Yellows and Reds
Cole’s book features remarkable vibrant colors of yellows and reds that make you want to turn the pages. Something about those combination of colors that make you feel warm inside. Her chapters are labeled “Good Morning Grand Rising,” “Jamaicain Saturdays,” “Kick up Rumpus,” “Good “Ol Southern Comfort,” “Da Butters, Da Dips, Da Jams and Da Jellies,” closing with “Dem Sweet Thangs.”
Following her humble yet process to success introduction, Eat Plants B**ch! dedicates the next chapter to what veganism and social change means to our community. It is often said that we are made to become advocates when we simply want to thrive at our business and teaching black people about being a healthy vegan, even in 2022 takes a village. Introducing the voices of other vegan and like-minded chefs like Erin Wells, Chef Quan, Chef El-Amin and Sunni Speaks just validates that we are all in this healthy eating message together. This book is a collection of chef recipes that are inside of a village that Pink Cole created when opening Slutty Vegan. She knew she needed to educate as well as fill our bellies.
The Vegan FAQ section was refreshing because it helped answer basic questions about a vegan lifestyle that we are sometimes scared to ask; especially connected to personal health, medications and family acceptance.
No cookbook vegan or otherwise holds its wait in gold without startling images and Eat Plants B**ch! does Pink Cole and her team justice. What I love about her photos are the dips of juice or sauce off the sides, the imperfect messes that we all experience in the kitchen that make the images true.
My favorite section was the “Kick Up Ruckus” set of menus that we’re all hot and spicy; full of Jamaican dishes that include her take on tacos, (black bean and portobello) egg rolls (avocado egg rolls) and cole slaw (‘bacon’ broccoli).
You will be motivated to make recipes that are easy and those that are more complex because this cookbook will help to build that confidence by equipping you with recipes that are delicious.
In addition to being a great resource for vegan recipes, Eat Plants B**ch! is also a powerful force for social change. A portion of the proceeds from each sale goes towards supporting black-owned businesses and organizations that are working to end systemic racism. So not only will you be eating delicious food, but you’ll also be helping to make the world a better place.
Eat Plants B**ch! celebrates Piny’s belief that cooking and eating irresistiable vegan comfort food should be fun and easy, too. With this book, it won’t be long before you’re be declaring her timeless mantra: Eat Plants B**ch!
