These vegan recipe books are designed especially for families with fussy children to feed (obviously avoid nuts and seeds and nut/seed butters for younger children). Also slice veggie hot dogs and other choking hazards lengthways and lengthways again, before serving. And avoid common choking hazards like boioled sweets. Also see plant-based recipe books for children (to make meals themselves).
The Vegan Family Cookbook offers foundation cooking building blocks, to create your own dishes from beans, legumes and grains. These practical meals come together with minimal fuss, so you can be a confident home cook (with or without recipes) to bring your family the best of what nature has to offer.
Just like your grandma did, recipes are divided into themes: Mondays are pasta, Tuesdays are bowls, Wednesdays are one-pot meals and on Thursdays, it’s all about the stir-fries. Anna also shares her mix-and-match approach to building meals with her own family’s go-to combinations. Recipes include:
- Mac and Cheesy with Broccoli
- Peanut Butter Banana Waffles
- Corn Soup with Sneaky Red Lentils
- Lighter Kale Pesto Pasta
