Confession time. We're a team of chocoholics. We devoured all three flavoured bars of vegan Galaxy in record time when they first came out and whenever there's a birthday, chocolate cake is the bake of choice. But we know we're not alone. So we decided it was about time that we celebrated the versatile ingredient in a special chocolate-themed issue. Head to page 12 to find recipes for everything from the mouthwateringly simple ultimate chocolate slice that unashamedly adorns our cover, to chocolate cake with raspberry filling, rich chocolate mousse and fun chocolate bars that will make you feel like a chocolatier when making them. And if the idea of setting up your own chocolate business appeals to you, we have a feature on what you need to consider when making…

eating out with this vegan city

PIPOCA VEGAN Location: 224 Brixton Rd, London SW9 6AH Cuisine: Vegan Crêperie Service: Eat in and takeaway With pretty string lights out front and plants in the windows, Pipoca (‘popcorn’ in Portuguese) promises big before you step over the threshold. When you do you’ll notice the beautiful mini vegan supermarket. We usually head to our seats and soak up the African and Latin music in this slice of botanical heaven. The restaurant menu covers both savoury and sweet crêpes and also has some non-crêpe brunch offerings, which are served all day. The portions are huge, so make sure you go there hungry as you’ll want to squeeze in dessert. On a recent visit we tried the Dhujan crêpe, with grilled Portobello mushrooms, asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes and caramelised onions drizzled with maple and mustard dressing. From…

SEASONAL VEGETABLES Hi everyone! Happy autumn to you! I can feel the chunky knits coming out and I’m kind of liking it. You can’t beat a cosy cardi, a good book and a cuppa; it’s important to continue our self-care rituals throughout the year and this is definitely one of mine. I love this time of year also because of the abundance of delicious root veggies with all their earthy hues and grounding nutrients. I particularly love making soups and freezing the leftovers for a rainy day. With the nights getting slightly longer, this can be quite a good opportunity to make the most of being at home, nurturing and pampering ourselves. I’m not sure how this might work having an 8-month-old baby, but I am a true believer in what goes…

happy carrot skincare

The vegan cosmetics market is increasingly saturated and it’s difficult to stand out. So Vegan Business Tribe’s Lisa spoke with Victoria at Happy Carrot Skincare (HCS) about how she built a successful business. How did HCS start? I was working on a facial balm with carrot extract (now our Incredible Carrot Hero Balm) to help with my adult acne. After using just this balm every day my acne cleared up and I knew I had to share it to help others. I launched HCS just eight months later! How have you made something unique? Using upcycled plant oils sourced from Europe is our way of sourcing great quality ingredients offering fantastic results for your skin as well as reducing our eco footprint. It would be such a waste to throw gorgeous fruit pips away…
