Although Nikki Dinki’s book, More Veggies Please!: Easy Kid-Approved Meals and Family-Friendly Comfort Foods with Surprising Veggie Twists is geared toward kid-friendly meals, it is also a perfect cookbook for those who have picky husbands who need to eat more vegetables and healthy meals. Husbands often get pickier as they age (mine’s 81) and it gets harder and harder to feed them and hopefully keep them alive and well. Dinki’s cookbook has dozens of recipes that will appeal even to my stubborn (but adorable) husband, and she has used her imagination to create great meals that everyone will love.

Spinach isn’t a much-loved vegetable and Dinki has included it in several recipes that will appeal to everyone. Eggplant is another vegetable that isn’t loved, especially by children, but as an ingredient in meatballs and other dishes, it adds nutrition and flavor. Butternut squash and sweet potatoes are also used often in this cookbook.

The recipes in this book are worth trying; it’s impressive how the author has taken vegetables and beans and inserted them secretly into dishes without giving it away that they are healthy. Children (and husbands) won’t know they’re eating healthy, but they will know that they like what they are eating.

This cookbook would make a good gift for cooks with small children. It has enough tempting dishes that everyone will love, and those dishes have been made much healthier than their traditional counterparts. My queue of meals to try keeps getting longer and longer as I try recipes from this cookbook and sample the dishes. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to eat healthy.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
