Some of my favorite cookbooks are Vegan with a Vengeance, La Dolce Vegan, Garden of Vegan, Vegan Planet, and Vive le vegan. Don't be scared off by all the "vegans" in the titles.... I think these are great cookbooks for ANYONE looking to incorporate more plant-based meals in their diet, whether they're vegans, vegetarians or omnivores. Vegan food also happens to be 100% vegetarian.
There are lots of vegan and vegetarian bloggers with food blogs (including myself). They could help you with meal ideas.
