    Again, the extra time pays off in a super concentrated burst of citrus, so mix this up a day ahead and cook it while you enjoy your main course.

    10 organic lemons, zest and juice
    1/2 cup (500 mL) organic cream (36 %)
    1 1/4 cups (300 mL) organic sugar
    10 free-range organic eggs

    Whisk sugar and eggs together; add juice and zest and whisk again. Put the mix in the fridge for up to 24 hours, to get maximum lemon flavour.

    Strain the mix of the zest and seeds and pour the mix into ramekins or cappuccino cups. Put the cups into a water bath (a baking pan filled 2/3 with water) and bake at 325 F (160 C) for about 25 minutes, or until there is no jiggle in the cups.

    Cool down the mix and enjoy. Serves 6.

    Beet Falafel Burgers with Dilly Tahini Sauce

    If a falafel and burger had a love child, this would be it. The result of this hybrid is a vibrantly coloured, complex-flavoured veggie burger you’ll flip over. You can also serve them between toasted hamburger buns with toppings such as sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, and arugula.  Holding it together Many plant-based burgers are crumbly and weak, risking a patty that ends up between the grill grates instead of intact on your plate. Keep your burgers together by forming patties no larger than 1 in (2.5 cm) thick, which ensures a nice, even crust on the outside and a thoroughly warmed-through centre, then chilling the patties before grilling. You can also consider using a burger mould, which gives you denser, equally sized patties that cook evenly. Be sure your grill grates are well greased.  Deep freeze You can freeze uncooked falafel burgers on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or plate and then transfer frozen patties to an airtight container. When ready, just thaw and cook as instructed. Falafel cooking options To bake: Arrange falafel on parchment-lined baking sheet and brush lightly with oil; bake at 375 F (190 C) for 25 minutes, or until crispy on the outside and heated through. To pan fry: Heat large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add 1 Tbsp oil (15 mL) for each 2 burgers in the pan, swirl to coat pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until underside is browned. Then flip carefully and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.
