An absolute favorite which has traveled with me everywhere for 20 years - and I still haven't tried everything in it. If you thought veggie food was bland and boring, try some of these recipes. I'm not a vegetarian, but I often turn to this book just to add more variety to my food. It's my go-to book when cooking for veggie friends, and many times I've cooked huge feasts for hardcore carnivores and they haven't realized until afterwards that they'd just eaten a meatless meal.

A good book that helped me transition into my brief vegetarian phase.

I have a different version, a big t

One of my first vegetarian books. I made soy milk and learned about tofu. It's not full colour pictures but the little illustrations were very informative.
