Robin Robertson has built a publishing record of successful books in the vegetarian/vegan category. Her earlier cookbook, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow-Cooker, established her bona fides as an expert on the creative use of slow-cookers, and her entire body of work speaks to her ingenuity in the kitchen and the breadth of enticing ingredients and flavors with which she works. Fresh from the Vegan Slow-Cooker provides practical guidence on how to work with different models of slow-cookers, taking into account the sizes of various machines, the variety of settings they offer, and the quirks and personalities of each device. She addresses any lingering skepticism readers may have about whether slow-cookers can have delicious, meat-free applications, and she shows how to take into account the water content of vegetables and the absorptive qualities of grains when vegan slow-cooking.   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, such as a Rustic Pot Pie Topped with Chive Biscuits and 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.  Beyond the mains, there are chapters devoted to snacks and appetizers, desserts, breads and breakfasts, and even one on drinks.  The many soy-free and gluten-free recipes are 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.

I now <3 my slow cooker! I’ve had my slow cooker for about 5 years, and I never used it to make anything except vegan chili and some applesauce. It seemed to me to be a waste of cupboard space…until now. I have attempted to use other vegan slow cooker books, but with no success. Recipes always failed. I’m not sure it it was lack of recipe testing or what. Ms. Robertson’s book has yielded nothing but excellent food. The times and quantities are spot-on, though I do tend to add a smidge more salt. I’m just a picky…

Another Great Book from Robin Robertson! I’m a big fan of my slow cooker and an even bigger fan of Robin Robertson, so I was super excited when I heard she was working on a slow cooker book. I use my slow cooker a lot during the cooler months, as I love coming home to a hot, cooked meal waiting for me. If you’re new to slow cookers, you’re in luck, because Robin starts the book out with an extensive chapter on slow cooker basics. Everything you could possibly imagine cooking up in your slow cooker is covered here, from snacks and…

Takes a lot of the effort out of vegan cooking While I am not committed to vegetarianism, much less veganism, I do prefer to eat less animal product than I used to, and to that end, I’m always interested in cookbooks that take a lot of the effort out of cooking tasty, animal-free meals. Robin Robertson has done a good job compiling 200 different recipes that run the gamut of vegan food options from appetizers through desserts, drinks and condiments. Even if you only go to animal-free sides and non-entree courses, this is a good…
