One of the most common inquiries I receive as a six-year vegan: aren't you tired of eating grass? A common misconception of veganism is that it exclusively consists of bland lettuce bowls and veggie plates. But *spoiler alert* that just isn't the case. Not only are we munching on much more than sad salads, but we've also got the latest and greatest of very tasty vegan cookbooks at our disposal — we're talking vibrant recipes after recipes that anyone, plant-based or not, can indulge in.
We did some major digging into the oversaturated market of internet-bred cookbooks and seized a collection of the most acclaimed and highly reviewed vegan iterations that 2020 has to offer. Ahead, thumb through everything from charming Southern-inspired flavors to easy one-pot meals and a few lavish undertakings that every food enthusiast can appreciate. Put a lid on those grass preconceptions by whipping them a real-good green meal they won't soon forget.
