Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

    Share

    The fantastic flavour of this dressing comes from the fresh herbs. Use any combination of parsley, basil, oregano, chives, and tarragon. The herbs add powerful immune support and vitamin C along with the red peppers. Nutritional yeast is an excellent source of minerals as well as the B vitamins.

    1/2 cup (125 ml) flax seed oil
    1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh herbs, chopped
    1/4 cup (60 ml) roasted red peppers in oil, finely chopped
    1 tbsp (15 ml) nutritional yeast (optional)
    1/2 tsp (2 ml) sea salt

    Combine all ingredients in a jar and shake well. Refrigerate and use within two days. To bake potatoes, scrub well and pierce skins with a fork. Place in a 400 F oven (200 C) for 45 - 60 minutes. Allow to cool five minutes before slicing open. Fluff inside the potato with a fork before adding dressing.

    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.
