Where do you find recipes for joy, empowerment, and celebration? Eco-chef, Bryant Terry, passionately points the way with Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy, and Creative African American Cuisine. In this interview, Terry digs into soul food’s green past and explains why healthy grub is the essential antidote to today’s “food deserts.” From the Black Panthers’ “Free Breakfast for Children” program, to the creation of b’healthy (Build Healthy Eating and Lifestyles to Help Youth), to the simple pleasures of a well-seasoned watermelon, Terry shows that eating well not only strengthens one’s body, but also one’s community. Tune in to get an aural sip of the Cali-inspired Slurricane (an homage to New Orleans), a nibble of Sweet Cornmeal-Coconut Butter Drop Biscuits, and a bite of the philosophy that inspires this dedicated food justice activist.
