It can be challenging to create nutritious family meals that appeal to everyone at the table, especially if one or more members of the family are vegetarian. Here you’ll find plenty of ideas for quick and easy meat-free meals along with advice to help you ensure that young vegetarians get all the nutrients they need while tucking into great-tasting food. Start each day with an energy-boosting Breakfast--mix up a Strawberry, Yogurt, and Orange Smoothie and serve with an Apple and Raisin Muffin. Lunchboxes & Snacks should pack a powerful nutritional punch and recipes here include Potato and Sweet Bell Pepper Tortilla Squares and Chickpea Bites. Soups & Fast Food provides quick fixes for when time is short— try a bowl of Noodles with Sesame Peanut Sauce or Cornmeal and Corn Fritters. The fun recipes featured in Kids’ Favorites means veggie kids don’t have to miss out--treat them and their friends to Mushroom Barley Burgers with all the trimmings or Bean and Vegetable Tacos. Finally, Family Feasts is full of great dishes the whole family will love, such as Mac ’n’ Cheese with Spinach and Vegetable Chili with Pumpkin.
