This is a firm textured but moist, very flavorful burger that is tender, but won’t fall apart if you put it on a grill. Be warned! It has a rather shocking similarity to ground turkey – some claimed they had to “do a double-take” to make sure it wasn’t meat! But rest assured that this delicious looking AND TASTING vegan hamburger recipe will have you happy and feeling great about your cruelty free choice.

A few days ago I was fantasizing about delicious foot long po’ boy sandwiches, piled high with cornmeal crusted fried oysters or shrimp.

So find myself trying to improve upon perfection (or at least make something different). Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Crispy Spicy Popeye’s Chicken Style Vegan Fried Chicken

If we want to present veganism as a viable alternative to omnivores, I feel the best way is to show them, not tell them. No lectures, no crazy dead animal pictures, no guilt trips about the planet or their health. I instead choose to motivate people by stirring their curiosity and eliminating their fear of change. I do that by showing them first hand that what vegans eat can be just as delicious as any meat-based counterpart. This Popeye’s style vegan fried chicken recipe does the trick!

Though your home will smell fabulous and exotic, this dish is quite time consuming to make, and definitely falls under the category of “slow-cooking.” It’s something to make on a weekend, not something you throw together after you rush home from a busy day at the office and a hellish commute. But trust me, it’s worth the work and time you’ll put in.

There it’s as common on the table as salt and pepper — used on damn near everything. Though Crystal, Tapatio, Cholula, Sriracha and Tabasco are all very popular, they don’t compare to the hot pepper sauce you can make right in your own kitchen.

The Soup Salad or Smoothie 30 Day Challenge

| 02/23/2015 | Reply

BlacksGoingVegan.Com is sponsoring another challenge as we push forward with our goal to improve the eating habits and nutrition of THOUSANDS of African Americans each month. The March 2015 challenge focuses on increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables. USDA recommendations are that we ingest a minimum of five fresh fruits/vegetables per day. Sadly, my participation in a dozen or more cooking groups online has made me aware of how few of us even eat two. There is no way to replace the phytonutrients, fiber, antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, calcium and vitamins your body gets from eating fresh raw fruits and/or raw or lightly cooked vegetables. So if you’re one of the people who wants to do better but needs a little kick in the butt to make it happen, here it is.
