Editorial Reviews:

Vegetarians can enjoy all the benefits of slow cookers.

Slow cookers have been rediscovered by a whole new generation of busy families, students and professionals. Those on the go love being able to throw wholesome ingredients into a cooker, close the lid and come home to a hot, satisfying meal at the end of the day. However, most slow cooker cookbooks feature recipes using meat, poultry and fish, and include only a few vegetarian recipes.

125 Best Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes features outstanding vegetarian recipes including:

  • Cannelloni with Tomato Eggplant Sauce
  • Three-Bean Chili with Bulgur
  • Louisiana Ratatouille
  • Rice and Bean Casserole with Cheese and Chilies
  • Creamy Leek, Potato and Mushroom Stew with Blue Cheese
  • Succulent Succotash
  • Potato-and-Cauliflower Dal with Spicy Shallots
  • Cider Baked Beans
  • Meatless Moussaka
  • Mushroom and Artichoke Lasagna.

Also provided is useful information about the basics of slow cooking and tips like using whole leaf herbs and spices. Common pantry ingredients are particularly helpful in turning out great-tasting and innovative slow cooker food.

Summary: Great, easy to use book
Comment: You don't need any weird ingredients to follow the recipes in this book. I have a slow cooker with stoneware that I can use on stove-top, in the microwave and in the oven. Therefore I do not mind that the recipes include prep steps. I put my onions in my stoneware, place it on the stove and then I place it in the slow cooker and I'm done. And the food tastes so much better when you follow the prep steps. Overall a real good vegetarian slow cooker book.

Summary: Disappointing
Comment: I'll admit, any vegetarian cookbook with "slow cooker" in the title is a must for me; however, this cookbook was disappointing. Most receipes require "pre cooking" and there were but a handful of actually delicious items. It's not that crucial to have, and for goodness sake don't pay full price for it.

Summary: Great recipes for stressed working parents!
Comment: Great book for working parents who want healthy families! True, there is some precooking required for recipes, but every good slow-cooker recipe out there requires SOME preparation...I usually do the prep while I'm getting dinner ready the night before, then refrigerate overnight and pop it in the slow cooker as I'm walking out the door (most recipes work this way). It's great to come home to the smell of dinner cooking, and knowing you have very little left to do to get dinner on the table!

For those with the larger cookers, like my oval Corning, get a timer to get it right. My first attempt at the mushroom lasagne was overcooked. Got it right the next time with the timer. Lesson learned. The kids LOVED it!

Summary: Great Variety
Comment: This is a great book! There is a great variety and everything has been easy to make, but more a slow cooker cookbook for cooks, than one for someone that wants to plop some food in and have it cooked when they get home from work. The effort is worth it, and the book suggests ways to prepare ahead so you aren't doing everything in the morning.

Summary: If you only had a whole day to cook
Comment: This book requires lot of pre-prepration and ingredients. This book is not for regular use. I did try some of the recipes and they were good, just baked them instead of using slow cooker.
