When it comes to feeding your family, you want meals that are tasty, nutritious, and easy to prepare. But choosing healthier food options can be a challenge, especially with a special diet, since most store-bought gluten-free and meat-free foods are low in protein and high in simple carbs and sugars. Now, gourmet cook and healthy-eating coach Susan O’Brien has developed easy dishes the whole family can enjoy: 150 breakfasts, soups, salads, entrees, sides, snacks, and desserts made with complex-carb, high-protein ingredients for well-balanced nutrition. Recipes include:

Delightful Teff Waffles
Protein Breakfast Bars
Butternut Squash Bread
Jicama and Fruit Slaw
Sloppy Junes
Teriyaki Tofu Fajitas
Easy Spaghetti Casserole
Stuffed Green Bell Peppers
Cinnamon Buckwheat Crepes with Raspberry Sauce
Best-Ever Orange Oatmeal Cookies
Spicy Black Bean Dip
Parmesan Kale Chips

You’ll also find quick-and-easy meals and simple recipes for homemade staples like nondairy milks, nut butters, and even Mock Parmesan cheese. With allergy-friendly and vegan options and kid-approved favorites, The Gluten-Free Vegetarian Family Cookbook will help you satisfy your family’s tastebuds and support their wellness.


  • Midwest Book Review, March 2015
    “Palate pleasing, appetite satisfying recipes…Certain to be an enduringly popular addition to personal, family, and community library cookbook collections.”

    Portland Press-Herald (ME), 4/1/15
    “With gluten-free eating on the rise, O'Brien shows how to avoid overly processed gluten-free products by cooking more meals from scratch.”

    San Francisco Book Review, 4/22/15
    “Features a wide array of recipes…and the photos will make your mouth water.”

    Taste for Life, May 2015
    “Family-friendly recipes…Offer[s] inventive ways to use fresh produce.”

    Midwest Book Review, May 2015
    “Offers a more specific focus than most gluten-free cookbooks, narrowing menus to vegetarian cooking and including the desserts and snacks which usually are particularly challenging in a gluten-free diet. It comes from a gourmet cook and healthy-eating coach who has developed over a hundred dishes for every meal…These are surprisingly quick and easy to produce, rely on homemade staples rather than store-bought, expensive substitutes for gluten, and include allergy-friendly, kid-approved options. Add a centerfold of color photos and you have a real winner.”
