Vegan cooking can be very interesting and rewarding, especially if the kids love the vegan meals you prepare. As a mother, you would know how difficult it can get to make the kids eat wholesome and nutritious food. Listed below are some simple, yet healthy, recipes for vegan food that are sure to tempt your kids.

Recipe #1: Vegetarian Pizza Sandwich

Recipe #2: Breaded Tofu Nuggets

Ingredients

  • A block of extra-firm tofu
  • Half a cup of soymilk
  • 1 tsp onion and 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • A cup of bread crumbs

Directions

Tofu nuggets are a great replacement for chicken nuggets and can be enjoyed with ketchup or barbeque sauce. Mix all the ingredients, except the breadcrumbs, in a bowl. Cover all the pieces of tofu first with this mixture and then with breadcrumbs. Pour oil in a skillet and fry each piece in it till it turns golden brown. The tofu nuggets are ready to be eaten.

Tip: For a low fat alternative, you can bake the tofu pieces for 25 minutes.

    I think it is great to teach your kids to appreciated healthy vegan cooking. The best thing for the whole family is to swap refined flour for whole grains. Make your pizza with whole wheat bread and your nuggets with whole wheat bread crumbs. If you start when your kids are young, they won’t even miss the “white” stuff.
