Awesome recipe book for teens who are wanting to learn how to cook, or those that already know how to cook and just need some new recipes to try out.
Full of recipes sent in by teens for teens. Worth it!

This a great book filled with simple recipies by teens for teens. These range from breakfast foods to soups, salads, and sandwiches, to snakcs and sides to main courses to desserts. Best of all, this is a cookbook dedicated to being green and healthy. This doesn't necessarily mean becoming a vegetarian (there are meat recipies in here!). It means being eco-friendly and eating ethically. It means becoming aware of the impact of our diets and choice of food on the world. If you're interested in le ...more

The Green Teen Cookbook is filled with simple eco-minded recipes created by teens for teens to use. However, there truly is no age limit to those who want to create delicious quick meals, snacks and desserts. Anyone can learn from these recipes!

The 'Rough Guide' to eating healthy and seasonally was a great intro for my kids to learn about how important it is to eat the right food for vitamins and growth. There is also an intro on the difference of Vegetarianism and Flexitarian, which also helpe

I wish The Green Teen Cookbook had been around when I was a teen! This beautiful cookbook has something to offer to teens of all dietary habits - vegan to carnivore. The recipes, all submitted by teens, are well-balanced and most are simple enough for even a kitchen novice to make. No complicated methods or special tools needed. One really nice feature is the inclusion of "Seasonal" options. For example, fruit salads for spring, summer, fall, winter featuring the produce that is most likely avai ...more

As someone who loves food and is always striving to eat healthier, The Green Teen Cook Book was right up my alley. This cook book is a great cook book to have in your collection no matter your age or experience. My teen years were not that long ago and my cooking experience is about the same as back then ha ha, so this was also a great encouragement to appreciate every step while preparing what I eat.

The Green Teen Cook Book starts off with an introduction from the editor and a brief note on kit
Aug 21, 2014 rated it liked it
The name is catchy, the ease of use as a functioning cookbook works well (pages open wide), the recipes seem pretty easy to follow, but the tone of the entries inside are set by the images on the front cover, and they are just not enticing for a teen looking for something to start from. Having teens myself, they were excited about the cookbook, especially with one being in the pastry arts at the local tech school, but it because quickly evident that these recipes were just not the kind they had ...more

This is a wonderful addition to the teen cookbooks in existence. It has short sections on safety in the kitchen and how to eat healthy, locally, organically, etc.

The recipes are mostly simple, easy to make (yet healthy to eat) dishes, but there are a few slightly more complicated ones as well. There is a great selection of vegetarian recipes as well as recipes that use meat. The ingredients are mostly things that I keep in my kitchen anyway, so I didn't have to go on any obscure ingredient hunts

"How does a cookbook fit in with my interest in environmental books that provide an immersion in some kind of natural experience? Pam McElroy, one of the editors of The Green Teen Cookbook, Recipes for all Seasons Written by Teens, for Teens, (Laurane Marchive is the other) writes that "When it comes to food, going green" is, in great part, about shopping seasonally and buying locally. That's a lifestyle, a daily experience. McElroy also says, "Our eating habits form such an important part of ou ...more

I really liked the sell of this book: a cookbook organized by seasonable ingredients with all recipes submitted by teens for teens (complete with name, picture, and short sentence about why they like this recipe). I would have been pathetically grateful for this when I left for college (especially when I got it in my head to do something "fancy", ie. not pasta-roni) or late high school. I could have used the help (and the honey prawns with chile and rosemary, page 102). ...more

The introductory essays on eating healthfully, seasonally, organically, vegetarian, locally and fairtrade set the stage for something great.... Then recipes called for instant noodles, canned ingredients, chorizo, and ribeye etc. It's not all of them, but it's enough for me to feel like this book was a bait-and-switch. ...more
Good for people who are not well-informed on the subject. Measurements and some unfamiliar words (such as aubergine instead of eggplant) can be a bit tricky for American readers.
