Healing Turmeric rice with Vegan Chorizo and Avocado Mash

As we get close to the end of the year I dont know about anyone else but I am in need of a break and some healing, it's such a busy time and quite often we get to Christmas day and just feel exhausted. This comfort food is also anti -inflammatory and healing all in the one bowl plus quick and easy to prepare.
