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!
Reviews of The Meatless Monday Family Cookbook
*This is Real World vegan cooking. The basic vegan cooking that tired people will do after a long work day. Almost every ingredient is in my pantry or fridge. No odd ingredients that only can found in a specialty market 2 hours away. Quick, easy, and tasty. My kind of cookbook.
*This book is full of simple, approachable, and delicious vegan recipes for everyone. I love it because the recipes don’t require any crazy ingredients or a lot of time. Perfect for the beginner vegan/vegetarian or people who want to incorporate Meatless Monday into their lives.
*Great book! I have already made a few recipes in the couple weeks I have had this book. I love that there are no “crazy vegan” ingredients and you likely already have most the ingredients in your kitchen. The little tidbits of how children can help are awesome to get the kiddos involved in preparing healthy meals. Highly recommend if you are looking to eat healthier and add more plant based meals to your life!
*This is my go-to cookbook. My family loves the recipes and they are fairly easy to make.
*My husband Ken and I love this book. Every recipe is thoughtfully planned out and is full of flavor. Last night we had ‘Jimbo’s Red Beans and Rice’ and it was the perfect comfort food for a chilly evening. One of or faves is the ‘Baked Garlic White Mac & Cheese’ – my husband Ken said to share this is his new go-to cookbook – lucky me!
