I have been a vegan for nearly 3 decades. I have many favorite cookbooks. Here are some: Vegan Planet-Robin Robertson, Passionate Vegetarian-Crescent Dragonwagon, Very Vegetarian-jannequin Bennett, The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen-Peter Berley, Professional Vegeterian Cooking-Ken Bergeron, The Mediterranean Kitchen-Donna Klein, Cafe Max and Rosie's-Max and Rosie Beeby, Nona's Italian Kitchen-Bryanna Clark Grogan, 150 Vegan Favorites-Jay Solomon(love these recipes but I always double the amount of beans and increase veggies and decrease the liquid by at least a cup, sometimes 2, since we like hearty stews rather than soups), Recipes from an Ecological Kitchen-Lorna Sass(this was the hardback. It has been re-issued in paperback with a different name. Great pressure cooker recipes and directions).
