This is a quickie to make and throw in the oven as you’re gathering gear and getting ready. Or bake ahead and dish up cold. Wrap up like a slice of pizza to go.
1 medium-sized potato, skin on, thinly sliced
2 cups (500 mL) broccoli florets, chopped
2 cups (500 mL) baby spinach
1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano leaves
Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 tsp (5 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup (80 mL) feta cheese, crumbled
Place potato in large, nonstick frying pan with an ovenproof handle and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then simmer until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add broccoli and cook until bright green and tender-crisp, about 2 minutes.
Place spinach in a colander. Drain potatoes and broccoli in colander.
Preheat broiler. Whisk eggs with oregano and season with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in frying pan and set over medium-high heat. Add onion and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in eggs and add potato, broccoli, and spinach. Using a spatula, stir a few times to evenly distribute vegetables. Cook, without stirring, until eggs are well set around edges, about 2 minutes.
Sprinkle with cheese; broil until eggs are set and cheese melts and starts to brown, 4 to 6 minutes.
Cut into wedges and serve.

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.
If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
