Tarte au Chocolat

Here’s a lovely little treat……for Valentine.💕

Tbh, this kind of thing is way out of my comfort zone; (give me a bag of beans and a cabbage any day!), as you can see from my pastry skills (or lack of),  but I was inexplicably moved the other day to buy a little set of heart-shaped baking tins, and I definitely had chocolate on my mind…..   maybe it seemed to me that the world needs some love these days, as there appears to be a lot of hate around, and we all can all make space for the occasional chocolate heart…no?! 💚

This tart can be made as one big one, or 4 little ones.

I used ready-made vegan shortcrust pastry, but of course you can use your favourite home-made pastry, and, with a little care, a gluten-free version.

The filling is light and velvety rich and hopelessly delicious.

I hope you enjoy!

Be Someone’s Vegan Valentine. A Three-Course Vegan Menu for 2.

Vegans come in for a quite a lot of stick sometimes, so I thought I’d take a Valentine opportunity to send all vegans out there just a little bit of love.

I’m not always sure why vegans get so much bad press, (although I have my theories…) …because all we’re trying to do…is the right thing….for our own health, for animals, and for the planet.

For everyone and everything.

If you want to show your favourite vegan a little love this valentine…

Won’t break the bank.

Has no ingredients in it that you won’t find in a supermarket.

And won’t involve hours and hours in the kitchen.

So…go ahead…. show a vegan some love …

…or for that matter, show a non-vegan how good vegan food can be…..

…..and cook up a vegan storm…!

Here’s one way to do it….
