i'm still waiting for a great vegan cookbook. not just passable... one that's really worth the money. did any come out in 2013 that i just can't pass up? seems a lot of vegan cooks are heading to self-publishing and e-books, and going for blogs.
i'd take good vegan blogs too - as an alternative. my personal fave is yumuniverse.com.
i'm not a vegan, but i love knowing all i can about making a plant-based diet taste great without animal products.
I read a lot of veg*n blogs- i don't have much feedback for a cookbook.
Some great blogs for recipes are:
Post punk kitchen is really well known, isa has several cookbooks as well
Oh she glows, her avocado pasta sauce is a favorite:
Fatfree vegan kitchen (old name, recipes are not fat free
Lunch box bunch is a good resource:
Choosing raw- her salads and salad dressings are all great, but some recipes include obscure ingredients
101cookbooks is not veg, but does have a good selection of veg*n recipes or ones that are easily adapted
The popular Vedge Restaurant in Philadelphia came out with cookbook this year. All the restaurant menu items are in the book. I'm so excited causes Philly is too far and too hard to get a reservation at the place. I can now make the amazing dishes myself. The cookbook is cheaper on Amazon
I love Manjula kitchen's youtube video's, easy way to learn how to cook Indian food. Manjula is jain vegetarian so i add garlic & onions. Another Indian blog I like is Richa, she converts Indian dishes to vegan. http://www.veganricha.com/
Isa Does It. Vegan Eats World. Pies & Tarts with Heart. Chloe's Great Desserts. Bake and Destroy. Nut Butter Universe.
I tend to get more milage out of non-vegan cookbooks. I make my own modifications where needed.
Never been a big Deborah Madison fan, but her new cookbook "Vegetable Literacy" (not entirely vegetarian) is beautiful and has some promising looking stuff in it.
If you don't have it already, Fuchsia Dunlop's "Every Grain of Rice" (came out before 2012, but US edition was released in 2013) has a ton of great dishes, many of which happen to be vegetarian or vegan.
I have "Plenty", but haven't used it much.... I find a lot of the recipes a little bit complicated / fussy for everyday cooking, though I know it has gotten great reviews. I found it a little bit dairy-heavy too.
Curious to know what some of people's favorite recipes from Ottolenghi's cookbooks are, especially ones that are vegan or easily adaptable.
