloe's Kitchen: 125 Easy, Delicious Recipes for Making the Food You Love the Vegan Way

Chloe's Vegan Desserts: More than 100 Exciting New Recipes for Cookies and Pies, Tarts and Cobblers, Cupcakes and Cakes, and More!

Chloe's Vegan Italian Kitchen: 150 Pizzas, Pastas, Pestos, Risottos, & Lots of Creamy Italian Classics


The author is Chef Chloe Coscarelli, she has photos in all her books and gives really good tips. She takes the foods we normally eat, and makes really simple substitutions to make them vegan but still taste good. It really made me rethink what you can do with vegan recipes, amazing! I recommend trying her recipe for Pasta Carbonara, and she bakes Shiitake mushrooms to replicate bacon. She even has a recipe for Crème-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes, which is a vegan version for Hostess cupcakes.

I agree! Every recipe of Chloe's that I've tried comes out delicious!

I do like Chloe.
I love Robin Robinson--1000 Vegan recipes I own
I've never really been a fan of Veganomicon. It's hard to read and I just think it over complicates recipes
I like Appetite for Reduction much better
I also like Happy Herbivore

I really like the Tempeh Cookbook by Dorothy Bates. I ran across it at my library and bought a copy at Goodwill online. The recipes are really well written in steps and can be made with tofu, seitan or often beans in place of tempeh

Right now I really enjoy these:

The Taco Cleanse, by a group of self-proclaimed Taco Scientists. Funny, but delicious.

Salad Samurai, by Terry Hope Romero. I like everything she writes.

The Homemade Vegan Pantry, by Miyoko Schinner. I'm having LOTS of fun with this and filling my freezer.

One Dish Vegan, by Robin Robertson. All of the recipes I've tried have doubled as lunches for work the next day. Tasty.

I have been enjoying Teff Love which is an Ethiopian vegan cookbook by Kittee Berns. I have been eating Ethiopian food for a while now and decided to learn how to cook it as a new year resolution. I have learned a great deal about spices that I did not previously use.

"The Homemade Vegan Pantry" by Miyoko Schinner - INDISPENSABLE... this has been my very favourite and very most used/loved book since becoming vegan, and remains so to this day :D

All of the Thug Kitchen cookbooks - not every recipe is a knockout, but many are good solid, and approachable and the books are hilarious... when I first went vegan, my husband wasn't but he got a kick out of reading the books, and now he's vegan too ^_^

"Isa Does it" - another huge fan of this book and of Isa Chandra Moskowitz here - <3 her!

"Vegan Bowls" and "Aquafaba", both by Zsu Dever - great recipes but also a great jumping off point for ideas to build on making your own recipes ^_^ I often find myself modifying the recipes, sometimes a lot, but always with great results, and that actually says a lot about how good the recipes are.

"Seitan and Beyond" by Skye Michael Conroy: I have his "Non-Dairy Revolution" as well... he is a scientist and an artist, and while many of his recipes are time consuming and seemingly complicated, they are actually really easy to put together, his instructions are flawless, and the results are consistently amazing <3 I love making his recipes when I want to learn something new, and when I want to impress myself or someone else LOL.

also, special shout out to the blog "It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken" - every single recipe this lovely human being publishes is fantastic, and she has her first book coming out this year. I happily preordered it the first day ^_^

Um...:think: oh, ok. Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World by Isa Moskowitz, Vegan Chocolate by Fran Costigan and Vegan Chocoholic by Philip Hochuli, The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick Goudreauo, (WHAT??!! It's not my fault I have a sweet tooth the size of the Milky Way Galaxy) the Thug Kitchen cookbooks, The Garden of Vegan by Tanya Kramer and Sarah Barnard, Veganomicaon, Isa Does It, The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook, all by Isa (and Terry), Vegan Holidays by Nava Atlas...That's all I could think of for now. Trust me, there's more.
