For each story there are 2-3 recipes: a main dish and either a side dish or two, and some stories have desserts. There are 19 maindishes for vol 1.
There are 3 that are meatless:
mac and cheese
There are 6 that I think could made meatless by leaving out the meat or substituting tofu (or something else)
egg rolls, quiche, casserole, apple stew (which calls for pork but I think would be lovely with lentils), cabbage soup, chicken pie.
3 are fish based:
1 is meatless, but based on beef broth, so I'm not sure where to stick it:
5 seem so dependent on meat that I don't think there is any hope for them:
chicken and dumplings
That only equals 18, so I've left something out, but you get the idea.
All of the side dishes and desserts and meatless, so even on a week like Lentil where the main dish is Lemon Chicken and just wouldn't work for you, you would have a recipe for the most delicious lemon bars in the world.
The recipes for vol 2 seem to be even less dependant on meat.
My kids loved helping when we made our special FAIR meal and they were more willing to try new foods when they related to a book.
