this may sound stupid but when i was just starting out (not saying that you are) someone bought me, as somewhat of a joke, Vegetarian Cooking for Dummys. And seriously, that book was really helpful. There is quite a good amount of recipes (not all have pictures but there are about 20 i'd say in a color photo section in the middle, and they're the most delicious ones if I do say so my self) but there is also lots of info and all kinds of good to know stuff Smiley

If you do need pictures though, I don't reccomend Nava Atlas's 5 Ingredient Gourmet, people will sing her praises and rightly so as her recipes are easy to follow and taste great. But no pictures Smiley

I second the Nava Atlas book. Yes it doesn't have pictures, but the recipes are really easy to do. Some are just new variations of old carnivore recipes. They are really simple, not to expensive, and most all ingrediants you find at a regular book store.

haha yeah. i didn't mean to make it sound like a good book cause of lack of pictures. when i need to whip up something fast i often turn to it as most the ingredients called for are ones i can find already stocked in my panty/fridge Smiley

I usually prefer pictures so I dont have to read the entire recipe to figure out what it is going to turn into. But if it is so highly reccomended...

I have a TON of vegetarian and vegan cookbooks.  There is only one that I reach for again and again:

http://www.amazon.com/Vegan-Vengeance-Delicious-Animal-Free-Recipes/dp/1569243581

The author of the cookbook, Isa, also has a lot of free recipes available on her website, http://www.theppk.com/recipes/, and she even has her own vegan cooking show!  You can find the videos on google video here: 

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2339485853386165626&q=post+punk+kitchen&hl=en

In sum, Isa rocks the house.  Check out her vegan cupcake cookbook too.  http://vegancupcakes.wordpress.com

The woman is unstoppable.

Well ... maybe not a cookbook, but I recommend Vegetarian Times (http://www.vegetariantimes.com). They have a mix of recipes from the simple pantry-based to the specialty store types.

Plus, you'll also find good info on green-living and environmental issues, etc. The annual sub is around $20, but I might still have an email for a $9.99 annual sub if you're interested. Email me if you'd like it.

I also like the Passionate Vegetarian by Crescent Dragonwagon http://www.passionatevegetarian.com/. HUGE cookbook but no pictures. However, I like the educational side of things, plus variety between your quick-n-easy and more gourmet. Plus, it has the BEST chocolate cake recipe ... and it's vegan. Smiley

I have vegetarian times, but I find most of the recipes in the magazines require alot of obscure food.

I've been a vegetarian since I was 3, and I have tried a million (or at least 50  Wink) cookbooks and recipes. My personal favs are the Moosewood Restaurant cookbooks.

I have a bunch of them. My favourite among them is Mossewood's Simple Suppers. It's the only one that I own that has photos in it. I too prefer cookbooks like that. I wish Moosewood would print more like that.

If you're just bored enough to read anything, I reviewed a few of them on my blog a while back, and I have a link to their freebee recipes too.  http://nastywench.blogspot.com/2006/11/moosewood.html

I second Vegan With A Vengeance, and I also like the Student Go Vegan Cookbook (There's no pictures, but it's a good one!).
