Pure Intention : Listen

Simple and effortless

I don’t know what the weather has been like where you are, but here in Wakefield, Quebec, it’s been a tad on the wet and chilly side.

Today the sun is shining and thankfully, this lovely weather is supposed to continue for the next few days. I plan on taking full advantage. There is a little over a week left in my 21 day challenge and although I hate to admit it, it would appear that I have run out of steam! There’s still so much that I want to share about what I consider to be essential ingredients to restoration and recovery, but hey ….why rush ? .

If there’s one thing I’ve learned this past while, it is to know thyself.

When the body speaks, it’s in your best interest to listen.

For the next few days I will keep things simple and share some recipes of my own creation.

Enjoy !


Who cares if it’s almost the middle of June. Last Friday was wet and miserable so I whipped together this incredibly tasty curry with whatever I could find in the fridge.

2 TBS Ghee or olive oil ( I used Ghee – adds a nice flavour )

1 chopped onion

6 garlic cloves crushed

chili flakes to taste

1 tsp Black salt ( not many people have this so sea salt will do!)

Pepper to taste

1 tsp Black cumin ( not many people have this either so regular cumin will do !)

curry paste to taste

1 TBS grated ginger

1TBS grated turmeric or 1 tsp ground

1 28 oz can diced tomatoes

3 cups veggie broth ( low sodium )

1 medium cauliflower chopped into small pieces

1 medium sweet potato chopped into small pieces

2 small golden beets chopped

1 can chickpeas ( rinsed ) or a half cup of red lentils would also work

1 can coconut milk

Juice of one lime

4 handfuls of greens ( I used sweet pea greens – delicious :))


Cilantro chopped

Mango chopped

Step 1 Heat large pot to medium and cook onions in ghee for 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, turmeric, chilli flakes, cumin, salt, pepper, and curry paste and cook another 5 minutes.

Step 2 Add chopped cauliflower, sweet potatoes , beets and chickpeas, coating them with the spices and stirring for a few minutes.

Step 3 Add diced tomatoes, veggie bouillon and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 25-30 minutes until veggies are soft. Beets can take awhile !

Step 4 Add coconut milk , lime and greens . Remove from heat and let sit for at least a half hour to let the flavours work together and do their thing.

I love to serve this over brown rice but it’s also good on its own.

Top with cashews, cilantro and fresh mango.

Naan bread is also nummy with this 🙂

Feeling ambitious ?

Make your own ! I love this recipe 🙂

    1. Apparently it’s full of antioxidants and low in sodium 🙂
      I bought some when I went to Hawaii way back when and had forgotten I had it 🙂
      This was by far the best curry I have ever made. Soooooo much flavour !!


  1. It sounds absolutely delicious!
    And there is a lot of basic ingredients to add good vegetables.
    Je vais l’essayer. Simple et savoureux .
    Thanks :))
