    Liver Cleansing Coleslaw

    Red cabbage adds gorgeous colour and beneficial plant pigments that help fight disease. For cleansing, the less fat the better, so I like to make a fruit juice dressing rather than the traditional mayonnaise. The fermented yogourt kefir is another healthy option for the dressing.

    2 cups (500 mL) green cabbage
    2 cups (500 mL) red cabbage
    1 cup (250 mL) raisins (optional)
    1 apple, grated
    2 carrots, grated
    3 green onions, chopped

    Dressing:
    1/4 cup (60 mL) natural mayonnaise, organic kefir, or apple juice
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) apple cider vinegar
    1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) good quality mustard
    1 tsp (5 mL) honey (optional)

    >Mix dressing ingredients together in a small bowl or jar.

    In a large bowl, combine red and green cabbage, raisins, grated apple, and carrots. Pour dressing over vegetables and mix thoroughly. Garnish with green onions. Serves 6.

    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.
