If looks could kill, this dish would be doing hard time. Buttery salmon, an umami-sweet carrot sauce, and fetching black rice team up in this swoon-worthy dish.
Not to be confused with wild rice, heirloom black rice can be found in health food stores and Asian markets.
In medium saucepan, bring 2 cups (500 mL) water to a boil. Add black rice and simmer, covered, until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain any excess water.
Place broth, carrot, garlic, and ginger in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, until carrots are very tender, about 15 minutes. Place carrot mixture, miso, and orange zest in blender container and blend until smooth.
Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Heat orange juice, honey, salt, and pepper in small saucepan until honey has liquefied. Place salmon on parchment paper-lined baking sheet and brush with half of orange-honey mixture. Bake for 5 minutes, brush on remaining orange-honey mixture, and bake for additional 5 minutes, or until fish is just cooked through in centre.
To serve, spread carrot sauce on serving plates and top with black rice and then salmon. Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro.
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.
If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
