Paula Deen Goes Vegan

The Queen of Butter has committed to a plant-based lifestyle.

Chicken-fried steak, bacon, egg, and doughnut sandwiches, and deep-fried butter balls will soon get vegan makeovers in Paula Deen’s kitchen. The southern cook, author, and Emmy-award winning television personality has decided to become vegan after penning seven cookbooks, launching her own magazine, Cooking with Paula Deen, and hosting multiple Food Network shows featuring heart-stopping dishes such as Three Meat Pasta and Skillet-Fried Apple Pie. As a part of her new lifestyle, Deen is currently working on a new vegan show as well as recipes for a new vegan southern food cookbook, sure to include lots of Earth Balance butter.
