The Review of Afro - Vegan

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.

Afro-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 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.


  1. Plantains and Corn Cakes actually sound really good right now! I love plantains! I have a friend who is a vegan. I think he might enjoy this book as he is always polling facebook about new food ideas!

  2. Sidne where are you! Come out and play!

  3. Highly energetic post, I loved that a lot. Will there be a part 2?
