Description

The mere mention of soul food brings thoughts of greasy fare and clogged arteries. Bryant Terry offers recipes that leave out heavy salt and refined sugar, bad" fats, and unhealthy cooking techniques, and leave in the down-home flavor. Vegan Soul Kitchen recipes use fresh, whole, high-quality, healthy ingredients and cooking methods with a focus on local, seasonal, sustainably raised food. Terry's new recipes have been conceived through the prism of the African Diaspora,cutting, pasting, reworking, and remixing African, Caribbean, African-American, Native American, and European staples, cooking techniques, and distinctive dishes to create something familiar, comforting, and deliciously unique. Reinterpreting popular dishes from African and Caribbean countries as well as his favourite childhood dishes, Terry reinvents African-American and Southern cuisine,capitalizing on the complex flavors of the tradition, without the animal products. Includes recipes for: Double Mustard Greens & Roasted Yam Soup Cajun-Creole-Spiced Tempeh Pieces with Creamy Grits Caramelized Grapefruit, Avocado, and Watercress Salad with Grapefruit Vinaigrette and Sweet Cornmeal-Coconut Butter Drop Biscuits.show more

Here are recipes you will enjoy using time and again."Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Cooking, publisher of 101Cookbooks.com "From gumbo to grits, goobers to greens, Vegan Soul Kitchen dispels the notion that great tasting soul food has to be bad for you.
