I have a vegan Japanese cookbook, but I haven't made much from it. Might be something you would like? http://www.amazon.com/Japanese-Cooking-Contemporary-Traditional-Delicious/dp/1570670722/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1297182633&sr=8-2

Veggie sushi is delicious, and you can get creative with what to put in your roll. You can make it with brown rice if you prefer.

Gyoza are great, I like to make mine with a mushroom filling. I don't follow a recipe per se. You can find directions all over the internet to make gyoza wrappers, and then just create your own filling. Some examples:

http://opinionessoftheworld.com/2010/10 ... dumplings/
http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=34541.0


You can make a vegan donburi. Once again, you can really use whatever ingredients you want. Some more examples:

There is an old book that you can probably get from your library or order for next to nothing off of Amazon called "The Book Of Tofu". It has a number of Japanese tofu recipes.

I don't know if you are still interested, but I checked this book ouf of the library:
http://www.amazon.com/Kansha-Celebrating-Japans-Vegetarian-Traditions/dp/1580089550/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1298777570&sr=1-2

It is really an amazing book with LOADS of information in it. She really goes into detail about cooking techniques, specific Japanese ingedients, history/tradition of the dishes, etc. It's more like an encyclopedia than a cookbook.

Some of the ingredients will be hard for me to find here, but I don't know what's available to you. Still, I will take some of the ideas and use them to create dishes with what I have. And even if you don't make many things, it's still a really interesting book to read.

Perhaps you can get it in your library though? I'm cheap too, which is why I use the public library. It's totally free.

I haven't made anything out of it yet so no pics. I'm not going to post a bunch of the recipes since they are copyrighted, but if there's something in particular you are looking for I could send you 1 or 2.
