"A groundbreaking cookbook from beloved chef-activist Bryant Terry, drawing from African, Afro-Caribbean, and Southern food to create over 100 enticing vegan dishes. Rising star chef and food activist Bryant Terry is known for his simple, creative, and delicious vegan dishes inspired by African American cooking. In this landmark cookbook, he remixes foods of the African diaspora to create exciting and approachable recipes such as Corn Maque Choux-Stuffed Jamaican Patties with Hot Pepper Sauce, Berebere-Spiced Black-Eyed Pea Sliders, Crispy Teff-Grit Cakes with Eggplant, Tomatoes, and Peanuts, and Groundnut Stew with Winter Vegetables and Cornmeal Dumplings. He also explores key African ingredients that are popular in Caribbean and Southern dishes--like okra--tracing their history and giving them cultural context. Afro-Vegan will delight Bryant Terry fans; vegans looking for exciting new recipes; cooks interested in African, Afro-Caribbean, and Southern cuisine; and health- and eco-conscious eaters"-- Provided by publisher.

Soleil: I love Bryant Terry’s mission to place the plant-based diet within the context of African diasporic cooking, and I especially love his suggested musical tracks to bob your head to while you’re working though his recipes.

This is a wonderful, and beautifully laided out book, with gorgeous photos, and references to black artists (written and performance). Some of the recipes are a bit more involved, and would require more time and experience to pull off, but otherwise a great book to add to the Vegan collection.

If you want delicious, healthy food that just happens to also be vegan, then this book is for you.

This is a great cook book. Its full of flavorful food that is also very nutritious. If you grew up eating "soul food" or "southern food" you will clearly be able to see how they were influenced by the captured free Africans that were brought to Americas shores, who were using what they had on hand to create food that reminded them of what they had back home
