A huge focus of what we do in real life at all of our Soul & Surf locations is food. From day one we've had a strong ethos around bringing people together over plates of hearty, nourishing, delicious food. We call it Sunshine Food. The stuff that makes your body feel great, and keeps you coming back for seconds..and thirds.

Right now, feeding ourselves well is probably more important than ever, for our brains as well as our bodies. But, if you're anything like us, it just might be getting to that point in lockdown where you're subsisting on crisp sandwiches and gin & tonics. (Just a guess..)
Since our kitchens around the world are currently unable to operate, we wanted to help you bring a slice of Sunshine Food into your own kitchens at home. So we've decided to use our Journal to share a handful of our favourite recipes.
This first one is a classic from our Sri Lanka retreat: coconut roti with smashed avocado and onion chutney. A local dish (roti is a Sri Lankan bread and an absolute staple, usually eaten with chutney for breakfast or served with curries) with a Western twist.
We love making this, and we love eating it even more. Hope you enjoy x

You're done - enjoy! FYI the onion chutney can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Also this goes pretty well with a fried egg served on top, if that's your thing.
