    1. I have enjoyed both Bryant Terry s Vegan Soul Kitchen and The Inspired Vegan, so it was no surprise that I liked Terry s latest, Afro Vegan Farm Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed One of my favorite aspects of Terry s cookbooks, in addition to the recipes, is the soundtrack that accompanies each dish As an omnivore who sometimes goes meatless, I am always on the hunt for delicious meatless dishes I experimented with these dishes and spice mixes from the cookbook Blackened Sea [...]


    2. although i am not vegan, nor do i plan to go vegan, i do appreciate vegan cooking this was on my list because i was curious how to include vegan options in my family cooking that still feels like home and familiar my family is from the south, and i m african american many of the inspirations for these recipes were familiar pros i love that the majority of recipes do not include the seitan or tempeh while there is some that does include it, it isn t overwhelming like many vegan or vegetarian coo [...]


    3. Yes Finally, vegan food that isn t bland or reliant on tofu I cook with a lot of spices and need my food to be spicy, zesty, and or tangy Terry totally gets this The recipes are all mouthwatering I mean, he even has a section for spice blends and hot sauces Be still, my beating heart.Plus, like I mentioned, it s so refreshing to see vegan recipes that aren t all about tofu There are so many vegetable alternatives you can go through before you need tofu Terry introduces grains, vegetables, legume [...]


    4. Vibrant, brimming with flavour, Afro Vegan is a fresh approach to some of the best flavours in the world African, Caribbean and Southern By blending each of these traditional cuisines together, famous chef Bryant Terry has created a scintillating eating style which is sure to please all palates Although I am not a Vegan, I eat as many vegetables as I can possibly fit into my diet, and I always appreciate awesome vegetable recipes The book begins with instructions on how to make many of the renow [...]


    5. Oops, I totally forgot to add and review this book ages ago Or at least, like three weeks ago As half of my family is from Southeast Texas with roots in Louisiana, much of this is the kind of food I grew up on, and feels like home Or at least like my mom s home It s also one of the very, very few cookbooks in which I actually read all the introductions and essays and things It s super interesting, and gives a really good overview of the history behind many of these dishes and where they come fro [...]


    6. One of the coolest cookbooks I ve read in recent times Awesome spice mixes, menu suggestions, song and book recommendations for recipes, and even a little touches of history Not for the beginner cook, but someone comfortable in the kitchen will find it a welcome addition I wish there were photographs, and, as always, I wish people wouldn t wax on about how great the farmer s market fresh fruit for dessert is Who has the time or the money to go to the farmer s market Seriously Not people with fa [...]




    7. Beautiful recipe book with tons of interesting recipes Despite the recipes being delicious, I do wish that the recipes had an estimated time for how long it would take to cook because most of these recipes are very elaborate It s definitely not an everyday cooking cook book Its like a cooking on a special holiday or day off book Also, the ingredients he suggests are often pretty hard to come by at a regular grocery store I would recommend this book as a treat, for when you feel like doing some [...]


    8. I would highly recommend this I am liking a number of the recipes I am not a vegan but do like to eat lots of fresh vegetable dishes and this offers some new ideas particularly for some classics I grew up with like black eyed peas and greens It s fairly easy to adapt many of the recipes to your own liking The seasoning blends appealed to me My basil is almost ready to harvest and make into Basil Salt.A nice plus is each recipe has a music suggestion and sometimes a book or movie suggestion as we [...]


    9. Bryant Terry s books demonstrate that a life of pleasure can be entirely consistent with living a life committed to social justice Terry s recipes are fantastic He makes delicious food But what I love even than his great culinary gift is his commitment to grounding and orienting his food in the rich traditions of the African Diaspora Terry is working for food justice within a community that is underserved in terms of access to healthy foods and medical care He presents his food as a means of co [...]


    10. Great descriptions of food and traditions, with soundtrack, and occasionally a film or a book, to accompany each recipe So, it s also a great read besides being a cookbook So far, I ve tried about 4 recipes, they turned out very good, they offer an interesting fusion of various traditions They can be quite labor intensive and time consuming, and likely need to go grocery shopping for specific ingredients, but if you decide to make a date out of the shopping, preparation, cooking, and eating, you [...]


