I’m back from Costa Rica, people… or well, at least my body is! I definitely left my heart somewhere over there, buried at the foot of some majestic palm tree, right next to a fallen coconut. But as much as I’d have wanted to stay there forever, I had to come back, and even earlier than initially planned.

Truth is, I have been back for almost 2 weeks now, confined at home as is required by law, but it’s been such a strange return that I’ve been in a mixed state of shock and confusion ever since I got home. I don’t quite know what to do with myself. Or what to feed myself, for that matter.

All I can say is that comfort food ranks really high on my list of coveted sustenance. But when circumstances make it kinda hard to even stock the fridge and pantry, one has to keep things simple!

Well, good thing is it doesn’t come much simpler than this uncomplicated Comforting Vegan Stew. It calls for very basic ingredients that we all have at home, at practically any given time.

And it comes together pretty quickly, too! Not that lack of time really is an issue, these days… but hey. Quick is never a bad thing!

Leaves more time for meditating…
