We’ve tried a lot of cookbooks this week and tested a heap of recipes, but my personal favorite is Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker: 200 Recipes for Healthy and Hearty One-Pot Meals That Are Ready When You Are by Robin Robertson.
My family wholeheartedly agrees.
I can’t even recount all the recipes we tested from this book (another in the slow cooker as we speak), but I can assure you they were all excellent meals. I work full time from home, so a slow cooker is a nice solution for us many days. Before I stared work in the morning, I was able to throw the ingredients in the cooker, turn it on, and enjoy the smells of “someone else” preparing the evening meal.
What is most impressive in Robin Roberson’s recipes is how filling and substantial they’ve all been. Recipes such as Slow Beans and Bourguignon (pg. 100), Slow and Easy Mushroom and Green Bean Stroganoff (pg. 83), and Vindaloo Vegetables will no doubt earn their places as staples in our home.
If you have reluctant vegetarians in your house, or people who complain of not feeling full after a meal with no meat, this cookbook is a must for you. Go ahead – test the Burguignon. They might not even notice they just ate all their vegetables.
