Kids Can Cook Vegetarian (Esther Coombs)

Hello, friends! Our book today is Kids Can Cook Vegetarian, illustrated by Esther Coombs, third in Button Books’s series of kid-friendly cookbooks for young chefs.

Kids can cook, but not every kid or family eats meat! So for little ones who love to cook meat-free meals, the Kids Can Cook series is back with a collection of simple and accessible recipes for chefs in the making. Separated into “Snacks & sides,” “Main meals,” and “Sweet treats,” little ones – with help from their trusted adults, of course – can try their hand at thirty-two recipes, including muffin pizzas, halloumi burgers, carrot hot dogs, zucchini brownies, and much more.

Another delicious edition! These cookbooks are a personal favorite of our family, as we’ve had a ton of fun in our kitchen with recipes from Kids Can Cook and Kids Can Bake. The directions for each recipe are clear and written in kid-accessible language, the illustrations add charm while giving visual context for the steps, and learning kitchen safety as well as culinary basics is emphasized. All the recipes are meat-free naturally, using symbols to indicate further if they are vegan and/or gluten-free as well, and the variety and creativity of the collective is wonderful. JJ was super excited to try some of these new recipes, especially the homemade fruit and root roll-ups. Overall, I would recommend this series to anyone, but for vegetarian kids and families, this one is a must. Baby Bookworm approved!
