I introduced my mother to quinoa with this salad and it is still one of her favourites years later! (She was 80 at the time, proving it is never too late to change your eating habits!) You can vary the vegetables and garnishes according to your preferences and what you have on hand.
In small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, vinegar, mustards, and oil.
Pour 2 cups (500 mL) cold water into medium saucepan. Add quinoa; stir and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn heat off, and leave on burner for a further 10 minutes. Remove lid and fluff up with fork. Transfer to large bowl and add half of dressing.
While quinoa is cooling, prepare all other ingredients and add, along with remainder of dressing, once quinoa is completely cooled. Stir to combine.
This salad can be refrigerated for later use or served immediately.

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.
If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
