    Open-Faced Shrimp Sandwich with Celery, Radish, and Sunflower Shoots

    The delicate flavour of shrimp is highlighted with just a touch of lemon and a hint of mustard, while radish and celery give some fresh crunch to this dish. Eat it in lettuce cups, on top of greens, or served on whole grain bread for a filling snack.

      Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry
