Black Food Bloggers To Immediately Add To Your IG Feed | Cartageous.com/Blog

There is so much work that needs to be done to end racial injustice, and it doesn’t stop with protests and making donations. It involves change in every facet of our lives and that includes what we cook, why we cook it and the conversations with friends and family at the dinner table. So we’ve compiled a must-follow list of Black food bloggers that are providing us with stellar (vegan, not-so-vegan, Afro-Caribbean, Southern, you name it) cookbooks and recipes with a history. This list is not comprehensive! We hope you’ll share your favorite Black food bloggers in the comments (or by tagging us on Instagram).

1. Aaron Hutcherson (@thehungryhutch)

As an NYC-based recipe developer, food writer and professional eater, Aaron describes his blog as “savory and sweet recipes that reflect a mix of my soul food upbringing, professional culinary expertise, and gastronomic curiosity.”  His blog features staple recipes (think homemade banana pudding and oven-baked ribs), but there are also plenty of dishes that may be new-to-you, like spicy roasted delica squash and pickled cucumber relish.

2. Jenné Claiborne (@sweetpotatosoul)

Sweet Potato Soul is much more than just an ode to everyone’s favorite root vegetable. This vegan chef is also sharing vibrant Southern-inspired recipes (hello, jerk jackfruit tacos) on her blog and in her cookbook. If you’re considering making the switch to a plant-based diet, don’t miss her tips on how to make your produce last longer and her meal plans.

3. Meiko Drew (@meikoandthedish)

With tried-and-true favorites like salt and pepper chicken thighs, Cajun shrooms and grits and smoky beef and tomato soup, it’s kind of impossible to decide which one of Meiko’s mouthwatering dishes to try first.

#ad | First of all… happy OCTOBER! Second of all: Merry Soup Season! And lastly… this recipe for Smoky Beef & Tomatoes soup is the only way I recommend you kick the season off. That’s right -just what the doctored ordered.  A BIG-OLE-BOWL of hearty tomato soup with hunky chunks of lean ground beef, from Laura’s Lean spiced with smoky chipotles sounds like a recipe I would definitely have on stand-by as temperatures drop.  You can pickup Laura’s Lean at your local Kroger.

Stir in garlic powder (I add a lot), garlic & herb seasoning (I add a lot of this, too), and a few shakes of basil and oregano. Sauté a few minutes while stirring. Once the veggies are softened, stir in the spinach. Sprinkle with a little more garlic & herb seasoning, if you’d like, tossing to mix. Add cooked noodles, along with a splash of veggie stock, a bit more oil and another sprinkle of garlic powder, basil and oregano. Sauté for about 2 more minutes, and then it’s ready! Serve on your favorite plate with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice over top. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and oregano, to taste. Then, Honey, eat good and enjoy! #vegan #foodie #tabithabrown #garliclovers #mccormickseasoning
