I use this book constantly during the winter, when my Crockpot is my best friend. Most slow-cooker books focus a lot on meat, so an all veggie book is a must have for us vegetarians. The results are often so-so, but then crockpots don't make the most exciting food, just the most convenient. I als...

Bland, easy to prepare recipes, many of which require fake meat. I have it so I use it, but I really want to find a (veg) crockpot cookbook with recipes that are more tasty than "hearty". Seems aimed more at people who are transitioning or experimenting with vegetarianism than people who've been...

My slow cooker is my absolute favorite kitchen appliance. I have a great one from West Bend that I have to plug here: It has a 6 qt pot that sits on a heating base. You can put the pot in the oven (to roast veggies to make stock) or on the stovetop (to saute onions or other things before the slow...

Despite the "vegetarian" title, most of the recipes are vegan or easily veganizable. There are so many delicious, hearty, thick soups, stews and chowders waiting for your slow cooker. A lot of veggies & spices open up whole new levels of flavor when slow-cooking, and this cookbook exploits th...

Great cookbook! Although I was disappointed by its complete lack of pictures and expected, because of that, not to like this cookbook very much...I was pleasantly surprised by how many recipes I found myself bookmarking! Lots of great ideas and fresh new ways to cook vegetarian meals. I'm not veg...

It is cold outside and I'm working long hours. Seems like a crockpot of veggie goodness could help, right? This book, however, assumes I'll wake up even earlier to saute some onions and other things to dump in a crockpot before leaving for work and I have to manage to be home 6-8 hours later to s...

Not entirely sold yet...exciting idea, but a lot of the recipes call for sauteeing stuff first as part of the prep, and that seems like a whole lot of work and dishes to dirty in the AM...wondering if it's entirely worth it and I'll probably be experimenting. Most of the recipes are vegan, which...

I *love* this book! I'm not a strict vegetarian, but I do like the emphasis on using vegetables more. Hint: if you, like me, don't like the thought of using "fake meat," it does just as well with the real stuff. Making stuffing, cheesecakes and even condiments (my favorite recipe from this book i...

Fall is the perfect season for this wonderful cookbook when I really want a warm and hearty meal. A table of contents at the beginning of the book directs readers to individual sections divided by food type where the reader finds additional contents pages to direct them to individual recipes. I h...

Slow beans bourguignon: I was disappointed to discover that I forgot to add the sauteed mushrooms to this dish at the end, but nonetheless, it was a hit -- by far the best of the three recipes I've tried from this cookbook so far! No leftovers from this dish. I will definitely make it again. No hu...
