Easy Vegan Soup

With work packed lunches in mind, I made this super simple, one-pot vegan soup one Sunday night and it kept me fed all week. It's got a million veggies in, but you can pick and chose and sub whatever you have in the fridge.

Goji + Pistachio Vegan White Chocolate

I love chocolate. I mean, surely most people do, but I really, really love chocolate. Any kind (apart from mint) and I'm in. I've been making vegan milk and dark chocolate for years, but have always lamented the fact that I seemed unable to create white chocolate of the vegan variety. Until now. I mixed the chocolate with gojis + pistachios for that festive feel, but it's great alone, drizzled over stuff (cookies) or mixed with other combinations such as mulberries, coconut, dates, raisins, nuts... Think fancy fruit and nut.

Festive AF Beet Smoothie

I've been kind of lagging behind on the festive posts this year, probably because I've been too busy making this smoothie literally everyday instead of trying anything new. It's just so good! It's super creamy and smooth and sweet, but it's totally vegan and fruit free. Cooking your veg before freezing them really does make all the difference, so I highly recommend giving it a go if you have the time. I hope you enjoy and happy December!

Fat Ballz

Fat Ballz are all the rage at the moment. They're essentially low sugar bliss balls/ energy balls, tons of good fats, minimal amounts of dates. I only started making them the other day but I'm hooked. They're the perfect snack, smoothie topper, after dinner treat... The list is endless. I was worried they wouldn't stick together without the dates, but I think the coconut butter is key – so don't skip it. It can be hard to find, but it's the easiest thing in the world to make, and failing that you can pick it up online or at most health food stores.

Paleo Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

I'm not usually a pancake breakfast kinda gal, but when I was in Bali, D and I would almost always get a pancake floater at brunch which meant I came back kinda craving them. So I decided to whip some up myself. But of course I couldn't just make regular pancakes – I wanted them to be light, high protein, and super healthy. I actually didn't expect them to turn out quite as well as they did but they're the perfect autumny treat.
