Vegetarian Soul Food Cookbook, Now 70% Off
Weekly Book Special: October 5th-October 11th
In recognition of World Vegetarian Day, we’ve been poring over our collection of cookbooks looking for the best in animal-friendly, heart healthy recipes. Our undisputed favorite was this collection of 150 sumptuous vegan meals from acclaimed food justice activist and “eco-chef” Bryant Terry.
Vegan Soul Kitchen:
Fresh, Healthy and Creative African-American Cuisine
by Bryant Terry, Paperback, 165 pages
List Price: $18.95, Lowest Amazon.com Price: $7.32, OUR PRICE: $5.95
Bryant Terry takes local, organic, vegan cuisine, gives it a Southern twist and a much needed dollop of soul. It wasn’t enough to provide us with soon-to-be-family-favorites like upper Caribbean creamy grits with roasted plantain pieces, Terry gives us a soundtrack as well. Each of these mouthwatering recipes comes with a recommendation for musical inspiration ranging from old-school soul to gospel to hip-hop.
Terry’s background in food justice activism leads him to eschew elitism; his recipes depend on commonly available ingredients without sacrificing quality. Don’t let the “vegan” label scare you; this is a book for all of us who know that “healthy” and “hearty” are not mutually exclusive.
The two vegans in our office humbly defy you to resist Terry’s open-faced BBQ tempeh sandwich with carrot-cayenne coleslaw (click to enlarge):
Diet for a New America author John Robbins extols the virtues of Terry’s kitchen-craft, asking us: “do you think a commitment to healthy eating means enduring bland and boring food? Vegan Soul Kitchen will not only show you otherwise, but will make it easy for you to create fabulously delicious and exotic dishes. Here’s proof that natural foods can be fascinating and sensuous.”
This book is discounted only through October 11th. Purchase it for $5.95 (list price $18.95):
