Making Mediterranean stuffed chicken:

-Lay out your flattened chicken breasts (or turkey) on an oiled baking sheet, giving them a slight overlap, and spread with sundried tomato pesto mixed with crushed garlic and a little finely diced red chilli.
-Prepare your stuffing ingredients. I used spinach, diced mushrooms and diced red peppers then added some seasoning.
-Carefully roll up your chicken and sprinkle the top of the roll with oregano.
-Bake in a preheated oven at 200 Celcius for about 30 mins, or until the chicken is cooked through and the veggies are tender.
-Slice the roll carefully and serve the pieces arranged so you can see the pretty vegetables in the middle.

The Best Vegan Hot Cocoa

(My recipe, my picture)

Is there anything better than a hot chocolate on a cold winter night? I don’t think so. This recipe is vegan and super easy to make, plus it will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth! 

The Best Vegan Hot Cocoa

2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

¼-1/3 cup of white sugar (depending on how sweet you want it to be)

1 ¾ cup oat milk

¼ cup oat milk (to be used separately from other milk)

Cardamon to taste

Directions

Stir together the sugar and the cocoa powder in a pan. Add ¼ cup of the oat milk, and apply heat to the pan to bring the mixture to a low boil stirring constantly. 

Let the mixture boil for a couple of minutes (keep stirring) and then add the rest of the oat milk.

Finish off with a bit of cardamon if you feel like making the chocolate taste more of christmas!
