    The only sure way to ensure a truly vegan burger is to make it yourself - and it's not difficult. Just roughly blend onion, peppers, cooked mixed beans and whatever else you fancy. Main problem is...

    Hi there, Di.
    I couldn't find a health food shop in Paphos in March this year. Do you know of one or two? I found soya milk and soy yogs, etc in the small site shop at Aphrodite Hills :)
