    Rose Fruit Parfait

    To get the most benefit from delicious superfruits, eat them in their freshest state. Bursting with flavour, a mild splash of rosewater (available at specialty food stores) makes them even more sumptuous—don’t overdo it or it will overpower the flavours rather than enhance them. This recipe can be altered to use your favourite superfruits—just mix and match to your taste buds’ delight!

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
