Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese Bruschetta drizzled with Manuka 🍯 and a few other small bites (swipe right para más) inspired by the new @sheamoisture bath & body line Manuka Honey & Yogurt — this was for their launch gathering and cooking for it was so much fun! They held it at a beautiful kitchen that I want to cook in forever 😍 Met a few dope and really sweet WOC beauty influencers in real life, including @ohhthatsjustflash 🌟 Thanks @iamdinorah for entrusting @wokefoods 💚🌱 #SheaMoisture #WokeFoods #wocsupportingwoc
Thank you @thecofed for including our founder @ysanetbatista in this inspiring #blackhistorymonth collage! We are honored to be included alongside many of our personal #foodjustice heroes - many of who started the groundwork that makes our work possible today 🙏🏾🙏🏿 .
.
This Black History Month we want to remember that improving our food system is impossible without racial justice! Our food system in the US is founded upon principles of slavery, exploitation, and servitude - it still takes advantage of the most vulnerable populations - most notably black and brown undocumented immigrants. We hope to continue working in solidarity with our #foodjustice & #foodsovereignty heroes and comrades for a more sustainable, accessible, and ethical #foodsystem

#Mangu is arguably the dish people most strongly associate with Dominican cuisine - but did you know that this dish has strong roots in West Africa and Central Africa? .

This plant-based dish has strong ties to Fufu, a West African dish common in Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia, among other places. .

While Mangú in the DR is typically composed of boiled and mashed green plantains, Fufu in West #Africa commonly uses green plantain and yuca. However, the technique of boiling and mashing plantains is thought to have originated in the #Congo region of Central Africa. .

Similar dishes can be found throughout the #Caribbean - including #mofongo in #PuertoRico (fried and mashed plantains) and #Fufu (!) in #Cuba (boiled and mashed plantains) .

Delicious-looking tostones and wonderful initiative by @wokefoods!👇👇⠀

#Repost @wokefoods: ⠀
Today is the beginning of #blackhistorymonth! We’re excited to celebrate by highlighting the #African influence in #AfroCaribbean cuisine!⠀

Last month we hosted a cooking class where we made recipes influenced by the West and Central African people who made #Dominican cuisine what it is today. ⠀
We made tostones - staple in Dominican and many other Latinx countries. Not only did plantains come to the Caribbean by way of West Africa, but the double frying technique used to make this crunchy favorite was created by enslaved people once they arrived to the Caribbean as way to preserve cooked Plantain and eat it for longer than 1 day. In addition to double frying, Enslaved West and Central Africans created many other food preservation techniques like salting, smoking, and more. .⠀

We also made #sancocho, another popular dish in Dominican cuisine. This hearty stew uses many root vegetables that are native to the African continent, like plantains, ñame, and yautia. The stew also originated in the #canaryislands, off the coast of Northwest Africa .⠀

We had a great time hosting this class because it’s important to know the stories of our foods. We are excited to have more conversations that celebrate the African roots of #Dominican and #afrocaribbean cuisine! .⠀

What is the best part of our cooking classes, aside from sharing the meal at the end? Interactive learning! We learn not just by seeing but by doing too - after all we’re here to help YOU learn how to cook plant based meals, whatever your experience level may be.
Our theme for January is #holisticeating .

Holistic eating does not only mean nutritious and diverse plant based meals, but it also has to do with sourcing our meals ethically to the best of our ability, eating mindfully and with gratitude, and ALSO being involved in the cooking process. We believe that cooking is essential to developing a connection to our bodies, our culture, plants, and our ancestors. That is why cooking classes are integral to what we offer.
.
We’ll be posting more info on some upcoming cooking classes soon, but if you are ever interested in private classes or if your organization is interested in a group class, DM us! Or visit our website for more info.

The past few days at Woke Foods have been a beautiful reminder of why we do this work. We had our first cooking class of the year on Friday where we were able to share the African roots of Afro-Caribbean cuisine and be in community with those who are curious about a plant-based lifestyle - and our founder @ysanetbatista was featured in @forbes magazine, where she spread the gospel of Woke Foods' socially conscious goals as a worker co-op that's determined to contribute to a more ethical food system, from seed to plate. .

