Tantalizing and foolproof recipes for everything from starters and snacks to sides and desserts.

With both vegetarianism and slow cookers being mainstream, the timing is perfect for a new slow cooker book which includes both. As usual, Judith Finlayson has developed mouth-watering recipes with broad appeal that address a wide variety of needs -- from great family fare to more sophisticated dishes for entertaining.

Full color throughout, it features not only traditional recipes and updated classics but also more exotic dishes that reflect our increasingly multicultural society. Vegetarians, vegans and even flexitarians will also be inspired. There are more than 130 vegan friendly recipes that have been identified for easy access and over 200 recipes in total.

Some of the tantalizing recipes are:
Onion-soused beans
Braised tomato bruschetta
Wild mushroom soup with miso
Smoky tomato soup with cheesy crostini
Broccoli and cheddar cheese cake
Caramelized onion quiche
Leek and potato cobbler with stilton
Wheat berry ragout
Vegetable biriyani
Butter bean and barley risotto.

From family favorites to exotic dishes, these recipes will inspire both full-time and occasional vegetarians to pull out their slow cookers. Any home cook can prepare delicious vegetarian fare with minimum attention and maximum certainty of success with Finlayson's recipes.
