I thought I was pretty crafty with my slow cooker until I got my hands on The Vegan Slow Cooker. Slow-cooker fanatic Kathy Hester showed me how to make enchilada casserole, lasagna, and even bread without heating up the oven. Brownies, too! Wowser is the word for this friendly, delicious way to cook. She then gives some slow cooker basics: how to choose one, how to start with caution so you don't burn down your house, and how to substitute ingredients to make her recipes work for you. The section on kitchen staples is worth the price of the book alone. Learn to make your own Smoky Ketchup, Fruit Butter, and Balsamic Onion Marmalade, plus two flavors of seitan. Try cooking whole small pumpkins in your slow cooker for BPA-free pumpkin puree without the struggle of cutting and cleaning raw pumpkin. Other chapters cover slow-cooker classics such as soups, stews, curries, and sandwich fillings, made flavorful with plenty of spices, coconut milk, lemon grass, and lime. Hester takes her slow cooker around the world to make Baigan Bharta (eggplant curry), Thai Red Curry Tofu and Veggies, Mojito Pinto Beans, and Better-Than-The-Classic Shepard's Pie. Then she really unleashes her slow-cooker super powers with Foolproof Focaccia, Whole-Wheat Pumpkin Ginger Bread, and Peach-Almond Breakfast Polenta. You don't need to be a vegan to get lots of ideas and delight from The Vegan Slow Cooker. Mouth-watering photographs provide inspiration. Hester's encouraging, humorous style will give even new cooks the gumption to take their slow cookers beyond pot roast.

This is an absolute lifesaver. I got this to try to save some time and money since my family is so busy already. I was looking for something that would have healthy, adequate meals, because that's what I've come to expect from cookbooks. But these are delicious!! Even my 10-year-old, arguably the pickiest eater on the planet, loves the food! I'm so grateful I bought this. Plus with it in nook format, I can keep a copy on my phone (it's the only book I have there) so that I can see what I need while I'm in the grocery store. I can't recommend it enough.

I haven't tested many recipes in this book but it inspired me to buy a slow cooker. I didn't think as a vegan you could do much with a slow cooker. This book proved me wrong and I'm so very glad it did! I own most vegan cookbooks and use them all but I work two jobs and this slow cooker cookbook, has made my life so much easier! My body thanks me, if you only buy one cookbook (beyond veganomicon) I highly recomend this one especially if you're looking for something to make life easier or a slow cooker cookbook. Even if yiu're not vegan!

I never thought you could make vegan recipes for a slow cooker but Kathy Hester has done a nice job of creating some wonderful foods. I have yet to try any of them out but spent the afternoon reading the book cover to cover and am excited about getting the opportunity to start utilizing them once I gather up some of the ingredients. What especially interested me was the recipes for her Chickeny and Beef Bouillion as well as the seitan recipes. This will be GREAT money savers. The only thing I found wrong with the e-book version was there were some incorrect page references in the text as well as the index. Other than that the e-book version wasn't too difficult to move around in once I created some bookmarks, etc.

I was disappointed to find that many - way too many - of the recipes involved fake meat, seitan, tempeh, etc.  Although we do eat that stuff, we don't eat it often, and I would prefer recipes that are vegan in and of themselves, not vegan because I dig around for "vegan chicken flavored bouillon", fake beef, etc.  To me that is not really a vegan (or vegetarian) cookbook, as I could buy an omnivore cookbook and make substitutions myself if that's what I wanted.

All I can say is don't knock it until you try it! Great recipes for herbivores and carnivores. :)

You’ll find yummy recipes even if you’re not a vegan! I haven’t tried very many of the recipes so far but the ones I’ve tried have been delicious and I have a growing list of “must try’s” on the horizon. Book is easy to read, easy to follow, and recipes are easy to make. If you are looking for yummy food that works well in a slow cooker, look no further! And you can enjoy whether you are vegan or not! It’s a win win!

Haven't made it yet, but the idea of doing this in the slow cooker & not the oven is great! Especially in the summer! I'm heading to the grocery store tomorrow!
