A Peace of Soul Vegan Kitchen, Columbia, S.C.
Why is it that the unhealthiest foods — for the body and the planet — are the best for soothing the soul? Mac and cheese, barbecue, stewed meats and pork-studded collard greens are classic Southern comfort foods, and they all get a vegan overhaul at A Peace of Soul Vegan Kitchen. The Columbia restaurant offers healthy and nutritious soul food that is 100 percent environmentally friendly and cruelty-free. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant changes its menu daily, serving small and large options with or without protein. One day the assortment might include BBQ “spare ribs,” collards, purple cabbage, mac and “cheese,” red beans, crowder peas, curried potatoes and candied yams. The next day the menu might feature mandarin orange “chicken,” stir-fry cabbage, navy beans or speckled butter beans. No matter the menu, it’s sure to take comfort to a new level.
