    Place apples, lemon juice, ginger, and cinnamon in small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer covered until apples are very tender, about 15 minutes.


    In large bowl, stir together flour, flaxseed, garlic powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper. Add sweet potato, kale, and green onions to bowl. Stir in eggs until everything is moist.


    Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. For each patty, add 1/4 cup (60 mL) packed sweet potato mixture to skillet and gently press down to flatten. Cook for 3 minutes per side, or until browned and crispy. Keep cooked patties warm in a 200 F (95 C) oven while preparing remaining sweet potato mixture.


    Serve patties topped with apple chutney.

    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.
