Feeding the Healthy Vegetarian Family Paperback – April 1, 1998

Haedrich states his philosophy early on: when it comes to feeding children, flavor is all that matters. Kids won't care if there's meat in the spaghetti sauce or the chili, so long as it tastes good. These recipes might not make it into the pages of the glossy gourmet magazines, but they'll have even the most picky eaters asking for seconds. The book includes recipes for snack foods, sandwiches (both hot and cold), salads and soups, main dishes, casseroles, quick breads, desserts, and much more. So whether you're looking to supplement your vegetarian diet or hoping to introduce your family to a new and healthier way of eating, Feeding the Healthy Vegetarian Family offers both helpful advice and great recipes to get you and your kids off on the right foot.

Haedrich has an enjoyably readable style, and the anecdotes about his children's likes and dislikes and family traditions make this a "read it cover to cover" cookbook. There are plenty of suggestions about how to modify recipes for picky kids (perish the thought!), or how to perk up the same recipe to make it more "grown up". I love the author's understanding of what it is really like to cook with a family--no pristine test kitchen recipes here.
If you are looking for delicious, hearty, healthy and kid-friendly dishes, this is an absolute gem!
The vegetarian chili is the best I've ever made or eaten! It's so child friendly, even our 3 year old tried it and went back for more. Ken creatively works vegetables into the dishes that most kids (and husbands) would not eat, but they come back for more servings.
The recipes do not require a significant investment of time as do many other vegetarian cookbooks, but like all good meals, planning is necessary.
