It’s not about replicating meat; it’s about moving vegetables from side dish to the center of the plate. In the space of a few years, we lost a combined one hundred pounds by focusing our diet on vegetables, grains, and fruit — with the occasional over-the-top-dinner (and usually a dessert, too!). Most of all, it’s about making delicious food that just happens to be vegetarian. 


Justin Fox Burks, Author and photographer, Memphis, photographed five books including three cookbooks, Simply Grilling and The Southern Pantry by Jennifer Chandler, and his own Southern Vegetarian.
