Astonishingly fabulous chocolate cake

this is the BEST chocolate cake I have ever had…and best of all its VEGAN. I’m not sure if I’m going to share the recipe for this little gem, but I will take orders for them.

Served with a berry syrup or a coulis, or just fresh berries and a dollop of coconut yoghurt….oh-em-gee

I heart plants

When I look at this picture it makes me feel good. The colours of the fruits and vegetables jump right off the page at you.

When I see that green capsicum, I’m reminded of when I was a small child and my Yia-Yia (thats Greek for Grandmother) grew them in our backyard veggie patch. We would pick them right out of the garden and eat them raw and crunchy. Oh so juicy and sweet.

My grandmother grew up in Asia Minor. She was from a family who grew everything, so we did grow up on a diet of all vegetables in season, as well as (gulp) eating all parts of animals. She would never understand what a vegetarian was let alone a vegan!

Back to those lovely fruit and veggies….why not make yourself a delicious imgres

why not try getting one of those beautiful big red or green capsicums from your fruit shop and core it, stuff it with rice, onions and fresh tomatoes and a dessertspoon full of nutritional yeast, bake for 35 mins and eat with a crunchy kale and  shaved fennel salad. Delish!
