This is a collection of my very favorite, entirely vegetarian cookbooks. Many of these are vegan friendly, but if you’re interested in an entirely vegan cookbook be sure to check out my list of the best vegan cookbooks.
I’m a firm believer that a good cookbook should have lots of pictures. I don’t quite trust someone who isn’t going to show me the food up front. That being said, a few of these don’t have much for pictures but make up for it in quality, trusted recipes.
I love all these cookbooks, but if you prefer getting recipes digitally don’t forget I have an ebook for Easy Vegetarian Dinners for sale. It’s a collection of some of my favorite dinner recipes from the blog in an easy to read, ad-free format.
If you’re just starting out, you can also check out how to become a vegetarian, the vegetarian meal planning workbook, and the vegetarian starter plan meal plan.
The Best Vegetarian Cookbooks
How to Cook Everything Vegetarian
This totally goes against my must-have-photos rule, but Mark Bittman is a treasure to be trusted. While not literally a recipe for everything, this is my go-to when I just need fresh ideas or forgotten recipes.
Martha is also one to be trusted at all costs. She knows how to make everything, so why wouldn’t her vegetarian cookbook be a winner?
The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook
This would be a great one for beginner vegetarians because America’s Test Kitchen works hard to craft fail-proof favorite recipes.
The Vegetarian Flavor Bible
This is less a cookbook and more an idea starter. This is great when you’re ready to venture out into creating your own recipes because it gives you flavor combinations
Love Real Food
If I’m being honest, and I am, this is my favorite on the list. Kathryne’s taste just totally suits me. It’s not very often that I open a cookbook and want to try EVERYTHING. She also has a popular blog, Cookie + Kate.
Pretty Simple Cooking
Alex and Sonja (who also blog at A Couple Cooks) have created a cookbook that is approachable, beautiful, and all about the love of food.
Yes, another blogger cookbook. Shelly blogs at Vegetarian Ventures, and this cookbook creates a literal and visual feast. I love how it’s organized by adventures such as brunch or camping.
The High Protein Vegetarian Cookbook
If you struggle to find vegetarian protein to round out your meals, this is obviously the one for you!
The Runner’s World Vegetarian Cookbook
This is a great one for athletes who are looking to cut out meat. Lots of healthy, hearty recipes.
Good Housekeeping Vegetarian
You can trust Good Housekeeping to help you get a healthful, appetizing, vegetarian meal on the table fast.
One last blogger cookbook from the author of the blog My New Roots. It’s full of bright photography and recipes to fit any budget, any day of the week.
Be a Plant Based Woman Warrior
This book focuses on the abundance of eating a plant based diet, which is often, but not always, vegan. If you’re looking to cut out meat as well as dairy, this is the one for you.
If you’re vegetarian and gluten-free, this book offers a simple solution to complete meals, only one bowl required.
