Some of them will be more traditional, whilst others will be more exotic and adventurous. Whatever you’re in the mood for, we’ve got it right here.

We’ll also provide a brief description of each underneath, so that you can see which one appeals to you the most right away. 

To find out more, simply keep reading below, as we take a closer look.


Now, we’d like to start off our list with this absolute gem of a cookbook that we think that you’re all going to absolutely adore.

This one is perfect for those of you who are trying to transition to a plant based diet, but you’re finding it super hard because of your unyielding love of meat.

Well, you won’t feel like you’re missing out one bit once you pick up this cookbook, as it’s got some of the tastiest vegan recipes in town. 

Pinky Cole has garnered more and more attention as time has gone on, and this was all prompted by her first cookbook termed, The Slutty Vegan.

If you’re somebody who adores super luxurious, and junk food based vegan recipes, then we think that you’re going to love this one.

There are also lots of photos packed inside, and the instructions are incredibly easy to follow, which makes it a great vegetable based cookbook for beginners. 

Cole even has her own restaurant in Atlanta now, so make sure that if you’re in the area that you call in, as it’s got rave reviews from all of its customers (Also check out Female Chefs In Atlanta We Adore).


If you’re somebody who’s finding it difficult to make a transition between a meat based and vegetarian based diet, then don’t worry, you’re not alone.

The author of this book, Jenny Rosenstatch has been through the same journey of adding more plant and vegetable based foods into her life.

Her whole family decided that they were going to cut the meat, and as a result, this led Jenny on a journey where she was determined to create a real life plan, with lots of tasty recipes along the way to make the transition easier. 

The result was this amazing cookbook that we have today (see also "Amazing Paula Deen Cheese Pie Recipes To Try Today"). It features a total of 100 delicious recipes that cover breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks too.

The best thing about this book is that it’s tailored towards beginners, so if you’re a complete novice in terms of cooking exclusively with vegetables, then you have to pick this one up. 

It’s got delicious recipes that cover a wide array of different salad, casserole, and soup based dishes.

One of our favorites however, is the super tasty cauliflower mac and cheese recipe that Jenny provides.


When it comes to transitioning to a diet that’s more heavily based on vegetables, Mexican food night is one of the most difficult ones to find alternatives for.

If your family is anything like ours, then we look forward to nothing more than chowing down on a hearty bowl of chili once a week, or a batch of mince meat loaded nachos. 

Finding vegetarian based Mexican recipes can be incredibly difficult, let alone ones that are considered to be totally authentic. Thankfully, that’s where this amazing cookbook comes into play.

Here Margarita has compiled 400 (that’s right) recipes that you can choose from on your next Mexican family food night. 

She provides a whole bunch of different recipes that cover breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You won’t get bored either, as the sheer amount of recipes contained within this cookbook will keep you inspired for many, many months. 

Lots of the recipes contained in this cookbook are actually vegan and gluten free too, so they’re suitable for all of our plant based friends out there too.

They’re super wholesome and tailored towards all skill levels too, so whatever cooking stage you’re at, this cookbook has got you covered. 

We think that you’re also going to love the vibrant photography contained within this cookbook, as each dish really pops out from the page, and catches your eye.


If you’re looking for a cookbook that will provide you with some super hearty, plant based cooking, then you’ve come to the right place.

This cookbook has some of the tastiest and most filling recipes in town. 

Some of you might recognize the book’s author, Tabitha Brown.

Tabitha rose to fame during the 1990’s with her acting career, and in recent years she has become a motivational speaker on Tik Tok, where she continues to inspire lots of young people in all aspects of life. 

In recent years, however, Tabitha was diagnosed with a mystery illness that led her to take a hiatus from social media and her acting career.

Tabitha was on the search for answers, and this led her to adopt her new plant based diet that she continues to follow to this day.

She found that following a plant based diet significantly alleviated her symptoms, and she thanks it for her wellness today. 

She wanted to share this with all of her followers, and what better way to do this than with a cookbook?

Tabitha’s cookbook contains a whole host of recipes that are guaranteed to leave you feeling satisfied.

Most of it is soul-food based, and as a result, there are lots of hearty dishes contained inside which are perfect for the winter season. 

You don’t need to be vegetarian or vegan to enjoy her recipes, as you’re guaranteed to adore them regardless. We think that our favorite recipe is the jackfruit pot roast, which is simply to die for.


Some of you reading this list might be on the hunt for a super easy to follow cookbook that isn't too elaborate in terms of ingredients.

When you’re switching to a recipe that’s exclusively composed of vegetables and other plant based ingredients, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed.

The amount of ingredients required in some vegetarian and vegan recipes out there can simply be too much, especially if you’re just getting started on your journey. 

If you want something that’s much less stressful to get stuck into, then we’d recommend that you take a look at this title, called Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking by Dana Shultz.

The best thing about this cookbook is that each recipe only calls for a total of 10 ingredients at the very most, so you won’t feel overwhelmed during the cooking process. 

Many of the recipes listed here also ask for the same ingredients multiple times, so this is great in terms of sustainability, and excluding waste in the kitchen.

In addition to all of this, many of the recipes included by Shultz are one-pan dishes, so you won’t have as much washing up to do at the end of it all either! 

Final Thoughts 

To sum up, although it can seem overwhelming transitioning to a vegetable based diet, things become far easier once you’re accustomed to a few good recipes that you can turn to.

Whether you’re on the hunt for some classic dishes that you can make everyday, or you’re seeking out something that’s a little bit more adventurous, there’s a cookbook out there for you. 

We hope that our list has provided you with the inspiration that you need to get cooking today.
