The South is perhaps best known for a few distinctive items like fried chicken, grits, BBQ, cornbread, hush puppies, boiled peanuts, and fried green tomatoes.

The key here, though, is inspired. Many of the recipes below feature traditionally Southern elements or ingredients, but have been veganized and often concurrently made healthier through the use of wholesome plant-based ingredients.
