Raspberry Gazpacho

Serves 4.


    Raspberry Gazpacho

    A quick trip through the blender serves to mingle a riot of fresh flavours, which is why the cold soup known as gazpacho is always a delicious way to beat the heat. This riff on the Spanish soup includes raspberries for a touch of sweetness, while the chunky topping adds contrasting texture.



    Slowly pouring the oil into the soup at the end allows for better emulsion for a more luscious mouth feel.

    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.
