I don’t go around broadcasting the fact that Little Pea is vegetarian, mostly because I don’t have the energy to answer questions about it. But when I do tell someone, the question that follows is usually, “What does she eat?”
SALAD. NOTHING BUT SALAD.
Just kidding! However, I figured that sharing some of our meals here would be helpful. Not just for those people who are puzzled as to what a vegetarian toddler eats, but for other vegetarian parents out there—it’s nice to see what other families are making and pick up some new ideas.
Tamarind Lentils from Veganomicon
I feel like every vegetarian and vegan probably owns this cookbook, yes? Legumes are one of those dependable foods Little Pea will reliably eat any way we serve them, so she loved these. I served them in little lettuce cups, which didn’t really work out so well for her, but my husband and I appreciated them.
