In this enlightening cookbook, chef Jennifer Brule brings
southern-style food together with plant-based approaches to eating.
Her down-to-earth style and 105 recipes will immediately appeal to
vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters alike. These dishes are also a
boon for those who simply love southern food and want to learn more
about options for flexitarian eating. Brule deliciously demystifies
meat substitutes and flavors up familiar vegetables. Imagine
vegetarian barbecue: Brule's recipe for spicing, saucing, and
oven-roasting jackfruit offers a robustly tasty alternative to
pulled pork. Tofu is the perfect base for crispy Southern Fried
Buttermilk Nuggets, and cauliflower beautifully fills in for shrimp
in a Cajun-inspired etouffee.
Brule also highlights just how many traditional southern dishes are
in fact vegetarian, and they're gathered together for you in this
gorgeously illustrated book. Beloved foods like tomato pie, pimento
cheese, grits casserole, and more will encourage you to skip the
meat without a second thought. With step-by-step instructions and
notes on how to easily find new ingredients, The New Vegetarian
gathers a feast for everyone.
