Grab a plate and pull up your chair because we’re ready to share some fabulous soul food recipes! Soul food is the delicious combination of foods with origins in the rural south. The term “soul food” has been around since the 1960s and grew in popularity starting in the 1970s. These yummy dishes normally involve homecooked recipes with staples including fried chicken, pork, cornbread, beans and collard greens. Sweet tea and tasty desserts like cobblers are normally on the menu as well. One thing is for sure: There’s nothing better than sitting down at the dinner table and eating a delicious homecooked soul food-inspired meal.



Our Publix Aprons team has done a great job utilizing the traditional elements found in soul food recipes. Not only are these dishes delicious, but they’re great for the cooler weather. We’ve gathered some of our favorites to give you a taste of what soul food is all about.
