    Ploughman's Salad

    Apples, cheese, and leafy greens are the mainstay here—but feel free to add olive oil croutons, pickled onions or beets, or slivers of cooked chicken or turkey. Use Pink Lady, Empire, or Gala apples for their fresh, explosive flavours.

    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.
