My favorite vegetarian cookbook is this old tattered oddball one I found in a store discount rack that actually had very simple recipes. Also, the PETA College Student Cookbook is a good one, though I wish there were more pictures of the finished product so I knew if I was doing them all right. ha ha!
Vegetariana was my first meatless cookbook. I’d checked it out from the library and liked the info she gave inside so much I decided to buy it. After that, I’d say Color Me Vegan is a good informational book about the importance of eating from every color.
