Think about Southern cooking: you're probably picturing fried chicken, barbecued ribs, and greens that play a supporting role to bacon. By recasting vegetables as the headlining act in their new book, The Southern Vegetarian: 100 Down-Home Recipes For The Modern Table, Mississippi natives Justin Fox Burks and his wife, Amy Lawrence, prove that the region's culinary roots start in the garden.
