Whether you follow a strictly vegan or vegetarian diet, or are just trying to eat less meat throughout the week, the plant-based cookbook category continues to grow.

Three new releases out this month offer up health-conscious recipes that are completely meat-free — and either vegan or mostly vegan — with recipes heavy on vegetables, fruits and nuts (with plenty of imitations, like cauliflower “Buffalo wings” and lentil sliders).
