Recipes

Most Americans identify food in the Southern United States as being full of  high-fat animal foods, a lot of butter and cheese, and vegetables cooked in bacon grease! Growing up in South Carolina as a meat eater, I enjoyed the traditional southern dishes just as much as the next girl. My mom and I would spend hours in the kitchen together, cooking meals that were passed down from previous generations. The great feeling I remember from this time was not from the food I was eating, but the comfort I was given from spending hours at the dinner table with my family. When I became vegan, I fell in love with cooking dishes that presented a much healthier option, but did not lack in flavor, or family time! Let’s get real, no one has time everyday to spend hours painstakingly cooking a meal for their family. The solution: quick, easy and healthy meals that everyone will enjoy.

Unless otherwise noted, all the recipes below are vegan! For those out there who are not vegan or who are living with vegetarians and meat-eaters, you will also find alternative options included; however, I have found that vegans and non-vegans alike love these recipes!

ENJOY!
