A family that I ate with on my mission would make this garlic rice that I died over every time! They make it a lot in brazil…so I guess it’s not Indian to go with this dish but you can add garlic to about anything right? The recipe for this delicious garlic rice will be coming soon!!

Cherry Ice cream

photo 1

It might be tricky to make this now because cherries aren’t in season….. but if you are able to get your hands on some:) Or you might just have to wait till next season!

Using this dairy free vanilla ice cream as your base, cut up cherries into halves or quarters and mix them into your churned ice cream before placing it in the freezer to harden.

** Note: the ice cream doesn’t harden completely!

1 c cherry tomatoes

1 bag of spinach
