500 Vegan Recipes

Subtitled "An amazing variety of delicious recipes, from chilis and casseroles to crumbles, crisps, and cookies," 500 Vegan Recipes lives up to its name. This is a terrific cookbook for both new and tried-and-true vegans. There are recipes to match every mood and every cooking style, and there are ideas here to keep you inspired for years to come.


Chef Bryant Terry is back with another vegan cookbook, this time a fusion of southern, African, and Caribbean cuisines. One of the things I really like about Mr. Terry's books is that so many of the flavors and textures are new to me, so just paging through them is like reading the menus of a dozen new restaurants.

Appetite for Reduction

There are now so many vegans and, more importantly, vegan cookbooks that authors are branching out into other specialties. Appetite for Reduction delves into food that is not only free of meat and animal products, but also low in saturated fat and sugar. But not to worry, there is no corresponding loss in variety or flavor.

Asian Fusion

Chat Mingkwan's Asian Fusion offers a huge variety of recipes from over a dozen countries - as well as a fascinating look at the similarities and sometimes very subtle differences between their cuisines.

Caribbean Vegan

Caribbean cooking is more than just pineapple and coconuts - it's an elaborate cuisine that has been influenced by many different cultures from all over the world. Taymer Mason's Caribbean Vegan offers an excellent overview of this complex cuisine and makes it easy to enjoy authentic Caribbean food wherever you happen to live.
Color Me Vegan cookbook
