Toasting nuts always brings out the flavour, and adding maple syrup adds a hint of sweetness. Substitute pecans, if you prefer.
Maple Toasted Walnut and Pear Salad
Serve this small salad as part of a Japanese meal, perhaps to accompany a bento box.
Garlic-Braised Kale and Corn
If the kale leaves are particularly large or seem tougher than usual, remove the centre rib of the kale leaves, as well as the stems.
Creamy Tomato Sauce with Pasta
A quick and easy pasta for a weeknight. Evaporated milk adds wonderful creaminess to the sauce, as well as making this a good source of calcium with 260 mg per serving.
Garlicky Green Beans
This delicious side dish comes together in minutes. Perfect to accompany a holiday roast, but easy enough to make any day of the week.
Korma is a mild, creamy curry. Exotic and spicy, but not too hot!
Crustless Onion Quiche
It's the filling that makes this quiche. This crustless version is satisfyingly cheesy and oniony - and much less complicated to make.
Warm Spinach and Apple Salad
Prepared this way, the glazed apple slices taste almost like nectarines. A nifty salad trick.
