Review

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.

I was a tester for this cookbook and have made about 40 recipes from it already. This cookbook is amazing for working people who live alone or in families of 2-3...never before have I seen a cookbook focused solely on a small slow cooker! This is my favorite of Kathy Hester's cookbooks, and that's saying a lot because I LOVE her recipes!

Most of these recipes come together in 7-9 hours, with options for leaving the food in for 10+ hours for those who have a longer work commute. It's dreamy to come home to a ready-made dinner, and have just 1-2 more servings of leftovers. With larger slow cookers, I better enjoy the recipe because it will be my lunch ALL WEEK...this is so much better. There are other recipes that take just 1.5 hours or so, including delicious desserts, hot chocolates, and a wonderful recipe of tofu and green beans in a black bean sauce. How lovely to start dessert in your slow cooker, and have it ready by the time dinner is complete!

As usual, Kathy Hester makes sure the majority of her recipes are gluten-free, oil-free, and soy-free for those with special diets or sensitivities. Many other recipes can be made this way, as well. She regularly uses testers who try her recipes without the above ingredients, so that they are truly allergy-friendly! The cookbook serves to familiarize one with the small slow cooker, and since I test a number of recipes I feel like I've taken a cooking class each time I work through her cookbooks. I feel like an expert at the little slow cooker, and absolutely love it!

Hester includes a chapter on layered meals, full balanced one-dish meals like "Thanksgiving Dinner", a portobello and baked potato dinner, and one of my favorite recipes: tempeh layered with apples, cabbage, onions, and caraway seeds. Yum!

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.
