Very Versitile Veggie Dish
This recipe calls for medium heat, but depending on your stove, you may need to adjust the temperature to achieve the perfect golden-brown colour. Start by preheating your skillet and testing the temperature on a single pancake.

This savoury pancake makes a great starter for a small group or a hearty meal that serves one or two people. Look for okonomi sauce and bonito flakes at Asian supermarkets. If you can't find the more richly flavoured Japanese-style mayonnaise, substitute with regular mayo.
Okonomiyaki: In bowl, toss together cabbage, shrimp, green onions and ginger.
In large bowl, whisk together flour, salt and pepper. In separate bowl, whisk together broth, egg and bonito flakes; whisk into flour mixture until combined. Stir in cabbage mixture.
In 10-inch nonstick or cast-iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Pour in batter, spreading to edges; arrange bacon over top. Cook until bottom is light golden, 5 to 6 minutes. To turn, using spatula, gently slide pancake onto plate, bacon side up; quickly invert pancake into pan. Cook until bacon is crisp, about 6 minutes. Using 2 large spatulas, transfer pancake to plate, bacon side up.
Topping: Drizzle pancake with okonomi sauce and mayonnaise; sprinkle with bonito flakes and green onions.
The Ultimate Roast Chicken with Gravy IMAGE Image by: The Ultimate Roast Chicken with Gravy IMAGE
Crispy herb-flecked skin? Check. Tender juicy meat? Check. Rich full-bodied gravy? It's got that, too. Our foolproof take on the classic Sunday supper is so good — and so easy — you might be tempted to make it on weeknights.
Garlic Butter: In small bowl, stir together butter, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper.
Roast Chicken: Sprinkle cavity of chicken with salt and pepper; fill with onion, thyme and rosemary. Rub chicken all over with Garlic Butter. Place, breast side up, on greased rack in roasting pan.
Roast in 375°F (190°C) oven for 45 minutes; baste and continue to roast, basting occasionally, until instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh reads 185°F (85°C), about 30 more minutes. Discard contents of cavity. Using tongs, tip chicken to pour juices into pan. Remove chicken to platter; cover loosely with foil. Let rest for 20 minutes before carving.
Gravy: Meanwhile, tilt pan so juices collect at 1 end. Skim fat from surface, reserving 1 tbsp. In small bowl, stir together butter, flour and reserved fat; set aside. Place pan over medium heat; whisk in wine. Cook, whisking and scraping up browned bits, until reduced by half, about 1 minute.
Whisk in broth; bring to boil. Gradually whisk in butter mixture, 2 tsp at a time, until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Strain through fine-mesh sieve; stir in pepper. If necessary, stir in enough boiling water to loosen and yield 1 cup gravy. Serve with chicken.
Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges with Warm Feta Sauce Image by: Angus Fergusson
A drizzling of salty feta, tangy Greek yogurt and bright citrus gives loads of flavour to these sweet potato wedges. The almonds lend a satisfying crunch to the tender potatoes and creamy sauce, but feel free to omit them, if you prefer.
In large bowl, toss together sweet potatoes, olive oil, garlic and 1/4 tsp of the salt. Arrange in single layer on parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet. Roast in 425°F oven, turning once, until tender and edges are golden, about 35 minutes. Transfer to serving dish.
While sweet potatoes are roasting, in microwaveable bowl, microwave feta on high until warmed, about 10 seconds. Stir in yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, pepper and remaining salt.
Spoon yogurt mixture over sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with almonds and oregano.
