    Citrus and Pomegranate Parfaits with Pink Peppercorns

    Pink peppercorns don’t have the same gutsy punch as common black peppercorns. Their floral aroma and soft texture are ideal for sophisticated (yet easy) desserts.

    2 cups (500 mL) plain yogurt 
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) honey 
    1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract 
    1 orange, peeled and cubed or segmented 
    1 grapefruit, peeled and cubed or segmented

    2 Tbsp (30 mL) pink peppercorns, lightly crushed, divided
    In medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, honey, and vanilla.

    To assemble parfaits, select 4 medium-sized clear glasses or jars. Add 1/4 cup yogurt mixture to the bottom of each glass. Divide half of the orange, grapefruit, and pomegranate among the 4 glasses. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp (15 mL) peppercorns. Repeat with remaining yogurt mixture, followed by remaining fruit and final 1 Tbsp (15 mL) peppercorns. Serve chilled.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
