Our Favorite Vegan Cookbooks

At Cider Press Café, we believe that you need to eat healthy foods in order to be healthy, and so we focus on making dishes that look and taste great but that also provide the best nutritional and health benefits for our bodies.

We’ve listed off our list of favorite vegan cookbooks here, each with recipes that include great ideas and inspiration for plant-based food for any occasion and are a great addition to your kitchen! We have all of these cookbooks for sale in our Café, so stop on in for a great vegan meal and grab a cookbook today!

1) But I Could Never Go Vegan

Can’t imagine living without cheese? Convinced that dairy-free baked goods just don’t cut it? Hate the taste of tofu and not a fan of boring salads? EXCUSES, BE GONE! Blogger-author extraordinaire Kristy Turner deliciously refutes every excuse you’ve ever heard with 125 bursting-with-flavor vegan recipes for every meal of the day—including dessert!


2) Forks Over Knives, The Cookbook


Forks Over Knives (the book, the film, the movement) is back again in a cookbook. The secret is out: If you want to lose weight, lower your cholesterol, avoid cancer, and prevent (or even reverse) type 2 diabetes and heart disease, the right food is your best medicine. Thousands of people have cut out meat, dairy, and oils and seen amazing results. If you’re among them—or you’d like to be—you need this cookbook.


3) Thug Kitchen


Thug Kitchen started their wildly popular website to inspire people to eat some d**n vegetables and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow (‘This might be my favorite thing ever’) and with half a million Facebook fans and counting, Thug Kitchen wants to show everyone how to take charge of their plates and cook up some real f**king food.


4) Vegan Slow Cooking


If you have a small family or are looking for better-portioned vegan meals (that don’t force you to eat chili for a week straight!), Vegan Slow Cooking for Two or Just for You is the perfect resource for you. Featuring recipes geared specifically for use with a 1.5- to 2-quart slow cooker, you’ll find endless meal ideas that you can make with minimal effort and maximum taste. Just prep a few items the night before or morning of, and come home to a hot meal – or even side or dessert – the moment you walk in the door! Inside, you’ll find a whole new world of food to fall in love with, from breakfast-y Pumpkin Polenta to comforting White Bean Quinoa Gumbo to luscious Blueberry Lemon Cake. You’ll be amazed at what your slow cooker can do!

The Cider Press Café provides a fine dining experience in a casual setting in beautiful downtown St. Pete, FL. Featuring a Florida inspired, plant based cuisine, our menu is entirely vegan (but you don’t need to be vegan, you just need to enjoy good-tasting food!). We try to provide vegan cuisine for everyone (#VeganForAll), and regularly change up the menu with new and fresh meals. So if you haven’t stopped by in a while, there’s always something new to eat!

All of these cookbooks are conveniently for sale in our Café, so stop on in for a great vegan meal and check them out today!
