Synopsis: So You're Now A Vegetarian  
What exactly are you supposed to eat?

If you're anything like sixteen-year-old author Lauren Butts, you don't want to wade through your parents' cookbooks or resort to eating boring plates of steamed veggies. You probably just crave vegetarian versions of the foods you already love: burgers, wraps, tacos, lasagna, and stir-fries. So that's what Lauren gives you in OK, So Now You're a Vegetarian. Not only does she provide 100 mouth-watering recipes for everything from a Breakfast Burrito and Thai Tofu-Veggie Wrap to the Fake-Steak Burger and Death-by-Chocolate Brownies, she also deciphers vegetarian jargon and gives nutritional advice on maintaining a healthy diet. You'll even find helpful cooking tips, in case you slept your way through Home Ec. In OK, So Now You're a Vegetarian Lauren has written, expressly for teenagers, the unique, invaluable, and fun-to-use cookbook that both you, and your parents, have been waiting for.

Review: When Lauren Butts became a vegetarian, she had a hard time finding recipes and information to suit her needs. Sure, there were plenty of vegetarian cookbooks on the market, but they just weren't for her. Why? Because, like many new vegetarians, she was a teenager and didn't have the cooking skills, patience, or inclination to prepare fancy vegetarian meals for herself. What Butts really craved was quite simple: vegetarian versions of her standby favorites--burgers, lasagna, tacos, and stir-fries. While still in high school, she started researching her nutritional needs and how to meet them without meat. In OK, So Now You're a Vegetarian, she provides 100 recipes for simple, satisfying, and nourishing food that any teenager would love, rescuing teenage vegetarians everywhere from night after night of steamed veggies and rice. Meals such as Veggie Quesadillas, Vegetarian Potpie, and Tasty Flatbread Pizza with Olives and Artichoke Hearts should appeal to teenage vegetarians everywhere. Most of the dishes are made with ingredients easily found in any supermarket, and many rely on standard ingredients normally found in most family kitchens.

Perhaps most importantly, Butts helps teenage vegetarians navigate the sometimes bumpy road from a meat-based diet to a plant-based one. She provides definitions of the different types of vegetarians (ovo-lacto vegetarian, lacto-vegetarian, vegan, etc.), a food-guide pyramid for vegetarians, and a glossary of ingredients. Best of all, each recipe includes a complete nutritional analysis that lists quantities of such important nutrients as protein, iron, calcium, vitamin B-12, and zinc. While there aren't a whole lot of recipes in the book for vegans (those who eschew all meat and animal products, including eggs and milk products), people who are semivegetarian, ovo-lacto vegetarian, or lacto-vegetarian are sure to find plenty here to keep them as happy and well-nourished as a growing teenager ought to be. --Robin Donovan
