Hester (The Vegan Slow Cooker; The Great Vegan Bean Book) presents a collection of unique small batch recipes, from breakfast to dessert. As in her first slow cookbook, Hester covers staples including stews and unexpected treats such as cookies. The book opens with a brief overview of slow cooking and vegan alternatives for meat and dairy; subsequent recipes introduce both basic ingredients (e.g., nut ricotta, spice blends), as well as hard-to-find items. Dishes such as Cheezy Butternut Squash Macaroni or tamarind tempeh will satisfy a range of palates and diverse dietary needs and preferences. Recipes contain oil, soy, and gluten-free options, and substitutions for many dishes make the most of seasonal vegetables or whatever grains and proteins are on hand. Hester provides a nutritional breakdown of fat, protein, cholesterol, fiber, and calories per serving along with each recipe. The text is accompanied by beautiful photographs, demonstrating that slow-cooked food can be vibrant and colorful. VERDICTVegans, vegetarians, and anyone seeking healthy, appetizing slow cooker recipes in small portions will find this title informative and inspiring. - Library Journal

I love using my slow cookers (I own four in various sizes!) during busy weeks so I can have a hot meal waiting when I get home from work. I already own The Vegan Slow Cooker: Simply Set It and Go with 150 Recipes for Intensely Flavorful, Fuss-Free Fare Everyone (Vegan or Not!) Will Devour and I really like it, but the recipes in that make a LOT of food, and, since it's just my husband and me, we sometimes get sick of having so many leftovers, especially if they don't freeze well. I was excited to get this new cookbook by Kathy Hester since I love that it focuses on smaller portion sizes that are perfect for just one or two people!

The recipes are designed for using a 1.5-quart or liter crockpot, so they're perfectly proportioned for smaller households.

The book is organized as follows:

* Chapter 1 provides a nice overview about how to use your slow cooker effectively

* Chapter 2 focuses on making what Hester calls "pantry staples" -- things like tofu sour cream and nut ricotta that you might want to have on hand for other recipes

* Chapter 3 focuses on breakfast

* Chapter 4 focuses on dips that can be eaten as appetizers or a main meal

* Chapter 5 focuses on soups

* Chapter 6 focuses on stews, curries, and chilis

* Chapter 7 focuses on sandwich and taco fillings

* Chapter 8 focuses on one-pot risottos, pastas, and pasta sauces

* Chapter 9 focuses on full-meal dishes

* Chapter 10 focuses on drinks, syrups, and desserts

There is also a list of recommended shops to order your spices from.

First off, there isn't many slow-cooker books that focus on the 1.5 quart slow cooker. So I am usually stuck trying to do the math from a regular slow cooker recipe. These small cookers also cook different, so doing the math and cutting a recipe in half does not always work.

I cook weekly in my slow cooker, sometimes twice a week. I love not having so many leftovers. I eat generous portions and did not run short on any of the recipes I tried from the book.

This cookbook does not have the same old boring type recipes. Some of my favorites - Ethiopian Tempah Veggie Meal (a layered complete meal in the pot), All in one Thanksgiving (again why dirty another pot?), Indian mashed veggies sandwich or Pav Bhaji, and the Potato, Greens and soy curls (or chickpea) curry. I am looking forward to trying more!

A bonus for those watching their weight - Portion, calories, fat, fiber and protein are listed for each recipe. Thank you for that Kathy.

I have a feeling this book will be used a lot as is Kathy's other Vegan crock pot book. So nice to have some comfort food ready when I get home from work, especially in winter.

I am compelled to add my voice to the chorus of praise for this book. There are three key elements that make it particularly useful for me and my family of 2 at this time:

1.) It is a vegan/plant based book with lots of variety.
2.) It contains recipes for a smaller group/family or single person
3.) The book is very user-friendly and cook times are perfect for overnight/work day meal planning

1.) My husband and I have been following the Happy Herbivore (The Happy Herbivore Cookbook: Over 175 Delicious Fat-Free and Low-Fat Vegan Recipes) recipes/meal plans for the past year and a half or so. While those recipes are generally easy, fast and delicious, there is something to be said for having the option of preparing meals in a slow cooker that I can consume almost immediately when I get home from work after a long, exhausting day. We have grown accustomed to Lindsay Nixon's low- and no-oil recipes, so I was very pleased to find a book for slow-cooking plant-based food that offered low/no oil options and generally does not use very much added fats as such anyway. This has helped us maintain our plant-based lifestyle in a healthy way with more options. I should add that we are also CSA users and I appreciate the versatility of the recipes and indeed the encouragement of the author to use seasonal produce in place of the listed ingredients, where appropriate. It helps us use our CSA, keep our dietary choices in check, and allows for variety from week to week and day to day.

2.) I do not like eating leftovers for more than once or twice after the original meal.

I really wanted to like this bright, colorful cookbook which is full of healthy-looking recipes and wonderful photographs. After getting fed up with adjusting the proportions one too many times, however, I decided to write this less than favorable review.

I wanted to try some new things and swap out some of my meat-full dinners for meatless ones, but almost all the recipes call for a lot more labor than the "set it and forget it" type of slow cooking I would have wanted to see in this book. Many of the recipes call for pre-cooking ingredients or adding more ingredients to the slow cooker to cook for 30 minutes to an hour AFTER the standard 7-9 hour cooking time. I don't know about you, but I'm a grad student and am unlikely to have that kind of time. What is worse, some recipes only call for using the slow cooker for an hour or less -- with the desserts, that's feasible, but with other dishes, I might as well just cook the thing on the stove for 10 minutes instead.

I've also found that many of the recipes incorporate pricey (read: astronomically expensive on my budget) ingredients like unusual spices that I know I won't use very frequently. And I don't know if it's something to do with my beloved little slow cooker or what, but the proportion of liquid ingredients in the recipes is frequently much less than you'd need to properly cook a dish. In the beginning, I followed all the recipes to the letter and they came out scorched on the bottom and uncooked on the top. I think the book was probably tested using an oval slow cooker, which I don't have -- I have the tall, round kind. I also don't own a food processor, so you should also be aware that many of the recipes require that piece of equipment as well. For the life of me, I have no idea how this cookbook got so many positive reviews. Save your money and just use the interwebs.
