Our Top Ten Vegan and Vegetarian Recipe Books

If you are giving Veganuary a go this New Year or you just simply find yourself looking for some vegan and vegetarian inspiration, then this list of our top ten recipe books for vegans and vegetarians is a great place to start.

At the beginning of this new year, many of us are taking the time to consider what we eat. We're making resolutions that focus on healthy eating, weight loss or ethical issues (or possibly all three!). Initiatives like Veganuary are encouraging us to try something new. However, if we are new to vegan and vegetarian cooking, then a recipe book can be just the thing to inspire and inform us as we step out on this new meat free journey. Even if we're not ready to commit to an entirely meat free lifestyle, then these recipes can encourage us to eat meat less often and maybe designate a day or two a week as meat free days.
