Best Vegan Cookbooks

A Listmania! list by Nori (San Francisco, CA)
 
How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food
1.  How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food by Mark Bittman
The list author says:
  "Not all-vegan, but it *is* all-vegetarian.  This is the complete reference for *everything* -- want to make a pilaf?  Look it up in the index; you've got your basic definition, recipe, and 5 variations.  Ditto for a compote.  If I could have one cooking reference work on my shelf, this would be it -- it's an invaluable resource of basic techniques, staples, and definitions."

2.  Vegan Planet: 400 Irresistible Recipes With Fantastic Flavors from Home and Around the World (Non) by Robin Robertson
The list author says:
  "The best there is.  Doesn't preach; has a section on EVERYTHING.  You want pizza?  There's a whole section of pizzas.  Also makes a point of using easy-to-find ingredients.  A complete vegan Joy!"

The Voluptuous Vegan: More Than 200 Sinfully Delicious Recipes for Meatless, Eggless, and Dairy-Free Meals
3.  The Voluptuous Vegan: More Than 200 Sinfully Delicious Recipes for Meatless, Eggless, and Dairy-Free Meals by Myra Kornfeld
The list author says:
  "A good reference to have, but more as inspiration than a cookbook.  It says "soak the beans overnight, then cook for 2h" ... just use canned!  Hard-to-find ingredients; take with a grain of salt."

The Joy of Vegan Baking: The Compassionate Cooks' Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets
4.  The Joy of Vegan Baking: The Compassionate Cooks' Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
The list author says:
  "This is the only vegan baking book you'll ever need.  It's simple; it doesn't have crazy ingredients; its recipes are shockingly delicious.  It covers everything: cakes, cookies, quick breads, scones, muffins.  Their scones are the best ones I've ever had, vegan or non-.  Their chocolate cake is the easiest I've ever made and gets rave reviews from my omnivore friends.  So simple!  So delicious!"

The Candle Cafe Cookbook: More Than 150 Enlightened Recipes from New York's Renowned Vegan Restaurant
5.  The Candle Cafe Cookbook: More Than 150 Enlightened Recipes from New York's Renowned Vegan Restaurant by Joy Pierson
The list author says:
  "Not my top reference, since I'm more grain-and-veggies heavy, and this book is more tofu-tempeh-and-protein heavy.  But it's still a solid reference to have on my shelf, and I'm almost always pleasantly surprised when I do.  Their carrot-ginger soup, for example, is dead simple, and amazingly delicious."
$14.73   Used & New from: $0.47

Becoming Vegan: The Complete Guide to Adopting a Healthy Plant-Based Diet
6.  Becoming Vegan: The Complete Guide to Adopting a Healthy Plant-Based Diet by Brenda Davis
The list author says:
  "Not a cookbook, but a complete nutritional guide.  I refer to this book for all my vitamins-"

The Garden of Vegan: How It All Vegan Again!
7.  The Garden of Vegan: How It All Vegan Again! by Sarah Kramer
The list author says:
  "Excellent book, even if the authors are crazy!  (They preach at you about the bunnies, but tell you to get tattoos.)  Lots of great, easy recipes.  A good starter."
$13.49   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (46 customer reviews)

How It All Vegan!: Irresistible Recipes for an Animal-Free Diet
8.  How It All Vegan!: Irresistible Recipes for an Animal-Free Diet by Sarah Kramer
The list author says:
  "The first book by the authors of "Garden of Vegan."  Much more fundamental than their later one; I'd recommend looking through it at a bookstore, but maybe not buying, unless you're a brand new cook."
$12.85   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (177 customer reviews)
