Eighteen robust chilis and stewsand#8212;two more categories that do well in the slow-cookerand#8212;include a warming Chipotle Black Bean Chili with Winter Squash and a surprising but yummy Seitan Stroganoff.and#160; Beyond the mains, there are chapters devoted to snacks and appetizers, desserts, breads and breakfasts, and even one on drinks.and#160; The many soy-free and gluten-free recipes are clearly identified.and#160; Altogether, the collection offers readers loads of ways to expand their vegan repertoire and to get maximum value from their investment in a slow-cooker.
