How to Choose a Vegetarian Cookbook – Buying Guide

There are many vegetarian cookbooks available, making it challenging to find the best one for you. Keep the points below in mind to help you find the best option! We also reached out to Jacqueline, who has been a vegetarian since 1995, for expert insight.

Make Sure to Pick a Book That Fits Your Skill Level

Make sure to consider your experience when choosing a cookbook. Are you a beginner in the kitchen, or are you ready for a culinary challenge? 

Versatile Cookbooks Cover All Meals for Beginners

Versatile Cookbooks Cover All Meals for Beginners
If you’re looking for something beginner-friendly that you can reach for any time of the day, it’s best to have a cookbook that covers more than just one type of food. This holds especially true for new vegetarians that are learning to plan out meals and balance their diet.

Look for a book that covers everything, from breakfast to snacks to dessert, so that you will have your bases covered when it comes to daily meals. This style of cookbook often includes tried-and-true recipes with clear directions. For extra guidance, look for recipes with step-by-step photos.


A large, general cookbook will also let you explore different recipes, letting you see what types of dishes and techniques you enjoy. After all, as a beginner, it might be best to have too many choices than too few. With a shorter cookbook, you may struggle to find something that appeals to your palate or suits your lifestyle.

If you are going to something like a potluck or celebrating a special meal, you want to have some specialized cookbooks on hand to find some recipes for those events. If there’s something you really want to specialize in, you want to make sure you have a cookbook just for that topic.

More Specialized Cookbook for Non-Beginners

More Specialized Cookbook for Non-Beginners

If you already have the basics down, you may not need a general cookbook with basic recipes and techniques. Instead, we recommend choosing options that focus on a meal, cuisine, or cooking method


This will allow you to improve your skills in one area, like if you want to master using a slow-cooker or learn authentic Indian recipes. Choosing one focus may also be more practical, depending on your lifestyle. For example, if you usually only cook dinner or often crave homemade dessert. 

Find a Book With Accessible Ingredients and Information

For a lot of people switching to a vegetarian diet, the biggest concern is ensuring that meals are well balanced. It’s pretty simple to do, especially if you get the right cookbook.

Search for a Book that Provides You With Essential Nutrients

Search for a Book that Provides You With Essential Nutrients

One of the biggest concerns people have when going vegetarian is getting all the nutrients, like protein, their bodies need. For peace of mind, you can look for a cookbook that includes nutritional information about a vegetarian diet in general or for each specific recipe.


Some vegetarian cookbooks seem more like side dish cookbooks. Since you're getting all of your nutrients from plant fare, you will need more than that. So you want to look for a cookbook that includes recipes hearty enough to stand alone as a main dish. You can confirm this by looking at page previews and reviewer comments. 


There are also options dedicated to specific nutritional needs and diets, like gluten- or dairy-free. Even if the book isn't centered around a certain diet, it can be helpful to see if they include ingredient substitutions for common allergies. For example, substituting eggs with applesauce or mashed bananas in baking recipes.

I ensure my family is eating well by trying to incorporate meals that offer a good source of whole grains, served up with a lot of fruits and vegetables. We aim to get a variety of nutrients by eating different types of vegetarian foods. 


Having a healthy vegetarian protein source is important, so we like to have dishes that include beans, quinoa, lentils, tofu, nuts, or some vegetarian meat substitutes.

Look for Seasonal and Locally-Available Ingredients

Look for Seasonal and Locally-Available Ingredients

There are a ton of vegetarian ingredients that might sound interesting, but if you can't find them, then you won't be able to use them! So make sure that the cookbook you choose has things that you can find at your local supermarket or farmer's market.


Some unique ingredients may be purchased online, like nutritional yeast. However, uncommon produce, like enoki mushrooms or ghee, may be more challenging to source. 


Since produce loses nutrients over time, look for locally-grown or frozen options. They both will have the highest amount of nutrients, unlike fruit and veggies that have been shipped fresh across the country. Some balanced frozen veggies may have slightly less nutritional value, but most frozen produce doesn't have any nutritional difference. 

Look for Seasonal and Locally-Available Ingredients

Another thing to consider is seasonality. While most fruits and veggies are available year-round thanks to air transport, there will still be times when it’s hard to find certain items. 


So it might be good to search for a cookbook that has recipes that are seasonally appropriate or contains recipes for fall, summer, winter, and spring. If it doesn't mention seasonality, make sure that the recipes use a diverse range of produce so that you will always have something to cook.

You are likely getting more nutrients, better tasting food, and lowering your carbon footprint by opting for foods that are more in season. Produce will often taste better the closer to home you purchase it, plus you can speak with the farm regarding their practices using chemical fertilizers.

The down side to sticking to seasonal produce or foods grown closer to home is that you will limit yourself to, naturally, the seasons. Balancing it, by opting for mostly seasonal foods and including a few other items here and there, is a good way to go.

If You're Short on Time, Look for Quick and Simple Recipes

If You're Short on Time, Look for Quick and Simple Recipes

If you find yourself rushing around, you're going to need recipes that you can make fast. Look for cookbooks featuring recipes you can make in under 30 minutes or with only a few ingredients. This will save you the frustration of flipping through a regular cookbook looking for something quick and easy.


