Quick and Easy Vegan Slow Cooking

Quick and Easy Vegan Slow Cooking

With 4 kids and the entailing soccer practices, guitar, piano, playdates, and so on, not to mention our own busy lives, it's imperative that our meals generally be easy to make, the healthier the better. I was excited to take a look at this vegan cookbook, Quick and Easy Vegan Slow Cooking (New York, NY: The Experiment, 2012), by Carla Kelly, because it seemed to perfectly fit the bill.

Easy to find ingredients, simple preparation, and the slow cooker means it's ready when you need it and not hurriedly thrown together. This cookbook will definitely get serious rotation for meal planning. This weekend we tried the Sweet Potato with Lime Soup and everybody loved it. To the basic soup I would add a grain for more texture, as well as a protein source to make it a more complete meal. Otherwise, simple and tasty always work for me!
