But in keeping with my desire to be vegan and save the world or myself or whatever I still try and try. Sometimes it's not very hard. Working at a library, I have an endless supply of new and innovative cookbooks at my disposal.
Enter this one: Vegan Soul Kitchen by Bryant Terry. This caught my eye on the shelves of MI library because of a place I ate in Atlanta that served vegan soul food - Soul Vegetarian. This cookbook is probably my favorite vegan cookbook ever. More than just an African-American cookbook, it's an American cookbook, period. Fresh tasty stuff that is good for you, too. Indulgent treats. Multiple recipes for watermelon, which I've just really gotten into recently. Includes Lunches, Dinners(entrees like Tofu and Beans), Desserts (even a recipe for a vegan coconut butter pie crust which I am anticipating with all my soul!), drinks with names like Memphis Mint Julep and California Slurricane. Tonight's dinner was greedily ripped from the pages, without many changes at all:
|Yes, I still eat on the floor.|
|Memphis Mint Julep or "green mint slurry with booze."|
