Afro-Vegan

Farm-fresh African, Caribbean & southern flavors remixed
Vegan cookbook review

Chef Bryant Terry is back with another vegan cookbook, this time a fusion of southern, African, and Caribbean cuisines. One of the things I really like about Mr. Terry’s books is that so many of the flavors and textures are new to me, so just paging through them is like reading the menus of a dozen new restaurants.

Afro-Vegan includes more than 100 recipes divided into 10 chapters:
