    Just got the new Oh She Glows Everyday by Angela Liddon. Both of her books have great recipes. Will be giving it to Vegan friends at Christmas!

    I didn't know about the Wild About Greens cookbook so thank you Nightshade for the info on that one. I'm ordering it.

    I know I'm strange like this, but I avoided the Oh She Glows book because I don't like the name. I don't consider myself glow-y. I had heard good things about it. I wandered to B&N today and looked at vegan cookbooks. I'm ordering that one too if I like the name or not! :)

    I'm loving the recipes in Vegan Bowl Attack by Jackie Sobon. Recipes are solid and the photos are gorgeous.

    I use a number of recipes from my old, slightly battered Table For Two - Meat and Dairy Free Recipes for Two by Joanne Stepaniak.
    Lots of basic things, some slightly odd in their taking a standard & adding what one would (instant mashed potatoes being one) but some things I have made time & time again ... 'Grandmother's Pepper and Tomatoes' is wonderful ... bell peppers, onion, garlic roasted with olive oil, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar then mixed with chopped tomato, salt & pepper. Ace as a hot side dish, a wonderful addition served cold. Can be used to mix with pasta, top baked potatoes or used to dress up polenta slices.

    Love The Kind Diet, because it allows for an easy transition to veganism:

    I also like The Happy Herbivore Cookbook: [​IMG]

    Books | Deliciously Ella

    I have bought the copy of her first book Deliciously Ella published in 2015. It is a great book that covers all the basics.

    The Veganomicon looks interesting and I can get it on my Kindle/PC but are the recipes made with very easily found items? I live on the Costa del Sol in the winter and if it's not meat or fish, they haven't got it (slight exaggeration). In the summer I'm in the UK on a canal somewhere and it's much easier to get stuff there. I'm also looking at some of the other books. I have lots of vegetarian books and do like Rose Elliot too.

    I like Vegan With a Vengeance. Some of my fave recipes are the pumpkin muffins, basic seitan, BBQ pomegranate sauce, and the udon noodles with peanut sauce. Isa knows how to make great sauce!

    I also like Caribbean Vegan. I haven't cooked much from it, but the homemade Jamaican jerk sauce and the vegan sausage recipes make the book well worth buying. Oh, and her version of split pea soup is also delicious.

    Chef Skye Michael Conroy- Seitan and Beyond

    I've made seitan a bit of a hobby trying different methods and ingredients every couple of weeks. I thought I had it down- then came across his recipe in a free pdf - and realized following directions was better then my winging it!
    If you love seitan, this will take it to another level. He's got some other recipes for steaks, sausages, balls, and loaves and others for incorporating them.

    Here's the pdf download-https://thegentlechef.com/vegan-holiday-recipes-roasts-sides-desserts/

    ^^ I ended up making the veggie burgers from that book, and the texture is better than any other veg burger I've made.
