These are visually delicious and healthy. Great for a high tea as well. You can find lavender at spice shops, but if you have trouble finding some, these pudding cups are still lovely and lemony without it.
You could make these delicious cups larger by using regular muffin cups. Try blueberries if you don’t have raspberries; they make a tasty substitute.
For pudding, place can of coconut milk in fridge overnight or a few days ahead. This will separate the coconut cream from the water.
Remove coconut milk from fridge and scoop out hardened coconut cream. You can use the water for a smoothie or for drinking later. In medium-sized bowl, add cream, chia seeds, salt, coconut sugar, lemon juice, and lavender. Whisk together. Place in fridge for an hour or two until it has settled into a pudding-like texture.
For crust, in food processor, combine oats, salt, dates, coconut, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Once fully incorporated, remove mixture from processor and, using your fingers, spread approximately 1/2 to 1 Tbsp (7 to 15 mL) of oat mixture into oiled mini muffin tin. Press oats up sides like a crust. Repeat until mixture has been used up. Place in freezer or fridge until hardened.
Once hardened, carefully use knife to scoop out the oat cups. Fill cups with lemon lavender pudding. Top each cup with a raspberry. Return to fridge until ready to serve. Drizzle with a little maple syrup before serving, if you wish.

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.
Two fall stalwarts—rutabaga and Swiss chard—team up to bring seasonal flavour to these baked savoury cakes. A topping of velvety cashew cream adds a little extra spark. Rutabaga burgers, anyone?

The sweet potato mixture can be made a day or two in advance and reheated in the microwave before serving. Pick of the crops For sautéing purposes, you want to use pears that keep their shape when heated. Bosc and Anjou are two good options. Fuji, Cortland, Honeycrisp, and Empire are excellent apple choices for heating in the skillet, as they won’t turn too mushy.
