    2 cups (500 mL) zucchini, cut french-fry style
    2 cups (500 mL) eggplant, cut french-fry style
    2 cups (500 mL) new potatoes, cut into chunky quarters

    Preheat grill to 350 F (180 C). Place the vegetable pieces directly on the barbecue.

Meanwhile, mix together the olive oil, salt, garlic, and chopped herbs in a large bowl. Add grilled veggies and marinate 5 minutes. Serve warm. 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.
