While I love to make up recipes on the fly, having a good cookbook library can help generate ideas and inspire you to try new things. Here are the vegetarian, vegan and veg friendly cookbooks currently in my arsenal. This page will be updated frequently as I discover new resources (and go through my current bookshelf).
The Art and Soul of Baking by Cindy Mushet
How to Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman
Olive Trees and Honey: A Treasury of Vegetarian Recipes from Jewish Communities Around the World, by Rabbi Gil Marks
Skinny Bitch Ultimate Everyday Cookbook by Kim Barnouin
Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero
Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook by Vegetarian Times Magazine
In addition to these cookbooks, these magazines provide terrific veg recipes. Again, more to come as I explore new publications.
