Being told you’re appreciated is one of the simplest and most uplifting things. —Sue Fitzmaurice

chocolate almond truffles

If you liked my recent recipe for chocolate almond cookies, then you will surely like this one as well. It’s very similar; still easy and delicious, still vegan, almost refined sugar-free, but instead of baking and making cookies, we’re making truffles.

They tried to bury us, they didn’t know we were seeds.  —Mexican Proverb

Growing up, there was no food that I didn’t like more than green mung bean curry. I won’t even mention, here on a food blog, what I thought it looked like. But, take those same mung beans and let them sprout and then make a curry, magically, the result would be my favourite food.