😭🙏🏾 I came home tonight from teaching a dope cooking class feeling so grateful and was also super exhausted because it’s been 12 hour work days these past few days. So seeing this FORBES article was such a nice surprise to finish today and motivate me as I start a two day training this weekend on cooperative leadership. It’s on and popping! Thank you to everyone who supports me. I am because you are. #completion2019 #theplantedseedsaregrowing #imakeepwateringmyseeds #dominicanchef #socialentrepreneur #wokefoods #forbes
There are a couple of tickets left for tonight’s cooking class, which will focus on plant based Dominican recipes with West/Central African roots. Tickets are $45, available on eventbrite. Link in bio! .

Pictured is our sancocho from the Big Bronx Sancochazo last summer. Did you know that sancocho has West African roots? Sancocho is thought to have roots in the Canary Islands, an archipelago off the coast of West Africa. Also - the plantains that we use in sancocho came to the Caribbean/Latin America by way of West Africa! .

We hope you can join us tonight to learn more about this rich and complex history of #afrocaribbean cuisine.

Happy New Year to all! We are so grateful for everyone’s support this year - you’ve all helped our vision grow and we’re so excited for what we have planned this year .

We want to offer you this recipe for the new year - as it’s a time when many of us are thinking about healthier diets, cooking more, and maybe even becoming vegan! .

Sofrito is a very simple and common ingredient found in many afro-caribbean recipes from arroz con gandules to sancocho. It makes a lovely bright addition to any vegan meal. Store bought sofrito often contains unhealthy preservatives and dyes, and sometimes even pork flavoring 😖 However our sofrito is 100% vegan and delicious! 🥰🌿
.

All you have to do is chop and blend the ingredients listed (or grind them by hand in a mortar and pestle) and you are good to go with a healthy and flavorful base for almost any meal! .

At Woke Foods, we have an AMAZING vegan cheese recipe that we use in many of our recipes, from lasagna to pastelon.
.
Why cashews? Because they have a naturally creamy texture, and rich and nutty flavor, that imitates ricotta and marscapone, along with cream cheese - depending on how much water is added.

We had so much fun at our holiday cooking class this weekend making two versions of vegan Pastelon de Plátano Maduro, Jalea de Batata Dulce with Toasted Coconut Flakes, among other dishes. Rethinking our diets to be more plant based does not mean having to give up our cultural traditions, even during the holidays. Often, we simply have to look at where we come from to decolonize how we eat. Grateful to nourish each other with platanos, batata, and other Caribbean foods! Check out our Classes IG highlights for a recap 😊

The Bronx Cooperative Development Initiative (BCDI) is a community-led effort to build an equitable, sustainable, and democratic local economy that creates wealth and ownership for low-income people of color—what we call economic democracy.  One of their projects, The BronXchange, is a marketplace that connects Bronx institutions and nonprofit organizations with high-road, local businesses—making it easy for institutions to support local economic development and for businesses to grow.  By supporting new and existing businesses, and moving them in the direction of more democratic ownership and operations, the BronXchange leverages the impressive buying power of our local anchor community and the entrepreneurial talent of our business community to build local wealth.  Here, we’ve featured a few such business, such as Il Forno, based out of the Hunts Point section of the Bronx.  Il Forno provides artisanal, tasty and healthy bread to the Bronx community!  Swipe left to meet Woke Foods.  Ysanet and Marelis, pictured here, source their ingredients locally from Bronx suppliers to provide Dominican inspired vegan and vegetarian catering services.  Last but not least, we take a look into the world of Soul Snacks. At the core of this specialty snack company are locally hired Bronx residents to produce all-natural snacks out of the Port Morris area in the South Bronx.  To learn move about BronXChange and BCDI projects, visit their website, link in @bcdi_commonwise bio.  #BCDI #BronXChange #TheNewYorkFoundation #Bronx #Community #Food #Healthy #WokeFoods #IlForno #SoulSnacks #NewYorkCity

