Vegan Soul Food Recipes
I love this recipe since it tastes like Nashville Hot Chicken, without the meat! It’s packed with spices and flavor.
Rich and creamy, this is the stuff of vegan dreams. Packed with all the cheese, this has become one of my new favorites.
This is soul food at its finest. And, it’s easy to make! Reheat some for leftover meals as well.
Get all of the taste, but none of the guilt, with this cornmeal-topped okra. This is savory, delicious and addictive.
I like these since they’re a healthier, lighter vegan take on a Southern staple. So filling, flavorful and super tasty!
Fruit means this is healthy, right? Top this two berry-filled dessert with a generous scoop of classic vanilla ice cream!
This take on a non-vegan classic has me drooling. It’s pure savory goodness, thanks to mushrooms and a decadent sauce.
This appetizer mixes sweet and savory. I can’t eat just one. Top them off with some maple syrup or butter.
What’s a list of vegan soul food without a take on a hearty gumbo? Slurp this filling delightful goodness up.

Tofu, rice, beans, pepper and onion make for one tasty New Years dish. Take my advice and prepare some the night before the festivities.
How’s this for a new Southern classic? Top this sweet and salty combo with butter, powdered sugar, or, what I’m into — powdered sugar.
This pie is as pretty as it is yummy. Don’t forget to take a picture after it’s topped with whipped cream.
Tasty and healthy twists on BBQ, such as these pea collard rolls, are my favorite. Care for some seconds, anyone?
A side dish that goes well with anything, like coleslaw, is an essential to have when making soul food. Yum!
No, contrary to popular belief, these aren’t just for kids. Grab the tartar sauce or ketchup, and dip away. Ahoy!
Perfect for a party, this brownie is just dying to be eaten. Rich and chewy is just the way I like them.
A simple yet colorful take on veggies that’s perfect for sharing with family and friends. Eat them before they’re gone!
I’m obsessed with topping these with powdered sugar, and enjoying them piping hot. This healthier take is a little more guilt-free.
This is such a classic, that there isn’t much to write or say about it. Eat it and enjoy!
20. Southern Bowls
Want to make something that’s healthy, fresh, trendy and pretty? I love that this dish is all of those things.
This vibrant salad is as Instagrammable as it is tasty. See, soul food doesn’t always mean greasy fried dishes!
22. Peach Cobbler
Crispy, fluffy and the perfect summer treat. It is best eaten with ice cream, whipped cream or extra crumble topping.
Fluffy, buttery and packed with flavor, this is the right holder for vegan butter or margarine. It’s a fixture with chili and other soups.
Creamy, crunchy and mouth watering, these cheesecake bars are good for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. I love them!
This takes buffalo cauliflower to the next level. I highly recommend noshing on these while you eat your favorite potato chips.
This salad is a feast for the eyes, with its purple, red, green and white hues. Good to eat daily!
Top this with all of the fixings (tomato, onion, lettuce, mayo and vegan cheese), and dig into one jumbo, hearty burger!
This unique dessert is super tangy, subtly sweet and light, which makes for the perfect combo, if you ask me.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge corn fan. I like this because it mixes one of my favorite veggies with a Southern staple.
There’s nothing like a pot pie on a cold and rainy day. A cornbread holder makes it taste even better.
31. Pecan Pie
I saved the best for last. Here’s a secret — this gooey rich pie has a Southern twist, thanks to some rum.
