    Oven-Dried Tomatoes

    Reducing a tomato’s water content will intensify its flavour. The meatier Roma variety works well here. These are delicious as pizza or bruschetta toppings, in sandwiches, pastas, and salads.

    6 Roma tomatoes
    Extra-virgin olive oil
    Sea salt and fresh pepper to taste

    Preheat oven to 325 F (160 C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice tomatoes in half lengthwise; place on sheet cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil; season with sea salt and fresh pepper.

    Bake 2 to 4 hours until reduced in size but not dry and shrivelled. Allow to cool; slip off skins.

    Place in airtight container; refrigerate or freeze.

    Makes 12 servings.

    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.
