Vitasoy has milk in it

Hey guys, I was drinking chocolate vitasoy today when I read the label and noticed wholemilk solids. This is the first time I've noticed whole milk in the ingredients...I'm not sure if this is a new thing or if I just completely missed it somehow every other time I've read the label.

I don't know if other vitasoy products have real milk in them, but I thought I'd post a heads-up about the chocolate stuff so that no one repeats my mistake.

The container looks like this:

edit: It appears that North American Vitasoy is vegan. Vitasoy chocolate soya drink from Hong Kong, however, is not vegan.
...I have no idea about any other countries. Or flavours. The coconut soya milk better still be vegan! *shakes fist*

Curried Carrot and Pear Soup

Curried Carrot and Pear Soup

2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp curry powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups vegetable stock
4 large carrots, coarsely chopped
2 pears, peeled, cored and sliced
1 tbsp packed light brown sugar or other dry sweetener
3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pepper

the recipeCollapse )

This soup is delicious at any temperature: hot, cold or room temperature.
I really like the taste. It is something between tart and sweet. But I think it depends on pears. I didn’t expect that this soup soooooooooooooooo cool!!!
