You probably know that adding more vegetables to your diet has tons of major health benefits — and that these days, you don’t need to chomp on a crudités platter to get your daily fill. Pivoting to a plant-based diet is trendier than ever for a reason: It can also be totally delicious. Yes, like as tasty as your standard carnivorous fare (or, as some would argue, even better). 

Pinky Cole’s work is a perfect example. The Atlanta-based restaurateur, formerly a producer on Maury, owns two vegan hot spots — Slutty Vegan and Bar Vegan — which are so popular they’ve convinced the likes of Shaq himself to go plant-based. (Think adventurous meat-free burgers with all the fixings and then some, and even crispy, New Orleans-style breaded shrimp except it’s from the ground, not the sea). 

While we highly recommend you check out one of Cole’s restaurants IRL — Slutty Vegan, so far, has several locations throughout Georgia and some to come in Alabama and New York City — soon, you can enjoy her ingenious recipes in the comfort of your own kitchen. 

Cole’s releasing her first cookbook, Eat Plants, B*tch: 91 Vegan Recipes That Will Blow Your Meat-Loving Mind. The recipe collection doesn’t officially release until November 15, 2022, but you can preorder now, wherever you buy books. 

While a full list of recipes is not quite available, it is said that those interested in picking up the book can expect recipes like her Avocado Egg Rolls, Black Pea Cauliflower Po’​Boy , and the Oyster Mushroom Parm to make star appearances. The debut cookbooks will also include words from singer and actress Patti LaBelle and NBA star Chris Paul, who partnered up with Slutty Vegan to offer free burgers in Atlanta on Juneteenth last year. 

Can’t wait until November for your copy to arrive? Try your hand at these BBQ-friendly grilled portobello burgers or these fan-favorite vegan sweet potato coconut biscuits to hold you over.
