Hi there,

Id really appreciate your advice! Im vegan for about a year and something and just recetly Ive realised I dont have any nice vegan cookbook.
Since I eat same dishes over and over again I guess I would need some inspiration! Also there are some foods Id like to eat more - kale, dark leafy greens, cauliflower ....- healthy stuff - but I have no idea what to do with it because I dont really enjoy taste of those veggies. I am also trying to eat less oil and salt so I dont want to use miso and soy sauce as much as I do right now.

Do you have any suggestion for a good cookbook? What is your favorite one?

Im searching for one that DOESNT USE MEAT SUBSITUTES like seitan and tempeh because Im not fan of these foods, though I eat tofu from time to time.
I also dont have time for OVERLY COMPLICATED recipes - I need something quick and realatively easy.
I would love recipes that would give me ideas how to use vegetables I normally have at home.

I did some research and I found these book - what do you think of them? Are they worth buying?

Welcome, Marianna!
Maybe you could start by having a look at the threads in this section - those marked with five stars are about the cookbooks that probably are among the most popular vegan cookbooks out there. Good luck!

Hands down, the best cookbook I have is the first vegan book I ever got and it's Easy Vegan Cooking by Leah Leneman. It's really simple, no complicated ingredients and I still use it.

My brother bought me the Oh She Glows vegan cookbook for Christmas and it's excellent. He especially enjoyed giving it, me being a man.
