Need gluten free recipes? I’ve got you covered there, too. Many recipes are already gluten free. For most others, I’ve added notes on how to make it gluten free.
Trying to steer clear of oil? I’ve got tips in the intro of the book on how to cook oil-free. Please note, however, that there are a few recipes, like my Maple Dijon Vinaigrette and Addictive Bite Size Tofu that won’t turn out well if you leave out the oil.
Quick and Easy Recipes
It’s also for those of all skill-levels in the kitchen.
Being a mom to 3 busy, active kids and a wife to a hard-working husband, I need recipes that are easy and fuss-free. Nothing should take more than an hour, with most recipes averaging around 30 to 40 minutes, many just 20 minutes.
You’ll find tips along the way about how your kids can help you in the kitchen, too!

“I absolutely love this cookbook! I do not fancy myself a good cook and don’t really enjoy cooking, however, I hit the jackpot with the first recipe I tried (Rigatoni with Zucchini and Corn). Not only was it SO delicious, but it was easy enough to make that I would actually say I enjoyed cooking it! I made it in less than 30 minutes and the whole family devoured it. An added bonus was that I had all the ingredients to cook this without a trip to the store. I’m not a vegetarian but want to cook more plant-based food for my family and these recipes seem like a fabulous starting point for me.” ~ Jenny T.
“This cookbook is so simple – even I can make these dishes. (And I received ‘Cooking for Dummies’ as a present once!) I am definitely feeling inspired to go meatless on Monday! Thanks, Jenn Sebestyen!” ~ Meghan M.
