    Using oats and omega-3-rich salmon is a nutritional step up from the typical ground beef and breadcrumb mixture. The pomegranate glaze adds a sophisticated touch.

    3 – 160 g cans wild salmon, drained 
    2 large free-range eggs, lightly beaten
    1 cup (250 ml) rolled or quick-cook oats
    1 large carrot, grated
    1 shallot, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    ¼ cup (60 ml) chopped flat-leaf parsley
    Juice of ½ lemon 
    3 tsp (15 ml) prepared horseradish (optional)
    ¼ tsp (1 ml) salt
    ¼ tsp (1 ml) ground black pepper
    1 cup (250 ml) pomegranate juice 
    3 tsp (15 ml) palm sugar or other raw sugar
    3 tsp (15 ml) balsamic vinegar

    Preheat oven to 180 C.

    In large bowl, flake salmon with fork and stir in eggs, oats, carrot, shallot, garlic, parsley, lemon, horseradish (if using), salt and pepper.

    Add salmon mixture to 2 L greased loaf pan and spread until mixture is of even height and width. Bake for 40 minutes, or until salmon loaf is set in centre. Let cool for several minutes before unmoulding.

    Meanwhile, place pomegranate juice, sugar and vinegar in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high and simmer, uncovered, until reduced and slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.

    Unmould salmon loaf and spread pomegranate glaze over top. Slice and serve.

    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.
