Rita Heikenfeld’s Vegetable Curry with Chickpeas

Olive oil
1 heaping cup diced peeled sweet potato
1 heaping cup small cauliflower florets (I used butternut squash)
1/4 to 1/2 cup thinly sliced yellow onion
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 cup vegetable broth (or water)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 can, 14.5 oz. diced tomatoes, undrained
Couple handfuls spinach (my addition)
Cilantro (I didn’t have any)
Rice (optional)

Film a large nonstick skillet with oil over medium heat.
Add potatoes and cauliflower (or in my case squash) and cook until crisp tender, about 3 minutes.
Add onion and curry powder and cook until onions start to turn translucent, a couple of minutes.
Add broth, chickpeas and tomatoes and cook until everything is tender.
Add spinach if using and cook until barely wilted.
Season to taste. Serve over rice.
Serve with dollop of yogurt and cilantro


Charles de Foucald’s Prayer of Abandonment

Father, I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.

Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures –
I wish no more than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father. Amen.
