Thank you for visiting The Vgn Way. We are Nija and Shad, Atlanta natives. We are home cooks, food bloggers and recipe developers. Shad embarked on his vegan journey 20+ years ago, while I have embraced a health-conscious plant-based lifestyle since 2010. We want to create an engaging community where we share delicious recipes that reflect our commitment to preserving our culinary heritage and inspire you to embrace the world of plant-based comfort and soul food.
While traditional soul and comfort foods often incorporates animal products like meat, dairy, and eggs, adapting these recipes to be vegan opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
Our self-taught journey has given us the confidence and expertise to create delicious and authentic vegan soul food recipes. That honor the traditions of our southern culture.
We strive to capture the essence of soul food cuisine; reimagined with flavorful, healthy ingredients while embracing the use of flavorful plant-based ingredients. You’ll also see global recipes we have veganized like our mushroom pho inspired by our love of travel along with our vegan travel guides.
Our aim is to offer food that is not only scrumptious, like our vegan mac and cheese featured on Parade , but also wholesome recipe like our tofu skewers featured on VegNews. Recipes enjoyed from everyone from devoted vegans to flexitarians alike.
Southern Classics Made Vegan Like:
Becoming vegan is a personal journey, and each individual must make that decision for themselves. However we believe that incorporating a vegan/plant-based diet or incorporating a meat-free Monday recipe into your life can be a fulfilling choice and can add value to everyone’s life.
We hope you discover delicious and easy-to-make vegan recipes that you will enjoy and want to share with family and friends.
Make sure to follow us on Instagram and subscribe to our newsletter for updates on new gluten-free vegan products and recipes. We would love to have you as part of our community.
