Last week I was asked by VO Food Editor Paul Voykin for permission to repost my recipe for Va-va-voom Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Truffles in an article about the SPCA's upcoming Pawsitively Sweet Vegan Bake Sale at Radha Yoga and Eatery. Of course I was thrilled and flattered, and it occurred to me that participating might be a fun idea. Helping to raise funds for puppies, kittens, bunnies and more at one of my favourite restaurants? Why not?

Pawsitively Sweet Success

Vegan baking is a huge draw for Vancouverites, as was evident from the long, steady lineups for goodies at the bake sale. An impressive crowd of people turned out to enjoy the talents of Vancouver's vegan baking community, whether as a show of support for the SPCA, or just to indulge in delicious, animal-conscious sweets.

Kari Chellouf's Va-Va-Voom Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Truffles.  Click here to learn how to make some for yourself, or as a donation.

On Wednesday, March 9 from 6:30pm until 9:30, Radha Yoga and Eatery at 728 Main Street will be hosting the Pawsitively Sweet Vegan Bake Sale, the proceeds of which will go to benefit the BC SPCA.  All of the 100% vegan baked goods will be generously donated by volunteer bakers, and sold by donation.  The event will also feature a live acoustic performance by electropsych band ARCTIC.

The menu already includes such mouth-watering vegan treats as flourless cashew cookies, raw organic chocolate bon-bons, pistachio rosewater cookies, and pink lemonade cake with vanilla frosting (just to name a few), but the more the merrier, so if you think you've got the vegan baking chops and you'd like to support the BCSPCA by donating to the bake sale, please sign up here
