I love Robins other cook book, Fresh From The Vegetarian Slow Cooker, but her new book "Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker" is a little too recycled for it to be worth owning both. Yes, there are some new recipes in this, but there are also a bunch of reprinted ones.

Also, a layout gripe--which is totally beyond the authors control, (it is instead a complaint to be lobbied at the publisher---is that each recipe is not given its own page as it is in her other book. It is designed such that wherever...more
I enjoy Robin's recipes. Some are my all time favorites. However, this book hasn't excited me. I check it out regularly from the library and rarely cook from it. I just don't get inspired. There are ingredients I don't use like wheat gluten. There are some great snack and breakfast recipes, which we often don't think to use a slow cooker for, so I do love that.
Crockpots are always a good idea if you have time during the day to throw one on. My girlfriend often puts one on when she has night classes, leaving my evening free when I get home, and causing the entire house to smell delicious. The recipies in this book are astounding, some of the tastiest dishes I've seen in a vegetarian cookbook.
Fresh From the Vegan Slow Cooker makes you more than happy to pull out your crock pot and get dinner ready before you leave for work. Who knew crock pots were capable of so many delicious vegan recipes? A great addition to my cookbook collection.
I haven't sampled a significant portion of the book yet but I have done a sampling of recipes. I think it is a great starting point: I have notes to modify the recipes I have tried (mostly stuff like "change ratio" and "I wonder if these too recipes would work together, because I want something in between") so I think it needs a few tweaks - that may be about personal preferences but I usually find it takes me a long time to figure out X should change, etc. I dislike cookbooks without pictures,...more
I like this a lot, but there are fewer recipes in here that I am super excited about than in Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. Obviously she can't just keep publishing the same great recipes over and over, and there just happen to not be as many Allie-friendly recipes. It's still great though.

Every recipe is labeled if it's gluten-free (or gluten-free option) or soy free, which saves me so much time. I also really like how she formats the essential details of the recipe: how much time, what...more

I haven't yet gotten around to reviewing this cookbook - but you can see some of the dishes I've made from Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker here:
Absolutely love this cookbook. Very gluten-free friendly, super healthy recipes. Yet another reason I use my slow cooker at least once per week. Huge thanks to my friend Elizabeth for the recommendation!
Great book for the vegan and non-vegan alike! I love how all the recipes are laid-out, too. There are many gluten free and soy free recipes, as well. Easy and delicious. This one is a keeper!
A great variety of recipes beyond the standard beans, beans, and more beans. I love that many recipes are gluten-free or can be adapted easily.
Kate Merriman
Can't wait to try so many of these! They even have a posole recipe (which, of course, I will tweak!)
I will definitely need to buy this book for my own collection. The recipes were easy and tasty.
Best vegan lasagna I have ever had came from this cookbook - even my omnivore friends loved it.
I feel that I can finally review this book after trying a nice handful of recipes - we loved it!
N.L. Riviezzo
Not a very exciting book. The recipes did not strike my interest. Just kind of meh.
Delightful and delicious, reliably excellent recipes.
Everything I make from this cookbook is delicious!
