Review and photos contributed by Dianne Wenz of VeggieGirl. I’m a big fan of my slow cooker and an even bigger fan of Robin Robertson, so earlier in the year when I heard that she was working on a new vegan slow cooker cookbook, I began to eagerly await the date of it’s release.

I tell my health coaching clients to get at least four colors onto their plates at every meal, with green being the main color. Without getting too science-y about it, the nutrients in fruit and vegetables lie in their color, and therefore eating lots of colors ensures that we’re getting lots of nutrients.

Compared with traditional bread, this corn bread is closer to cake. However, it’s not the type of cake you bake for special occasions, but a quick bread type of cake that you bake for teatime, afternoon snack, or breakfast. Unlike traditional corn bread, which tends to be a bit crumbly, I use syrup and apple juice to give it a fruity fragrance and extra moisture. This results in a perfect teatime cake with a brownie-like texture, which I happily enjoy with a glass of golden apple juice. Contributed by Annie Taylor Chen, Vegan Ann.Print This Post
