I have a metric ton of vegan cookbooks but the ones I probably use most are: Fresh From The Vegetarian Slow Cooker, Veganomicon, The Saucy Vegetarian (great, uncooked sauce recipes), and anything by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. Great list you've got going! veganfeministagitator.blogspot.com

I was not offended by Skinny Bitch. I think they made some truthful point. It made me think twice as so many people that are over weight hate people who are skinny but we can learn from them. We have choices and the book opened my eyes. I must say the book inspired me to become a Vegan!! My grandson who is only six years old wants to be a vegetarian/Vegan too. He does not like eating meat. My sister, who was living with me for awhile, made the mistake of making dinner for my grandson one night and saying "Joshua do you want a chicken leg?" He started to cry and would not eat a thing. He said he was crying for the poor chicken. I thought it was so funny. He takes after his Grandma. Oh well, God bless everyone

Your friend,
Sheila

I love anything by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. All her books have tips on cooking, fun quips, and delicious recipes to impress.

I look to Veganomicon for recipes that I want to 'class up' when I'm cooking for non-vegans.

Vegan with a Vengeance is great for simple and tasty recipes.

Vegan Brunch is great as well, with all the muffin, 'sausage' and waffle recipes, among other things.

The Cookie and Cupcake books have recipies so amazing that you probably shouldn't buy if you have bad self control.

I do have many others, but Vcon, Vengeance and Brunch are the first books I go to when I'm looking for something satisfying.

I am reading "Becoming Vegan" by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina right now. Both are registered dieticians and the information is very balanced. A good cook book is "A cookbook for all seasons" by Elson M. Haas, M.D. There are recipes for homemade vegan sour cream, mayo and crackers.

My favorite Vegan cookbook of all time is Vegan Planet. It has a great intro that made it super-easy for me to make the transition--it tells you what the best meat and egg substitutes are, how to get enough protein, what you should stock in a vegan kitchen, what organic means....

Anyway, it's in-depth, and there are about 400 recipes in the book, and all of them are unique and delicious diet staples! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to become vegan or wants to be a healthier vegan!

I have a mega-ton of vegan cookbooks, many of which have already been mentioned, but I'll throw in my 2 cents and say Urban Vegan by Dynise Balcavage and 1000 Vegan Recipes by Robin Robertson (yes, there are 1000, and every one I have tried so far is great!). Urban Vegan is also a blog and you can see photos & reviews of recipes from 1000 Vegan Recipes on the blog Cooking from 1000 Vegan Recipes. Happy vegan eating!

Skinny Bitch made me angry. To me it was terribly offensive and terribly written.
The authors could have made the same points without being crass and using bad language. I threw the book away after half-way through.
It is not the sort of book that a mother of daughters wants to have around the house.
Again, I do not disagree with their stance, I simply think they could have been a whole lot nicer about expressing themselves.

Actually "Skinny Bitch" was the book that got me into seriously thinking and starting to be come vegetarian. I can't say I'm fully a vegetarian as of yet since I've just started like this month! lol. But it's the book, that made it click.

The recipes in the back of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn are what made it possible for me to go vegan. They use ingredients that you DON'T need to get from a specialty store. They are quick and easy to make. They are delicious. They are healthy! I have a lot of cookbooks (and this isn't really a cookbook) and this one is the best. (Yes, it's a relatively small group of recipes, but I haven't gotten bored yet.)

The book is a good read too - if you have heart issues, it is very interesting - and if you don't have heart issues, it is interesting too!

Then, to keep up your commitment to this way of eating, read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. Tells you WHY you want to eat vegan.

Also, Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman has a lot of recipes and a lot of info.

I hope someone will make a list of the books recommended. I've been on the computer too long... ;)

I too really like The Conscious Cook by Tal Ronnen. I have made the Roasted Tomato Bisque and loved it. So flavorful!!!! For the Creamy Texture he soaks cashews overnight and then rinses and blends them, gradually adding water until you get the look of heavy cream. You blend batches of the soup, then transfer back to the pan and add a cup and half of this heavy cream looking blend. So delicious!!!

Try it, He has a recipe using celery roots using this creamy blend to. Haven't tried that one yet but will soon and let you know. Oprahs favorite recipe from the book.
Enjoy

Hi!
Thank you for the great recommendations. I went to work at my library (I'm a YA Librarian) and took out Veganomicon. I made the Black Bean Burger recipe for dinner and enjoyed. My library didn't own Vegan with a Vengeance but the review said that teens would enjoy this so I'm ordering this for my YA section.

I love THE ENGINE 2 DIET book. Fun eating and good reading. Recipes that work for real firemen (or anyone), who are striving to improve their cholesterol levels and lose weight while gaining muscle and stamina. The author, a former Olympic athlete, is a great role model for fitness and health too. And the book is based on sound evidence-based nutrition principles.

I HIGHLY recommend a book called "The Conscious Cook" by Tal Ronnen. He is a leading vegetarian chef whose goal is to offer the most savory and attractive food that is hard to identify as vegetarian. It's perfect food to convince "non-believers" than vegetarianism is not just eating tofu and sprouts. I also highly recommend "The Kind Diet" by Alicia Silverstone. It is more than just recipes, and has a lot of good info the U.S. Food Industry campaigns hard not to let consumers hear about. It is PERFECT for someone thinking about dipping their toes into vegetarian waters.

If you want to turn the man in your life on to vegan eating, "The Engine 2 Diet" is a good way to do it. (It did it for me!) It's a good book for men, I think. It makes eating vegan seem like a very manly choice to make, because here you have this firefighting author who is fit and healthy and eating vegan.

