    Roast garlic: preheat oven to 350 F (180 C); slice pointed tops off two heads of garlic to expose cloves inside; place heads on tinfoil and drizzle oil over top; wrap heads tightly in foil; bake for 40 minutes or until garlic is soft; remove from oven, unwrap, and allow to cool.

    Make dressing: squeeze garlic out of cloves into food processor. Add vinegar, shallot, mustard, salt, pepper, and olive oil and blend together. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

    Scrub potatoes well. Cut in half, if necessary, so they’re about 1.5 in (4 cm) in diameter. Place in large pot of water with vinegar and salt. Bring to boil and cook for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain.

    Combine dressing with hot potatoes. Cool for five minutes.

    Arrange arugula in shallow bowl and spoon potatoes and dressing on top. Toss lightly. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

    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.
