Coconut squash soup with lentils

October has been a bit of a topsy turvy month, but there has been a definite chill in the air of late, which means time to bring out the hot chocolate again. At the start of the year, I had the most amazing, rich and vegan friendly hot chocolate at Dark Sugars down Brick Lane […]
