Cook delicious summer meals outdoors using only the energy of sunshine.

Why heat up your kitchen (and our planet) by turning on the stove when it's hot outside? You don't have to, you know. Most Americans, including those who live in Seattle, Minneapolis, Boston, and New York City, can cook outdoors with sunshine all summer long. Using a simple box or panel solar cooker to make summer meals is like having an unplugged slow cooker in your yard-a slow cooker reinvented to run on sun power. Solar cooking is easy, safe, and free. It creates no emissions and keeps your kitchen cool.

Slow Cook Solar tells you everything you need to know to get started. It features 100+ climate-friendly, plant-rich recipes for sun-baked summer meals that are simple, flavorful, and sustainable. Whether you eat vegan, vegetarian, paleo, keto, flexitarian, or regenivore, you'll find something sure to please your taste buds here.
