5 [amazing] vegetarian cookbooks

today i'm going to share some of our favourite vegetarian cookbooks.  since we do a lot of cooking at home, b and i both love discovering new books and new recipes.  you could say we are a bit cookbook obsessed!

b and i enjoy a wide variety of food - from indian to italian, the basics are the same: (relatively) simple to prepare, nutritious, and delicious.

in no particular order, here are the 5 vegetarian/vegan cookbooks that we both love at the moment:

oh she glows
by angela liddon

this cookbook is amazing!  seriously, one of the go-to books for our household.  in her cookbook angela liddon offers creative, easy to make meals that taste (really) good.  this book offers creative, easy to make and well balanced meals.  i love how she incorporates proteins and nutrients into every dish (i can single-handedly thank her for my newfound love of pepita seeds and avocado!). another amazing part - the author is from southwestern ontario as well, so you know the ingredients can be found in your area.

favourite recipes - quick and easy chana masala, garlic pan seared tofu, present glo bars (her signature recipe)

the vegetable cookbook: from earth to table

this is another really great vegetarian cookbook that offers hearty, healthy vegetarian dishes.  the handy thing about this book is that it is sorted by vegetable category, which makes finding a dish quite easy (especially if you get a little too carried away at the farmers market one day!).

favourite recipes - carrot upside-down tart, spaghetti with fresh pea pesto and fava beans, and potato fritters with onion and tomato relish
