Anyone not adequately acquainted with the South’s true culinary terrain might struggle with the idea of a Southern vegetarian. Because isn’t the South one big feast of meaty indulgence? Don’t vegetables play a supporting role to fried chicken and bacon on a Southern table? Justin Fox Burks and Amy Lawrence turn that notion on its head by recasting garden bounty as the headlining act on a plate. In a region distinguished by ideal growing conditions and generations of skilled farmers, Southern-style vegetarian cooking is not only possible, it’s a pursuit brimming with vine-ripened possibility. Grab a chair in Burks and Lawrence’s kitchen and discover modern recipes that evoke the flavors of traditional Southern cooking, with techniques and ingredients loved so dearly throughout the region: Lemon Zest and Thyme Pimento Cheese Grilled Watermelon and Tomato Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette Okra Fritters with Creole Mustard Sauce Vegetarian Red Beans and Rice with Andouille Eggplant Roast Beet Salad with Sea Salt Granola and Honey Tarragon Dressing Grilled Peach Ice Cream Whether you’re a devoted plant-eater or a steadfast omnivore, The Southern Vegetarian Cookbook will help you shift vegetables from the outskirts of your plate into main course position. Eating your vegetables has never been more delicious. "True Southern food will always adapt to its surroundings. It is not the stubborn lout that many think it is, rather it’s a nimble cheerleader of its region. It revels in vegetables and cherishes seasons. Burks and Lawrence are adding healthy substance to the definition of our Southern food. The Southern Vegetarian is a great addition to any culinary library." —Hugh Acheson, author of A New Turn in the South "Come eat with The Chubby Vegetarian. Justin and Amy are the only people I have ever met who can take the hock out of greens and not remove the soul from the pot." —Kelly English, Food & Wine Best New Chef 2009, Chef/Owner of Restaurant Iris “What you have in your hands is a gift. It is a fresh, fun, slightly irreverent and joyful new look at Southern vegetarian dishes...a look that needed to be taken.” —John Currence, James Beard Foundation award for Best Chef South, Chef/Owner, City Grocery Restaurant Group

It s not about replicating meat; it s about moving vegetables from side dish to the center of the plate. Most of all, it's about making delicious food that just happens to be vegetarian. After our focus on Southern vegetarian favorites in our first cookbook, now we've branched out to highlight hearty and satisfying vegetarian dishes inspired by cuisines from all over the world in The Chubby Vegetarian. In the space of a few years, we lost a combined one hundred pounds by focusing our diet on vegetables, grains, and fruit with the occasional over-the-top-dinner (and usually a dessert, too!). We worked more variety into our diets and loved the results, and we want to share our favorite go-to recipes with you. Come along with us as we show you step-by-step how to make creative vegetarian dishes that everyone can enjoy!"

Crunk is a Southern slang term that means “to get excited.” Keepin' it real and makin' it fun, vegan blogger Bianca Phillips adopted the Southern slang term to convey passion and pride for her heritage and the down-home food she was raised on. By incorporating country staples (beans, corn, and fresh produce) that have been the basis of Southern cooking for generations, Bianca offers no-frills, no-nonsense soul food dishes with a wholesome twist. These family classics, minus the meat, eggs, and dairy products, help keep traditional Southern foodways alive while allowing vegans, vegetarians, and anyone who cares about healthful eating to enjoy this satisfying down-home fare. From cheese-free Ro*Tel dip and country-fried tempeh steak to eggplant jambalaya and smoky stewed okra and tomatoes, Cookin’ Crunk offers plenty in the way of classic Southern comfort food. There's also a bounty of sweet treats that includes cobblers, bread pudding, dark chocolate bourbon pecan pie, and peanut butter and banana "Elvis" cupcakes.

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 favorite 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.

It’s what we’re known for. But there’s another side to our family and our relationship to food, and it’s just as personal, maybe even more personal, than what we do at the bakery. I’m talking about the recipes and dishes, meals and traditions that nourish our bodies and souls when we get home. Just like any other family, we enjoy chilling out and spending time together, and there’s no way we’d rather do that than around a table, a place that keeps us grounded and connected to each other as well as to the relatives who came before us. As proud as I am of our professional success, I’m just as proud that we’ve been able to continue making time for our family and extended family—and we’re talking a lot of people— to meet several times a week and eat together. And now I’m honored to share with you my family’s favorite recipes and to tell you the stories of what makes them so near and dear to our hearts. I hope they might become favorites for your family as well, that they help you create memories to last a lifetime, the same way they’ve done for us Valastros. -- Buon Appetito, Buddy Valastro
