As a resident of Atlanta for over 8 years now, I have come to adore some of the local vegan fare. When I first arrived as a carpet bagging northerner, I was not much of a fan of the local favorite, Soul Vegetarian. It several all vegan southern soul food. The yankee in me felt this was a bit heavy and it took me a few year to realize how special this place was. Now it ranks as a favorite in the Atlanta area.
As an homage, I recently made my own Soul Veg dinner to share with both Ashley and Jamie. It was right off their menu, Bar B-Que seitan, mac & cheeze, candied sweet potatoes, corn bread and I even added a salad with their beloved price dressing. For an at home meal, this was pretty spot on. It was actually a lot of fun to re-create such an Atlanta favorite for the night.
I am sure that the Atlanta locals who find their way to this post will appreciate the joy of having soul veg in your kitchen!
