Welcome to 2012 VEGAN MOFO Day 29 - Favorite things

Welcome to MOFO TWENTY NINE!
I spoke last month at 
Vegan Society of PEACE's
2nd Saturday's potluck
http://vegansocietyofpeace.org/ 
about thirteen (Baker's dozen) of my favorite vegan cookbooks.
(Al Jarreau crooning
In alphabetical order:
The ALMOST NO FAT HOLIDAY COOKBOOK
- Bryanna Clark Grogan
(since the winter holidays are upon us)
The COMPLETE GUIDE TO VEGAN FOOD SUBSTITUTIONS
- Celine Steen and Joni Marie Newman
(especially useful for those new to vegan cooking)
The COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO PLANT-BASED NUTRITION - Julieanna Hever
(useful for explaining eating vegan to the vegan-haters, and protein obsessed)
COOKIN' SOUTHERN Vegetarian Style
- Ann Jackson
(cause I'm a Southern Belle vegan)
GOOD TIME EATIN' IN CAJUN COUNTRY Cajun Vegetarian Cooking - Donna Simon
(cause I adore Cajun/Creole food)
HOW IT ALL VEGAN

The NEW SOUL VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK
- from the kitchens of Soul Vegetarian Restaurants
(traditional soul food translates well back into its vegan roots)
The NUTRITIONAL YEAST COOKBOOK
- Joanne Stepaniak
(for those wondering what it is and what to do with it)
RAW FOOD MADE EASY for 1 or 2 People
- Jennifer Cornbleet
(good intro to raw vegan uncooking)
The ULTIMATE UNCHEESE COOKBOOK
- Jo Stepaniak
(proof that "I could never give up cheese" is a no-brainer)
VEGAN WITH A VENGEANCE
- Isa Chandra Moskowitz
(great vegan intro)
VEGANOMICON, The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook
- Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero
(vegan versatility at its best)
WORLD VEGETARIAN
- Madhur Jaffrey
(cause I adore Indian food, and ethnic cuisine in general)

Anything by Jo Stepaniak would be a welcomed addition to any kitchen.
The two listed helped me transition family members having
"cheese withdrawal" issues.
Like this
"Cheezy Rice and Broccoli Casserole" from
THE ULTIMATE UNCHEESE COOKBOOK.
Everything is mixed right in the casserole dish, which I oil lightly for easier clean up.
Since I used brown basmati rice, I added 1/2 cup water to the 2 cups non-dairy milk called for in the recipe, and the suggested 1/4 tsp tumeric for added yellow color, plus a couple of chopped  carrots to make a one-dish meal.
Good for everyday, holidays and potlucks.
