Quick recipes often become my favorites. They are the ones I revisit most often, the ones that have a tendency to become staples. I’m a believer that just because a recipe comes together quickly, doesn’t mean it's less special or delicious.

Two-ingredient magic. Plump, juicy, citrus segments coated in thin, crunchy, sugar shells.
Imagine guacamole topped with fragrant, Indian-spiced onions and garlic, green chiles, and mustard seeds. It's great with chips, toasted naan, or toasted pita.
THIS needs to be your two-ingredient summer, everything beverage.
Blender soups are great because, often, you need just a few ingredients and a fifteen minutes or so. Take one all-star, seasonal ingredient like winter squash, or broccoli, or asparagus. Beyond that, perhaps an onion, some broth or water, some herbs or spices, boom - you've got what you need to make a beautiful, silky blended soup.
A really great way to cook jackfruit for burritos and tacos. Also, a number of ways you can tweak the recipe - a Thai curry paste version, as well as a BBQ jackfruit version.
This shredded jackfruit burrito is GREAT! The jackfruit is sautéed with lots of garlic and taco/chili seasoning to create a dynamic burrito filling that just about anyone can get behind.
Winter favorite! A fortifying lentil and tomato-based stew, dotted with plump, tender dumplings, spiked with a range of spices, and boosted with plenty of spinach.
Some of my personal favorites. The ones that are super weeknight-friendly, with reasonable ingredient lists. Pulling some long-time favorites from deep in the archives!
Chili, beer, and elbow pasta. I know of no other dinner that takes less effort than the Instant Pot version of this. It's literally for nights when take-out takes too long, and is too much effort. Seriously.
This is a snappy little stir-fry, it comes together in a flash, and is the perfect way to kick off the new year. Use it as a spring roll or lettuce wrap filling as well!