It's also helpful to see if the book offers meal planning, giving you a grocery list that includes everything you need for a week's worth of recipes. This can save you time shopping and prevent food waste.

Being able to have quick recipes—such as for casseroles, soups, and pastas—is important for those who are busy or just transitioning to vegetarianism. Also, it’s a great idea to have at least one good vegetarian crockpot cookbook in your collection so you can get the ingredients on in the morning and then it’s ready in the evening. 

Consider a Book That Teaches You Techniques and Flavor Theory

Consider a Book That Teaches You Techniques and Flavor Theory

If you’re new to cooking, it might be a little difficult to just jump into a recipe. To help you along, look for a cookbook that includes information on techniques. Learning basic knife skills, how to use appliances, and food safety will help your recipes taste their best. 


Even if you’re comfortable in the kitchen, new vegetarians may benefit from a robust informational section. It can be challenging to make flavor pop with vegetarian ingredients, so look for insight into learning how to build flavor without meat.


This extra information on flavor theory will also help you understand why the recipes taste good, allowing you to make your own creations in time. For example, the author may teach you how to pair flavors or what cooking methods are the best for each ingredient.

If you are a visual learner, you can start with the info in the book and then log online to find a video of someone demonstrating the technique. I’ve found technique information in cookbooks and in online videos to be very helpful in learning how to prepare various things. 

Focus on a Specific Cultural Cuisine for Coherent Flavors

Focus on a Specific Cultural Cuisine for Coherent Flavors

Cutting out meat doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on your favorite cuisines! Choosing a cookbook that focuses on one cuisine is an excellent way to try vegetarian versions of cultural dishes you grew up with or try something new from another culture. 


This also helps you create meals with coherent flavors, giving you all the recipes you need to make main dishes, side dishes, and desserts with complimentary flavor profiles. These focused cookbooks may also teach you the techniques not found in general cookbooks, like making your own tortillas or how to use a bamboo steamer.

The cooking techniques are similar, but the ingredients you use in ethnic foods often vary. It can be fun to try a new ethnic recipe and learn the ingredients. And whether you liked it or not, you at least expanded your horizons and tried something new

See if It Can Accommodate the Meat Eaters in Your Life

See if It Can Accommodate the Meat Eaters in Your Life

Although you are a vegetarian, you may still be cooking for people who eat meat. It may be helpful to consider cookbooks with recipes that will appeal to meat-eaters. There are ways you can fry and season tofu so that it’s as succulent as meat, but it can take practice to pull off.


You might want to approach fake meats with caution. While you might have acclimated yourself to them, some people may find them off-putting. However, plant-based meat has come a long way, and some omnivores may like the familiarity of a burger


One of the key things that people love about meat is its hearty, savory flavor. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to achieve that with vegetarian ingredients! Consider a cookbook that focuses on umami flavors, like mushrooms, cheese, dried tomatoes, and fermented vegetables.

Jacqueline (VegBlogger)

When serving meat eaters, I stick to something that is simple and they can understand and relate to. Serve things they are used to eating, but make those dishes vegetarian. Then, as they become more used to those flavors, start to incorporate things like tofu, mock meats, etc. 


Even if they never completely go vegetarian, they will most likely increase their intake of vegetarian meals, which is a great thing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Becoming a vegetarian takes a little extra effort, and sometimes questions make pop up. Check out our frequently asked questions below to learn more about eating a plant-based diet! 

Can vegetarians eat eggs?

Yes, vegetarians can eat eggs. Most vegetarians eat certain animal products that don't contain flesh, like eggs, milk, and cheese. This is what sets vegans apart from vegetarians, as vegans eat nothing derived from animals. 


Lacto-vegetarians only eat plant-based foods and dairy. So, if you don't want to eat eggs, you would be a lacto-vegetarian. Lacto-ovo vegetarians eat dairy and eggs


Some vegetarians may not want to eat eggs that have been fertilized since they have to potential to become chickens. However, most eggs at supermarkets are unfertilized

How do vegetarians get protein?

There are a ton of ways to get protein on a vegetarian diet! Simply incorporate protein-rich ingredients into your daily meals. Some of the highest sources are seitan (wheat gluten) and soy products like tofu, tempeh, and edamame. Tofu, seitan, and tempeh are great as meat replacements. 


Other excellent protein sources include lentils, beans, seeds, nuts, and quinoa. If you are ok with animal products, cheese, yogurt, and eggs are also protein-rich. 


Suprinsgly, some veggies contain a good amount of protein! Green peas, potatoes, sweet corn, spinach, and Brussels sprouts all have a few grams per serving. Drinking milk, either dairy or not, is another easy way to add protein to your diet.

Are vegetarian diets healthy?

Vegetarian diets can be healthy. Just like a non-vegetarian diet, it all comes down to your choices! You have to be sure to get enough nutrients from your food. 


Sometimes vegetarians may lack protein, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. To see if you should add supplements to your daily routine, talk to your doctor.


But, research shows that vegetarian diets are generally healthy and may offer health benefits, like a lower risk of heart disease. To get these health benefits, make sure to eat a balanced diet and avoid over-eating unhealthy foods.
