Jerusalem - both books are outstanding, yet, since you're asking to choose between the two, I like the fact that Jerusalem is not exclusively vegetarian and the recipes are all accessible for the home cook.

You can't go wrong with either. Jerusalem tells more of a narrative, and has more variety, whereas Plenty is entirely vegetable-focussed.

My best answer is both :) Ottolenghi writes a really, really good recipe and sets you up for success.

Both are terrific, but Plenty has been out long enough that you might be able to find it at a local library and read it without purchasing.
