    Place asparagus spears on grill at right angles so they won’t fall through. Grill over medium heat for 2 minutes on one side. Roll over and continue grilling for another 2 minutes, or until you reach the level of doneness you prefer.

    Remove from barbecue. Whisk together lime juice and oil, sprinkle on cooked asparagus, and serve.

    Serves 4.

    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.
