12 Must Have Vegetarian and Vegan Cookbooks

12 Must Have Vegetarian and Vegan Cookbooks

I have a huge cookbook collection. Here I share those vegetarian and vegan cookbooks I couldn’t live without!

This post contains affiliate links to help support the website.

My promise to you

Every single one of these cookbooks can be found on my bookshelf. I have two bookcases in my house, one of which is located between the dining room and the kitchen and it is buckling under the weight of cookbooks. The 12 cookbooks on this page (6 vegetarian and 6 vegan) have been my “go-to” cookbooks for quick lunches, healthy dinners, and luxurious dinner party dishes. They are all worn out and sticky from use. I promise they are worth spending your pennies on.

Let me know if you have any other suggestions in the comments below.

Leon: Fast Vegetarian

Leon are my go-to fast food chain when I’m out and about and I LOVE their cookbooks. The Fast Vegetarian makes it on to this list (and the Fast Vegan is very good too).


Another huge compendium of recipes: this time it’s 150 Asian inspired vegetarian and vegan recipes. I love flicking through the pages and coming up with a spice packed feast for dinner.
