A selection of favorite vegetarian cookbooks, or books that emphasize plant-based preparations. Some of the titles are strictly vegetarian, others aren't. The later I've included because they include enough information and inspiration to warrant being highlighted here. There are many wonderful vegetarian preparations you'll find in the traditional cooking of many cultures. Aside from exploring strictly vegetarian titles, I would also recommend exploring books that dive into specific places and cuisines - that's where you'll find the most delicious inspiration.
