Jenné Claiborne grew up in Atlanta eating classic Soul Food–fluffy biscuits, smoky sausage, Nana’s sweet potato pie–but thought she’d have to give all that up when she went vegan.  As a chef, she instead spent years tweaking and experimenting to infuse plant-based, life-giving, glow-worthy foods with the flavor and depth that feeds the soul.
 
The result? Her first cookbook, SWEET POTATO SOUL, offering 100 vegan recipes that riff on Southern cooking in surprising and delicious ways, beautifully illustrated with full-color photography. Jenné 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 & Peach Salad. And she updates classics with Jalapeño Hush Puppies, and her favorite, Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls.
 
Along the way, Jenné 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.

Delicious southern soul classics gone vegan 🙂 This book is beautiful! It’s filled with Jenne’s energy, passion, and compassion and it is motivating me to get in the kitchen and explore Southern cuisine (not my natural habitat). 🙂 It has lots of sweet potato-based recipes along with other classics using peaches, pecans, and so much more. Although there is a lot of oil for some of the fried foods most of the recipes are pretty healthy veganized versions. Great job Jenne!

Approachable and delicious recipes Fantastic book with approachable recipes. Jenne Claiborne did a wonderful job “veganizing” my favorite comfort food. I loved the details she included about the history of dishes and ingredients. Already tried the tempeh bacon and Mac and cheese. Can’t wait to try more tonight. Thank you for a wonderful unique book!

Delicious recipes for a non-Vegan Yes, I eat animal products, but on the days that I designate as “V” days, usually 2 or 3 per week, this book is filled with wonderful recipes that don’t use any animal products; I’m slowly trying to adopt a totally vegan diet and this cookbook will certainly help me on my journey.
