    In skillet over medium heat, melt coconut oil or butter and 2 Tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup. Add oats, nuts, raisins, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon, ginger, and pinch of salt to skillet and heat until oats are toasted, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Be careful not to burn oats. Spread mixture on cutting board to cool. The granola will become crispy upon resting.


    To make stewed rhubarb, in small saucepan combine rhubarb with 2 Tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup, lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon. Cover saucepan and heat over medium-low on camp stove, stirring occasionally, until mixture is bubbling and rhubarb is tender and loses a bit of its colour, about 8 to 12 minutes. Stir in vanilla.


    To serve, divide yogurt among 4 bowls and top with equal amounts of stewed rhubarb and granola. Garnish with mint if desired.

    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.
