Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker: 200 Ultra-Convenient, Super-Tasty, Completely Animal-Free Recipes
In Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker, Robin Robertson addresses any lingering skepticism readers may have about whether slow cookers can have delicious, meat-free applications. She shows how to take into account the water content of vegetables and the absorptive qualities of grains when vegan slow-cooking, and she provides practical guidance on how to work with different models of slow cookers, with their varying sizes, settings, and quirks and personalities.
Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker includes eleven recipe chapters, four of which focus on main courses. There are homey and comforting foods in the American and European style: a Rustic Pot Pie Topped with Chive Biscuits; a Ziti with Mushroom and Bell Pepper Ragu. And there are lots of East Asian, South and Southeast Asian, and Mexican/Latin dishes too. Beans, which cook slowly under any circumstance, are fabulously well-suited to the slow cooker, and Robertson includes such appealing recipes as a Crockery Cassoulet and a Greek-Style Beans with Tomatoes and Spinach. Eighteen robust chilis and stews—two more categories that do well in the slow cooker—include a warming Chipotle Black Bean Chili with Winter Squash and a surprising but yummy Seitan Stroganoff. The many soy-free and gluten-free recipes are also clearly identified. Altogether, the collection offers readers loads of ways to expand their vegan repertoire and to get maximum value from their investment in a slow cooker.
