Dinnertime is very different for families today than it was 10 years ago. Many parents work, kids often have after-school activities, and there’s the constant battle to get the kids away from a screen. Amidst all of this, who has time to cook? This cookbook is for real-world parents who want quick, easy yet nutritious meals to serve at dinnertime – they want to make dinner like a boss!
Every recipe highlights the preparation and cooking times, with easy-to-follow steps and options to vary the recipe, so the one dish can be adapted for different family members. Many of the variations add extra flavour without being overt, meaning this book can be a great way to introduce kids to more complex flavours at a young age.
The dishes are nutritionally balanced family meals, covering both meat and vegetarian options (and some sweets, too) in more than 50 recipes, and take inspiration from around the globe. Recipes include san choi bao, bibimbap, shakshuka, risotto, aromatic chicken noodle soup, spiralised zucchini noodles, fajitas, meatballs with hidden vegetables, and the ultimate mashed potato fish cakes. The desserts are all healthier yet delicious sweet options such as coconut popsicles and Greek yoghurt panna cotta.
