A Dozen Delicious Southern-Inspired Vegan Recipes

You might be thinking…what exactly is a Southern-inspired recipe, anyway? It turns out the answer to that question is more complex than one might think!

The South is perhaps best known for a few distinctive items like fried chicken, grits, BBQ, cornbread, hush puppies, boiled peanuts, and fried green tomatoes. But in general, Southern fare is characterized by a lot of fried foods in general, fried meats in particular, and the use of animal fats for flavoring. Not sounding too healthy or vegan-friendly, right?

Worry not! Many of the recipes below feature traditionally Southern elements or ingredients, but have been veganized (many are even raw) and concurrently made healthier through the use of wholesome plant-based ingredients.

So check out these twelve delicious, Southern-inspired recipes – vegan style!
