I have to say... I am loving all these recipes and ideas in the book, however, I feel left out being a southern girl. Most of the sundry of ingredients I'm reading about are foreign and completely unavailable where I live. How about the kind diet southern style!? Lol. A girl can hope... also... what about cane syrup? Cane grindings are still a huge tradition where I'm from, so I always have a homemade bottle on hand. Thanks and much love to my vegan cohorts!
Have you looked at any vegan Southern cookbooks? I have two; Hotdamn And Hell Yeah, and Vegan Soul Kitchen, both so good! Also, I find that taking a regular recipe and just making it vegan works - I am eating leftover chili with cornbread baked on top and all I did to the cornbread was sub the egg for a replacer and the milk for soy. :)
Good luck! Let me know if you find any great recipes!
Well, I'm from Florida and am having great success...Have you tried kale or collard greens with sweet potatoes or beans? And okra in soups with beans and corn and veggies is lovely. You can get sugar-free vegetarian bakes beans and make corn on the cob and green beans!
Thanks for the suggestions. I will have to check out those books! I have tried Vegan Soul Kitchen, which is amazing if you have the time. Turning non veg recipes into veg-friendly ones is definitely good advice. I'm also acquainted with the normal veg here in Georgia, but it can be frustrating when I have to make a road trip or order vegenaise online. I go to Florida pretty regularly, and try to stock up on things I can't get here, like anything organic. It's definitely not impossible to be vegan in the south, just takes a little more effort. Thanks and love!
