Whether you are a long-time vegan or you are new to the scene, we could all use a little dinner inspiration from time to time! I wanted to collect some of the most popular cookbooks here so you can continue to expand your mealtime horizons!

Here are the top 5 must-have vegan cookbooks:

1) The Oh She Glows Cookbook, by Angela Liddon

This book comes in response to the ever-popular vegan food blog Oh She Glows which features many gluten-free, dairy-free, soy and processed food-free recipes. Aside from being a mommy and role model to many, Angela Liddon is a self-trained chef and food photographer who has perfected the art of plant-based cooking!

2) Nom Yourself: Simple Vegan Cooking, by Mary Mattern

A beautiful cookbook for the next generation of newly vegan and vegan-curious, from the talented creator of the popular food blog, and Instagram, @NomYourself, Mary Mattern.

3) Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook, by Davis & Holloway

In 2014 Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook debuted as a #1 New York Times Best Seller and it has been a hit ever since. This book delivers more than 100 plant-based recipes for everyone from beginning cooks to home chefs. Oh my, Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos? Pumpkin Chili? Grilled Peach Salsa? You bet!

4) But I Could Never Go Vegan!, by Kristy Turner

An innovative vegan cookbook that refutes every excuse to cheat on or avoid a vegan diet such as giving up cheese and having to eat “rabbit food.” After trying these creative recipes from the blogger behind Keepin’ It Kind there won’t be any excuses, only delicious meals that inspire and satisfy.

5) Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen, by Kathy Patalsky

Kathy Patalsky, creator of the popular vegan food blog Healthy.Happy.Life, makes sure eating vegan is fun and delicious too. Some of her flavor-packed recipes include one for a Vegan Philly Cheese Sandwich, and Ultra Creamy Cashew Veggie Pot Pie! This must-have book also includes a guide to help you veganize your kitchen, cooking techniques for plant-based staples, and wellness tips, making it the perfect resource for both newbie and established vegans alike.
