Vegetarian SOULFOOD

We are a group of vegetarians committed to the health and spiritual development of African Americans. As we all know, traditional African American recipes (chitterins', hamhocks & blackeyed peas, fried chicken, etc...)-while admittedly good tasting, is unhealthy. OK, so you want that "soul food" taste, the one you grew up with and can't help but desire....I'm hearin ya.You can actually have a great vegetarian meal "almost" like mama's cookin'- without meat. The trick is to be real clear about what actually creates the favors you desire. ..If you really thought about it. All those meals you had were cooked, were with your basic soulfood spices and ingredients (many of which you probably still got in yo' cabinet). These spices are the key to getting that soulfood taste. The meat itself is actually pretty tasteless without all that "stuff" on it. So join in, learn, share and make new friends. -Peace & Blessings, Veggie Sistah
