The fastest growing food trend just may be plant-based diets—and no wonder: They’re good for our health and good for the environment. Whether your family is vegetarian, observes Meatless Mondays, or just wants to try some new veggie-based dishes, we’ve got ideas to inspire you. These recipes—from cookbooks being published this spring—offer plant-based alternatives to some of kids’ favorite foods. 

10-Minute Tomato Pasta: Ella Woodward, author of Deliciously Ella, turns to this comforting dish when she has almost nothing in her fridge. You only need two fresh ingredients!

Vegetable Fried Quinoa & Brown Rice: In Crave, Eat, Heal, vegan blogger Annie Oliverio offers this healthy alternative to Chinese takeout. Next time you cook up some quinoa or brown rice, make extra so you can quickly put together this delicious stir-fry.

Baconut Sandwich: In this vegetarian version of a BLT sandwich, from mom Dreena Burton’s new book, Plant-Powered Families, coconut flakes are transformed using the smoky-sweet flavors associated with bacon.

Lentil Tacos: In Gluten-Free & Vegan for the Whole Family, Jennifer Katzinger creates a version of this Mexican favorite that’s filled with beluga lentils, a deep purplish-black variety that’s smaller than other lentils.
