This cloudlike dessert gives ice cream a run for its money. A tangy yogurt mousse is topped with a floral strawberry jam and garnished with (surprise!) black pepper. If you’d like a bit of crunch, top with chopped pistachios or almonds.
You can use any soft summer fruit to make this quick jam. Try plums, apricots, raspberries or blueberries for a fresh spin.
In bowl of stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment or in large bowl by hand with whisk, beat coconut milk until soft peaks form.
Add yogurt, lemon zest, maple syrup and vanilla. Beat again until medium peaks form (donu2019t overwhip). Spoon mousse into 4 glass jars or bowls, cover and chill for at least 30 minutes, up to 1 day.
In small saucepan over high heat, combine berries, thyme and lavender (if using). When berries begin to sizzle and release some juice, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until berries are very soft. Stir in lemon juice and transfer to food processor or blender; pureu0301e until smooth. Chill until ready to serve.
Dollop jam on top of chilled mousse and sprinkle with fresh pepper, additional lemon zest and additional lavender buds, if using. Serve.

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.
If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
