About the Book



Pre-publication subtitle: 100 easy, healthy, delicious recipes for vegan soul food



Book Synopsis



100 vegan recipes that riff on Southern cooking in surprising and delicious ways, beautifully illustrated with full-color photography.

Jenné Claiborne grew up in Atlanta eating classic Soul Food--fluffy biscuits, smoky sausage, Nana's sweet potato pie--but thought she'd have to give all that up when she went vegan. As a chef, she instead spent years tweaking and experimenting to infuse plant-based, life-giving, glow-worthy foods with the flavor and depth that feeds the soul.

In Sweet Potato Soul, Jenné revives the long tradition of using fresh, local ingredients creatively in dishes like Coconut Collard Salad and Fried Cauliflower Chicken. She improvises new flavors in Peach Date BBQ Jackfruit Sliders and Sweet Potato-Tahini Cookies. She celebrates the plant-based roots of the cuisine in Bootylicious Gumbo and savory-sweet Georgia Watermelon & Peach Salad. And she updates classics with Jalapeño Hush Puppies, and her favorite, Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls.

Along the way, Jenné explores the narratives surrounding iconic and beloved soul food recipes, as well as their innate nutritional benefits--you've heard that dandelion, mustard, and turnip greens, okra, and black eyed peas are nutrition superstars, but here's how to make them super tasty, too.

From decadent pound cakes and ginger-kissed fruit cobblers to smokey collard greens, amazing crabcakes and the most comforting sweet potato pie you'll ever taste, these better-than-the-original takes on crave-worthy dishes are good for your health, heart, and soul.



Review Quotes




"This beautifully photographed, comprehensive work of Claiborne's cuisine deserves to be a part of your everyday repertoire."--VegNews

Sweet Potato Soul starts with an Erykah Badu quote and ends with a recipe for pecan muhammara. Clearly, there's a lot to love. The debut cookbook from beloved vegan food blogger Jenné Claiborne, Sweet Potato Soul offers vegan twists on soul food classics alongside memories of Claiborne flipping fluffy pancakes to the sound of gospel music in her Nana's kitchen. Fittingly, a wonderfully comprehensive section on southern pantry staples devotes almost 6 full pages to sweet potatoes varietals. What looks good: Fluffy sweet potato biscuits, coconut collard salad, "Harlem caviar" black eyed pea salad, Creole red bean sausages, and jackfruit jambalaya.--Bon Appetit

Many traditional dishes are off-limits to a vegetarian or vegan, but the smart use of spices and other ingredients can bring them back within reach. This is just what Jenné Claiborne does so beautifully in her new book, Sweet Potato Soul. Claiborne brings Southern flair . . . to plant-based dishes. That means shredded sweet potatoes and pecans in her granola, coconut three ways (oil, milk and sugar) in her peach cobbler and oyster mushrooms in her étouffée. . . . I knew it was the real deal when my fiance, whose people come from Louisiana, took one bite and put down his spoon--so he could take a photo.--Washington Post

Jenné makes a vegan lifestyle look easy--not to mention totally delicious. Her tips and recipe roundups are super-practical for vegans and non-vegans alike.--Rachael Ray Every Day

One potato, two potato, give me all your sweet potatoes!! Jenne has crafted the best soul satisfying comfort vegan recipes.--Chloe Coscarelli, author of Chloe Flavor and Chloe's Kitchen

We've all been waiting for this! Jenné Claiborne's Sweet Potato Soul cookbook is an absolute dream for anyone craving Southern flavors and soul food classics. Hearty, inviting, and always delicious, Jenné's recipes prove time and time again that stick-to-your-ribs eating can be completely plant-based!--Sarah Britton, Holisitic Nutritionist and founder of My New Roots

Jenné has done an incredible job of compiling all of her favorite vegan soul food classics in this stunning cookbook. Vegans and those curious about plant-based eating will love the beautiful images, recipes, and thoughtful narrative in this book. I can't wait to dig in (especially to Nana's Sweet Potato Pie)!--Dana Shultz, author of Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking
