    1. Rinse and drain tofu. Place in blender, food processor, or cup of immersion blender. Add oil, miso, mustard, salt, syrup, and 1 Tbsp lemon juice. Whirl mixture, scraping down sides of bowl or cup until tofu is creamy and smooth. Taste, then add more lemon juice and seasonings if you wish. Add a splash of water if you’d like a thinner consistency. Mayonnaise can be stored in tightly covered container in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
    2. Bring pan of water to a boil. Remove from heat. Add cabbage to hot water and immediately drain in sieve and then plunge into ice water. You want cabbage to be brightly colored but still crisp. Shake well, then spin in salad spinner. Add to large serving platter and top with grated carrots, sliced endive, toasted nuts, and dried fruit. Drizzle with tofu mayo and serve

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
