i love the mediterranean vegan kitchen. it doesn't really use any meat subs, and it's all stuff you should be able to find in a normal grocery store.
i'm also a huge fan of robin robertson. she has a ton of veg cookbooks, and if she uses anything strange, she typically has a note on something more normal that you can more easily find or a way to make the fancy thing. veganpeace.com/recipe_pages/recipes.htm
> this part of this website has recipes from some popular vegan cookbooks so you can try before you buy. amazon will also let you search through most cookbooks, at least bit by bit. and it may be worth checking out the largest library in your area to see what they have available. they may have some you can check out to see if you like them.
keep in mind that unless you have a medical issue, you should be getting a decent amount of fat in your diet. and unless you're planning on eating pounds and pounds of veggies that have very little fat in them, lots of nuts or avocado, you probably will need to add some oil to what you're eating so that you can get all the benefits from the fat soluble vitamins you're eating.
