Lose the leftovers

Hate to cook because there always seems to be too many leftovers that you either overeat or feel guilty throwing away? Here's a refreshing little dessert made for one. A guest for dinner? Just double the recipe.

Tips from Janet's kitchen

• Sweet onions, such as Vidalias and Walla Wallas, aren't really sweet, they are just less pungent than red or yellow onions.

• Toasting spices in a dry skillet over medium heat brings out more flavor.

• To add more flavor to rice, cook it in chicken or vegetable stock.

Mango Sorbet

1 cup frozen mango chunks

1 tablespoon light agave syrup

1 tablespoon fresh orange juice

Place all ingredients in a mini food processor or blender and pulse until smooth.

Scoop mixture into bowl and serve immediately.

If desired, top it off with fresh mango slices, fresh mint or berries for garnish.
