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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Green Collar Economy
"Much more than a cookbook, Vegan Soul Kitchen reads like a rich gumbo of the African American experience, a history lesson with a mouthwatering twist. From reaching back to our heritage as stewards of the earth to offering modern recipes, music suggestions and original poetry, Bryant brings together a portrait of a people as well as a movement (food justice) that is poised to save our health, green our communities, and sustain the earth. Bryant knows the shortest way to people's hearts is through their stomachs."

Peter Berley, author of The Flexitarian Table
"Bryant Terry's warm hearted, soulful dishes shout out to you and me with crackling, lip smacking goodness. His fresh and sassy way at the stove puts meat on the bones of the very plants that are sure to sustain us for generations to come."

Innovative and taste-full recipes like Sweet Cornmeal Coconut Drop Biscuits, and Baked BBQ Black Eyed Peas, make it a book for anyone who wants to eat well."

If you're new to this cuisine, Bryant Terry's recipes will open your world; if you're looking for a twist, prepare to be amazed. All I can say is WOW! Thank you Bryant."

Here are recipes you will enjoy using time and again."
