One of the things I love most about my job, is all the cookbook reviews I get the opportunity to do. Today my review is of Dreena Burton’s latest cookbook Plant-Powered Families: Over 100 Kid-Tested, Whole-Foods Vegan Recipes.
You may already be familiar with her blog, Plant Powered Kitchen. Today I am sharing a recipe from the book. Red Lentil Hummus. What a great idea, right? I love lentils and hummus, but I never thought to make hummus with lentils.
Dreena has been vegan for almost 20 years. She also raises her 3 children vegan. In fact, Plant Powered Families has over 100 recipes that have been tested and approved by her 3 children. I love that these recipes are easy and kid friendly. In addition to the hummus, some of the other recipes include: Cinnamon French Toast, Pumpkin Pie Smoothie, Sneaky Chickpea Burgers, Apple Pie Chia Pudding, Vanilla Bean Chocolate Chip Cookies, Creamy Fettucine and No Bake Granola Bars. I can’t wait to make more of the recipes myself. In addition to the recipes, Dreena shares tips on dealing with picky eaters, packing school lunches and stocking a vegan pantry.
I am also giving away a copy to one lucky reader. Make sure you enter via the Rafflecopter widget below the recipe!
