This version includes chicken and features Sicilian Volcano lemon juice married with Filotea Lemon pasta.Chocolate Sauce Pudding CakeThis is a double chocolate hit with a pudding-like cake that has been doused with Toboggan's rich Vanilla Stout Chocolate sauce. Simply fabulous when served with quality vanilla ice cream. Leftovers can be microwaved briefly.Lentils with Beets, Walnuts and Goat CheeseI love lentils, particularly the French green Du Puy lentils. These lentils keep their shape and texture much better than most, and the color is more intense. Once you’ve had these it’s hard to go back to any other kind. This salad features sweet roasted beets and goat cheese with the lentils, along with toasted walnuts and a delicious vinaigrette. One of my favourite main-course salads, it can be served with the lentils warm or chilled.Vegetarian Lentil Shepherd’s PieComfort food at its best, featuring healthy lentils and local root vegetables. Just as satisfying as its meaty counterpart. Coconut Curry Chicken with Cauliflower and ChickpeasStonewall Kitchen maintains a prominent place on our shelves at Jill's Table. One of our absolute favourites is their Coconut Curry Simmering Sauce. We love extending the basic recipe by adding chicken, cauliflower, and chickpeas. TourtièreThis is a special traditional treat Jill makes every Christmas Eve. The pastry is very easy to prepare and so tender and delicious. Serve this with Jill’s Table Apple Tamarind chutney to make it extra special.Hearty Tuscan SoupThis soup is Tuscan simplicity at its best. Great quality olive oil, tomatoes and beans along with some local vegetables. A heaping spoonful of grated cheese is all you will need to round out this satisfying soup!
