Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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.

Nava Atlas' brand new cookbook has given me motivation to cook again!! With two picky vegetarian children and no time to cook, it has been difficult lately to even think of meal ideas. Atlas' newest cookbook gives great suggestions, is designed to be a great time saver, and is perfect for vegetarian and vegan families. It is a wonderful addition to my family's bookshelf.
This book is easy to read and easy to use. It is divided into a number of sections including: Easy Breakfast Treats, Soothing Soups & Salads, Pasta, Tofu & Seitan, Vegetables and Grains, Easy Side dishes, Sandwiches and School Lunches, Healthy Snacks and Baked Goods.
I really appreciate that most of the recipes have easy-to-find ingredients and are simple to make. Many of Atlas' ingredients are already in your kitchen. Each recipe is clearly marked whether it contains dairy or eggs and most of the recipes include variations. I also love how she makes it easier for readers to plan meals by noting accompanying side dishes and their page numbers. This makes it so easy to serve a complete and delicious meal without frantically having to think of accompaniments.
In addition to the recipes, Atlas discusses vegetarian eating and other topics including pesticides in our food, the vegetarian food pyramid, and websites dedicated to vegetarian and vegan lifestyles.--Denise Steele-Darnell

The best part about this cookbook is the baking section. Both the muffin recipes and the cookie recipes incorporate whole wheat flour, flax seeds, natural sweeteners, with just a tablespoon or two of oil (and are vegan) and they come out superb! This book is worth buying just for this section alone! As for the remaining recipes of the book, they are certainly family fare, so more sophisticated palates will be disappointed. But, if you have a family of picky eaters, or are cramped for time and need to whip up a speedy meal based upon pantry items, this is a perfect book to turn to. The more adventuresome cook can use the recipes as a base for more creative meals.

While I am not a vegetarian, I do incorporate vegetarian meals into my diet frequently. I have enjoyed all of Nava's other books, but was a bit leary of this book, since she adopted a veagan diet while writing it. I was wrong to doubt her.
She has several great recipes in there that I totally recommend: mushroom stroganoff, taco salad, and mashed sweet potatos with leeks, peas and walnuts. All are very easy and taste incredible.
I would recommend this book to anyone. I think the side-by-side nutritional analysis of the vegetarian vs. vegan versions of recipes are very eye-opening. It makes me want to try soy cheese one more time.

I purchased The Vegetarian Family Cookbook about 8 or 9 years ago. We are not vegetarians, but I was looking for ways to save on my grocery budget when I went back to school. This is by far my most loved cookbook! I still use it at least a couple of times a week. When my girls were infants/toddlers I was able to entice them to eat veggies by making the alphabet vegetable soup routinely. I really attribute the suggestions in this book to the reason my kiddies are not picky eaters… except for tomatoes. They still will not eat a raw tomato if their life depended on it! The yogourt based pancakes are to die for and super easy, the muffins always turn out great, and the enchilada casserole is lovely! I have tried a majority of the recipes in the book and have loved them all.

One of my favourite things about this cookbook is how the author has suggestions for what to serve along with each recipe to create a balanced meal.

This book is great for everyone. I am not a vegetarian or vegan but I love the recipes. My kids really liked all the baking and I could feel good giving it to them. The recipes are easy to prepare and I was easily able to find all of the ingredients. This is a must have if you want to feed your family healthy and delicious food even if you don't like to cook.
