I will start with mine (gee, it's really the only truly vegetarian one I have too).....the Betty Crocker Vegetarian cookbook. As a new veggie who has no clue about nutrition and zero cooking skills, this is practically a lifesaver.

I think my all time faves are the ORIGINAL moosewood cookbook by Mollie Katzen and "the complete vegetarian times cookbook" with all the recipes from the magazine. I also bought 3 new ones thru my book club last week: crescent dragonwagon's passionate vegetarian and 2 others but have not tried them yet

"Nonna's Italian Kitchen," "Authentic Chinese Cuisine," both by Bryanna Clark Grogan; (as a matter of fact, ALL of Bryanna's books are awesome) "Professional Vegetarian Cooking," by Ken Bergeron; "Incredible Edibles," by Eriann Hullquist; "Ecological Cooking," by Stepaniak and Kathy Hecker; "The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook," by a compilation of cooks.

I love all my tons of cookbooks, but I seem to use these the most often.

Sadiemac, you will love The Passionate Vegetarian. Zeb's Gumbo, although involved, is so tasty you'll flip. The book is so large and packed with info it's almost a little overwhelming.

I love the Garden of Vegan/How It all Vegan Books too, but I find that I keep going back to Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, Mollie Katzen's Vegetable Heaven, and Lorna Sass' Tales From an Ecological Kitchen. I have a lot of cookbooks, but those two are foundational.

i really like how it all vegan. it's simple,easy, and the recipes/ingredient lists are short. i dont own it tho. i own many complex ones that are great but it takes some concentratin to do the recipes.

"The farm" has delicious recipies although they do use white flour I always just exchange it with whole wheat. I just barely bought "The Uncheese Cookbook", I haven't tried it yet but it got outstanding reviews at Amazon. I could not live without "Country Life" I highly recommend this cookbook. Their recipies are easy and delicious. Other cookbooks I own include "The voluptous Vegan", "Very Vegetarian", "The Meditarrenan (definitly spelled that wrong) Vegan Cookbook", among others.

The two I use almost exclusively anymore are Vegan Meals for 1 or 2 and Table for Two. I like them b/c the recipes are easy, yummy, and don't make 12 servings.

I actually have dozens of cookbooks--I don't cook from most of them b/c the recipes are often too complicated or make enough to feed a veg*n army, but I love reading them.

i hate that
there's only two of us in the house but i'm the only veg*n. the hubby and the parrot are devout carnivores (parrot's fave food is chicken
) and even cutting recipes in half is sometimes a problem because of my food restrictions...although i AM trying to convert a couple of co-workers and a friend's mom LOVES my chili and bisghetti sauce (even after she found out they have TVP for 'meat" )

Yeah, only having two in the house is a drag. My husband is always complaining that I need to stop making so many loaves of bread and egg-less cakes. I usually make an 8 x 8-inch cake, eat one slice, and try to pass the rest off on other people (my co-workers work for hunting magazines, so they're not too receptive to food lacking in dead bits). They come out good, and I love cake, but I like making it more than I like eating it. I need to find people to cook for.

kraftykraft:

I just started getting those recipe cards too! So far I love them! I remeber vegetarian times magazine YEARS ago when I was vegetarian the FIRST time. To find it now I had to drive 40+ miles to Tampa to buy a copy...needless to say I sent in the subscription form
It's rough being a vegetarian in the boonies

I just picked this up from the library today. It looks pretty good. Can't wait to try out the recipes.
