Favorite Vegetarian Cookbooks

Felliott | Nov 15, 201608:26 AM     8

I am a little strapped for cash this holiday season, and am trying to get creative with my Christmas gifts. I have five siblings to buy for. My two sisters (21 and 23) are both vegetarians and both still live at home with my mom. They have an interest in cooking and can cook basic things (stir-fries, roasted vegetables, things like that), but seem a little intimidated by more complex recipes. I am a kitchen enthusiast, and they've both said they enjoy cooking with me, it just can be hard to find the time.

I'm thinking of getting them a good vegetarian cookbook with a note that they can both choose a recipe, I will buy the ingredients, and come over and cook it with them. This will allow us to spend some time together while also allowing them to practice cooking skills.

So my question is what are your favorite vegetarian cookbooks? They are fond of Asian flavors but are both interested in expanding their horizons. I'd like something that's accessible for them so that they can cook without me, too.

We live in the Chicago area and have access to good farmer's markets for seasonal items. Thanks!
