16 New Vegan Cookbooks We Can't Wait to Read in 2019
Vegan chefs are currently creating the most innovative, gorgeous food imaginable. You can experience this deliciousness at restaurants, but it's equally exciting to try vegan chefs' culinary magic in our own homes. And this, folks, is why we've put together a list of the most anticipated vegan cookbooks of 2019.
The staggering number of vegan cookbooks released in the past couple of years has helped usher vegan cooking into the mainstream, and this coming year promises more of the scrumptious same. It's never been easier to do right by animals, the environment, and your health.
Without further ado, here's a taste of some vegan cookbooks that will be released in 2019:
This scrumptious book covers some of our favorite types of cuisine, such as Indian, Italian, Mexican, Vietnamese, and more.
You never knew that your Instant Pot could be used in 75 different ways? This cookbook shows you how to put your favorite gadget to better use.
The author of this cookbook (and owner of the FoMu ice cream shops in Boston) shares her special coconut milk–based ice cream recipe that uses whole ingredients and natural sweeteners. All the recipes are vegan and allergy-friendly.
Restauranteur and chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz releases cookbooks at a rapid pace, each one as consistent as the last. I Can Cook Vegan encourages readers to cook at home more often for the sake of ease, taste, and health benefits.
Some people make the transition to vegan eating by first cutting down on their meat intake. This book of vegan comfort food, created by the mind behind A Virtual Vegan blog, will show those new to meat- and dairy-free eating just how delicious it can be. You'll never look back!
Reading the synopsis of this one is really making us salivate. We're looking forward to trying out Five Lentil Dal with Pumpkin, Hot Plantain Curry with Sugar Snaps, and Lentil Pizza with Vegetable Overload, to name a few.
Sapana Chandra of the Real + Vibrant blog presents her first vegan cookbook. Her bountiful vegan bowls use seasonal fruits and veggies, so you can eat fresh foods throughout the year.
Desserts can be made healthier by using ingredients such as coconut oil, nut butters, and dates. The scrumptious vegan cookies, energy protein bars, cheesecakes, and tarts in this book are all vegan and gluten-free and use no refined sugars.
We're big fans of fast vegan recipes. This new book will supply you with tons of delish recipes for those times when you don't have the energy to prepare a feast.
We're in love with vegan meal prepping and can't wait to get our paws on this lovely tome of recipes. There are hundreds in this book, including Vegan Chocolate Waffles, Pesto Veggie Burgers, Vegan Chicken Taquitos and Chunky Monkey Cake.
New York City's National Gourmet Institute "has graduated more than 2,500 chefs from more than forty-five countries," so it's no surprise that the recipes in this book look stunning. They use seasonal and sustainable ingredients, with a focus on health and healing through vegan eating.
Plucking tried-and-true recipes from her supper clubs, pop-ups, and deli, Ella Mills Woodward will be back with what looks like a strong cookbook in '19. Recipes include salads, falafel, side dishes, one-pot stews, speedy breakfasts, muffins, cakes and tons more. (Available stateside in April.)
You'll want to get your hands on executive chef Suzannah Gerber's guide to cooking restaurant-quality vegan dishes at home, which is no doubt full of wisdom and expertise.
We loved the Salad Samurai in 2014, so we're really looking forward to this sequel. We'll definitely be showing up for this one.
The sweet treats in this "bakebook" are gluten-free and dairy-free and don't use refined sugar. There are also many nut-free and raw options. We're pretty sure that recipes such as Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Slices, Chocolate Fudge Flapjacks and Carrot Cake will make this book fly off store shelves.
This book offers healthy and sustainable recipes from China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.
These books make perfect holiday gifts, especially for those who haven't yet explored the joys of vegan eating.
