"Hester, who blogs at http://www.healthyslowcooking.com and http://www.busyvegan.com, has written a no-nonsense, easy-to-understand guide to vegan slow cooking. The first chapter is a brief introduction to the slow cooker, with an ingredient substitution list. In the next 12 chapters, readers learn how to make soups, stews, curries, casseroles, breads, party dips, and desserts, among other items. Hester draws her inspiration primarily from American (Chick’n Mushroom Casserole; Corn-Tastic Tex-Mex Loaf), Indian (Baigan Bharta; Easy Veggie Chickpea Biryani), and Asian (Ma Po Tofu; Thai Red Curry Tofu and Vegetables) cuisine, but many other culinary traditions are represented. Soy- and gluten-free dishes are clearly labeled, but a list of these dishes isn’t included in a separate index. Dishes are indexed by the main ingredient, so Tofu Bouillabaise and the Smoked Tofu and Stars soup recipe are both found under 'tofu.' In a larger cookbook, this would be detrimental; here, it is merely annoying. VERDICT: This is a great slow-cooker cookbook with scrumptious dishes featuring ingredients that are easy to find in any major grocery store." - Library Journal XPress

The seitan recipes in here alone is worth the buy. There's a beef and a chicken style version. I've tried several other recipes with somewhat mixed reviews. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Kelsie
I really like this cookbook! I've been relying more heavily on my slow cooker since I started a full-time job on the other side of town. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Shannon R.
This book came in a timely manner and is a great addition to my cooking library. Just waiting for cooler weather to start dirtying the pages as I use the recipes.Published 5 months ago by Linda A. Wilson
