Just days after my boyfriend, Ben, announced that he hated tempeh (cue my heart breaking), I made this pasta for myself and happened to leave the leftovers out on the counter. Ben wandered into the kitchen, and when I looked over, he was eating it straight from the pot, not knowing it had tempeh, and saying it was one of my best pastas yet. Come one, come all, tempeh-lovers, tempeh-haters . . . you are going to love this recipe.
Bring large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and cook to al dente according to package directions. Drain pasta and return to pot, off heat.
Make the cashew sauce: In medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until softened. Transfer to blender; set skillet aside (no need to wash it). Add cashews, water, sriracha, maple syrup and salt to blender. Blend on high speed for about 2 minutes, until very smooth.
Make the sriracha tempeh: In same skillet in which you cooked onion, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. When it shimmers, add tempeh and cook, stirring, for 6 to 8 minutes, until golden and lightly browned.
In small bowl, whisk together water, sriracha, maple syrup and salt. Pour mixture over tempeh and reduce heat to medium. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often, until sauce has somewhat been absorbed and has thickened.
Add cashew sauce to pot with pasta and toss to coat. Season with pepper; taste and adjust seasoning. If sauce gets too thick, add water, 1 Tbsp at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Serve pasta in bowls and top each serving with sriracha tempeh, cilantro and a lime wedge.

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]
