    Smoked Salmon and Avocado Maki

    Smoked trout and mackerel are good stand-ins for salmon. Choose wild Pacific salmon rather than farmed.

    6 sheets nori seaweed (preferably toasted)
    4 1/2 cups (1.125 L) prepared sushi rice (see recipe here)
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) wasabi paste (optional)
    About 2 cups (500 mL) baby spinach, chopped
    6 ounces (170 g) smoked salmon, cut into thin strips
    1/2 avocado, peeled and cut into thin strips
    1/4 cup (60 mL) soy sauce
    Pickled ginger (optional)

    Place a nori sheet on a bamboo mat and add about 3/4 cup (180 mL) rice and flatten. If using wasabi, make a lengthwise depression in the rice in the middle and add a small amount of wasabi (add too much and you’ll want to call the fire department).

    Place 1/6 of the spinach, salmon, and avocado strips onto the wasabi and roll. Cut into 6 pieces and repeat with remaining nori sheets.

    Serve with soy sauce and ginger. Makes about 36 pieces.

    Each 6-piece serving contains: 264 calories; 10 g protein; 4 g fat (0 g sat. fat, 0 g trans fat); 44 g carbohydrates; 3 g fibre; 740 mg sodium.

    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.
