Little hands in the kitchen require some special attention and a watchful eye, but that doesn’t mean kids should be banned from cooking. There are so many ways to get the kids involved in making healthy, delicious plant-based meals that don’t require them to use knives or memorize chemistry. You can give the kids jobs like washing vegetables, peeling carrots, mixing sauces, or adding the garnish to a finished meal. Here are 10 vegan dishes to make with your kids:
At night, you should cook the oats, which will rest overnight. Then, in the morning, have the kids help with placing fruit, nuts, seeds, and whatever their heart desires on top. They can use pecans, apples, and nuts to make a cool purple monster face.
Every kid should have the experience of making these crispy treats. Remember the classic version that calls for Rice Krispies and marshmallows? This recipe is even tastier and calls for vegan marshmallow creme.
While you clean and cut the eggplant into fry-size slices, have the kids work on the accompanying dip. They can mix the yogurt, parsley, garlic powder, paprika, ground cumin, onion powder, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar in a large bowl. Then, give them the eggplant fries to toss in the mixture, coating evenly.
Quesadillas are a great meal to make with the kids, since you can accommodate different tastes simply by adding different fillings inside. First, let the kids choose some fresh produce (peppers, tomatoes, onion?) so they feel like they’re part of the whole process. Once you’ve sauteed the veggies, have them place fillings inside the quesadillas.
This recipe is good to make with kids who are of age to use the stove. They can boil the pasta or have a hand at measuring and mixing ingredients into a pot for the cheese sauce.
The kids can help open cans of beans, rinse, and drain them while you chop veggies and prepare other ingredients for the patties.
Instead of regular wheat pasta, make zucchini marinara pasta for dinner. Older kids can help spiralize the zucchini, gather ingredients, and blend sauce ingredients in a blender.
In these tacos, falafel balls are the stellar “meat.” Older kids can help combine all of the falafel ingredients into a food processor, then help younger kids roll the mix into falafal balls.
Her vegan kids love this bread, and yours will too! Kids can help mix, shape, and decorate this bread. Plus, they’ll love the fun turtle shape.
After you blend all of the ingredients for the crust, kids can help mold and shape the mixture into tart cups. They can also help with the filling by mushing a banana with a fork, as well as decorate the tarts with fresh fruit pieces.
