From Chelsea Clinton to Alicia Silverstone (and even Lisa Simpson), a new generation of vegetarians is coming to the table, and they're not going to settle for bland, steamed vegetables. Determined to address these concerns of her peers, teenage vegetarian Lauren Butts has created a cookbook like no others. This book addresses both the nutritional issues of this crucial growth period and the needs of parents who aren't about to cook a special dish for just one member of the family.
The daughter of award-winning cookbook author Diana Butts, Lauren now shares dozens of her favorite recipes. Okay, So Now You're a Vegetarian brims with ways to provide enough protein for teens while serving up meat-free versions of the foods they crave—burgers, stir-fries, wraps, tacos, and lasagna, along with innovative variations like Lean and Mean Eggplant Parmesan, Wicked Hot Chili, and Kathie's Chinese Noodle Salad. Butts has breakfast covered, too, with tasty selections such as Triple Layer Breakfast Parfait. This is the book thousands of hungry adolescents—and their parents—have craved.
