I think i'm falling into the trope of just cooking what I would eat when i ate meat/dairy only using vegan replacements, which isn't how i imagined my diet to be after going vegan. I want to discover new recipes and food that i can't compare to things i used to eat but i really never cooked with legumes and lots of veggies before. i am proficient in the kitchen but just need new recipes to follow, are there any widely appreciated cookbooks that are worth picking up? or websites/blogs? many thanks!!! xx

Hello & welcome.

I like Rose Elliot's books as her recipes are quite simple to make.

Bosh also has some original recipes and their own YT TV channel :


We also have a section called Favourite Food Blogs on the other forum :

I'll give you a list at the end.

I've never been a big fan of having a lot of books at home. (although somehow I do).

When I was a senior in HS (and the spoiled youngest son, and never having made anything more complicated than a sandwich) my mom starting taking the time each week for life lessons. I learned how to cook, grocery shop, and do the laundry. Part of my cooking lessons was being gifted with a 3X5 index card file. I would write down a recipe from one of my mom's cookbooks and then cook it. She even sent away for some free recipe cards from Campbells (who remembers Cream of mushroom pork chops?) to give me a jumpstart. I think I got my first cookbook that year. It was a collection of all the recipes found on the back of boxes and cans. Oh, shoot! I still have both the little box and the cookbook, Favorite Name Brand Recipes. I really need to throw some stuff out.

As a college student who moved something like 12 times in 6 years, I started hating moving books. And to this day I try to just borrow books from the library and not buy them.

Sorry for the digression. The only point I wanted to make is: go visit the library and see what they have there. If you really like the book you can buy it later. or you can just copy out the recipes you like. And put them in a little 3x5 file. or type them up on the computer and make a folder for them.

That being said, these are my four favorite vegan authors, (who also have websites are):
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau,

Issa Chandra Moskowitz
http://www.theppk.com
Chloe Coscarelli
http://chefchloe.com
Angela Lidden
http://ohsheglows.com

Good Reads has at least one list of Vegan Cookbooks

And Amazon has one too.

There are some terrific vegan cooking channels on YouTube. We have a couple of threads on YouTube Vegans. But this one is just recipes
