>So many cookbooks…!

Posted on


I have a lot of cookbooks. I try not to play favorites, but Charlie Trotter’s RAW has the most gorgeous photographs and seriously doable delicious recipes. As far as creativity goes, I think 500 Vegan Recipes is wonderful, closely followed by Veganomicon; the main difference being that the recipes in 500Vegan Recipes are healthier and most come together quickly, whereas I find myself using Veganomicon to impress people. Do you guys have recipe recommendations from these books (any of them)? What’s your favorite thing to make? I would especially like recommendations from Vegan Planet, Yellow Rose Recipes and The Kind Diet, but all suggestions are welcome. Is there any book I’m missing that I just must have-besides the upcoming Vegan Crunk southern cooking book?

About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.
