Gr 6 Up–Skiadas, creator of the blog “Wondering Chickpeas,” is uniquely qualified to author this title. She started the food blog at 16, featuring recipes she developed and showcasing her original food photography. Skiadas’s journey to a vegan diet started with severe childhood allergies to dairy, eggs, peanuts, and most tree nuts. Despite that intimidating list of allergens, this vegan cookbook contains comfort food recipes—mac and cheese made with butternut squash, nourishing soups, grain bowls, and best-served-warm desserts like Cornbread Peach Crumble. The title opens with tips for success that gently recognize various levels of experience in teen cooks. Also included are a few paragraphs on commonly used vegan ingredients, such as tofu and tempeh. The recipe flavors are exciting and are influenced by Mexican, Cajun, Italian, Indian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Caribbean, North African, and Korean cuisine. The busy schedules of teens are acknowledged in the Weeknight Wonders and Weekend Feasts sections.
VERDICT A tasty vegan title for teens. Purchase for all collections serving teens.
