Discover the amazing versatility of the slow cooker! If you're a vegetarian who thought slow cookers were just for meat-eaters, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker will introduce you to the wonders of slow cooking. And if you're already a slow cooker enthusiast, here's a whole new array of healthy, delicious recipes for a favorite appliance. Slow cookers can be used for a lot more than just tough, inexpensive cuts of meat. They're perfect for vegetarian and healthy cooking because slow cooking is a foolproof way to make beans, grains, numerous vegetables, and much, much more. ''Until now most slow cooker cookbooks have been heavily meat oriented, leaning mightily on processed, preservative-heavy ingredients. Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker changes that. What a good idea! Here, every ingredient is fresh and real, and there's not a single pot roast with dehydrated onion soup to be found! Hooray for this cookbook's ease, innovation, delicious-sounding variety, bright ingredients, and fine results. Not just vegetarians, but anyone who needs cooking ease but doesn't want to sacrifice full flavor or health, will rejoice in this inviting book.'' - Crescent Dragonwagon, James Beard Award-winning author of Passionate Vegetarian
Finally a book that combines the fresh, exuberant flavors of great Italian food with the ease and comfort of a slow cooker. Michele Scicolone, a best-selling author and an authority on Italian cooking, shows how good ingredients and simple techniques can lift the usual “crockpot” fare into the dimension of fine food. Pasta with Meat and Mushroom Ragu, Osso Buco with Red Wine, Chicken with Peppers and Mushrooms: These are dishes that even the most discriminating cook can proudly serve to company, yet all are so carefree that anyone with just five or ten minutes of prep time can make them on a weekday and return to perfection. Simmered in the slow cooker, soups, stews, beans, grains, pasta sauces, and fish are as healthy as they are delicious. Polenta and risotto, “stir-crazy” dishes that ordinarily need careful timing, are effortless. Meat loaves come out perfectly moist, tough cuts of meat turn succulent, and cheesecakes emerge flawless.

This unique guide to preparing Indian food using classic slow-cooker techniques features more than 50 recipes, beautifully illustrated with full-color photography throughout. These great recipes take advantage of the slow cooker's ability to keep food moist through its long cooking cycle, letting readers create dishes with far less oil and saturated fat than in traditional recipes. Anupy Singla shows the busy, harried family that cooking healthy is simple and that cooking Indian is just a matter of understanding a few key spices. Her "Indian Spices 101" chapter introduces readers to the mainstay spices of an Indian kitchen, as well as how to store, prepare, and combine them in different ways. Among her 50 recipes are all the classics — specialties like dal, palak paneer, and gobi aloo — and also dishes like butter chicken, keema, and much more. The result is a terrific introduction to making healthful, flavorful Indian food using the simplicity and convenience of the slow cooker.
Even great cooks, such as Cheryl Jamison, one of the preeminent authorities on American regional cuisine and the author of many award-winning cookbooks, occasionally prefer the make-ahead convenience, easy cleanup, and depth of slow-cooked flavor that you get when you use a slow cooker. Co-author of the pioneering book Texas Home Cooking, Cheryl reveals in these pages that a stunning range of Lone Star gems, from chilis and stews to enchiladas and roasts, from bean or rice dishes to beef, bison, poultry, and shrimp, come out of the slow cooker brimming with flavor--and with a minimum of fuss for the cook. These 125 recipes are full of delectable, down-home goodness, each one at least as good as its version from outside the slow cooker.
