Overview

For the millions of home cooks who swear by the ease and convenience of the slow cooker, this book provides a whole new array of healthy, delicious recipes—that don’t rely on canned soup for flavor! And for the millions of vegetarians looking for simple, hearty fare, this book introduces them to the magic of slow cooking.

Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker proves that slow cookers can be used for much more than just tough, inexpensive cuts of meat. They are perfect for vegetarian and healthy cooking because slow cooking is a foolproof way to make beans, grains, and root vegetables, in preparations such as Spicy White Bean and Sweet Potato Stew with Collards, Balsamic-Glazed Carrots and Parsnips, and Boston Brown Bread. Stuffed vegetables, such as Bell Peppers Stuffed with Couscous and Lentils, are moist and tender, with none of the oven’s dryness. Even desserts, such as Chocolate Fantasy Fondue and Brandy-Laced Pear Brown Betty, are sensational.

Chapters on appetizers, soups, stews, beans, vegetables, condiments, breakfasts, desserts, and beverages ensure that nothing is overlooked. A complete introduction provides information on all the latest advances in slow cooker models and accessories. By now the remarkable convenience of the slow cooker is no secret: it’s practically a miracle to come home after a long day out and have dinner ready and waiting. It can be left unattended; it keeps the kitchen cool on warm days; and it’s inexpensive and durable. At last, vegetarians and anyone looking for healthy meal alternatives can take full advantage of this amazing appliance.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Vegetarian cooking instructor Robertson (Vegan Planet) turns her attention to the growing number of slow cooker owners. Starting with Slow Cooker Basics, she takes the user through the ins and outs of the appliance from the size of machine suitable for good results to cooking times and 10 quick tips for cooking success. She also devotes a small section to those vegetarian ingredients, such as seitan, that nonvegetarians may not be familiar with. Branching out from the traditional casseroles and stews so popular in the early days of the slow cooker, she tackles appetizers, soups and desserts as well, using the appliance with great effect to produce vegetable stocks as well as flavorful offerings like the Indian-inspired Curried Cauliflower Soup with Chutney and Cashews as well as Asian-influenced Hot and Sour Soup. The fundamental chilis and stews are not forgotten, but beans and grains so essential to the vegetarian diet put the slow cooker to best use. Pastas and vegetables nicely round out the book. (Jan.)

    Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker: 200 Recipes for Healthy and Hearty One-Pot Meals That Are Ready When You Are

    Robin Robertson's new cookbook is a godsend. I have been stumbling through old-fashioned Crock-Pot cookbooks, trying to convert the recipes that are saturated with animal products into vegetarian meals. Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker is filled with fabulous recipes that anyone can enjoy, and that are very easy to put together, most taking about 20 minutes. And it is great for entertaining. You can whip up the White Bean Cassoulet in the morning and when your guests arrive you can enjoy a glass of wine with everyone and simply serve up the meal in minutes. I love this cookbook!! Another great one from my favorite cookbook author!

    Meat-Free and Marvelous

    This is a 100% vegetarian cookbook with suggestions for making virtually every recipe vegan; there are no "meat-inclusive" recipes. The recipes are primarily soups and stews, but with interesting combinations of ingredients and diverse international flavors. The emphasis is on healthy meals that taste good, and I'm thrilled to finally have a slow cooker recipe book that I can just open and use, without having to make substitutions for animal ingredients. I also appreciate the absence of highly processed vegetarian junk food ingredients.

    Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker: 200 Recipes for Healthy and Hearty One-Pot Meals That Are Ready When You Are

    I have been looking for a vegetarian cookbook for my Crock-Pot for quite a while. Finally Robin Robertson has put out Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. The variety of recipes is amazing. And they are quick and easy to put together. It's very cool to have dinner ready when I walk in the door at night after a long day. This is a great cookbook for vegetarians and vegans, and also those non-vegetarians who are looking for delicious and healthy alternatives to eating meat.

    Nothing Special

    Lots of recipes but very few I'd choose to make and the couple that I have tried weren't worth repeating.

    Wrong e-book; wait until the e-book is sorted out.

    I thought I would get the newer cookbook, since I prefer vegan cooking anyway. However, I believe the content is actually from Robin Robertson's Vegetarian slow cooker book; the table of contents (on the website) appears to match the Vegetarian version, and on my Nook, it actually says it is the Vegetarian version, on each page, but not the cover. I asked Barnes and Noble to look into it and got NO response. It appears to me that this e-book is confused; you may as well get the older vegetarian version until Barnes and Noble sorts it out.

    Excellent Food - Must Have for Vegetarians

    Lots of great variances on traditional comfort foods. Nice variety from easy-to-make to more complicated and fancy.

    more from this reviewer

    redundant

    Most of the recipes are pretty much the same. Most are soups and also meat-inclusive. Minimal number of vegetarian selections.
