a earthy clay bowl filled with curry, yogurt and flat bread


As the holidays are behind us and the coldest days upon us, does anything sound better than a warm bowl of hearty curry?  It’s such a versatile and nourishing meal both to the body and the soul.  We are grateful to Viola of The Sunshine Eatery for sharing not only her comfort curry ‘how-to’ video with us but also her dumplings and vanilla crescents.  We recently spoke with her on our podcast (listen here) and were blown away by her sunny and sweet disposition.  She tells us how The Sunshine Eatery came to be and all things that inspire her.  Her positivity for life shines through both in her calming YouTube videos and this interview.  Listen in and Get to Know Viola.



If you are just discovering The Sunshine Eatery, you’re about to fall in love.  Viola’s short videos transport you to a dreamy and peaceful place while inspiring you to cook delicious food.  We’re completely enamored with her choice in music, the sound of her sweet voice, and the way she produces her clips.  This curry recipe is vegan made with red lentils but is completely versatile so feel free to add or swap for a different protein.



In this video, Viola prepares her family recipe for Chinese Dumplings.  There is something so heartwarming about watching her mother’s hands pick and mince chives grown in her garden.  We find ourselves desiring of an afternoon visit and shared meal.



Finally, Viola prepares Vanilla Crescent cookies which are a traditional German holiday cookie called Vanillekipferl.  Made with almond flour, spelt flour, and lots of vanilla, they’re a true earthy treat.  We won’t be waiting for the holidays to make a batch of these to dunk in our morning coffee.  Enjoy!
