Creative Vegan Cooking! Cooking with a slow cooker never entered my mind until I read the first chapter of this book, which got me excited to buy a slow cooker! The book not only explains how to use one, it contains a good variety of recipes – from baking (!) to soups and stews, and much more – including Italian, Mexican, Asian and Indian recipes.

“The Vegan Slow Cooker” is an eminently practical cookbook for singles and families alike. The recipes are chock-full of tasty, healthy ingredients that both vegans and non-vegans will love (in fact, your non-vegan friends and family members may never know the difference unless you tell them!) As a bonus – if you like lots of instruction on safety, how-to’s, substitutions, special diets, and even fun facts with your cookbook, you will definitely appreciate this author’s approach.

This is a great resource for vegans and would-be vegans alike, and the tips for using slow cookers successfully was an added bonus! It was wonderful to learn more about cooking with meat alternatives with step-by-step instructions that were easy to follow.

I have had a slow cooker for years and rarely use it because I only know a few recipes.  I am a vegetarian, not vegan, but this is an excellent compilation of unique, healthy recipes.  There are quite a few delicious soups which I love because they are not cream based.  A lot of these recipes take 5-7 hours so depending on my schedule I make things the night before and they are ready in the morning, or when I come home for lunch I will throw something together that is usually ready by dinner time.

I was thrilled to purchase this book and have more vegan dishes to enjoy.  As a pescetarian, I don’t eat much meat, so these recipes are perfect.  I love that they’re so detailed, yet simple.  I’m excited to continue using this book in the kitchen for a long time.  I also appreciate the helpful intro it includes.  You won’t regret purchasing this one!

Vegan Slow Cooker for Beginners includes a plethora of healthy recipes that are so delicious that people with any dietary preferences will enjoy them. Readers will be surprised at the variety of vegan options that can be made in a slow cooker, such as cobbler, tacos, and apricot butter. The book introduces novice cooks to slow-cooking basics as well as detailed advice on how to make vegan staples, such as preparing tofu, tempeh, beans, rice, and seitan.

Great cookbook for those new to vegan cooking. The recipes neatly organized into breakfast, appetizer, main course and dessert formats. Recipes are easy to follow and surprisingly delicious for those who aren't to familiar with vegan cooking. They cover a variety of different ethic styles of cooking as well Indian, Mexican and Middle Eastern based dishes. The recipes call for a fair amount of canned ingredients but there is also an easy to follow conversion section for those who prefer using fresh/beans, more economical and healthier. All in all a great book for someone new to vegan cooking and by using a slow cooker it makes it more feasible with today's busy lifestyles.

Vegan Slow Cooker for Beginners is a great resource cookbook that educates beginner cookers on how to create vegan cuisine using a slow cooker/crockpot. Helping to eliminate the time-consuming commitment of traditional food preparation, the book breaks down recipes housed under breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks categories and gives best slow cooker methods for each individualized recipe.

 I would recommend this cook book for vegans and carnivores alike. It is complete,  from beginning to end, including which crock pot to buy! You will want to try every recipe,  from every chapter.  Loaded with healthy and easy fix recipes,  I predict it will be your “go to” cookbook for every occasion.

If you are new to being a Vegan eater and looking for ways to cook healthy meals without sacrificing taste and variety, this book is a great and informative starting point. “The Vegan Cookbook for Beginners” is an easy to read and follow slow cooker cookbook. The book begins with an introduction of the different reasons many have made the lifestyle choice. I would also recommend this book for someone that has difficulty chewing. There are a variety of recipes in several categories: Breakfast, snacks, sides, appetizers, soups, stews and chilies, beans and grains, vegetables, meat alternatives, international cuisine, saving the best for last, desserts. I am looking forward to preparing a few meals for upcoming dinner parties. {SD}

You might find some of these unique and surprisingly un-crockpot-like recipes on the internet these days, but what’s better than having them all in one place? This cookbook will teach you the secrets of cooking all three meals, plus desserts, soups, and even snacks without animal products. It’s a must-have for the busy vegan, or even for animal protein lovers who can appreciate a good veggie.

Vegan Slow Cooker for Beginners is intelligently written with approachable instructions for readers at any level of cooking ability. The recipes are all vegan, but with options like Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls, Mexican Bean Dip, Mom’s Vegetable Soup, Baked Bean Chili, and Mac and Cheese, you might not even notice. This book is for anyone looking for a new or healthier way to enjoy food.

This book is great. It has so many simple recipes that you can just throw into the crock pot. They are all vegan recipes so not meat is required. I never knew that there were so many simple vegan recipes that could just be thrown together in the crock pot! I will be using so many of these recipes over and over.

....I am a new "Vegan" and this book TRULY eased my transition. From the very beginning it walks you through everything you need to know about vegan eating, From meat alternatives like tofu to how to prepare your beans for cooking. Being that it is a slow cooker recipe book it also allows you to make these delicious recipes ahead of time. A great plus for the working person!!! By the way, did I say DELICIOUS recipes?!? You bet I did! Spicy Pecans, Macaroni and Cheese, Brown Betty, Tempeh Enchilada Casserole and my favorite, Who Needs Meat Meat Sauce! "The Vegan Slow Cooking for Beginners" is a super book to have in your kitchen. It takes away any misconceptions or insecurities you might have about switching to a healthier lifestyle. amylthornton

As I began to read the opening part of the Vegan Slow Cooker for Beginners, it had a very upbeat tone that slowly started to form into a kind of "info-mercial" style voice in my head but that voice quickly dissipated shortly after reading into the first chapter. It seemed that my mind had been handed over to a very knowledgeable, well spoken and informative vegan cooking tour guide. Great sounding appetizers, breakfast substitutes and snacks that can even appeal to the most novice of vegan cooks.

This cook book is an absolute life-changing help that fits perfectly into a hectic day. I love the recipes that fit my alternative life style, so I never have to worry about which recipe has what in it. I have been bragging about this to all of my girlfriends, and (though they may not be vegan) they have asked me to share some of the recipes!

This is a great book to have in your recipe staple. This book is for everyone: beginners and experts in the slow cooking vegan world. All of the ingredients a person will most likely have on hand and the other ingredients are easily found in your local supermarket. Along with recipes, this book gives the nutritional value of each dish, which I believe is a great addition. I can’t wait to try them all.
