ed Lentil, R QUINOA

AND WHITE BEAN SOUP WITH SEAWEED

THIS SOUP HAS AN INCREDIBLE TEXTURE AND FLAVOUR. IT IS A POWERHOUSE MEAL AND FREEZES BEAUTIFULLY.

Wakame is dried seaweed.

INGREDIENTS • 2 tbsp olive oil • 2 carrots, peeled and diced • 1 onion, peeled and diced • 2 celery stalks, diced • 1 small white turnip, peeled and diced

Dr. Jodi’s

CLEAN EATING NOTES:

STEP THREE: Add the white beans, red lentils and quinoa, toss and sauté for 1-2 minutes.

• 1/3 cup dry quinoa

STEP FOUR: Add the stock, water and salt and pepper, bring to a boil. Cover, turn to low and cook for 30-40 minutes.

This gluten-free “pseudograin” is in the same family as spinach, chard, and beets — not in the wheat or grain family. The little seeds are packed with fibre and protein, along with the anti-inflammatory antioxidants. Quinoa is also a compete protein – giving you all the essential amino acids our body needs to replenish cellular function.

STEP FIVE: Stir in the lemon juice. Serve and enjoy.

DOLCE VITA

W

hen one of Canada’s leading plastic surgeons, Dr. Jamil Asaria (a married, father of three), selected Audax to oversee the design of his new home, he had never contemplated Audax’s bold proposal that the home be built above his plastic surgery clinic. However, Dr. Asaria and his wife immediately appreciated the unique opportunity presented by Audax, and enthusiastically accepted the proposal to convert the second floor into a living space. ▹

13


HOME DÉCOR

Influenced by Milanese design, the interior features a luxurious open concept layout in the 4200 square-foot space. All the comforts of a traditional family house are enjoyed on the single-floor family home, including a formal foyer & dining room, an open concept kitchen & living room, a (tucked away) butler’s kitchen, four bedrooms, three washrooms, and an outdoor patio. The homeowners also enjoy a private entrance and an elevator with direct access to their clinic below.

14


The design includes a rich palette of materials, including brass, marble, walnut, and plush textiles. Audax’s very own custom Donatello Console is featured in the formal dining room along with rialto navy Jonathan Adler dining-room chairs and a rosewood dining room table. The living room features a double-sided fireplace with marble mantle together with Restoration Hardware sofas and chairs, and custom-made cushions. The powder room includes a gold umbrella hex tile coupled with a textured gold wallpaper and custom fabricated marble vanity. The dramatic master ensuite showcases a striking burled elm wood wall in a high gloss piano finish with Grand Antique black marble.

The design of each space is unique and luxurious, and features a mix of traditional and modern elements. The traditional wall paneling is set against a contemporary-styled walnut kitchen and integrated breakfast banquette. The master bedroom includes a modern take on a traditional Italian tapestry with the use of Armani Casa wallpaper on the bed wall against a shagreen headboard and nightstands from Restoration Hardware. ◆ audax.ca

TECHNOLOGY

SHUTTING THE DOOR ON ODOR

16

The laundry team at GE Appliances, a Haier company, announced a new, revolutionary laundry system designed to help prevent the biggest complaint in front load washers. The UltraFresh Front Load washers, engineered to stay fresh and clean, use first-of-its-kind technology to help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria without the need for owners to wipe down their machine or leave the door open after each load. Front load washing machines were designed for high-efficiency operation – they use the least water and energy, are gentler on clothes and have more capacity; however, 46 percent of consumers say that mold or odor is their top frustration when it comes to considering front load washers and many do not want to leave the door open to avoid the problem. In fact, one in two front load owners move back to top load washers because of smell and associated maintenance.


“Consumers are searching for solutions and coming up with ways to put a bandage on the issue, like cleaning the washer after each use, wiping down the gasket and most commonly propping the door open,” said Peter Pepe, Vice President, Product Management for laundry at GE Appliances. “Our new UltraFresh Front Load washer is the first in the industry to solve for the issues that lead to stink, making care and maintenance along with laundry chores much easier for the consumer.” • Drain the residual water: Moisture is the enemy when it comes to keeping a washer fresh and clean. GE Appliances developed a wider gasket that is angled to allow water to fully drain after the wash cycle. • Dry while keeping the door closed: The new UltraFresh Vent System with OdorBlock™ creates a revolutionary new airflow at the touch of a button. After the wash cycle, the unit pulls in and circulates fresh air, removing moisture from the door, gasket and basket. • Defend with exclusive Microban® technology: The global leader in antimicrobial additives and odor control solutions developed a unique antimicrobial technology exclusively for the GE UltraFresh Front Load washers. Microban’s technology is built into the gasket, dispenser and pump during manufacturing to help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria in parts of the washer where moisture could linger. The new UltraFresh Front Load washers also introduce a variety of exciting features driven by consumer data and insights to make laundry easier and more enjoyable, including:

• New Colours: Two new matte finishes – Satin Nickel and Sapphire Blue – join White and Diamond Gray to meet changing consumer colour preferences. Matte finishes are at the forefront of design and help to create laundry rooms that no longer get banished to basements. • SmartDispense: Holds an entire bottle of liquid laundry detergent and senses the weight and fibres contained within each load, releases the perfect amount of detergent to do the job without the mess of measuring or the need to store the bottle. Fill it and forget it for up to 32 loads. • Flexible Doors: Both the washer and dryer doors can be reversed to adapt to each laundry room’s configuration, making load-out and load-in to the dryer easier. • Large Capacity: Holds more pants, towels and bedding with larger capacity offered in a shallow footprint. • Dynamic Balancing Technology (dBT)™: New balancing technology in the machines keeps cycles quiet and efficient by proactively sensing balanced loads before accelerating spin speeds. • Smart: UltraFresh Front Load washers and dryers are WiFi connected allowing for a remote start – so clothes don’t sit all day waiting to be moved from the washer to the dryer. Washer Link connects to the dryer to automatically modify cycle settings based on the most recent wash cycle completed. UltraFresh Front Load washers will be available in major retailers and local independent dealers in January 2020. ◆ geappliances.com
