Editorial Reviews

Review

Lots of good advice for cooks who have never used a slow cooker as well as some specialized advice on going meatless in the slow cooker. (Myrna Collins Appleton Post-Crescent 2005-02-02)

The "vegan-friendly" recipes I've tried have been fine, but nothing I felt drawn to return to.
S. Stone
In the month that we've had this book, we've made about 10 of the recipes from the book, and truly, all were delicious!

I love 125 Best Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes because: - The dozen recipes that I've tried have all been outstanding.

This is the best vegetarian slow cooker cookbook that I've found, though there really aren't many others. I own two vegetarian slow cooker cookbooks and this is the only one I use. In the year that I've owned this book I've made close to 30 of the recipes. The photos in the book are enticing and the recipes are easy to follow and for the most part have been flavorful and popular with my family. I especially like the spicy recipes like Caribbean Pepper Pot Soup and Red Lentil and Carrot Soup with Coconut. There have been a few duds- Cannelloni with Tomato Eggplant Sauce didn't turn out well from my slow cooker. I have come to really embrace the technique of precooking the vegetables as suggested by Finlayson since this lends much better flavor and texture to the finished dishes. I am back today to purchase a copy for my sister, also a vegetarian and soon to be a regular slow cooker.

I am a vegetarian with two young daughters - and no time to cook. On top of that my kids are allergic to dairy and soy. I had no idea what to cook for our family and how to find the time to cook it until I found this cookbook. Every recipe I have tried so far (and there aren't that many I haven't tried) has been really good. I start the recipe the night before, stick the slow cooker insert in the refrigerator, and then pull it out and get it going in the morning. There aren't that many vegetarian slow cooker cookbooks out there, and the others I've found have been duds, but this one is a keeper!

I love this book! I received this book as a gift. In the month that we've had this book, we've made about 10 of the recipes from the book, and truly, all were delicious! We prepare the dishes in the evening, and the next morning we plug in the Crock-pot on our way out. We've had no disappointments with this book so far!

This is an excellent cookbook, I have made several of the dishes featured, the cook times are spot on the recipes are easy to follow, use ingredients that you are likely to have on hand and, most importantly, everthing I've tried so far has been delicious. The only complaint is that she is a bit heavy handed with the salt. I have had good results omitting or reducing by half the amount of salt called for in the recipes.

I obviously purchased this book for recipes to make in my slow cooker. Since just about every recipe requires pre-cooking, I simply won't be using it; it's just more trouble than I'm willing to go through. It's not just browning onions in the slow cooker, but cooking eggplant, peppers, etc. If I were going to go through all that, I don't need to add another step of using the slow cooker. This was just not what I was hoping, or looking, for.

When my husband gave up meat for Lent, I wasn't sure what I was going to do - but this book was a great help. I've only tried some of the main course recipes so far and excepting the Mushroom and Artichoke Lasagna (a total bust- looked nothing like the picture and didn't taste so hot), all have been good. All the recipes require skillet cooking as a first step, but when I've been pressed for time on occasion, I just put everything in the old fashioned way and couldn't taste a difference. Not sure what that says about my palette, but sure saved on time and clean up. Finally, I really like it when Finlayson gives serving suggestions with the recipes.

This book is a great variation on the traditional meat slow cooker recipes. I have found Judith Finalyson's other slow cooker books to be easy and foolproof and this one is no exception. I love these recipes for entertaining whether or not the guests are vegetarian - from appetizers to dessert they make cooking a joy.

I was hesitant to purchase this book because I'm Vegan and I spend a lot of my time revamping vegetarian cookbooks to fit that lifestyle, having to omit and replace, but this book was fantastic! There are many, many items in the book that are vegan "friendly" and I have to say, they are totally delicious. Last night I made the Sweet Potato and Barley Risotto - outstanding. Needed just a little dab of soy milk (or soy butter) for a creamier texture, but it was fantastic and didn't require any salt for flavor whatsoever.

The only shock for me was the amount the recipe made. The recipe suggests it serves 4. Even as a main dish, if that was a serving, I would be big as a house. It could easily serve 8-10 with 1 cup servings. 1 1/2 cups barley really expands when cooked!

I am thrilled I bought this and would recommend it to vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters trying to find variety alike!
