I bought a lot of dates on sale and then tried to use them up in different ways.

This classic warm-you-up stew becomes even more comforting when made with well-marbled pot roast rather than the usual stewing beef. The fat melts slowly as it cooks, tenderizing the beef into juicy melt-in-your-mouth morsels. A slow finish in the oven gives the stew its rich, hearty texture.

Dotted with chocolate and pistachios, this after-dinner treat begs to be dipped in tea.

Tsukune are flavourful grilled chicken meatballs, and they're right at home nestled into piquant peppers. Depending on your heat tolerance, you can either remove the seeds and membranes from the jalapeños for milder spice or leave them in for extra kick. Make sure you pierce both the jalapeños and the chicken inside when skewering the peppers to help keep the chicken in place during grilling.
In bowl, whisk together 1 tbsp of the mirin and the miso paste until smooth. Stir in chicken, green onions, mushrooms, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper until combined. Spoon into jalapeño peppers. Thread 2 of the jalapeño pepper halves crosswise onto 2 soaked wooden skewers. Repeat with remaining jalapeño pepper halves and 10 additional skewers. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)
Place, cut side down, on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill for 5 minutes. Turn skewers; grill until chicken is no longer pink and instant-read thermometer inserted in centres reads 165°F, about 10 minutes.
Whisk together remaining mirin, soy sauce and oil; brush over chicken before serving.

Packed with hearty lentils, these tasty tacos are super satisfying. We've used dried green lentils rather than canned because they contain far less sodium and have a better texture.
