I receive complimentary digital copies of Vegan Life, which allows me to post reviews with screenshots included. My reflections on the magazine are entirely my own.
The cover for this month features an impressive autumn and Halloween themed triple chocolate cheesecake. I love the candied nuts decorating the top and the drizzle of chocolate down the sides, even as I know I'm unlikely to manage either myself!
Another set of appealing recipes comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's new book. The carrot cake pancakes look delicious and I love the idea for strawberries and (coconut) cream bread pudding.
I was interested to read in the Vegan News section that there are plans for a frozen banana soft serve (nice cream) bar. It's still in the proposal and fund raising stage but struck me as a good idea, although there is a limit to how much I'd pay for something I can make so easily at home.
Looking back to September, there was a timely article on raising vegan children. As Mr Bite is not vegan it is unlikely Mini Bite would ever be fully so, but in time we will have to decide how much we shape her diet to be vegan / vegetarian.
As it is, I didn't find the article added much to pieces I've read before (the crux of the message was "it is possible to raise healthy vegan children") but it was worth reading nonetheless. Also worth reading were the below chocolate-themed recipes. The chocolate chilli with cornbread holds particular appeal, even as I know it would never be welcomed by Mr Bite!
I would love to try the new Fry's quinoa and coriander falafel burger featured below, and whilst frozen pizza doesn't hold much appeal, I was interested to see the frozen vegan option now sold by Ocado (bottom left). Has anyone tried either?
The Accidental Vegan page showed some things I have tried, namely the Ritter dark chocolate marzipan blocks (which I love) and Waitrose Moroccan houmous (good but not great). I will also now remember that Tesco's woodland fruit strudel is vegan.
Last but not least, if you want some more raw noodle inspiration before cold weather really sets in (or if you are welcoming warmer weather in the southern hemisphere), this recipe for Thai carrot noodles looks delicious.
