    Raspberries with Orange-Flavoured Cream

    The orange-flavoured cream is made with thickened yogourt, sometimes called yogourt cheese. Use a probiotic yogourt that does not contain thickeners. The plain yogourt tends to be quite tart; feel free to substitute with a low-fat probiotic French vanilla yogourt and omit the honey.

    2 cups (500 mL) low-fat plain yogourt = 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) yogourt cheese
    1/4 cup (60 mL) orange juice concentrate, thawed and undiluted
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) honey, to taste
    6 cups (1.5 L) frozen raspberries, thawed

    Place yogourt in mesh strainer lined with 1 large, unbleached paper coffee filter or piece of cheesecloth over a bowl. Cover and let sit in fridge for up to 12 hours.

    The night before: remove frozen raspberries from freezer and let thaw in fridge.

    Next day: remove thickened yogourt from fridge, discard water, and place yogourt in medium bowl. Stir in thawed orange juice concentrate. Add honey to taste. This can be done up to 2 days in advance and stored in fridge.

    Divide thawed raspberries equally among 6 small bowls. Top equally with some of the yogourt mixture. Serve.

    Makes 6 - 1/2 cup (125 mL) servings.

    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.
