Almost everyone nowadays is on a perennial diet or trying to stay with healthy eating these days, and it is well known and proven that a diet rich with Mediterranean foods is not only healthy, but diet friendly and delicious. While Mediterranean Diet Slow Cooker Cookbook: 100 Healthy Recipes , by Shannon Epstein, isn’t specifically designed to be for losing weight, it is a timely reminder that Mediterranean food can also be low fat, diet friendly, and delicious.

With the popularity of the Instant Pot, many have abandoned their slow cookers, thinking that they are obsolete. However, even though Instant Pots have slow cooker functions that work reasonably well, regular slow cookers are easier to control, have been proven time and time again over the years, and are still the best appliance for certain dishes, and especially for cooking over a long period of time unattended. Epstein has included dishes that work well in the slow cooker in this excellent cookbook, and the recipes are easy and good. Chicken Artichoke Rice Bake is excellent, as well as Beef Meatballs in Garlic Cream Sauce, Osso Buco, Mediterranean Roasted Turkey Breast, and Shrimp Risotto. There are also several good desserts.

The only drawback to this cookbook is the fact that there are very few photographs of the delicious dishes contained in the book. With modern technology, this is inexcusable. The cookbook is still recommended, however, because the abundance of good recipes outweigh the lack of photos, and it would be a shame to skip this cookbook because of it.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
