Much more than just a cookbook. Even if they’re not interested in distinguishing tempeh from textured vegetable protein, kids will come away from this title feeling more independent in the kitchen.

Children's Literature
The authors credit their children for the inspiration for this cookbook. It is a fun-filled, delicious romp through lacto-ovo, vegan and vegetarian menus. It includes recipes for breakfast, sandwiches, soups and sauces, vegetables, salads, lunches and dinners, drinks and desserts. Vegetarianism and nutrition are discussed at the beginning as well as cooking safety, and cooking terms. There are 225 pages of recipes that sound inviting and seem easy to prepare. How about Lasagna Spinach Roll-ups, Focaccia Bread, Marinated Cucumbers, with Peach-Banana Sorbet for dessert? Many recipes give suggestions for a full course combination of foods. Directions are simple and straightforward and ingredients and cooking utensils should be readily available for the novice cook. It's an impressive book. 2002, Kids Can Press,

Gr 4-8 This attractive and well-organized volume is chock-full of tempting recipes for beginners and more advanced cooks. The introduction contains information on the different kinds of plants that one can eat, nutrition in vegetarian diets, cooking and measuring tips, safety measures, cooking terms, and useful utensils. The recipes are organized into sections on "Breakfast"; "Sandwiches, Wraps and Snacks"; "Soups"; "Salads"; "Lunches and Dinners"; "Rice, Pasta and Noodles"; "Breads"; "Vegetables"; "Sauces and Fillings"; "Cookies and Desserts"; and "Drinks." The mouthwatering, international dishes include frittatas, quesadillas, hummus, miso soup, tabbouli, and couscous. Each recipe indicates level of difficulty and preparation, as well as cooking, time. Some of the entries offer serving suggestions, "try this" ideas for enhancing the dishes, and techniques for working with some of the ingredients. The layout of each page is attractive and easy to follow. The author's point of view is that "when you do the cooking, you get to make your own choices, and that's what being a vegetarian is all about." The writing style is clear and lively, and bright green-and-gray cartoons enhance the presentation. A fine addition for general use. -Janice Greenberg, formerly at Brooklyn Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
