i have nava atlas' vegan soups and hearty stews for all seasons, and i'm getting great ideas from it, and already have 7 recipes marked. (it's great, i was expecting my dill and parsley to go bad before i use it, but nope, she has those in the summer section. yay!)

but maybe there are non soupy seasonal cookbooks that i can look in? i mean soups are great, but maybe not all the time.

this CSA + garden combo is killing me. (too many tomatoes and zucchinis and onions!!!) and i really would rather not have to go to the grocery store to get anything for a not-particularly-seasonal-recipe.

Do you have Salad Samurai? It's arranged seasonally too!

Atlas' Vegan Holiday Kitchen is grouped by holiday in seasonal/calendar order (except for the Jewish holidays which are grouped together in one chapter).

I like Bryant Terry's The Inspired Vegan, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's The Vegan Table and Christy Morgan's Blissful Bites.

The Blooming Platter is arranged seasonally and Joy of Vegan Baking has an index by season, but I haven't had the occasion of using either of them much yet.

It's more soup, but Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen is arranged seasonally. It's vegetarian, but vegan-friendly.

And, when you're at used bookstores, it's worth looking for a copy of Victory Garden Cookbook. It's not even vegetarian, but it has lots of really creative uses for produce. It's arranged by ingredient.. The book comes from a PBS gardening show, but it's out of print now. You can still look inside on Amazon, though.

There's a super wonderful seasonal (not-recent) book by Peter Berley (sp?) called Fresh Food Fast. It's actually a veg book (includes eggs and dairy), but many of the recipes are either vegan or easily veganized. I really love it.

Afro-Vegan for sure, especially for summer produce (not arranged seasonally, but the recipe ingredients mostly stay within seasons)

Salad Samurai! That one is arranged seasonally.

Agree with above recommendations of Salad Samurai, Vegan Table (my FAVE!), and Afro-Vegan

Absolutely agree re. Salad Samurai. Being heavily fresh produce based, I find the seasonal order really useful. Also, everything I've made has been delicious (the green peppercorn dressing alone has changed my life!). One that's seasonal but vegetarian, not vegan is The French Market Cookbook. There are a lot of vegan recipes, and most are easily veganised. I love French food and use this book a lot.

Good to know that you love Fresh Food Fast. I've been waiting forever for it to be issued in an ebook edition. If it isn't I might have to knuckle down and get it in paperback.

blooming platter, vegan table, salad samurai, inspired vegan...
and i also decided to take a chance on Vegan Rustic Cooking: Through the Seasons, Local Bounty: Vegan Seasonal Recipes, Vegetarian Four Seasons

the only one i didn't get from amazon marketplace was salad samurai (and for some reason it's saying it'll take 2 weeks to ship) i'm considering also getting fresh food fast, since it's $5 on the marketplace. (the other books aren't affordable yet.) although, maybe i won't, since i'll have these 7 to entertain me for a while. on the wishlist it goes.

Ahhh, I have cookbook envy! Also, I had never heard of Local Bounty before, but it looks good.

I've seen Fresh Food Fast at tonnes of used bookstores!

Another dark horse is Bryanna Clark Grogan's The Almost No Fat Holiday Cookbook. Since the holidays are well, held on a certain date, it's pretty much a seasonal cookbook. And don't let the no fat stuff deter you--the recipes are solid!
