I am always on the lookout for more recipes for my kids. These cookbooks will be great additions to the books we already have. Thanks so much !!!
Serena S. says
Thank you for this helpful list!
Thanks for compiling this list. I use to be a vegan, now I will do eggs; certified humane from Whole Foods, and shellfish, mainly shrimp. I suppose I really shouldn’t though because of the humane issue. Oh and I never so no to cake.
Jo-Ann Brightman says
You have an amazing collection. it is going to be hard to choose which one/ ones to buy.
First off, let me say I don’t cook because it’s fun and I enjoy it, I cook to eat. As a devout carnivore I find non meat dishes to be challenging to consume at times, at least when they are made in a healthy way. Having said this, clearly people love the recipes here and as they say, there’s no accounting for taste.
These cookbooks sound great, I’d love to try the The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Over 100 Vegan Recipes to Glow from the Inside Out and the Street Vegan: Recipes and Dispatches from The Cinnamon Snail Food Truck. Thank you for sharing this great list of cookbooks.
I’m not vegan but these look great

barb stenby says
i have a few of these now i shall check out some new ones!
I’m not vegan and largely vegetarian – I’m familiar with some of these cookbooks and they are great! I want to check out the others, too. I like making many vegan recipes – you can enjoy them even if you aren’t vegan or vegetarian! Also, I like to make my own seitan, hummus, “cheesy” kale chips, etc., and vegan cookbooks often show more DIY recipes.
Thank you fot sharing your recipes and books w uh us.
