Restaurant worthy, I says. What’s in this? Cauliflower, spinach, tomato, potato, chickpea, onion, and peppers. The sauce is made from coconut milk + cayenne pepper + veg broth + curry powder + brown sugar.

Soups and stews are my comfort food. Chickpeas are a big part of my healing treatment. When Leo makes this chickpea stew, I’m in a happy place. What else is in here? Cilantro topper, onions, green peas, potatoes, lentils, tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers, spinach. Served with a side of roasted brussel sprouts!

If you’ve never had a Chavocado you need to make one right now.
If you’re too lazy to make one but also lucky enough to live in my hometown of Vancouver, then you need to head to Sweet Cherubim and taste in the delight that is the Chavocado.

This could be added to my most favorite-est meal, ever. So I had to re-create it at home.

Skillet or pan

Avocado, 1 sliced
Tomato, off the vine, 1 sliced
Sprouts, sunflower sprouts shown in the picture
Organic Cheese, your preference!

Warm up the skillet on low heat. Place the chapati on the skillet and let it get warm for 2-3 min.
Layer on the cheese, tomato, avocado, and sprouts.
Fold the chapati closed and keep in place with a toothpick.
Let the cheese melt.
Remove the toothpick and flip over to warm up the other side a bit.

Chavocado goodness.
Sweet Cherubim adds a couple more ingredients including a tasty dressing. I’ve yet to figure out a dressing to add to my homemade version, but it tastes fine without, so I’m happy for now. If you have suggestions, let me know!


The boyfriend loves fried rice. You can really make fried rice with anything, so here is a random recipe that I slapped together one afternoon.

tomato, 1 – chopped
onion, 1/4 – chopped
ham, pre cooked, 1/2 cup
rice, cooked (day old is fine!), 1 cup
soy sauce, dark mushroom, 1-2 teaspoons

a pan or skillet or wok

Heat up the pan in between low-med. Chop the tomato, onion and ham into medium sized chunks.
With a bit of oil, cook the ham and onion first and then set them aside in bowls (don’t need to cook all the way through, as you’ll be throwing it back into the pan).

Add the rice to the empty pan and fry for several minutes. Add the soy sauce and stir into the rice.
Create a hole in the middle of the rice and pour a drop or two of oil and place tomatoes in the centre.

Let the tomatoes cook and soften. Add the ham & onion back into the pan and mix altogether.

Serve it hot!
