Hey, I'm a little curious about this because I have a bunch of cookbooks (and I still buy some) that are not vegan but I still cook out of them because they have a lot of recipes for like side dishes that are vegan. Or, I'll take the main recipes and try to veganize them because it's fun. Like, I have Michael Symon and The Neely's cookbook (from the Food Network) and have made and veganized recipes out of both with pretty good results. I also like Gillian McKeith's recipes books even though they are not all vegan. Once I was at the store and found this book all about salads and I bought it and it has great recipes in it and it was smaller and cheap. What about all y'all?

totally pretty much go with vegan cookbooks, so there's no guesswork. With baking, it's much more of a science than cooking is.<br>
On the flip side, I subscribe to a ton of cupcake baker's sites, that aren't vegan to at least get ideas that can be veganized ( just wrote vaginized ....oops!) and flavor combinations from. also love looking at the pictures <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

"The Complete Book of Vegetable Cookery" from 1962. I rarely make anything from it because it's hard to veganize, but it's interesting to browse now and then.... as a time capsule of the period. Apparently one couldn't appreciate vegetables back then unless they were soaked in animal broth, bathed in butter, or covered in cream or cheese.<br><br>
"The Household Searchlight Recipe Book" from 1938. I haven't made anything from it yet. It was my grandmothers and it's filled with her handwritten notes and recipes she clipped from magazines during the 40s-60s. It's an entertaining read and a fav for sentimental reasons.

It has loads of vegetable and pulse recipes, as well as meat and fish, many of which (especially the meat ones) can be adapted. Lots of recipes for spice mixes too.
