Leftovers taste even better when eaten for lunch the next day!
Notes from Sam: I skip the step where it says to brush the rolled tortillas with oil before going into the oven, and they still come out very crispy.
Dried chickpeas can be purchased loose and in bulk from a bulk store or bulk section of your supermarket and you can use your own jars and bags. Check out some of the stores in the Sea to Sky, Vancouver area and more here.
Plant-based milks can be pre-ordered and purchased from The Velvet Underground (just across the road from Green Mo-Function Junction!) and come in re-usable glass bottles, or even better, bring your own container for them to transfer the milk into Shop Velvet Cafe
If you’re interested in making your own oat, soy or nut milks, there are recipes galore online, or you can check out Velvet Underground's YouTube video here.

Another great way to ensure you're using seasonal produce is to subscribe to a CSA Box with a local farm and structure your meals around the seasonal produce you've received that week!
If you can't buy a locally grown fruit or vegetable, it's better to buy such produce when it is in season in the country it's imported from. So for example, if you're buying avocados from Mexico, it is good to know that their peak growing season lasts from November til April, whereas avocados grown in California (closer to us and less food km's) have their peak season between May and August.
