With so many vegan cookbooks coming out all the time, there are so many to choose from. Here are our REAL Favorite Cookbooks of 2012.
1. Ramses Bravo, BRAVO! Health-Promoting Meals From The TrueNorth Kitchen
This is my personal favorite because Ramses Bravo has created recipes that are not only delicious but so good for you; sugar, oil and salt free (SOS-Free). While I do eat salt, sugar and salt on occasion, I believe SOS-free food is the healthiest way to go. This cookbook shows us how, deliciously.

3. Miyoko Schinner, Artisan Vegan Cheese
This book is a game changer for people who say they can’t go vegan because they love cheese. Now you can make cheese at home from plant based foods, nuts, seeds and soy. I am sure we will be seeing cheeses like the ones in this book available soon in supermarkets which will only help improve our health, heal the environment and reduce exploitation of animals.
