In celebration of Black History all year round Ri shows us how to make vegan soul food. Soul food originally came from African American culture; it focuses on creating an experience through food. In this video Ri walks us through making four different vegan soul food recipes, including cornbread, collard greens, red beans and rice, and fried oyster mushrooms.


Vegan Fried Chicken From Mushrooms

2 cups sunflower oil, for frying
2 cups spelt flour, divided
2 tablespoons garlic powder, divided
2 teaspoons onion powder, divided
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
1 of teaspoon smoked paprika
2 cups mushrooms, shiitake or oyster, rinsed and drained
1 teaspoon of garlic and herb seasoning


1. Add oil to a large, deep pan on medium heat until the pan is fully coated.
2. While the pan is heating, add 1 cup of spelt flour to a large bowl along with 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of onion powder, salt, pepper, and 1 cup water. Mix this together thoroughly. This will be your wet batter.
3. Next, prepare the dry batter in a separate bowl by adding remaining 1 cup spelt flour, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon smoked paprika. Mix dry ingredients well.
4. Add mushrooms to the wet batter, making sure that the mushrooms are all evenly coated.
5. Once the mushrooms are evenly coated, add them to the dry batter, tossing vigorously to ensure that each mushroom is (once again) evenly coated.
6. Add the mushrooms to the heated pan. Let the mushrooms cook for 5 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown.
7. Once finished, add to a plate that has a paper towel or kitchen towel placed on top to catch any excess grease.
8. Season with garlic and herb seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.

Have you tried vegan soul food?

What if I can get grape seed oil … what else oil can I use

AnimalsAre BeautifulPeople says:

Veganism isn't "dominated by white culture" not in the least bit. Anyone can choose not to be a homicidal asshole to innocent animals. You don't need anyone's permission NOT to be a total bloodthirsty asshole.

Chicken isn't vegan! Chicken is a bird species.

Peter Mueller says:

The vegan lifestyle… deep fry something and tell yourself it is chicken 😀

⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️ 1:15 should we care about “representation” or “whiteness” tough? Veganism is an ethical stance against animal use. It is about the animals. Not about us and our feelings. Even if only white people were vegan, I as a black person, would still go vegan because I have got my priorities straight.
Stop making veganism anthropocentric.

I would also love to try to friend mushrooms! I loved fried chicken as well, I kind of miss it… one day, I will give it a try! 💚

Quest Music says:

When you are not preparing and eating to celebrate tradition, remember that extended cooking destroys many nutrients and esp disease protective chemistry in greens. Also, garlic and onions have the highest anti-cancer properties when consumed raw. The onions should be chopped finely, and the garlic minced. They should both be exposed to air for 10 minutes or more before eating.

Chop the collards more finely and microwave steam them for 2 to 4 minutes for maximum benefit. Add a little mustard powder for its myrosinase enzyme. That will greatly enhance the disease protective chemistry in the collards and other brassicas, esp broccoli and broccoli sprouts (sulforaphane). Sources: Dr Michael Greger, Dr Rhonda Patrick.
