5.0 out of 5 stars Slow Cooking made Easy & Delicious!, September 25, 2012
This review is from: Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker: 200 Ultra-Convenient, Super-Tasty, Completely Animal-Free Recipes (Paperback)
I had the pleasure to test recipes for this amazing cookbook, and I was blown away by each and every recipe. The recipes range from basics, such as a pot of beans and homemade seitan, to amazing entrees and desserts, such as Chickpea and Mushroom Tagine, Seitan Pot au Feu, and Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. And don't forget to make the Warm and Creamy Artichoke-Spinach Dip--you won't be able to stop digging in!

I personally bought a slow cooker for this particular book, and it was one of the best purchases I've ever made. This book has spawned a love affair between me and my slow cooker. How amazing is it to have dinner waiting for you when you get home from work?! It's also a wonderful tool to make staples for your weekly meals, and also serves as a space-saver when making big meals. Why not use your slow cooker to make Green Bean Casserole or Stuffing on Thanksgiving day--you'll find both recipes in the book, and they are delicious. This book has it all and then some!

All of Robin Robinson's books are truly fantastic, and we wouldn't have the plethora of vegan cookbooks without her. You won't regret picking up this book--it's a winner, hands down!

Lyndsay,
Glad you had a chance to test some of these recipes. I am hoping you can answer a question for me please. I notice in the reviews many mentions of pâté, dips, puddings, and other non main course recipes. Being that I am a single male, I am really only interested in easy dinner recipes, so was curious if the book really has 200 one dish dinners in it? To me, dips and puddings are not dinner but a side dish. Thanks for any help.

L.A.,

I would say the majority of the book consists of main dishes. There is an appetizer chapter, and a dessert chapter, but the rest of the chapters consist of meals, including soups, casseroles, stews, and grain dishes. Some of the appetizers can even be turned into main dishes. I honestly don't think you'll be disappointed.

I hope this helps!
Lyndsay

Thanks for responding Lyndsay! I love cooking, but once a week I do like making a 6 qt batch of something and freezing it up for my lazy days. LOL Now I just have to wait until they post that they have fixed the kindle version. Appears in another review that Amazon has the wrong book downloading when you purchase the kindle version,

Thanks again,
Larry
