Almost every slow cooker recipe I've ever made has been tomato-based. Recipe books are full of slow-cook meat recipes and stews, but I was bored already, after just a few months of owning my slow cooker.

So I had high hopes for this recipe book and I have to say it has exceeded my expectations.

Firstly, the recipes actually are vegetarian (many of them are vegan). I say this because other slow cooker recipe books have "vegetarian" sections which are packed with meat stock, chicken soup, fish sauce and bacon in the ingredients!

Secondly, the recipes are easy and they work. Again, despite being pretty experienced in the kitchen, I've had the experience of embarrassing failures with other slow cooker recipe books.

Thirdly, just reading the recipes made me want to get cooking! They are inspiring, delicious and simple to follow. There are hints for how to prepare the night before, to save time, and also variations on the recipes, to keep them interesting.

I highly recommend this book for vegetarian slow cooker users and also non-veggies who are bored of meat casseroles and fancy a change.

So far my favourite recipes from this book are:

Peanut & Potato Loaf
Raspberry Custard Cake
Lentil Shepherd's Pie
Wild Rice With Mushrooms & Apricots
French Onion Soup
Caramelised Onions
Hot Roasted Nuts

I hope you enjoy this recipe book!

This book is great it has a helpful guide at the start on how to use your cooker including some tips. Which are really needed as my cooker didn't come with very good instructions and tips.

The recipes are clear and have tips down the side which I have found very useful. I really like the make ahead tips as you can flick through and find recipes which you can prepare the night before, leave in the fridge and then put in the cooker the next morning.

Yes the book does not contain many pictures, but the descriptions/tips are so good you know what you are doing by following the instructions.

I love this cookbook, it is fantastic. I've made loads of recipies from it which were all easy to follow and yummy. I use this cook book almost every day now. I have alot of other cook books and usually try two or three of the recipes but this one I've made about 12 things from and I'm still working my way through it. The ingredients are all easy to find and it is a great book if you are trying to eat seasonally. I make my family's dinner in the morning but I don't need to wait around for it to cook, I just switch the slow cooker on and then go about my day. Fantastic book!

I bought this book along with a slow cooker in a hope that they would enable me to do more home cooking. I found these recipes to be too full of things like tins of condensed soup and other ingredients which meant that the food cooked from it tasted less like home cooking than anything alse I have ever made. I also have to say that I liked the sound of very few recipes in the book, and not one of those turned out to be enjoyable. Much of this is very samey and nothing I made tasted fresh.

The reviews here led to my decision to buy this book rather than other vegetarian slow cooker recipe books available on Amazon. Not one of them mentioned the following negatives. Had I known them I would not have bought it.

The Product Description included that welcome idea for busy people of being able to throw ingredients into a cooker to later come home to a hot meal at the end of the day. THERE IS NOT ONE DINNER IN THIS BOOK FOR WHICH THAT IS TRUE. Most casserole and stew recipes require cooking (frying, etc.) the ingredients first, according to the author. (She appears to have anticipated the reaction she would get from some readers to this because she extols the virtues of doing so, at the start of the book.) Indeed, in some cases so much work is required and the meal is virtually ready prior to putting anything into the Slow Cooker that I feel this is a book for any cooker adapted to include the magic words 'Slow Cooker'.

I had always thought that a Slow Cooker has been designed to cook the ingredients SLOWLY from scratch to retain flavours, colours and nutrients (with the big plus of using very little energy). While I appreciate that some ingredients require preparation (soaking, rinsing, chopping, crushing, ...) if I wanted to fry, boil (or whatever) the evening meal I would do so and wouldn't be referring to a Slow Cooker recipe book.

The Product Description also mentions 'common pantry ingredients'.

I have had a slow cooker for years and felt guilty about not using it. Most slow cooker books tend to be meat orientated, so I was please to find a vegetarian book. I have picked up a few tips, to be fair, but I have not got as much use out of this book as I had hoped. I wasn't bothered by the Americanisms, since I have quite a few trans-atlantic books and I have learnt to cope, and I didn't find, as one reviewer claimed, that there were many exotic or hard to source ingredients. For me the two problems were:

1. Most of the recipes are for a huge amount of servings. If there are only one or two of you, then simple division dosn't work, since you end up with something about 1/2 inch deep in the bottom of the pot. I think this is in the nature of the slow cooker itself, rather than the fault of the book, however.
2. A high proportion of the recipes seem to be variations on the theme of chili. I HATE CHILI WITH A PASSION.

I can see why other reviewers have praised the book, but unless you regularly cook for at least half a dozen, then I really wouldn't recommend it.
