    Pico de Gallo

    Adding mango to this time-honoured Mexican topping infuses it with a hit of sweetness. You can also use pineapple or peach. It’s wonderful with tortilla chips as well. The salsa can be made up to three days ahead of time and kept covered in the refrigerator, but it’s best served at room temperature.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    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.
