    Adding pumpkin ups the nutrient ante of regular pancakes.


    1 cup (250 mL) soy milk, unsweetened
    1 egg
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for frying pan
    1/2 cup (125 mL) pure pumpkin purée unseasoned
    3/4 cup (180 mL) whole grain pancake mix
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) wheat germ
    1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon

    In medium bowl whisk together soy milk, egg, oil, and pumpkin. Add pancake mix, wheat germ, and cinnamon. Stir well.

    Preheat oven to 200 F (95 C).

    Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add a small amount of oil to lightly coat the pan. Pour 1/4 cup (60 mL) batter for each pancake and cook until dark golden brown. Flip and cook the other side until done.

    Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Cinnamon, Cloves, and Allspice

    There’s nothing like a roast to feed a crowd. These lean pork tenderloins will reign at the buffet table and will be equally enjoyed hot or cold. Simply prepared with a rub scented with the flavours of your favourite apple pie, the meat is roasted and rested to retain its juices before being laid out on peppery arugula leaves simply dressed in a classic vinaigrette. When is pork done? Has your pork ever come out dry? It could be all down to a number. In 2020, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) updated its recommended internal temperature from the previously published 160 F (70 C) to 145 F (63 C) to allow for rest time. The new standard reflects a clearer distinction between temperature taken prior to rest time and after. During rest time, the internal temperature continues to rise, reaching the desired 160 F (70 C).
