If you don’t like seeing pictures of violence towards animals being posted, you need to help stop the violence, not the pictures.

I discovered a little Indian market near by and am in love. Granted, I got the TastyBite stuff from Food Lion but I got some curry rice and some roti skins from there so I could make homemade roti wraps. I got some other stuff but I didn’t take a lot of pictures (I definitely will next time!) I’ve tried a few different vegan flavors of the TastyBite Indian cuisine and like all of them so far. The rice was also pretty tasty, although I think I prefer making my own white rice and seasoning it. And of course, I needed some plantains. I find it difficult to eat roti without plantains nowadays for some reasons. Love roti and plantains together.

In this 2nd part of Episode 6, I show you guys how I make crispy and oh so delicious zucchini fritters topped with a cashew cream cheese. This combo definitely reminded me of a crab cake and remoulade dipping sauce back in the days when I was a pescatarian !It was SO GOOD. I hope you guys enjoy the recipe.

Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean, and Southern Flavors Remixed By Bryant Terry

Product Description:

“African, Caribbean, and southern food are all known and loved as vibrant and flavor-packed cuisines. In Afro-Vegan, renowned chef and food justice activist Bryant Terry reworks and remixes the favorite staples, ingredients, and classic dishes of the African Diaspora to present wholly new, creative culinary combinations that will amaze vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike.

 With more than 100 modern and delicious dishes that draw on Terry’s personal memories as well as the history of food that has traveled from the African continent, Afro-Vegan takes you on an international food journey. Accompanying the recipes are Terry’s insights about building community around food, along with suggested music tracks from around the world and book recommendations. For anyone interested in improving their well-being, Afro-Vegan’s groundbreaking recipes offer innovative, plant-based global cuisine that is fresh, healthy, and forges a new direction in vegan cooking.

Blending these colorful cuisines results in delicious recipes like Smashed Potatoes, Peas, and Corn with Chile-Garlic Oil, a recipe inspired by the Kenyan dish irio, and Cinnamon-Soaked Wheat Berry Salad with dried apricots, carrots, and almonds, which is based on a Moroccan tagine. Creamy Coconut-Cashew Soup with Okra, Corn, and Tomatoes pays homage to a popular Brazilian dish while incorporating classic Southern ingredients, and Crispy Teff and Grit Cakes with Eggplant, Tomatoes, and Peanuts combines the Ethiopian grain teff with stone-ground corn grits from the Deep South and North African zalook dip. There’s perfect potluck fare, such as the simple, warming, and intensely flavored Collard Greens and Cabbage with Lots of Garlic, and the Caribbean-inspired Cocoa Spice  Cake with Crystallized Ginger and Coconut-Chocolate Ganache, plus a refreshing Roselle-Rooibos Drink that will satisfy any sweet tooth.”

Please support Afro-Vegan cookbook rather than Thug Kitchen.  Here’s why:

“Bryant Terry is a chef, educator, and author renowned for his activism to create a healthy, just, and sustainable food system. Bryant’s fourth book, Afro Vegan was published by Ten Speed Press/Random House April 2014. Just 2 months after publication, Afro-Vegan was named by Amazon as one of the best cookbooks of 2014. In December it was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in the Outstanding Literary Work category.

If you want a taste of culture-rich, ethnic and truly vegan food, (Thug Kitchen uses honey in some recipes), without the culture appropriation and perpetuation of negative and racist stereotypes about an entire community, consider getting Afro-Vegan."  ~  Hugo Dominguez
