If I didn’t have a husband and kids, I’d love to be eating macrobiotically. These recipes bridge the gap between macrobiotic cooking and more mainstream vegan cooking—my husband finds them a little plain but sometimes gentle, plain, simple cooking is okay (and the desserts are great). These recipes are a little more flavorful than Pierello’s earlier cookbook Cooking the Whole Foods Way

I have the earlier edition (Great Good Desserts Naturally) from 2000.

One of the few Nepali cookbooks out there.
Madhur Jaffrey, 2002
If you want something more edited, At Home with Madhur Jaffrey contains Jaffrey’s favorite and somewhat simplified recipes from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka (what she grew up eating and cooks at home).

Another kid-friendly vegan cookbook that is vegetable centric. Yes!

While my kids might shy away from some of Deborah Madison’s “let the vegetables shine” recipes, they’ve been much more open to eating from this cookbook and Veganomicon, where the vegetables are generally more integrated into a dish. I’ve had a lot of fun cooking with Jasper from this cookbook. The ethnic cooking techniques incorporated in the recipes are impressively right on too.
Deborah Madison, 2013
I’m a Deborah Madison junkie (also love Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, Local Flavors, Vegetable Soups, and Vegetarian Suppers) but this one is my favorite right now. I feel like I’m getting a cooking lesson straight from Deborah every time I use it.
