Book review: Little Green Kitchen: Simple Vegetarian Family Recipes

Words by Tara Smith

For cooks big and small.

I’ll be honest: as a meat-eater with no children in tow, I wasn’t sure how useful I’d find this cookbook. But after flicking through a few of its veggie-packed pages, I was pleasantly surprised.

It turns out, family recipes are excellent for lazy cooks like me.

Little Green Kitchen caters for all ages, with over 70 nutritious meals simple enough to whip up in under 30 minutes. Throughout the collection, you can expect such delights as spinach and cottage cheese waffles, sushi burrito rolls and crispy rice paper rolls, to name a few.

And despite being made with kids’ palates in mind, I found the majority of these recipes delicious – but perhaps this says more about me than it does about the book.

For more sophisticated tasters, each method features an ‘adult upgrade’ to kick things up a notch, as well as a ‘helping hand’ task for mini chefs in the kitchen.
