Overview

"Crunk" is a Southern slang term that means "to get excited." It's about passion and having pride in where you come from. For vegan blogger Bianca Phillips, it's also about creating no-frills, no-nonsense dishes that warm the soul and keep rich Southern traditions alive. As the northeast Arkansas native explains, the Dirty South isn't about cleanliness; it's about ties to the land and the hominess of passing on a rich culture of good food and good times. By incorporating plant-based staples (beans, corn, and fresh produce) that have been the basis of Southern cooking for centuries, Bianca invites everyone to enjoy cooking simple 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.

Outstanding cook book! I am addicted to cook books, I love to read them like novels, and I've never had one where I have enjoyed every recipe. I have repeated requests from my husband to try more recipes. I love that she teaches you how to make vegan "meats" and know exactly what is in them. Don't be afraid of the spices! Dive in - I was able to find everything at my local Pete's Fresh Market. Her flavors and spices are wonderfully balanced.

I adore this cookbook, Bianca has some mighty fantastic recipes inside. I might as well dog-ear the whole book, there are so many recipes I want to try! Since there is no preview of the book, I have typed up the entire list of all chapters + recipes. You can find that in the Post Punk Kitchen Forum, in the cookbook section, specifically in the Cookin' Crunk discussion thread.
