The stars of this delicious curry dish are yellow and orange fruits and vegetables, which are high in a form of carotenoids called xanthophylls. These compounds have more of a yellow pigment as opposed to their orangier cousins, the carotenes. While a powerful antioxidant, xanthophylls are mostly associated with maintaining good eye health.

In large saucepan, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Add shallots, garlic, ginger, and chopped serrano pepper and cook, stirring often, until shallots are tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in curry paste and cook, stirring constantly, for a minute. Add coconut milk, turmeric, and soy sauce or aminos, stirring into curry mixture until well combined. Bring mixture to a simmer before stirring in cauliflower, squash, and tempeh. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until cauliflower and squash are al dente, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove lid from saucepan, stir in mango chunks, and let cook for another minute.
To serve, divide curry among serving bowls and garnish with roasted cashews and a squeeze of lemon. Enjoy warm.
Store any leftovers in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat, stirring constantly over medium heat, with some additional coconut milk should it need a bit more moisture.
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]
