I would like to buy my vegetarian friend a fabulous cook book for Christmas.

Any ideas? She likes a challenge!

Bought my brother a Yotham Ottolenghi one.he seemed to like it.

Seconding Plenty by Ottolenghi. Or Veggiestan by Sally Butcher.

For the slightly less adventurous cook, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's Veg is a bit preachy but has good recipes and inspiring photos.

The cranks cook book is excellent if you can get a copy

Fresh India by Meera Sodha is very good and we also like the Anna Jones - how to eat/how to cook (I forget which one we have)

I came on to reccommend Fresh India too!

Oh I was going to say Meera Sodha too, Fresh India is really good.

I have fresh India and really rate it.

Vegan Love Story, recipes from Tibits & Hiltl - or the Terre a Terre cookbook.

Thanks all - great suggestions, I'll go off now for a search! 💫

The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook by Salma Hage is a nice one either, if the Ottolenghi looks too daunting.

at the risk of sounding like Meera's sock puppet - even if you don't buy Fresh India please do try her baked bhajis - total revelation to me!

Another vote for Anna Jones. Uses lots of ingredients that you wouldn't normally think of. Really tasty recipes.

I have mentioned this before but Hugh F-W's River Cottage 'Veg Every Day' is my go to veggie cook book. However it is such a classic it might be that your friend has it already.

I have just ordered Fresh India! Sounds fab. Rather fancy it myself must concentrate on Christmas list

Thank you all so much for suggestions flowers
