It is most timely that Finlayson's tenth cookbook will appeal to a wide range of tastes including the flexitarian, a sometime vegetarian. (Judy Creighton Hamilton Spectator 2010-02-05)

The Vegetarian Slow Cooker contains tantalizing and foolproof recipes in chapters including: Bread and Breakfast, Starters and Snacks, Soups, Fondues and Savories, Mostly Veggies, Pasta and Grains, and Desserts.... This book is full of everything, great colorful glossy pages of photos, tips, I would recommend it to those looking for more vegetarian recipes.

Format: Paperback
The Vegetarian Slow Cooker is a must have for people who are looking to reduce their meat consumption and still have quick and easy to prepare meals. As a busy mom, I really rely on my slow cooker and this cookbook helped me introduce vegetarian meals to my family and still be in and out of the kitchen quickly.

The Vegetarian Slow Cooker contains over 200 vegetarian recipes that can be made in your slow cooker. The cookbook is broken down into 11 chapters. There is an introduction chapter that discusses why the author chose to write a vegetarian slow cooker cookbook. The cookbook contains a very informative section on how to use your slow cooker and includes information on time management, slow cooker basics, understanding your slow cooker and food safety.

The recipe chapters are broken down into Bread and Breakfast, Starters and Snacks, Soups, Fondues and Savories, Mostly Veggies, Pastas and Grains; Beans, Lentils, Tempeh, and Tofu; Sides, and Desserts. Each recipe is featured on one page and there are many gorgeous colorful photographs throughout the cookbook.

The recipes include the recipe title, a brief description of the recipe, a detailed ingredients list that indicates both US and metric measurements, and step by step instructions. There are tips on each page that discuss the type of slow cooker, helpful information on the ingredients and possible substitutions.

The recipes are very easy to follow and the instructions are well written. There are recipes that use a variety of different sized slow cookers ranging from small (1 1/2 quart) to large (5 quart). Not all recipes can be made in all sized slow cookers. However, there are several recipes that can easily be halved to make smaller sizes.

This is definitely a vegan friendly cook book, and I believe every option could be made vegan, with some substitutions. What I found most satisfing was that this was a vegetarian cookbook that was down to earth, unlike many of the cookbooks I have bought in the last ten years and not used - I found several recpies to make right away. They were simple to follow, didn't take a long time and did not require me to be able to perform any advanced cooking maneuvers. I highly recommend this cookbook for any vegetarian looking to make "normal" dishes that non-veggies won't balk at.

I purchased The Vegetarian Slow Cooker recipe book and I am more than pleased with it. The pictures are absolutely gorgeous and also give you an idea of what the recipe should look like as finished product. Many recipes (probably more than half) are vegan friendly. Some do contain dairy and eggs. But, as an aspiring vegan, I found that this cookbook was worth the purchase price. Even most of the recipes that contain dairy and eggs can be substituted out with vegan alternatives. Recipes run the gamut from breakfast, main meals, and desserts. A must have for vegetarians and anyone with a slow cooker!!

I was hoping for a book full of recipes to make the daily feeding of my family a bit easier through the use of a slow cooker. What I received was a book full of recipes I wasn't even interested in trying.

This is not a 'basic vegetarian crock pot cookbook'. These are elaborate, 'gourmet' (if you can call a slow cooker gourmet with a straight face), run to the store(s) to track down special ingredients, utilize your stove and oven, dirty other pots and pans - type recipes.

I went through the book 5 times and only found four recipes (out of more than 200 ?!?) I was interested in trying... I couldn't even find basic recipes I was interested in revising, or using as a base for my own cooking. I really wanted to love this book. I'm returning. Not worth the price at all. I was better off with google.

The food is GOOD, the recipes are easy, but I have three complaints.
The first is that many of the ingredients are not pantry staples. I don't like to go out and buy ingredients for an otherwise basic recipe.
The second is that so often, the recipes require pre-cooking vegetables before throwing them in the crock. To me, that defeats the purpose of using a crockpot!
Finally - and this has nothing to do with the actual food - I keep getting distracted by the titles of these recipes. So many of them are laced or spiked. For example: Arugula-Laced Carmelized Onion Sauce and Mushroom-Spiked Butterbean and Barley Risotto. What's sad about this is that I didn't go LOOKING for those examples. I literally just opened the book to two random pages. Distracting and annoying.

I am a huge fan of Judith Finlayson and own every single one of her cookbooks. She is one of the most brilliant recipe creators out there, and any time I've tried something from one of her books, it's never failed.

My daughter has become a vegetarian and not being an expert on that type of diet, I was uncertain what to make. And, I wasn't sure if the rest of the family would like the same foods. Well, The Vegetarian Slow Cooker put all my doubts to rest.

It has over 100 brand new recipes that appeal to my entire family, it works for me as a busy mom as I just have to pop in a few ingredients in the morning and come home to a delicious and nutritious meal. My slow cooker has become a staple in my everyday routine and I can't imagine not being able to depend on it and Judith's terrific recipes. I highly recommend this book!
