    Jamaican Ginger Beer Sherbet

    A creamy, smooth silken tofu dessert with a tropical flair, this sherbet is almost as easy to make as it is to eat. An inexpensive manual ice cream maker does an excellent job on this and other homemade frozen delights.

    12 oz (350 g) firm silken tofu
    2 1/2 cups (625 mL) organic Jamaican-style ginger beer (not ginger ale)
    1 cup (250 mL) organic unbleached granulated sugar
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) rum, natural rum extract, or rum-flavoured coffee syrup

    Process all ingredients together in blender until very smooth. Refrigerate until quite cold, then freeze according to ice cream maker directions. Pack into quart container and freeze for several hours before serving. If sherbet is very hard, let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes or so, until soft enough to scoop out easily.

    Makes about 4 cups (1 L).

    Serves 8.

    Each serving contains: 151 calories; 3 g protein; 0.8 g total fat (0.05 g sat. fat, 0 g trans fat); 33 g carbohydrates; 0 g fibre; 44 mg sodium

    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.
