DALLAS (KDAF) — There’s nothing better than a plate full of comfort, and no type of food can do that better than soul food. June is National Soul Food Month and you deserve a plate, or two or 10.

NationalToday says, “Food mirrors its history. Soul food, for example, is a cuisine steeped in tradition. It began in the humble kitchens of African-American slaves as a one-pot meal cooked on a shelf over the fireplace. They had little to cook with, but they had memories of their home and love for their family. And the food reflects that. To remind us of this rich culinary tradition, the Culinary Historians of Chicago created National Soul Food Month in June. So while we enjoy these delicious foods, let’s not forget the history.”
