15 Best Vegan Cookbooks 2023 from Bosh! to Deliciously Ella

Vegan cookbooks are a big part of any journey to going vegan. If you’re following in the footsteps of some of our favourite celebrity vegans and giving the plant-based life a whirl, bravo. Whether it’s a diet-related choice or you’re going vegan to help the planet, we seriously salute you.

Of course, even the most confident of home chefs might be thrown when there’s an absence of meat, fish and dairy products in their fridge for the first time – and it can be tricky to know how to cook plant-based meals that are nutritionally balanced and genuinely tasty.

Likewise, if you’re a seasoned vegan who is bored of making the same old vegan recipes on repeat, you’re probably itching to refresh your culinary repertoire.

Investing in one of the best cookbooks is a good way to help you feel inspired and get you started with some simple recipes. That said, we’re the first to admit that most plant-based cookbooks aren’t actually that great. There’s more to the vegan diet that just sweet potato, tempeh and chickpeas, trust.

Hence why we tasked ourselves with finding some genuinely epic publications packed full of deliciously sinful desserts that don’t break the rules of your lifestyle choice, fakeaway-style dinners featuring vegan substitute superstars and easy feasts that can be whipped up in under 20 minutes. These delicious vegan cookbooks have got it all on offer.
