Going vegan isn’t necessarily an act of dietary austerity. In addition to plenty of everyday snack foods, there is a surprising tradition of vegan soul food that lets non meat- and dairy- consumers enjoy the kind of rib-sticking fare that carnivores seem to think belongs solely to them. Lavanya Ramanathan visited the Everlasting Life Cafe to check out how one local vegan soul food restaurant works. See Mark Gail’s photos of vegan country fried steak.
