Quinoa and Squash Soup from “The Great American Slow Cooker Book.”

There are plenty of slow cooker cookbooks out there, but the writing team of Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough hit upon a winning formula with their new book, “The Great American Slow Cooker Book” (Clarkson Potter, $25).

For every recipe in the book, they offer a list of ingredients in three sizes of slow cooker (2 to 3 ½ quarts, 4 to 5 ½ quarts or 6 to 8 quarts). It’s the answer to the complaint of everyone who ever wanted to try a slow cooker recipe, only to discover their cooker was too big or too small.

There’s a wide variety of recipes, too — more than 500 — including breakfast dishes, main dishes, soups (such as a Quinoa and Squash Soup) and stews (such as the Vegetarian Stew With Cheesy Drop Dumplings).
