Looking at Mayim Bialik's resume I have to wonder what I have been doing with my time! Is there anything this woman doesn't do? She's not only an Emmy-nominated actress for CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, she also has a PhD in neuroscience! And she is a great cook and busy mother of two boys, who have been raised vegan.
In her cookbook, Mayim's Table she shares quick easy recipes that make it easy for busy parents to cook nutritious, healthy meals the whole family can enjoy. The best thing about her recipes is that they are totally fuss-free, super-easy, and inexpensive. There are over 100 plant based family recipes for breakfasts, snacks, lunches, dinners, and desserts that are both kid and parent-approved including: Fruity Oatmeal Muffins, Vegan Reuben Sandwiches, Brussels Sprouts Chips, Vegetable Risotto, Daiya-Style Pizzas, Zucchini Pie, Dilled Chickpea Burgers With Spicy Yogurt Sauce, Plum and Walnut Crisp. Challah Bread, Mandel Brodt (Jewish Biscotti) and this super easy Mac N Cheeze.
But, there's more than recipes in this book.Teaming up with pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon (a prominent pediatrician and long-time member of the attending staff of UCLA’s Medical School) this cookbook debunks myths about raising a vegan family and provides essential information about vegan nutrition, must-haves for a plant based pantry, and strategies for meal planing and eating out.
This book has a lot of information for busy parents and tons of great recipes.
Mayim says of her mac n cheeze, "People often ask vegan children if they miss macaroni and cheese. With this recipe, your kids don’t have to miss out on the creamy comfort food many kids think comes from a box. The vegan cheese sauce can be poured and mixed directly into cooked pasta or baked in a casserole. Either way, it is an exceptionally yummy and satisfying dish you’ll find yourself making when you crave comfort food in a jiffy." I say, "Yum!"
