Madhur Jaffrey's Ultimate Curry Bible. I also bought 660 Curries by Raghaven Iyer because I misread a review and thought it was vegetarian, but I haven't had a problem veganising a few of the recipes. My favourite baking cookbook is The Bread Book by Linda Collister and Anthony Blake.

I've been wanting to get "The New Book of Middle Eastern Food" by Claudia Roden (originally published in 1972, most recent version 2000).

I love Middle Eastern food, and feel like this is one of the reference books for that type of cuisine. Plus, the cover is just so beautiful: http://www.amazon.com/The-Book-Middle-E ... stern+Food. It would certainly be more of a challenge than a vegetarian book, but worth it I'm sure.

Have any of you ever veganized from it by chance?


I don't know it, but "The New Feast", a vegetarian book about Middle Eastern Food coming out in september, looks gorgeous too: http://www.amazon.com/New-Feast-Modern- ... iddle+east

I have this cookbook but mainly used it when I wasn't vegan. It is definitely a tomb of recipes. I can't remember how vegan-friendly it was. The only recipe I shared online was this one:
http://tastespace.wordpress.com/2010/10 ... ng-om-ali/
(Not vegan but easily veganizable, methinks)

I don't remember if these are in there, but I liked Arabesque, also by Roden. These were vegan recipes:
http://tastespace.wordpress.com/2010/09 ... chickpeas/
http://tastespace.wordpress.com/2010/08 ... il-rumman/
http://tastespace.wordpress.com/2010/08 ... -couscous/ (non-vegan but the meat could be substituted..)

The Ethnic Vegetarian (African/Caribbean/Native American/Soul Food) - lots of already vegan stuff, but her milky dishes are worth veganizing
Fistful of Lentils (Syrian Jewish) - honestly I mostly cook the already vegan/vegetarian-easy-to-veganize stuff, but I have my eye on some of the ground meat dishes for the future, which would be very easy to veganize
Jerusalem - so many already vegan things anyway
The Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook (Gloria Bley Miller) - what it sounds like, only made a handful of things out of this, but it's a good resource.
Madhur Jaffrey's World of the East
James McNair's Bean and Grains - a very basic bean and grain book with variations about spices, a good resource
I used to have a giant book of pasta sauces, many of which were veganizable, but I can't find it now.

Looking at our shelves I am amazed at how few non-vegan cookbooks there are. I think I actually listed all of the ones I still have!

I looked at Jerusalem at the library but was a bit disappointed to see recipes with fish since I thought it was vegetarian.

The Thousand Recipe Chinese looks Cookbook looks interesting. I have The Chinese Vegan Cookbook which is decent but nothing impressed me up to now.

Plenty is Ottolenghi's vegetarian book. It is good. I was never drawn to Jerusalem, either.

Oh yeah, and the Gil Mark's vegetarian Jewish cookbook, of course.

I am looking up the Madhur Jaffrey curry book! Love curry!

I thought Jerusalem was an omni cookbook? I am interested in it anyway, because of its Middle Eastern slant. I also like that it is a collaboration between an Israeli (Yotam Ottolenghi) and a Palestinian (Sami Tamimi).

Wow that eggplant, tomato and chickpea recipe looks really good. Thanks for posting it!

Edited to add
: There's a new big book of Middle Eastern recipes coming out in November that's vegetarian. I mention it because it sounds like something that would interest some of you:

New Feast: Modern Middle Eastern Vegetarian by Lucy Malouf and Greg Malouf.

Saveur, thanks for the blog links!

LFL, that book looks really interesting, most especially because it seems to incorporate cultural elements with the recipes.

Both books are on my wish list!

Saveur, I've just found more time to explore that website, The Taste Space. It looks amazing. Thank you for linking to it!
