The slow cooker, America’s favorite kitchen appliance, has become increasingly versatile and sophisticated, and now it can support a heart-smart diet, too. Under the spell of its low heat, lean meats, whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits transform into succulent meals.

Braised Curry-Rubbed Chicken slow cooks among Middle Eastern spices, including ginger, cumin, cinnamon, and curry, in a pool of citrus juice and honey. Cioppino with White Wine features a saucy tomato base that simmers until scallops, mussels, and bite-size pieces of mild fish are added to finish this hearty fish stew. Vegetables, beans, and beef stew together to make for a mouthwatering rustic Country Cassoulet, and chopped zucchini, tomato, and basil along with bulgur and provolone cheese are packed into Italian Artichoke-Stuffed Bell Peppers that cook until tender. With some easy planning before or after the slow cooking, such as browning meats or boiling water for pasta, you’ll have tasty meals chock full of good nutrition on your kitchen table night after night.

This cookbook also includes nineteen full-color photographs as well as information on the benefits of slow cooking and how a slow cooker can help you eat well. The best way to ensure good food comes out of your cooker is to put only good-for-you ingredients into it, and with American Heart Association Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook, you’ll learn how much your slow cooker can do for you while you’re enjoying a healthy lifestyle.

Shrimp Jambalaya

The word "jambalaya" is thought to come from jambon, the French word for ham. It's a given, then, that ham is one of the primary ingredients of jambalaya; however, you don't need much when you use smoked ham and chop it finely to distribute its distinct flavor throughout the dish.

Serves 4: 1½ cups per serving

Slow cooker size/shape:
3-to 4½-quart round or oval

Slow cooking time:
5 to 6 hours on low plus 30 minutes on high, OR 2½ to 3 hours on high plus 30 minutes on high

1 14.5-ounce can no-salt-added tomatoes, undrained
1 cup water (if cooking on low) or 1½ cups water (if cooking on high)
½ cup finely chopped onion
1 medium rib of celery, sliced crosswise
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
2 ounces lower-sodium, low-fat smoked ham, all visible fat discarded, finely chopped (about ⅓ cup)
2 teaspoons dried parsley, crumbled
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
⅛ to ¼ teaspoon cayenne
1 medium dried bay leaf
8 ounces raw medium shrimp, thawed if frozen, peeled, rinsed, and patted dry
1 cup frozen cut okra, thawed
1 cup uncooked instant brown rice
¼ cup snipped fresh parsley

In the slow cooker, stir together the tomatoes with liquid, water, onion, celery, bell pepper, ham, parsley, oregano, garlic, thyme, cayenne, and bay leaf. Cook, covered, on low for 5 to 6 hours or on high for 2½ to 3 hours, or until the vegetables are tender.

If using the low setting, change it to high. Quickly stir in the shrimp, okra, and rice and re-cover the slow cooker. Cook for 30 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Discard the bay leaf.

Serve the jambalaya sprinkled with the parsley.
