Once a marginalized subset of our food culture, vegetarian cuisine is now mainstream. There are a huge number of cookbooks and websites that focus on vegetarian and vegan cooking, and a lot of them are incredibly successful. I grew up in India where more than half the population is vegetarian, and so I was raised with a healthy appreciation for vegetarian cooking.
But then I married a pesco-vegetarian and am now raising a (picky) pure vegetarian child. I have come to need more resources for dinner, and to develop a more in-depth understanding of vegetarian cooking. Here are some of the cookbooks on which I've come to rely to feed my vegetarian family every day.
