Employ this golden root vegetable and the last of the garden’s fresh dill (or use dried) for a savoury grain tart. Try a slice warm with a poached egg or with goat cheese crumbled on top, or chilled, plain, to accompany a soup or salad at lunch tomorrow.
Store loose beets (without greens) in a dark, cool place or in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator for up to 2 months. If you have a root cellar, that’s even better.
Give this tart Moroccan flair by substituting dill with chopped parsley and adding a hint of cumin and cinnamon.
In medium saucepan, bring stock and millet to a boil, reduce to simmer, cover, and cook for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and steam, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork and add to large bowl. Cool for at least 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Line 8 to 10 in (20 to 26 cm) removable bottom tart tin or springform pan with a round of parchment on the bottom. Grease parchment and sides of pan with oil.
Add chickpeas to food processor and pureu0301e until thick paste forms. Stir into millet along with beet pureu0301e, dill, eggs, lemon zest, salt, oregano, and nutmeg. Stir in flour and mix until combined. Transfer to prepared pan and smooth top. Place on large rimmed baking sheet and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until firm and beginning to brown around edges. Run knife around edge of tart and remove to large serving plate; discard parchment. Slice and serve with drizzle of balsamic and a few sprouts on top. Enjoy warm, at room temperature, or chilled.

Treat yourself to a steak dinner, using tofu instead of meat. The tangy chili-spiked marinade does double-duty as a finishing sauce and transforms otherwise bland tofu into a dish that’ll sound your taste buds’ fire alarm. Bird’s eye pepper would be a good substitute for habanero if needed. Dousing the fire If you find yourself with a mouth on fire after taking a bite of a chili-infused dish, don’t try to douse it with water. Instead, reach for a glass of milk. The protein casein in dairy is known to help subdue the flame. Water won’t help nearly as much.
Ice cream cakes and/or cookies are everyone’s favourite. And here’s a great option for a delicious “Dad’s” cookie cake that’s gluten free! A simple-to-make cookie cake that’s made even easier when the dough is tossed together in a food processor. End a delicious Dad’s Day meal with this deliciously cool and creamy sweet dessert. Best beer? Extra yum when served with small glasses of chocolate-flavoured stout or porter. When Dad loves his cookies We made this delicious dessert into a cake, but it can easily be made into individual ice cream cookies. Roll out dough into 1/4 in (6 mm) thickness and cut into 2 in (5 cm) rounds. Bake, cool, and chill. Once chilled, spoon ice cream in between chilled cookies. Freeze until firm. Drizzle with melted chocolate or dip into melted chocolate.
Coffee-flavoured BBQ sauce? Why not? It’s a strikingly flavourful combo—sweet, tangy, bold, and rich. It can be used not only on pork but on a variety of other meats. We marinated tenderloin in it and doubled up on the smoky flavour by grilling it on a cedar plank. Serve with a side order of grilled broccolini for extra yum. Best beer? You can’t go wrong with an IPA or a honey lager to complement this flavourful dish. Looking for an easy way to grill broccolini? Toss with a little oil and season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes. Near the end of grilling, place broccolini beside plank with tenderloin on hot grill for about 6 or 7 minutes. Using tongs, turn a few times until tender and lightly charred. Place on platter with sliced pork and drizzle with lemon juice and some shaved Parmesan.
If there’s a vegan or vegetarian in the crowd, then this dish will be sure to please. Chock full of complementary textures and flavours, it not only qualifies as eye candy, but is also a substantial stand-alone meal—a stunning meal in a dish! Best beer? Serve this salad with an IPA or pale ale. For a more adventurous sip, it’s equally delicious with a Belgian pale or dark ale. Endlessly customizable When it comes to this powerhouse salad, the sky’s the limit. Swap out apples with orange wedges, or mix up your greens by substituting spinach for endive. Bump up the protein with some canned chickpeas or black beans, if you wish. Or cut up some corn tortillas into bite-sized strips, fry in pan until crisp, then toss over salad for added crunch.
