In Afro-Vegan, renowned chef and food justice activist Bryant Terry reworks and remixes the favorite staples, ingredients, and classic dishes of the African Diaspora to present more than 100 wholly new, creative culinary combinations that will amaze vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike. 

Blending African, Carribean, and southern cuisines results in delicious recipes like Smashed Potatoes, Peas, and Corn with Chile-Garlic Oil, a recipe inspired by the Kenyan dish irio, and Cinnamon-Soaked Wheat Berry Salad with dried apricots, carrots, and almonds, which is based on a Moroccan tagine. Creamy Coconut-Cashew Soup with Okra, Corn, and Tomatoes pays homage to a popular Brazilian dish while incorporating classic Southern ingredients, and Crispy Teff and Grit Cakes with Eggplant, Tomatoes, and Peanuts combines the Ethiopian grain teff with stone-ground corn grits from the Deep South and North African zalook dip. There’s perfect potluck fare, such as the simple, warming, and intensely flavored Collard Greens and Cabbage with Lots of Garlic, and the Caribbean-inspired Cocoa Spice Cake with Crystallized Ginger and Coconut-Chocolate Ganache, plus a refreshing Roselle-Rooibos Drink that will satisfy any sweet tooth. 

With more than 100 modern and delicious dishes that draw on Terry’s personal memories as well as the history of food that has traveled from the African continent, Afro-Vegan takes you on an international food journey. Accompanying the recipes are Terry’s insights about building community around food, along with suggested music tracks from around the world and book recommendations. For anyone interested in improving their well-being, Afro-Vegan’s groundbreaking recipes offer innovative, plant-based global cuisine that is fresh, healthy, and forges a new direction in vegan cooking.

Lowest used price: $8.77
List price: $24.95
Author: Ziggy Marley
Brand: Akashic Books

"[Ziggy's] first collection of recipes pays homage to the flavors of his youth and the food he loves to cook for his wife and five children."
--People.com

"Ziggy’s cookbook is designed to nourish the body, mind, and soul."
--Food & Wine

"With a health-focused approach, Ziggy Marley reveals memories and food traditions in his new family cookbook."
--Ebony

"The easy directions will have you heading to the kitchen to try these recipes yourself."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Ziggy rolls up his sleeves to produce Vegetarian Hash, dumplings, Jerk Chicken, Tofu in Coconut Curry, Fish Soup, Caribbean Salsa, Hempseed Pesto, Date and Kale Smoothie, Frittata, Mancakes, Mama Carmelita's flan and even offers the best recipe for baking Stout Gingerbread. Simply explained, gluten-free, organic fruits and vegetables combine to make healthy, vegetarian, vegan and non-vegetarian meals."
--The New York Beacon

"The book features updated versions of favorite Jamaican and Rastafarian-inspired meals from those closest to him. Along with Marley's own creations, like the sublime Coconut Dream Fish and aforementioned Mancakes, recipes include his wife Orly's morning oatmeal, his sister Karen's lentil soup, recipes from his daughter Judah and mother-in-law, fresh juices like those his father enjoyed and contributions from several renowned chefs."
--Parade

"Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook is a medley of lively recipes like Roasted Yam Tart and Coconut Dream Fish."
--Family Circle

"Filled with enticing photos, the book includes the recipes of Marley and those close to him, including sister Karen and daughter Judah. It's a celebration of food and family. Containing meat and fish dishes, as well as vegan and vegetarian creations, it draws not only from the Jamaican and Rastafarian cultures that nurtured Marley, but also his wife Orly's Israeli-Iranian roots."
--The Mercury News

"An exquisite and delectable menu of succulent food."
-- Crave

"The book is inspired by Jamaican meals Ziggy enjoyed while growing up--but with an up-dated healthy spin. It features contributions by wife Orly, sister Karen and daughter Judah.
--The Chronicle Journal

"Marley delivers a book full of flavors that appeal to the taste buds but also to clean eating . . . There is truly something here for every adventurous and organic-conscious foodie from the Marley family kitchen."
--Insights Magazine

"This is no typical island cookbook; rather, it's an innovative collection of healthful recipes from his family's Rastafarian and Jamaican roots, combined with dishes from his wife's Persian/Israeli background."
--Palo Alto Daily News

As the oldest son of Bob and Rita Marley, Ziggy was raised with both traditional Jamaican food and the more natural and healthy "ital" food of the family's Rastafari culture. The fifty-four recipes included in the book, inspired by Ziggy's youth and accompanied by beautiful photos, are contributed by Ziggy, his wife Orly, his sister Karen, as well as renowned chefs Bruce Sherman (Coconut Carrot Curry), Ben Ford (Escabeche, Escovitch), and Leonie McDonald (Caribbean Salsa). Many of the recipes are vegetarian, vegan, and/or gluten-free.

From the introduction by Ziggy Marley:

"I first started dabbling in the kitchen as a teenager. I enjoyed making cornmeal porridge, and it helped me to begin appreciating the idea of nourishment, the idea that food can make your body feel better. I would make Irish moss and some of my dad's juices...Our Rasta culture was different than regular Jamaican culture. We used to have both sides then, because my auntie would cook the more traditional Jamaican food. On the other side, our Rasta culture drew us to a different way of eating. My father would always have a lot of juices and greens and nuts. We were introduced to ital food--fresh, organic, and nutritious, less salt."
