With a new year comes a clean slate and an opportunity to learn how to cook up some new dishes. Whether you're a qualified chef or are just getting into cooking, we've got you covered with our list of popular recipes as well as unique twists on traditional ones that will make your mouth water!
From classic, tried-and-true dishes for all occasions to the latest in vegan cuisine that'll have everyone coming back for seconds and thirds; these seven dish creations will give any home chef plenty of ideas.
Nothing says comfort food like spaghetti and meatballs. This timeless Italian dish is a great option for an easy weeknight dinner that can be made from scratch in under an hour, or with the help of a jarred sauce in just 20 minutes. Some of the most popular meatball recipes include ones with pork, beef, chicken, turkey, and even vegetarian-friendly options that use mushrooms or lentils.
To make your meal complete, serve it with a side of garlic bread and some fresh veggies on the side. And to make sure your utensils are “fit” for the meal, use a sharpening stone to get them ready for effective use.
This twist on spaghetti and meatballs uses spaghetti squash instead of pasta to make it gluten-free and lower in carbs, but still just as delicious. To make it even healthier, top the dish off with a hearty serving of steamed broccoli or roasted kale.
This vegan version of everyone's favorite comfort food is guaranteed to satisfy any cravings for creamy, cheesy goodness. It's made with a blend of cashews, nutritional yeast, and almond milk to give it that classic “cheesy” flavor without the dairy. Topped off with breadcrumbs and fresh herbs, this dish makes for a delicious meal served alongside some crispy oven-roasted potatoes or green beans.
These stuffed potatoes are the perfect party appetizer. They can be made ahead of time, frozen, and then baked at the last minute. They're also super customizable; swap out the BBQ sauce for a different flavor or add a little shredded cheese on top for extra gooeyness.
This dish is loaded with veggies and topped off with a savory tofu and soy sauce mixture that makes it hard to believe it only takes 20 minutes to make! If you want to add even more protein, throw in a handful of edamame beans or some grilled chicken.
These chickpea stacks are super satisfying thanks to the creamy hummus that's drizzled over the top and a few slices of red onion for some fresh crunch. They're made with just a few ingredients and can be made ahead of time, so you can use them as party food or even turn them into a sandwich!
This dish is packed with protein thanks to the shrimp, and it's easy to make ahead of time so you can enjoy it all week long. It's also a great way to sneak in some extra veggies like carrots and broccoli because the shrimp will disguise them in this very tasty dish.
