Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
I love food, who does not. However, I am changing my food habits. I decided to start eating smarter and healthier for great reasons. Health is my number one reason. I decided that I wanted to learn vegan and Raw recipes so here I begin. fro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed I love this book. I have tried over 20 recipes and enjoyed most of them including family members. If I was not satisfied with the taste either the hubby or guest was so it was a win, win for me I left myself open to all kinds of 'clean' foods. Those i regularly eat and those i don't like as well as trying new foods. The recipes I enjoyed most were: Spicy Mustard Greens Tofu Curry with Mustard Greens Muscovado-Roasted Plaintains Twice Baked Sweet potatoes with Winter Salsa Collards and Cabbage with Lots of Garlic Glazed Carrot Salad Smashed Potatoes, Peas and Corn with Chile-Garlic Oil These are definitely part of my staple foods to cook. There was not any that i just didnt like to the point of not wanting to try because if i didnt like it my hubby did. I liked the Sweet Plantain and fresh Corn Cakes also the Skillet Cornbread with Pecan Dukkah I enjoyed the selection of recipes that is included, which covered cold drinks, preserves and porridge sections. I really liked the conversion chart located in the back also. The menu suggestions were on point and the TIPS were a delight. I completely loved the book. You will Definitely love the book. This books sits on my shelf as a DARN GREAT READ with a 5 star review rating.
I really enjoy how the author incorporates music, life stories, humor, and culture in relaying the recipes. This book is more than a cookbook, but the recipes are absolutely great and you can enjoy them even if you aren't vegan.
When I was looking through cookbooks and found this one, I knew I had to have it. It covers Africa (my current home), Brazil (my previous home), the Caribbean (never lived there but have visited it a few times), the South (my origins) and food (my passion)!! Yes, this book was calling my name. The author describes his book best so take a look at what he says -"Imagine if you removed the animal products from African, Caribbean, Southern, and other Afro-influence cuisines then meticulously cut, pasted, and removes the food to produce recipes with farm-fresh ingredients as their heart and soul: that is Afro-Vegan." Doesn't that make you want to run out and get a copy of this book NOW??!! Recipes Over a hundred recipes in the book and they all look absolutely amazing. First few on my list to try are creole-spiced plantain chips, za'atar, harissa, blackened cauliflower with plum tomato sauce, slow-braised mustard greens, savory grits with slow-cooked collard greens, and maple-glazed banana johnnycakes. Really, I want to make everything. Right. Now. Stories There are stories woven in to each chapter and recipe that really make this book special. It is so much more than a cookbook. Music and books As much as I love the recipes, I think the music and book recommendations for each recipe is my favorite part of the book. What a great idea! So really, go pick this book up now. You'll be glad you did!
