Score!



A copy of Clean Food in perfect condition for $7 at the half price book store!

Here is the bulk of my collection. Not counting the ones I have gotten rid of, or some that are on stray book shelves or my night table. The long shot:


And close ups so you can see what's on there. Maybe it's just me, but I love to see what's on people's book shelves.







AND, there are so many new vegan cookbooks coming out - if you search for "vegan cookbooks" on Amazon, you don't even get to the current ones until six pages in. Yes, it's an obsession, but it is 30 year's worth of collecting!

Speaking of obsessions, I so love Viva Vegan! Check out this delicioso meal:


Stuffed Plantains (I did not use the nuts or cheese), Yellow Rice with Garlic, Zesty Orange Mojo Baked Tofu, and Venezuelan Style Black Beans, with some spinach in garlic and olive oil. This meal was spectacular, all the more so because I have not been cooking anything worthwhile lately. It was worth every single pot and pan. You must make these recipes, especially the beans and tofu. I think I must go eat the leftovers right now!

It's probably faster to name the cookbooks you don't own.

I <3 your cookbook collection! When I went vegan, I scaled down a lot and gave many books away. Aw. I miss the Cake Mix Doctor. I could do stuff in there, I'd bet.

Oh, I want Viva Vegan! I am cutting back on spending lately, though, so maybe I just need to tell some people with the holidays coming up...
