Best Plant-Based Cookbooks 

  • The Idiot’s Guide: Autoimmune Cookbook by Amari Thomsen – If you would have told me last year that I would write a book in 2015, I would have called you crazy. But at the start of 2015, when The Idiot’s Guide team reached out to me with an opportunity to create a specialty diet cookbook for individuals with autoimmune conditions, I couldn’t say no to the challenge. With over 120+ recipes, this book features recipes free from grains, dairy, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds, nightshades, and refined or processed oils and sugars – without sacrificing flavor. With all of the content, recipes and photography completed in my very own kitchen in less than 6 months, this labor of love is an accomplishment I am truly proud of this year!
  • The Blender Girl Smoothies by Tess Masters – This cookbook takes smoothies to a whole new level. Blogger Tess Masters of The Blender Girl has created a series of powerhouse smoothie recipes that feature nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables along with suggested flavor boosters and superfood add-ins (think chia seeds, flaxseed oil, maca powder and more)!
  • The Sprouted Kitchen Bowl and Spoon by Sara Forte – Blogger Sara Forte (who blogs at Sprouted Kitchen) has created a follow-up to her successful first book, The Sprouted Kitchen written in 2012. With a focus this time on a simple bowl and spoon, Sara has developed delicious combinations of whole grains, vegetables and lean proteins tossed with unique dressings and superfood toppings to create mouthwatering nutritious meals.
  • My New Roots by Sarah Britton – If you haven’t yet noticed, I love cookbooks from my favorite bloggers and Sarah Britton is no exception! Her beautiful blog, My New Roots, has expanded into a cookbook of gorgeous whole-food, plant-based adaptable recipes that will draw readers from vegetarian, vegan and even Paleo backgrounds!
  • Simple Green Smoothies by Jen Hansard and Jadah Sellner – What started as a simple website and social media community has now blossomed into a colorful and nutrient-packed cookbook! As part of their journey to find health and wellness, two friends began encouraging friends and family to drink one green smoothie a day. As a result, this book delivers over 100 delicious and energy-boosting fresh fruit and veggie smoothies that will inspire you to transform your own health from the inside out.

From spreads and dips to energy bar and frozen treats, these healthy yet indulgent recipes will satisfy any in-between-meal cravings.
  • But I Could Never Go Vegan by Kristy Turner – While this is technically a 2014 book, it came out so late in the year that I think it’s worth including here on our 2015 list! Blogger and vegan recipe extraordinaire, Kristy Turner of Keepin’ it Kind offers 125 recipes bursting with so many flavors that you won’t have any excuse to miss the real thing. Kristy goes beyond the traditional salad and teaches readers how to make homemade sauces and dressings, vegan cheeses, creative brunch recipes and delectable desserts.
