Vegan Comfort Food, More Wedding Planning

Feb 4th POD - Curried ChickPeas with Cashews Mixed with Brown Rice

This recipe comes from the Flat Belly Cookbook. Fabulous recipes in there - haven't found one yet that I haven't liked.

This dish is a particular favourite of mine. It makes my far-from-flat belly very happy when I eat it. Like another chickpea dish I just love - chickpeas with sauteed spinach, tomatoes, onions and lemon zest, over rice. Yum Yum.

I haven't gone vegan or even vegetarian. But I do love to add these dishes to my repertoire. I think I am following what is called a "flexitarian" diet. Doesn't matter what you call me, you can call my tummy happy with this way of eating.

JD and I are really ramping up the wedding planning. We are meeting the wedding coordinator and a photographer tomorrow night. And I have been emailing the City to see if we can arrange to be married out of doors at the Village Park, down by the river. Backup plan (in case of foul weather) is to see if we can book a little country chapel (where my sis got hitched) 10 minutes away, or barring that, get married at the Village Hotel.

Note to self: ask WC about officiants tomorrow night!


  1. Ok, so any chance you can email or or maybe POST this recipe? It does sound good.
    I too am a fan of chickpeas but only make maybe 2 recipes with them (hummus & variations of) of course and this tomato, onion, carrot, garlic chickpea combo you serve over rice or as a veggie stew.....

  2. Hey Fangie

    I will email you the recipe! Won't post it as it's published and copyrighted.
