This is a fantastic cookbook with lots of interesting recipes for vegans, vegetarians, and even their carnivorous counterparts. I was looking for a good vegetarian crockpot cookbook because my other one is a bit bland. I was immediately sold on this one for a handful of reasons: Hester actually makes use of fake meat in her recipes, which adds some nice variety; the collection has a broad range of unique recipes (not just the regular stews and soups, but baked goods in a crock pot?! + lots of Indian-inspired dishes); all the recipes are broken down into what needs to be done the night before and what's done day of; and lastly, there is just an abundance of practical tips. Hester finally sold me on pre-slow cooking and freezing beans for later use, for instance. She also has a stupendous recipe for "chickeny" bouillon that I've stocked up on and used in all sorts of things (non slow cooker recipes included). When I get ambitious, I plan to follow her instructions for making my own fake chicken and beef.

Highly recommended!
