    You can also use quinoa, khorasan (also known as kamut) or wheat flakes for this porridge. Reheat leftovers in a saucepan with a small amount of additional water or milk.

    1 1/2 cups (350 ml) spelt flakes
    4 1/2 cups (1.25 L) water
    1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon
    1/2 tsp (2 ml) nutmeg
    1/2 cup (125 ml) raisins
    1/3 cup (80 ml) sunflower seeds
    1 1/2 Tbsp (30 ml) sucanat or other raw sugar
    1/4 cup (60 ml) peanut or almond butter
    2 cups (500 ml) blueberries

    1. Place spelt flakes, water, cinnamon and nutmeg in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 12 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed but mixture is still creamy like oatmeal, stirring occasionally. 2. Stir in raisins, sunflower seeds and sugar; heat 2 minutes. 3. Taste and adjust sweetness if desired. 4. Divide among serving bowls and top with peanut or almond butter and blueberries.

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    These whimsical weeknight quesadillas offer a great excuse to break out the long-forgotten waffle iron. The smoky, tangy pepper sauce is the perfect sidekick for this dish, but it’s also wonderful when tossed with pasta, stuffed into sandwiches, and slathered on burgers. TIP : When assembling quesadillas, keep fillings centred 1/2 in (1.25 cm) from the edge of the tortilla so they don’t spill over. TIP : Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapenos. Adobo is a slightly sweet red sauce. Put them together in a can and they become a versatile pantry staple to add deep smoky heat to sauces, dips, marinades, and soups. No waffle iron? Then make these quesadillas using this skillet method. Place 1 tortilla in skillet, preferably cast iron, and cook over medium heat until dark spots appear and bottom is crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn over and cook until crispy and darkened on the other side. Remove tortilla from skillet and replace with another tortilla. Cook until darkened and crispy on one side, flip, and top with stuffing ingredients. Place crispy tortilla on top, press down gently, cover pan, and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.