so overwhelmed and genuinely feeling so powerful after getting to organize an amazing vegan panel with such inspiring leaders of our communities such as @larazaforliberation @wokefoods @_cilantropia @collectivelyfree and the OG @foodempowermentproject 😭🙌🏽 tonight was so impactful—being in a space to talk about real shit, real struggles, what it means to be a vegan of color in a culture where white veganism can be so harmful, and talk about our journeys and our work together. Tonight was a dream and we are so glad that we get to build and continue to build these spaces to lift each other up, continue to educate our people, and also decolonize our diets. Thank you for everyone that came, so thankful for this beautiful platform and all the support we have received. Lastly, thank you to @iamvivayoung for being such a great host!!!! Thank you @karlarosavargas for collaborating with us and believing in our project—y’all both are truly inspiring and amazing🌿 all the pictures can be found on Facebook, through the Veggie Mijas Page. 🗣🙌🏽 KEEP DOIN THE AMAZING WORK YALL.

Happy Juneteenth! #Juneteenth celebrates the "official" end of slavery on June 19, 1865. African Americans and African people across the diaspora have created the most delicious dishes and cuisines using the foods, both whole and scrap, that were made accessible to them. FOOD IS POLITICAL. #neverforget | Throughout historical and modern slavery, Black people in the Americas have utilized their creativity and resilience as a way of survival. While trauma is present and healing is happening, let's not forget that Black folks are still under systems of oppression and state sanctioned violence. Let's also not forget to give credit for all the foods we get to enjoy today because of Black people. Today in remembrance of #Juneteenth we made smoked collards with @earthbalance butter, onion, and liquid smoke, paired with sazon zucchini, pan fried green plantains, and brown rice. We will be making the smoked collards at the June 29th cooking class and there are a few spots left so register asap. #wokefoods #alimentosconscientes #staywokeaboutyourfood #blackvegans

Soul food
.
Have you seen or heard about this documentary Soul Food Junkies by @byronhurt? It originally aired in 2013 on PBS?
.
I recently had the pleasure of watching it on @kwelitv
.
This is an awesome work by this creator I recommend anyone who loves "soul food"and also who needs maybe another voice about food choices and the possible health consequences and "losing loved ones too soon from a nutrition related illness" to watch it
.
have a conversation with your loved ones and (most importantly) have a honest reflection of your eating choices with yourself...

When your family is down with the vegan life. BBQ'd portabella in basalmic/cumin/coriander sauce, charred corn, dal, lentil rice, sautéed asparagus. Sorry pics aren't "instagram ready". Too busy living life. ♡♡♡♡

It’s not @wokefoods but I am definitely being more mindful of what I am putting in my writers body. Missing you @ysanetbatista 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽😘 #chefstowatch #cheftable #consciousliving #selflove #bonappetit #healthyfood #healthychoices #wokefoods #cocinadominicana #sankofasistercircle #sankofaiv #writerslife #sankofawriters #sankofaretreat
MEET OUR CHEF: I have known Ysanet Batista for many years now and I am so proud of the work she is doing for communities of color. Ysanet is a graduate of the prestigious Johnson & Wales University where she graduated. This weekend she nourished us, dreamt with us and shared her own poetry. Ysa is a chef and the OWNER of her own company @wokefoods 🌿🌿🌿
The WOKE FOODS mission: Awakening the healing traditions of Dominican food. Despertando las tradiciones curativas de la comida dominicana. For the last three years she has blessed us. We are so happy to have her return. #sankofasistercircle #sankofaiv #sankofawriters
ABOUT YSA in her words: ¡Buenas! I am Ysanet and I am a queer Afro-Dominicana, born in Harlem, NY. I was raised in between the Dominican Republic and Hialeah, FL. I spent my childhood in Santo Domingo, DR playing in my grandmother’s garden, then moved to Florida. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI and spent a couple of years working in major hotel companies before transitioning to community based work. Today, I live and work in the Bronx as a nutrition and food justice educator for bilingual middle school students. My passions include holistic cooking, farming, writing, community organizing, and making homemade products. I am inspired by the power and magic of Black and Brown people, the ocean, and the Now. I am currently a student at Farm School NYC earning a certificate in Urban Agriculture.

I love eating Platano Maduros and talking gut health!

She offers catering and classes. Lets support our WOC owned business. @wokefoods #wokefoods
