    The Teen’s Vegetarian Cookbook is a wealth of recipes and tips for new vegetarians. The recipes are split into chapters by meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner – and there are also chapters for soups, desserts and college cuisine. The recipes can all be made vegan or vegetarian depending on the Teens choice. The recipes include new and different things letting teens explore Thai and Indian cuisine, but the cookbook also includes classic favorites like vegetarian egg salad and vegetarian BLT’s. Interspersed throughout the recipes is information about vegetarianism and vegans and tips for teens , for example telling them to add ingredients to their parents shopping list and choose a Saturday or Sunday to make dinner for the family. The book also stresses that teens should respect others lifestyle choices and understand that not all vegetarians have the same level of commitment.

    When I became a vegetarian at age 14 I ate grilled cheese sandwiches. I continued to eat grilled cheese sandwiches for the next year until I started making new friends who were vegan and vegetarian. That group of friends helped each other find recipes and cook together – but none of us ever dreamed a cool resource like this might have existed. I would have loved to have this book as a teen – and it’s worth owning for adults too!

    i am the mom of 2 teens and i picked up this book for myself at the children’s school book fair!!! I am semi vegetarian…and i am trying to watch my diet so this book came in handy without boring me …it is dog earred already!!! the recipes are kind of ‘buried’ in the paragraphs which is a little bit frustrating…but you can flip thru the index to find a favorite…it does not have photographs but it does have illustrations in green and black…many of the facts are grouped into easy to find boxes…so this is a easy read…i recommend the book because you will not go broke by running out buying this item or that because many of us have these staple in our kitchen most of the time…you can also improvise on the recipes according to your tastes…who says adults cannot find gems of a book in the children’s book section?

    As I am writing this review, I am enjoying a deliciously easy recipe for “Scrambled Tofu”, which I have made several times since I received this book for a present a few weeks ago. This book is a life-saver! Before this book, I lived in fear of accidentally mixing two reactive compounds and poisoning myself. Hehe. After I bought all the required spices and food from my grocery store, I began to systematically do nearly every recipe in the book. So far, I have done about five, every one has been incredible! My favorite food to date: “Portabello Mushroom Fajitas!” Without this book, it is quite possible I would still eat meat or I’d be dead.

    Judy Krizmanic’s Teen’s Vegetarian Cookbook has opened a world of simple, quick, nutritious and delicious vegetarian cooking. As a college student, it is often difficult to eat an exciting, well-balanced vegi diet, but this book has simplified many of these problems with her guide to dorm life. The “insanely easy” indicators often come in handy, too, especially during finals! People often approach me as a vegetarian and ask “well, if you can’t have meat, what can you have?”. This book answers that question with tons of delicious recipes that are simple and interesting. I especailly recommend the lazy lasagna, even my meat-eating father liked it!
