They are perfect for vegetarian and healthy cooking because slow cooking is a foolproof way to make beans, grains, and root vegetables, in preparations such as Spicy White Bean and Sweet Potato Stew with Collards, Balsamic-Glazed Carrots and Parsnips, and Boston Brown Bread. Stuffed vegetables, such as Bell Peppers Stuffed with Couscous and Lentils, are moist and tender, with none of the oven's dryness. Even desserts, such as Chocolate Fantasy Fondue and Brandy-Laced Pear Brown Betty, are sensational. Chapters on appetizers, soups, stews, beans, vegetables, condiments, breakfasts, desserts, and beverages ensure that nothing is overlooked. A complete introduction provides information on all the latest advances in slow cooker models and accessories.

It can be left unattended; it keeps the kitchen cool on warm days; and it's inexpensive and durable. At last, vegetarians and anyone looking for healthy meal alternatives can take full advantage of this amazing appliance.

From the Back Cover:

PRAISE for FRESH FROM THE VEGETARIAN SLOW COOKER   “Until now most slow cooker cookbooks have been heavily meat-oriented, leaning mightly on processed, preservative-heavy ingredients. Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker changes that. What a good idea! Not just vegetarians, but anyone who needs cooking ease but doesn’t want to sacrifice full flavor or health, will rejoice in this inviting book.” – Crescent Dragonwagon, James Beard Award-winning author of Passionate Vegetarian   “This is a carefully written book with many imaginative recipes. Robin Robertson provides an astonishing array of dishes, a wide variety of flavors, and excellent cooking techniques; you and your entire family will be healthier and happier for her efforts.” –Annemarie Colbin, author of Food and Our Bones and founder of the Natural Gourmet Cookery School, New York City   “Leave it to Robin Robertson to inspire us with such a great idea: Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker will make you want to go out and buy a slow cooker and start cooking these amazing recipes.” – Akasha Richmond, chef and columnist for Vegetarian Times   “Finding ways to prepare delicious and satisfying slow-cooked foods, especially vegetarian dishes, is a challenge for anyone who travels a busy path. I use a slow cooker a lot, and the recipes in Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker entice and inspire me.” – Jesse Cool, author of Your Organic Kitchen and Breakfast in Bed
