Barley with nuts and dried fruit

Crunchy with almonds and pine nuts, this casserole is perfect alongside baked ham or turkey.

Sesame-Ginger Marinated Grilled Shiitakes

The marinating time in this recipe is short, so you can heat your grill while you’re prepping. Buy your shiitakes from a bulk bin, so that you can pick out the biggest ones. Large or medium caps are best for grilling; the little ones tend to fall through the cracks.

Stir-Fried Swiss Chard with Pine Nuts and Balsamic Butter

As it sits, cooked chard begins to release liquid which, enhanced with butter and balsamic, is delicious. This dish would be perfect with polenta or a grain pilaf to soak up the liquid, and its deep, earthy flavours would also marry particularly well with a juicy steak.

Corn, edamame and jicama slaw

This Mexican-inspired recipe adds mint to this terrific combo of sweet corn, jicama, and edamame
