When Kellie Asante discovered vegan eating and nutrition, she was captivated, but found one of the biggest hurdles was that the food did not taste like “home”. She decided that there was a need for vegan, Afro-centred restaurants, cooking classes, and products in the Greater Toronto Area — and so Afrobeets was born!
Gearing people up for what’s to come for summer 2018, Kellie will be serving her signature, flavour-packed Chik’n and Waffles. A vegan take on an African/American comfort food staple, Kellie’s chik’n and waffles are a marriage of flavours from vast culinary traditions of Africa and beyond that are 100% plant-based.
