All Sides with Ann Fisher

Gourmet Vegetarian Meals in the Slow Cooker

One machine can do a lot of work. From entrees to delicious desserts, the slow cooker is an easy way to go gourmet. It’s time to make your slow cooker sophisticated! Lynn Alley, a freelance food and wine journalist, is the author of "The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker: Simple and Sophisticated Meals from Around the World." Alley joined All Sides with Ann Fisher to talk about the technique and art in using a slow cooker. Alley said in the past the slow cooker has been looked down on, but more recently, has become more widely accepted. "I personally do not like digital slow cookers. That's just one more thing to break down," Alley said. "I like the good old-fashioned dial ones." The book includes recipes for breakfast, soups, main dishes, sides and deserts. All recipes are paired with a drink, all are vegetarian, and some are vegan.
