Review: The Vegetarian Slow Cooker Cookbook

Updated on March 12, 2011

Whether you are a vegetarian or if you're just looking for a way to add more vegetable, legume, and grain dishes to your cooking repertoire, you're sure to find The Vegetarian Slow Cooker cookbook by Judith Finlayson to be a valuable resource in your kitchen.

With more than 200 great recipe ideas for preparing delicious meatless recipes in your slow cooker, this book is sure to become a go-to resource when you're looking for something easy to prepare for family meals, special occasions, and entertaining events.

Improve Your Family's Diet with Slow Cooker Recipes

One of the reasons that people don't eat as healthfully as they should is the fact that they just don't have the time to cook scratch recipes made with fresh ingredients after busy days at work and taking care of other obligations.

That's what makes slow cooker meal preparation such a great option for those who are trying to find a way to improve their at-home eating habits – or avoid eating out so much – while not having to spend a great deal of time in the kitchen.

When you learn how to make several vegetarian dishes in your slow cooker, you can spend a few minutes in the kitchen first thing in the morning, and then come home to a warm, nourishing, fully cooked dish at the end of your busy day. What could be better – or more convenient – than that?

About The Vegetarian Slow Cooker Cookbook

In this book, you'll find a number of foolproof recipes for tasty vegetarian dishes that are designed to be prepared in a slow cooker. While all of the recipes are vegetarian, more than 130 of the recipes are appropriate for individuals who are following a vegan diet.

A few of the great dishes that you'll learn how to make in The Vegetarian Slow Cooker cookbook include:

  • Black Bean and Salsa Dip
  • Braised Carrots with Capers
  • Braised Sweet Onions with Balsamic Butter
  • Caramelized Onion Quiche
  • Chilly Dilly Eggplant
  • Cumin Beets
  • Olive-Studded Strata with Tomatoes
  • Red Beans and Greens
  • Spanish-Style Chickpeas with Spinach
  • Steamed Brown Bread
  • Squash with Quinoa and Apricots
  • Many other delicious recipes
