Vegan Soul Kitchen was lauded for its innovative, mouthwatering recipes that really turned soul food on its head. Now, Bryant Terry is back with a guide to preparing seasonally-inspired menus, as well as simple, artful meals. Offering a range of recipes, Terry shows both novice and seasoned home chefs how to get the most out of natural ingredients. Along with his signature recipes, Terry also shows how easy it is to cook nutritious, delicious, and inexpensive meals for family and friends to celebrate healthy, sustainable food. Peppered with cooking tips, how-tos for an easy-to-use kitchen, and musical suggestions,The Inspired Vegan will motivate readers not only to reconnect with real food but to have fun and build community in the process.

Recipes include: Savory Grits with Sauteed Fava Beans, Roasted Fennel, and Thyme; Tempeh Po Boy with Thick Mushroom Gravy; Puree of Chard with Cornmeal-Plantain Dumplings; Celeriac Soup with Sage-Almond Pesto; Skillet Cornbread with Whole Pecans; Mexican Chocolate Pudding (Sin Leche); Citrus-Hibiscus Sorbet; and more.

Review:

"Inspiration is the operative word when it comes to vegan cookery, and this smart, festive collection of recipes just might be received well by meatless eaters looking for a new angle. Food activist, educator, and author Terry (Vegan Soul Kitchen; Grub) has made it his life's mission to promote healthy ways of cooking and eating in our industrialized food system. This latest cookbook follows suit, with his trademark health-minded, globally inflected sensibility. Among his recommended staples for livening up the vegan kitchen are spice mixtures like harissa, creamed cashews in place of milk or heavy cream, and marinated beets. The proceedings are seasonally organized by themed menus, such as Crimson Cookout or Detroit Harvest. Cooks of all orientations will appreciate the ingenuity of kumquat-tangerine-Meyer lemonade and velvety grits with sauteed summer squash, heirloom tomatoes and parsley-walnut pesto as well as the less familiar flavors of dishes such as Thiakry with millet and raisins, a sweet grain pudding. Terry is a cultural omnivore who takes his own inspiration from music, film, and art, and he punctuates his recipes with suggested playlists and readings. In all, this is a wonderful volume for mindful, socially conscious, and urbane cooks. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Scot, January 26, 2012 (view all comments by Scot)
This is one of the best cookbooks I've encountered in a long time. It feels fresh (not easy with someone like me who reads a cookbook a week), and it is written by a person with a real point of view when it comes to food. In his life as an activist promoting healthy and sustainable eating among the communities most removed from the Whole Foods (read Whole Paycheck) lifestyle, Bryant Terry passionately makes the case that the communities mostly likely to feel alienated from the hippy, yuppy, organic loca-vore ethic have among the most to gain and much to contribute to the dialogue about sustainable, healthy eating. In fact, he argues that the traditional foodways of poor and minority communities have the answers to the pressing food justice issues we’re facing today.

This book reflect his passion about sustainable, healthy eating, while also providing us with some damned good recipes. The dishes are inspired, good for you, tasty answers to boring old granola and soy milk for breakfast; black beans and brown rice for lunch. Truly, a great cookbook from a terrific guy. Both the book and the author speak to an important issue to all of us.
