Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet is a cookbook and more. Filled with vegan lifestyle advice and lots of nutritional information, The Kind Diet provides a solid base for parents considering making the switch to veganism. And the recipes are awesome. We make several of them, including her rustic pasta, vegetable couscous, and peanut butter cups, on a regular basis. The food is approachable and most of it is kid-friendly (even the arame turnovers are a great and tasty intro to using sea vegetables!). Her website, The Kind Life, also has great posts as well as reader forums and virtual chat sessions on topics ranging from vegan pregnancy to cute and occasionally controversial videos of Alicia’s adorable vegan son.
Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero are worshipped in the vegan food world for their culinary prowess, and with good reason: they create recipes from a broad variety of cultures. These creative recipes include tempeh sushi, potato and kale enchiladas, and the elusive vegan lemon bar. Moskowitz and Romero also include handy tips for prepping and substituting ingredients and their recipes include symbols denoting whether a recipe is gluten-free, how long it takes, etc (all useful info for busy vegan parents who don’t have all day to cook!). Moskowitz’s other books such as Vegan with a Vengeance and Vegan Brunch are also must-haves.
