Looking for vegetarian cookbook recommendations for my sister in law

She isn't very adventurous in exploring new foods and is just starting to cook, so simple, straightforward recipes would be best. Thanks!

Super Natural Everyday by Heidi Swanson. One of the few books I've cooked all the way through and loved every recipe. It's a go-to at least once a week for this mostly meat-free household!

Check out Nigel Slater's books, Tender and Ripe. Vegetable Literacy by Deborah Madison. And another vote for Plenty.

American Wholefoods Cuisine, Nikki and David Goldbeck -- This is a good book for basic recipes, baking, preserving and covers all categories. Lots of recipes and good results... It's a foundation comparable to The Joy of Cooking.
