Out of more than 100 recipes, you’ll find 100 gluten-free and soy-free recipes or recipe options, over 75 nut-free and nut-free-option recipes, around 65 kid-friendly and kid-friendly-option recipes (yes, we had a whole group of kids eating their way through this book!), and 45 freezer-friendly recipes. There are around 25 reader-favourite blog recipes (all re-tested and tweaked to perfection). And of course, all of the recipes in the book are plant-based and vegan.
One of my very favourite things about this cookbook is that it includes useful tips that will help you create meals that are kid-, allergy-, and freezer-friendly. Each recipe will tell you whether it’s gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, oil-free, grain-free, kid-friendly, and/or freezer-friendly (or whether I provide an option for you to make it so). It’ll also tell you if advance preparation is required (such as soaking nuts).
There’s a highly detailed reference section at the back of the book on essential pantry ingredients, so you’ll know exactly what I’m using in my own kitchen. If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I just don’t know where to begin,” or “I’d like to get out of a cooking rut and try something new,” this pantry primer is for you.
