Growing up in a single parent household there were a few things you had to learn how to do and cooking was one of those things. Let me stop there… No I didn’t cook any gourmet meals – the closest I came to gourmet was to making grilled cheese sandwiches using one slice of bread. Is it a sandwich if I only used one slice of bread? I digress…
The Green Teen Cookbook is a cookbook for teens & written by teens. The recipes are very easy to follow. The book is broke down in seven chapters:
The Introduction: Give teens a few tips on being safe in the kitchen. It covers the using knives correctly, avoiding cross contamination, and overall safety.
Chapter 1: A Rough Guide – This chapter gives teens tips on how to eat healthier. The section I enjoyed was How To Eat Seasonally. I’m not a garden person so I gained a wealth of information.
Chapter 2 – 7 – covers DIY Kitchen Staples, Breakfast, Soups & Salads, Snacks, Main Courses, and Desserts.
Since I have been juicing and trying to improve my eating habits – I decided to try one of the recipes. I choice Barry Hallinger’s Vegetable Smoothie (page 43).
The Verdict: My Vegetable Smoothie passed my teenager taste test. (My son hates vegetables – but he enjoyed this drink.)
This is the perfect book to get your teens to disconnect from Social Media and start bonding in the kitchen with family.
