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!"

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.

Damaris Phillips is a southern chef in love with an ethical vegetarian. In Phillips's household, greens were made with pork, and it wasn’t Sunday without fried chicken. So she had to transform the way she cooks. In Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy, Phillips shares 100 recipes that embody the modern Southern kitchen: food that retains all its historic comfort and flavor, but can now be enjoyed by vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. The book features Phillips’s most cherished entrees from her childhood made both with and without meat: Chicken Fried Steak becomes Chicken Fried Seitan Steak. Loaded Potato and Bacon Soup is now Loaded Potato and Facon Soup. She gives down-home side dishes a makeover by removing meat, adding interna­tional spices, and updating cooking techniques, and offers soul-satisfying, irresistible desserts that triumph over the meat-eater-versus-vegetarian divide, every time. Phillips found a way to make Southern food that everyone can enjoy, wherever they are on their culinary journey.
