The Art of Simple Food cookbook

The Art of Simple Food

While it isn't a meatless cookbook, The Art of Simple Food is based on something that is entirely compatible with vegetarianism: eating fresh, local, seasonal, sustainable food. As Alice Waters has been demonstrating for decades at her restaurant Chez Panisse, if you start with excellent ingredients, you don't need to spend hours making complicated recipes; you can quickly prepare a simple but delicious meal.
The Meat Lovers Meatless cookbook

The Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook

As you might guess from the title, The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook is not written for vegetarians - or even by a vegetarian - but rather for meat eaters who want to eat some vegetarian meals. Carnivore Kim O'Donnel decided to give Meatless Mondays a try and wanted to make sure that what she was eating was just as tasty and filling as the meat-based dishes she would normally consume. She succeeded.

Vegan Brunch

As far as I'm concerned, brunch is the most important meal of the day, and with a cookbook like this, there's no need to limit it to Sundays. Vegan Brunch offers a wealth of recipes, from classic to outrageous, and I've yet to try one that isn't fantastic.
Vegan Lunch Box cookbook

Vegan Lunch Box

What happens when a vegan mom wants to make sure that her son eats well at school, but worries that he'll feel left out or deprived of all the lunchroom treats his classmates eat every day? Feed him better treats, of course!
Vegan Planet cookbook

Vegan Planet

The super-title of Robin Robertson's Vegan Planet makes a bold claim, promising that this cookbook is "The Ultimate Guide to Meat-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Cooking that Everyone Will Enjoy." Does it deliver? Decide for yourself.
Vegetables Every Day cookbook

Vegetables Every Day

Though packed with information and recipes for dozens of different vegetables, Jack Bishop's Vegetables Every Day is not quite vegetarian. Fortunately, that doesn't prevent it from being an excellent source of meatless meals and inspiration.
Viva Vegan cookbook

Viva Vegan!

Having traveled extensively in Central America, I've spent a lot of time looking longingly at meat-filled pupusas, tamales, tacos, and empanadas, wishing there were vegetarian alternatives. Even refried beans are normally made with lard, so I've never eaten much traditional Latin American food. All that changed with Viva Vegan!
