We can’t believe it, either: 2021 is winding down, and 2022 is sneaking up on us. As we look back on another year filled with ups, downs and even more time spent at home, we’re also taking a look back at our greatest hits: our top clean recipes of 2021. From creative spins on classics (like our much-loved jar-cuterie) to ingenious new ways to eat more plants (our versatile plant-based meat, anyone?) to quick and easy dishes that saved you time and effort, we had one seriously delicious year filled with fresh, new and highly nutritious recipes.

We’re revisiting and re-sharing 35 of our best recipes of 2021 and take a look at our most popular meals. These were the dishes you loved the most, both here at Clean Eating and on social media; each one captured our readers’ interest, attention and tastebuds.
