In Sweet Potato Soul, Jenne Claiborne revives the long tradition of using fresh, local ingredients creatively in dishes like Coconut Collard Salad and Fried Cauliflower Chicken. She improvises new flavors in Peach Date BBQ Jackfruit Sliders and Sweet Potato-Tahini Cookies. She celebrates the plant-based roots of the cuisine in Bootylicious Gumbo and savory-sweet Georgia Watermelon and Peach Salad. And she updates classics with Jalapeno Hush Puppies, and her favorite, Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls. Over 100 vegan recipes are inside! Along the way, Jenne explores the narratives surrounding iconic and beloved soul food recipes, as well as their innate nutritional benefits; you've heard that dandelion, mustard, and turnip greens, okra, and black eyed peas are nutrition superstars, but here's how to make them super tasty, too. From decadent pound cakes and ginger-kissed fruit cobblers to smokey collard greens, amazing crabcakes and the most comforting sweet potato pie you'll ever taste, these better-than-the-original takes on crave-worthy dishes are good for your health, heart, and soul.
