From the Inside Flap
What should we have for dinner tonight?
For many of us, this is a dreadful question; for others, it's a no-brainer: chicken fingers, French fries, hot dogs. That's what our kids like most, right? Of course, we all want our kids to eat food they like, but we also want them to have healthy meals that don't include the words "Happy" or "Super Size."
If this describes you and you'd like your family to eat well without having to cook multiple meals every night, The Gastrokid Cookbook is the perfect solution.
So, what is a Gastrokid? A kid who's willing to boldly explore new culinary tastes and experiences. That's the spirit of The Gastrokid Cookbook, where you'll find fast, easy-to-prepare, kid-tested, adult-friendly, organic, sustainable, and downright delicious recipes the authors have prepared for their own kids, including:
- Grilled Corn Salad
- Cauliflower Puree
- The Gastrokid Burger
- Tuscan Steak for Toddlers
- Fast Fish Cakes
- Seared Salmon with Soy Honey-Lime Sauce
- Japonaise Chicken Nuggets
- Citrus-cured Chicken Breast
- 50/50 Pasta
- 5-minute Tomato Sauce
- Green Zebra Pizza
These recipes can easily be tailored to your family's needs and are designed to liberate you from dependence on recipes. If your kids like their food richer, use more oil. If you like it brighter, add more lemon juice. Don't like parsley? Leave it out. Plus, collaborative recipes are included for you to prepare with your kids.
Every kid is born a Gastrokid. This fearless cookbook shows you how to feed your little ones' inborn hunger and curiosity-and, most importantly, how you can get started on discovering your own "inner Gastrokid."
