Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker: Simple and Sophisticated Meals from around the Worldby Lynn Alley
Synopses & Reviews
The Gourmet Slow Cooker and The Gourmet Slow Cooker: Volume II showed home cooks everywhere that a slow cooker is perfectly capable of turning out meals that are sophisticated enough to serve to guests. It’s simply a matter of using imaginative recipes that bring together fresh, flavor-packed ingredients—and then setting the timer.
In The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker, author Lynn Alley offers up more than fifty dishes, each one vegetarian, some of them vegan, and all of them delicious. The recipes are drawn from the world’s great cuisines and include breakfasts, soups, main courses, sides, and desserts. Dishes, such as Spiced Basmati Rice Breakfast Cereal, Smoky Potage Saint-Germain, Polenta Lasagna with Tomato-Mushroom Sauce, Soy-Braised Potatoes, and Mexican Chocolate Pudding Cake, are each paired with a beverage that is meant to complement the meal.
Whether you are a vegetarian hard-pressed to find enticing recipes for your slow cooker, an omnivore looking to expand your repertoire, or a follower of a vegetable-focused diet, The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker will help you put many delightful meat-free dinners on the table with convenience and ease.
"Overabundant quotation marks and occasional preaching aside, the recipes in this concise collection are simple and tempting. Organized by broad cuisine categories (Indian, Mexican and Southwestern, Greek, and so on), the dishes in this book don't school readers in the finer points of different cultures' cooking styles, but they do offer easy, tasty options for meat-free comfort food: slow-cooked grits with chili and cheese; polenta gnocchi in tomato sauce; wild mushroom stew on noodles. Appealing photos showcase prepared recipes that feel a step above traditional slow cooker fare, such as rustic potato and poblano gratin; risotto with lentils; polenta lasagna with tomato mushroom sauce; and Japanese-style braised tofu. The handful of surprisingly chic desserts sprinkled throughout — including red wine and cherry risotto; Mexican chocolate pudding cake; walnut and apple bread pudding — are a sweet bonus."

In "The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker," Alley offers up more than 50 dishes, each one vegetarian, some of them vegan, and all of them delicious, drawn from the world's great cuisines and including breakfasts, soups, main courses, sides, and desserts.
