Tastes of Ayurveda is vegetarian. How it all Vegan! is a two-time winner of the Veggie Award (from VegNews). Hope one of these will catch your fancy!
For example, keep in mind that studies are starting to reveal that refined sweeteners are especially harmful for vegetarians and vegans. So, what to use? Rapunzel makes a whole sugar that is completely unrefined. I sometimes use Grade B maple syrup (more flavorful than A) in preparing desserts (both these ingredients work in cooked, baked, and raw desserts). Be aware, however, that there is tremendous variability in maple syrup quality. Specifically, the only safe maple syrups are organic, and I recommend the Vermont syrup over the Canadian.
My overall favorite vegan macrobiotic cookbook is Mary Estella's Natural Foods Cookbook: Vegetarian Dairy-Free Cuisine. It's out of print, but many used copies are available.
I also recommend the Forks Over Knives Cookbook. Overall, those recipes are consistent with the message of the documentary Forks Over Knives, which interviews the researchers who are expert on how to reverse the coronary artery disease that is currently the #1 North American cause of mortality, Caldwell Esselstyn MD and T. Colin Campbell PhD. The DVD of this documentary has an endorsement on its cover from TV's Dr. Oz, a cardiac surgeon, who says simply, "I loved it and I want you all to see it!"
