Hello Loose shoppers,
Autumn in Stroud has been lighting the trees up with gorgeous colours, and plenty of apples and pears at the farmers' markets.
How about making poached pears with a Raw Olive Oil Chocolate Sauce?
I've been experimenting with other people's recipes and found this one from My New Roots by Sarah Britton.
She mixes equal amounts of olive oil with cacao (try 3 tablespoons each), sweetens with (1.5 tbsp) maple syrup and adds a sprinkle of salt. That’s it.
It tastes amazing on poached pears. Try it?!
You’ll find the best air mile-free olive oil, cacao and salt, at Loose.
Or you could bake my vegan and gluten-free (lower sugar) Ginger and Date Cookies in preparation for Christmas time! Click here to see the video and follow along.
Cookie recipe from my plant-based & gluten-free cookbook Lick Your Plate, now available at Loose!
You’ll find all of the dry ingredients for the cookies at Loose.
Enjoy the fresh cool autumn breeze.
