21 Best Vegan Cookbooks of 2016
This is #TheYearOfVegan and the proof is in the vegan pudding. Vegan food blogs are everything, new restaurants are opening left and right, and chain restaurants are offering more vegan options. Equally important is the fact that more and more people are enthusiastically partaking of this vegan explosion.
Recently, we've seen the release of many vegan cookbooks. This is super-exciting, because sometimes it's nice to peruse an actual book (not the Internet) while looking for a recipe and be untethered from the computer while preparing a scrumptious meal.
Here are our favorite cookbooks from this year so far:
1. Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking
2. PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook
This book is chock-full of simple vegan recipes for the student on a budget (or anyone else interested in affordable vegan meals!)
