Sing from the Heart singing and meditation retreat at De Tout Coeur Limousin

Bon voyage and au revoir to our beautiful retreat guests. We shared a wonderful sunny spring singing and meditation retreat week here at De Tout Coeur Limousin. A special week filled with open hearts, finding voices, connection, growth, spirit, love, laughter and friendship. Thank you. 

It is a privilege to be able to provide the space and share the work we do with others. Facilitating the potential we all have for healing and connection - to creativity, wellbeing, our voice, ourselves, each other, our breath...


"We will call this place our home

the dirt in which our roots may grow.
though the storms will push and pull
we will call this place our home.
we'll tell our stories on these walls.
every year, measure how tall.
and just like a work of art
we'll tell our stories on these walls.
let the years we're here be kind, be kind.
let our hearts, like doors, open wide, open wide.
settle our bones like wood over time, over time.
give us bread, give us salt, give us wine.
a little broken, a little new.
we are the impact and the glue.
capable more than we know
to call this fixer upper home.
with each year, our color fades.
slowly, our paint chips away.
but we will find the strength
and the nerve it takes
to repaint and repaint and repaint every day"

Sri Lankan dry fry greens with coconut and chilli 

Sri Lankan dry fry greens with coconut and chilli 


This recipe is packed full of flavour, spice, brights colours and healthy dark leafy greens - perfect for these cold winter days. This Sri Lankan dry fry greens with coconut and chilli was shared with us by our friend Roshan and we couldn't wait to try it. We served it with turmeric rice, and it would be great alongside a simple vegetable curry or dahl too, or as a spicy vegetable side dish. This recipe is super quick and simple to make too. Happy cooking.  

serves enough for 2-3 people as a vegetable side dish

ingredients

1/2 tsp black mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 small onion - finely chopped
6 cashews halved
2 cups greens finely shredded (e.g. Kale, spinach, savoy cabbage, spring greens) 
1 tsp turmeric powder 
2 tbsp desiccated coconut 
2 chillies (or to taste) 
salt to taste 
1 tbsp coconut oil 

optional garnish: 
fresh chopped red chilli and toasted desiccated coconut

method 


add the cumin and black mustard seeds to a hot pan and dry fry until they start to pop, then add the coconut oil and fry the onion. Add the chopped chillies and cashews and fry until the onion is transparent.  

Add the finely shredded greens and turmeric and cook gently until the greens begin to wilt. Add a very small amount of water if necessary. Add the desiccated coconut, salt to taste and continue to cook until the coconut is toasted and the greens are softened.  

Serve the Sri Lankan dry fried greens with rice and dahl or as a vegetable side dish. Bon appetit!
