    4 egg whites
    1 cup (250 mL) sugar
    4 cups (1 L) fresh raspberries, picked yourself if possible, cleaned
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) fresh mint, chopped
    Butter, just enough to coat a pan

    Preheat broiler. Very lightly butter a heatproof 9 x 11 in (23 x 28 cm) serving pan or platter.

    Whip egg whites on medium speed until frothy. Increase speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue whipping to form stiff peaks. Do not overwhip. Fold in mint and raspberries. Pour into serving platter and spread out to 1 in (2.5 cm) thick.

    Carefully brown under broiler for 1 to 3 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning. Serve immediately.

    Serves 6.

    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.
