Atlas, founder of the popular Web site www.vegkitchen.com, adds to her printed offerings with this latest volume (after The Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet) aimed at the family at home. Understanding that children as well as adults can be "picky eaters," she provides a range of easy, adaptable vegetarian recipes that encompasses every occasion. In addition, she adds a vegan perspective to the book by suggesting the necessary substitute ingredients needed to provide this dietary alternative. The recipes take the reader through the day, from luscious breakfast smoothies and crunchy granolas, filling soups, light salads and snacks to the more substantial dishes of a main meal. Expanding on the beans and lentils of traditional vegetarian cuisine, she draws on inspiration from regional and international cuisine, from simple stir fries like the Hearty Seitan "Buddist's Delight" to Pasta with Enlightened Alfredo Sauce. Carefully including the nutritional analysis of each dish, the recipes vary in complexity but are aimed at the busy household, so most can be produced within a reasonable amount of time. Interspersed are helpful explanations of the more specialist vegetarian ingredients like tofu and seitan. Many of the recipes include "make it a meal" ideas for complementary dishes, while others suggest variations to embellish the finished result. The result is a competent, useful volume from a knowledgeable vegetarian author.

From the Inside Flap

It can be challenging to create nutritious family meals that appeal to everyone at the table, including the picky eaters. But Nava Atlas has solved the dilemma with a collection of down-to-earth recipes reflecting the way families really eat. Flexible, adaptable, and filled with ways to make wholesome food more attractive to children, "The Vegetarian Family Cookbook tackles breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time like no other vegetarian cookbook on the market.

She also takes the mystery out of cooking with soy and provides dozens of delicious whole-grain, low-sugar desserts. Most of the recipes include vegan substitutions for eggs or dairy products.
Whether you are a committed vegetarian or are simply cutting back or eliminating meat for economic, ethical, or health reasons, "The Vegetarian Family Cookbook makes this an appealing, stress-free decision.
Top customer reviews
I love that the recipes are simple, the directions are easy to follow, the ingredients aren't hard to find (plus she often lists substitute options) and she has vegan alternatives for almost every recipe. The simplicity is key for a mother of 2 small children - minimal prep time and the least amount of dirty dishes possible is what we moms strive for. I like her recipe tips, for example the "make it a meal" section of each recipe where she suggests a couple of things you can add to the plate to make a well rounded, satisfying meal. The food tastes great, the stir fry even had my small fry trying some new veggies. The vegan options are so useful for anyone wanting to expand into the world of soy products. I've recently been told by the allergist to give up dairy products which had been a major part of my diet and I think I would have starved without this book.
In contrast to several other vegetarian cookbooks on the market, this one doesn't have as strong of an emphasis on animal products (read: cheese), so that's a plus for me.
Highly recommended for anyone looking into vegetarian cooking, lots of really great, simple recipes in here!
If you are considering going vegetarian for a while with your family this is a great book to help you!
