A Great Book is "How to cook Everything Vegetarian" by Mark Bittman He has done lots of cook books but this one is great. Not only tells you recipes but the whole information on each ingredient and substitutions.

A second book I used when I started is Linda McCartney Home Cooking.
It tells you good recipes of regular meals you are already used to.

Happy Eating and Cooking! emoticon

I totally agree with checking them out from the library to find one that meets your lifestyle and cooking style. One of my favs is Supermarket Vegan. Designed to have easily accessible ingredients the recipes are generally quick and healthy and their are a lot of them.

There are a lot of good blogs out there too which may give you some places to start. Post Punk kitchen, Fat Free Vegan, and Oh She Glows are nice.

Keep a green tree in your heart & perhaps the singing bird will come.

emoticon Ahlan ya Amirah. I like the Vegetarian Times Cookbook(s) best for taste. But, you have to watch the calorie count because their book(s) are not diet books.

I really like Veganomicon by Isa Chandra, and there are many blogs online. I particularly enjoy Oh She Glows. I have a few vegan pinboards if you are into pinterest, pinterest.com/ajc_80.