    11. This is a beautiful cookbook, inside and out Great recipes and photos and each recipe has a song listed at the top, creating a book soundtrack, which I love There s a playlist for it on YouTube and it was awesome to hear while cooking Some of the recipes even list book recommendations about various topics Another thing I appreciated about the book were the recipes for homemade spice blends What could you ask for in one place Yummy vegan recipes, reading ideas, cool music, beautiful photos, cult [...]


    12. Terry s Afro Vegan provides so much than just recipes it is the full experience of food Starting with the base components of African and Caribbean fused seasonings and following through courses and beverages, Afro Vegan shows plating, provides a meal soundtrack, and touts local ingredients If I were half so passionate about cooking as Bryant Terry, I would surely make all of these meals.


    13. Some interesting recipes from the Afro Diaspora No nutrition information and old school measurements are used Some recipes look heavy on salt and oil, but nowhere near as crazy as Anglo southern cooking This is a fusion cookbook, so don t expect to create a country specific menu Lots of spice mixes and condiment recipes included along with mains, sides and drinks I will have to try a few recipes before I can rate it.I have tried a couple of recipes now, tasty


    14. First cookbook review I have a bad habit of acquiring cookbooks and not using them for months, but I bought this beauty at the perfect time made 4 recipes in a week This is a rare cookbook where I use the recommended spice quantities and it s sufficiently flavorful and the first vegan cookbook I ve used that resembles how I like to eat Be warned, this is not for the beginner cook and the recipes are time consuming With experience you can come up your own shortcuts.


    15. Another thoughtful winner from Bryant Terry He cooks about 3 clicks up from me, so I don t actually make a lot of his recipes, but I appreciate what he s going for Also, saving your corncobs and making broth from them is a good idea and it worked.


    16. A lot of the recipes looked delicious, but I was turned off by the amount of prep too much time for a busy person and the huge list of ingredients I m not made of money.


    17. I read an article online recently that mentioned this book First, I was intrigued by the title a mashup of African cooking and veganism Second, when I read multiple reader reviews on , my mouth kept watering from all the delicious sounding recipe titles that the reviewers were referencing So with a growling belly I requested this book through my library The cookbook is full of beautiful, closeup, full color photos of these beautiful and intriguing recipes Not only does Bryant Terry want to encou [...]


    18. Soul food is often stereotyped as being as unhealthy as it is delicious This cookbook boasts huge flavor alongside a variety of nutritious, no meat treats Bryant Terry pulls from cooking traditions from the diverse African diaspora North Africa, Ethiopia, Brazil and the 61DUkUn680L._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_Southern US all feature prominently throughout the book You can find sauces, salsas, and stews, sweet and savory snacks, and beautiful images accompanying each of the sections A whole chapter is [...]


    19. Nothing mind blowingly interesting, though I like the idea of using corn cobs to make a broth I like that each dish had information about its inspiration, which helped me learn a little bit about African and Caribbean cuisine But I found myself unwilling to make a lot of the recipes because a lot of them called for a not so healthy amount of oil, and all of the greens recipes called for first boiling the greens and then transferring them to another pan to cook, a method which seems to needlessly [...]


    20. Everything looks tasty, delicious, spicy I m not a vegan, but I cook 70% vegetarian because delicious veggies makes my heart go pitter patter the same way steak makes some people feel I haven t actually cooked anything in the book as written, but riffed on a couple of them, and than that I found the recipes and writing inspiring, which is what I need when I m in a cooking rut This would make a great gift for the foodie in your life, because it suggests music to match with many of the recipes, a [...]


    21. I checked this book out of the library with hopes of finding several recipes that I could use for dinner parties with vegetarian friends Nothing really seems to fit the bill in terms of overall balance, and by that I mean heavy on the beans ormething Some interesting sauces I ll probably copy and save to try later, but overall, not for me.which is not to say it isn t perfect for someone else.


    22. Great ideasGreat recipes, great tips The book starts with several popular seasoning blends before moving on to many dishes It closes with some teas and drinks Some really great ideas I i cant wait to make some of these dishes.





    23. Some interesting flavors and I like how he didn t overly rely on tofu and meat substitutions, but probably won t go back to reread.



    24. Afro Vegan definitely promotes African southern flavors and flair Song and book recommendations accompanied most recipes To my delight were various ways to cook black eyed peas, one of my childhood staples The recipes included are definitely legume heavy, but enjoyable.
