With the holidays behind us and (for most of the country) cold winter months ahead, it’s time to pull out the slow cooker to make warm, comforting foods.
Thankfully, there’s Everyday Gluten-Free Slow Cooking, by Kimberly Mayone and Kitty Broihier, MS,RD, as this collection of slow-cooked recipes will make it easier to get through the long winter.
Here’s what I love about this cookbook:
- with the Breakfast and Brunch recipes, spend a few minutes at night putting the ingredients into a slow-cooker and voila…wake-up to a warm meal that is ready to go. No more excuses for not getting the most important meal of the day in. This chapter includes hot cereals, granolas, frittatas and other egg dishes, and delicious spreads for gluten free breads
- the Appetizers and Snacks recipes can be enjoyed by all, so there is no need to make separate gluten free dishes when entertaining a crowd. These recipes will carry you through Sunday afternoons of football and warm nights in front of the fire
- it wouldn’t be winter without Soups, Stews and Chili, and here there are 17 recipes to choose from
- many don’t equate vegetarian fare with comfort food, but in the Vegetarian chapter that’s exactly what you’ll find, from black bean and lentil soups to chili, baked beans, risotto and polenta dishes
- whole chapters are dedicated to Seafood, Poultry, Pork and Beef dishes that incorporate the flavors and traditions of a variety of ethnic cuisines
- the Sweets chapter includes a unique selection of recipes, and several are made from healthful ingredients. Some of the recipes that stand out to me include: vanilla poached pears, cinnamon-walnut stuffed apples, coconut rice pudding, and almond and amaranth pudding
- the Quick and Easy Sides for Slow Cooking chapter is a great way to get your veggies in without long preparation time
