Vegan Kids in the Kitchen

A RECIPE BOOK BY THE FOUNDER OF CAFÉ INDIGO AND HER GRANDCHILDREN!

We’re so excited

to have

completed

our child-tested and

child-approved cookbook.

We thought long

and hard about how we

might create a cookbook

that is designed to be

incredibly child friendly.

We wanted to develop a

different type of child’s

cookbook. Of course it

would have to be filled

with wonderful vegan

recipes inspired by Café

Indigo and it would

have to be written in

a way that ensured the

children who use it will

be engaged from start to

finish. This cookbook is

designed to have your

junior chef actively

involved throughout

the cooking experience;

each recipe is carefully

designed to be user-friendly for even the youngest

helper in the kitchen. For this reason you’ll

note that the only kitchen appliance we use

is a hand blender. The process of creation is

done using simple mixing (we encourage the

use of clean hands) and chopping. Whether

your child is two or ten, you’ll find that he or

she will be able to be mostly independent in

the process.

It is true that an adult will need to manage

the oven or the stove top, as well as preparing

some vegetables for chopping, but you’ll see

how getting to that final step is done in a way

that your child can manage.

In our own home food serves as an expression

of our love for one another. The preparation,

from the initial foray to the market to

Children love hands-on activities, especially

when working with grown-ups in the

kitchen. Tasting is just one of the pleasures!

sitting and enjoying a

delicious meal, serves as

an opportunity to share

time together and enjoy

each other’s company.

There is also something

special about a well-prepared

meal that your

child has created. Truly

a source of great pride

and from this a sense of

real accomplishment.

We hope that you

will love this cookbook

as much as we do, but

more importantly that

you will love the time

shared creating these

delicious vegan recipes

with your children. We

certainly loved working

with our own children

and grandchildren to

carefully present this

collection of family

favorites.

As you read through this recipe book you’ll

see that we name ingredients such as soy milk,

Veganaise, Earth Balance and Daiya Cheese.

We don’t intend to require the use of these

items and any non-dairy vegan option can be

substituted. These specific items are listed simply

because they are the favorite ingredients

of our grandchildren so we’ve endeavored to

stay true to their taste preferences.

We also want you to know that our grandchildren

have asked, and we have happily

agreed, to donate 10% of the sale price for

each cookbook to charities involved in animal

rights and animal rescue.

Before starting, gather

all the tools needed and

all the ingredients.

Read the recipe so you

know what to do, then

it’s time to start cooking!

Be sure there’s an adult

to help with any cooking

or baking.

Wooden cutting board

Mixing bowl

Melon baller

Tasting spoons

Fruit Salad

Watermelon (use the

melon baller)

1 cup fresh strawberries

1 cup red grapes

This simple recipe is a favorite because we get to

use the melon baller. These are our favorite fruits

to use, but you can have fun experimenting with

your own favorites.

Wash and dry the strawberries and grapes.

With the help of an adult, cut the watermelon

in half. Use the melon baller to scoop out

pieces of watermelon (about 1 cup of melon

balls) and put them in the bowl. Using your

chopper, carefully cut the strawberries and

grapes in half and add to your bowl. Stir to

mix the fruit and enjoy!
