I love my slow cooker. Love it. I also really love vegetarian foods. However…..vegetarian foods don’t always love me. I received this book; The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker, from my mother in law as a Christmas gift, but as I went through the pages I realized, as I had feared, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy most of the recipes because they contained FODMAPs ( my mother in law, Dee, also got me a non-vegetarian slow cooker cookbook, which I plan to use very soon, and often). I am able to modify a lot of my favorite recipes to contain less FODMAPs but most vegetarian recipes have FODMAP ingredients as their core ingredient, and for the main source of protein, therefore they are more difficult to modify.
I thought about returning the book, but then I thought NO WAY! I want one of my loyal readers to get this book! I mean, it’s a wonderful cookbook, with some fantastic recipes from all around the world.
