Whether you need cookies, sea moss, or skincare, this list has it all!
Between Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and International Women’s Day, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate Black women. Here are eight Black women-owned vegan businesses to support that ship nationwide.
Southern Roots Vegan Bakery has quickly made a name for itself as one of the best vegan bakeries in the US. Wife-and-husband team of Cara and Marcus Pitts started the vegan business in San Antonio and quickly expanded to offer nationwide shipping due to the high demand for their products. Southern Roots makes donuts, cookies, cakes, and pies, with options for corporate dessert bundles and a donut-of-the-month subscription club.
Maya’s Cookies was founded in San Diego by Maya Madsen in 2015 and has since grown to become everyone’s favorite online cookie shop. This vegan business has perfected every cookie flavor in the book and is known for its creative holiday and special-edition flavors. Maya’s Cookies offers a monthly subscription box as well as cookie bundles if you want to try them all!
This Georgia-based kombucha company was founded by Kemiko Lawrence, a teacher, yoga instructor, and entrepreneur whose goal is to provide people with access to the benefits of fermented beverages. Kemboocha makes a variety of kombucha flavors, including blueberry-acai, cucumber-ginger-sage, and mango-pineapple-turmeric. In addition, this vegan business makes a Fire Cider—a fermented beverage made with apple cider vinegar, horseradish, turmeric, and habanero—to help keep your immune system up.
The Alkaline Electric Goddess—aka Ellise Nikki Johnson—is a vegan chef that offers catering, food prep, and a small online store filled with alkaline foods. After healing her lupus with an alkaline diet, Johnson has made it her mission to make alkaline foods available to everyone. Her online shop that ships nationwide offers sea moss gel, elderberry syrup, and smoothies.
103 Collection is an online beauty shop specializing in plant-based, sustainable, and affordable skincare products for all skin types.

Everything this vegan business sells is always 100% cruelty-free.
Tubby’s Taste is the vegan business you need if you’re looking for cookie flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Founder Danielle Tubbs utilizes flavors from her upbringing in Miami and her Jamaican roots to create cookies with island-inspired flavors, such as Caribbean Punch and Island Spice. Each flavor is placed on a scale of soft-baked to crispy, so you can find the perfect flavor and texture that you’re looking for. Tubby’s Taste offers a subscription club that is customizable to how many cookies you’d like per month.
Leuna Botanicals is a vegan skincare company made for all skin types. Founder Barbara Nartey-Affaine started this vegan business after an endless search trying to find a gentler body cleanser for her family’s sensitive skin. She founded Leuna Botanicals, and the brand now makes face oils, body soaps and scrubs, moisturizers, and gift sets.
1987 Juices is a mobile juice shop based out of Los Angeles that offers delivery, pickup, and nationwide shipping.

Whether you’re looking for a green juice with a kick, charcoal lemonade, or sweet juices made with spirulina and turmeric, 1987 juices has it all.
Cayla is an event planner, copywriter, catering manager, and vegan foodie. If she’s not working, she’s probably catching one of her favorite composers in concert, riding her bike to the movies, watching a gorgeous sunset at the bluff in Long Beach, or convincing her girlfriend to go out to eat at another vegan restaurant … again.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe
Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
