    Salmon Kimchi Quesadilla

    The net effect of stuffing a quesadilla with rich-tasting salmon, fiery kimchi, sweet pineapple, and a creamy avocado spread? Wow. Here, the half-moon quesadilla method better keeps all the contents from spilling out in the absence of cheese.

    1 ripe avocado Juice of 1 lime 1/2 lb (227 g) cooked wild salmon, thinly sliced 1 cup (250 mL) chopped pineapple 1 cup (250 mL) chopped kimchi 2 green onions, thinly sliced 4 - 8 in (20 cm) organic whole wheat or gluten-free tortillas In small bowl, mash together avocado and lime juice.

    Heat skillet over medium heat. Spread one-quarter of avocado on tortilla, leaving a 1/2 in (1.25 cm) border. Place one-quarter of salmon, pineapple, kimchi, and green onions on bottom third of tortilla and then fold tortilla over from top to enclose toppings.

    Heat quesadilla for 1 1/2 minutes, or until bottom of tortilla is darkened and crispy. Carefully flip and cook for about 1 1/2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining tortillas and fillings.

    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.
