The Colorful Family Table: Seasonal Plant-Based Recipes for the Whole Family

We rated this book:


As plant-based eating grows in popularity, vegans, meat-eaters, and everyone in between are on the lookout for more vegetarian options to feed themselves and their families. Children especially can be pickier eaters, and many of the dishes that appeal to adults may not be quite so kid-friendly. Fortunately, there are new cookbooks coming out all the time that deal with this issue, and blogger and recipe developer Ilene Godofsky Moreno’s newest cookbook is packed with great ideas. The Colorful Family Table is meant for families, and the recipes inside will surely appeal to a wide range of tastebuds, from the pickiest of children (and adults!) to those with a wider palate. Moreno is a big fan of eating seasonally, and consequently, her book is divided into four seasonal sections. In the fall, enjoy cozy, filling dishes like kabocha squash & lentil stew or easy stewed apples. Winter recipes include options like balsamic cabbage “steaks” and brownie blizzard balls. In the spring, enjoy fresh flavors in dishes like veggie quiche or roasted garlic pesto. And in the summer, home chefs will be eager to try BBQ lentil burgers or watermelon & tofu feta salad. Beautiful pictures make the meals even more appealing, and readers will appreciate no-fuss instructions and easy-to-find ingredients.
