When Kathy Hester asked me to review her new cookbook "Vegan Slow Cooking For Two or Just For You," I jumped at the chance. I knew it would be good because I previously reviewed her book "The Vegan Slow Cooker" and LOVED it! This book did NOT disappoint!
I have to admit, when I first received the book, I wondered "Will I be able to make anything in this book being gluten-free?" As I flipped through the book, more worries were put to rest almost immediately! All of the recipes were clearly marked "gluten-free," "soy-free," "oil-free," "gluten-free option," soy-free option" or "oil-free option." How wonderful is that?
Kathy begins the books with Tips and Tricks for working with small slow cookers and a section on "new to you" ingredients in case you're new to Vegan cooking. She has "Budget Rescuer" recipes, Breakfast Recipes, International Recipes, "Vegan Squares" (in which an entire meal is layered into your slow cooker," Sweet Treats, and so much more!
I immediately made the Chocolate Pumpkin Brownie Breakfast Quinoa. It was a wonderful yummy breakfast treat for me! I've never experimented with quinoa in that way before and I was excited to try such a creative recipe!
I'm looking forward to trying the White Bean Quinoa Gumbo, Creamy Tomato Basil Bisque, Potato Cauliflower Curry and the Carrot Cake Rice Pudding! Don't those all sound incredible? There are SO many more recipes I'm eager to try, but my list is too long to list them all here!