But I did have an issue with the recipes at the end of the book. Obviously the author must work out vigorously and can afford some extra calories without gaining, because some of these recipes were more like something you would make for a fancy dinner or something---rather than "diet" food! They weren't always low calorie. Some recipes have too many ingredients and are time consuming.

I wish he had just had simple recipes at the end of his book (as most men tend to like things simplified). The recipes were (for the most part) too elaborate and time consuming for me.

However, sometimes his male mentality came through...like in the dessert section when he simply suggested eating a low fat chocolate bar as a "recipe"! Ha! Gotta love that!

Thanks for the great suggestions.

I've been enjoying CLEAN FOOD : I'm about to make the thai black beans w/mangos for the second time. The recipes are simple, approachable, and the ingredients are not too expensive.

I also recently found some fun recipes in VEGAN SOUL KITCHEN - the collard greens with OJ and raisins were great.

And don't forget to check out the public libraries! The ones around me offer a huge cookbook selection.

Also check out The Vegetarian Family Cookbook by Nava Atlas. It's full of helpful suggestions for easy meals and how to dress things up. It's also great because it gives a breakdown of nutrition information and offers vegetarian/vegan option for anyone making the switch over.

A friend of mine got me La Dolce Vegan for a b-day a few years ago. It is a good one, lots of the normal stuff I like to eat but in vegan form (I am a vegetarian but not vegan) and majority of the recipes are pretty simple to make.

Oooh-- I also just bought the Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen...yum.

Favorite Vegan Cookbooks:

Vegan Planet
Candle Cafe Cookbook
Vegan with a Vengeance
Vegan World Fusion Cuisine

These four have consistently excellent recipes. Vegan Planet and Vegan with a Vengeance are good for every day and quick cooking. The other two (from Vegan restaurants) have more complicated and time-consuming but really special recipes.

Good luck to you!

Never give up.

Hi Everyone:

I wrote a few recommendations roughly 10 days ago and am happy to see that there are so many wonderful books out there for vegetarians and Vegans.

My husband and I went to a very tiny macrobiotic restaurant close to our home just last week.
We didn't even know this sparkling gem was even there. IT IS that small.

Talk about nutritious, nourishing and delicious food, lovingly made - buffet style.

A couple of people who were dining there recommended the following books to me, which I wanted to share with all of you:

"Aveline Kushi's Complete Guide to Macrobiotic Cooking: For Health, Harmony, and Peace", and

"Christina Pirello: Cooking the Whole Foods Way"

I am happy to know that vegan cookbooks are available for cookies, cupcakes, etc... but, for me, at this time, I don't want to travel that road.

It wouldn't be good for me to bake anything like that because more than likely, I would consume most of it - (if not all). The pictures on the cookbooks are enough of a temptation for me.
When it comes to foods like that, I have always been compulsive and addicted.

If I am craving a cookie or a scone, etc..., I am satisfied in knowing (Thank You God!) that I can get one or two at Whole Foods. It hasn't always been this way. I am blessed to have a very supportive husband.

Wishing all of you a blessed and beautiful Sunday!

Denise

I am reading "Eating Animals" by Jonathan Foer right now and talk about LIFE CHANGING. It is a MUST READ.

I am also reading "The Kind Diet" by Alicia Silverstone. I would definitely say that it seems less fact based but it's still a really great read.

I began eating Vegan about 8 months ago. The book I recommend is called "This Crazy Vegan Life" by Christina Pirello. It helped me understand what eating Vegan was all about, gave tips,it is full of recipes and even have a few exercises. God bless you!

My favorites:
the joy of vegan baking

Fresh from the vegetarian slow cooker is awesome! it has great crockpot recipes and any that are not vegan can be adapted - everything I have tried turns out great and not mushy at all.

the fat free vegan blog is awesome. she has 2 sites of recipes. On her blog: blog.fatfreevegan.com/ and on her regular site. fatfreevegan.com/
There is actually a section of recipes on each link.

I also like the vegan lunch box for easy recipes. she has a blog that is not as active and several books.

These are what turned me:

"Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease". Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D.

There are some really good recipes in the both of the Esselstyn books :)

I agree! I love my cookbooks, but I've been leaning towards blogs as well, partially because I like to see what the food is supposed to look like before I attempt it. My current fav is http://veganmenu.blogspot.com/ . They don't always post recipes, but they're friends with Isa Moskowitz, so you get to see the recipes that she's "testing" for new cookbooks. I love it!

The Joy of Vegan Baking is great. Some of my other favorites include The Chicago Diner Cookbook, Ecological Cooking (out of print, but you can still find copies being resold online), Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and Easy Low-fat Vegetarian Recipes. I prefer vegan cookbooks as I've found that most vegetarian cookbooks use cheese in almost every recipe.

Hi, it's wonderful to see that there are so many Vegan publications out there. I have several of them in my cookbook library.

Vegan Lunch Box Cookbook, Vegan Hearty Soups and Stews, Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and Vegan Brunch are some of my favorites along with Vegan Dad's blog. Really anything by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romano is gold.

I love Veganomicon as well, and just received Joy of Vegan Baking for Christmas...although I haven't baked anything yet. I don't cook much (or well!) but when I want to find something I usually just google vegan recipes and check out vegcooking.com But I second the blogs, a variety comes up when I google and they have great recipes. Good luck in your vegan cooking adventures! (My problem is the when I cook vegan foods poorly, people assume its the vegan food, and not my cooking skills!)
