Cover Price: $19.95 Hardcover

Although there are hundreds of cookbooks out there with decent recipes for vegan and vegetarian diets, 1000 Vegan and Vegetarian Meals: Everyday Recipes to Make Healthy Eating Easy, by the editors of Chartwell Books stands out as one of the best, due to the fact that it contains not only excellent recipes, but also photographs of almost every dish.

For those of you who aren’t vegetarian or vegan, this book has plenty of great side dishes that can be served with meat, poultry, or fish. And although that isn’t the main purpose of this book, it’s a fact nonetheless. Many of the dishes included will make you forget that you aren’t eating animal products. The recipes are easy-to-follow, and most include ingredients that are easy to find. Ingredients include lots of nuts, dairy and non-dairy cheeses, tofu – of course, and vegetables, fruits, and whole grains – everything healthy.

The salad section of this cookbook is impressive; there is a salad to accompany almost everything. There are also breakfasts, soups (lots of them and they are mouthwatering), “grazing” dishes including dips and fun appetizers, quick dishes, breads, pastas, pizzas, burgers (untraditional, of course and meatless), curries, and comfort foods. There are also some pretty awesome desserts.

One of the best parts about this cookbook is that there are flavors borrowed from every part of the world: Asia, Europe, America, Middle East, etc. Variety is very helpful for those who are trying to keep strict dietary laws, and there are enough different flavors in the recipes that boredom won’t be a problem.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
