A perfect one-pot meal. Noodles, tofu, and broccoli boiled in one pot, drained, tossed with splashes of olive oil and ponzu, plus a generous showering of everything bagel seasoning to finish it all off.
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!
A slow cooker black bean chili for the weeknight win. This version is Kahlua-spiked with chili powder and good dose of chipotle.
Putting a handful of new, veg-centric recipes into rotation this time of year can move the needle in the right direction. Hopefully this will provide a bit of inspiration!
An Insta-friendly riff on the Chickpea Cauliflower Korma recipe in Jennifer Iserloh's The Healing Slow Cooker - chickpeas, cauliflower, combined with a not-shy simmer sauce.
In the April 1998 issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine there was a recipe for Sesame Asparagus and Tofu. I ripped it out, and cooked it a hundred times in the twenty years since.
