"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

For a long time, I was not the biggest fan of the slow cooker because most of the recipes I found were comprised of processed ingredients and just plain boring and bland. And let's not forget the slow cooker recipes that require a zillion preparation steps, thus defeating the purpose of an appliance that is meant to save some time. Recently, though, that's been changing, as I've been compiling and developing a lot more recipes that fit my desire for flavorful, healthy recipes using wholesome ingredients. And that are quite easy to throw together. This book is a wonderful piece of that collection and I can't wait to try more of the recipes, because they all meet exactly what I'm looking for.
Besides great food, Hester delivers others requirements of a great cookbook: simple ingredient lists; clear, concise instructions (that even highlight the steps which can be completed the night before); and options for substitutions to meet various dietary needs.
Confession: I made the Chorizo and Sweet Potato Enchilada Casserole twice and two batches of the Do-it Yourself Chai Concentrate last week.
I've been vegan for awhile, so I don't really miss the meat options and don't regularly eat the vegan 'meat substitutes'. This book is rife with meat substitute dishes. But before you pass this by just hear me out.
Slow cookers are traditionally used to create warm, filling, and hearty one plate (or bowl) dishes. Stews, chowders, soups, etc... So I feel this is why the author used a lot of the vegan meat substitutions in these recipes.
Any dish in this recipe book can be modified easily. You can leave out the meat substitute or change it out for standard tofu, seitan, or other tempeh. Regardless, there are variations you can make while keeping the heart of the recipe intact.
The recipes include some pretty out there dishes. There is a recipe for making bread in the slow cooker! There are a lot of various dishes and they all seem pretty easy and so far all have been tasty. Again, I would recommend some slight modifications or tweaking for your personal style.
I wouldn't say that this is the end all vegan recipe book. That's why I give four stars. It's a nice addition to a vegan cookbook collection, but the following are the books I recommend (in order from my favorite): Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook,Viva Vegan!: 200 Authentic and Fabulous Recipes for Latin Food Lovers,Becoming Vegan: The Complete Guide to Adopting a Healthy Plant-Based Diet,The Happy Herbivore Cookbook: Over 175 Delicious Fat-Free and Low-Fat Vegan Recipes.
Update: I have made more of the recipes and have a couple of comments. Some recipes are obviously 'off'. The cheater chili for example: No indicator of water or vegetable stock to be added. If you rinse and drain the beans and corn, and dice the tomatoes (properly), then you will have virtually no liquid. I added a couple of cups of water and some tomato paste. And it was rather bland (called for just garlic, salt, and pepper) so I added some chili powder, cumin, Secret Ardvark habanero (secret weapon!), and some diced, chili powder crusted tofu. It went from ho hum to wowie! So just be aware that many of the recipes just require a tad bit of tweaking for your personal taste. It's not perfect, but it's a great guide to get you started, or to give you inspiration.
