Bright tomato sauce with a splash of vodka gets simmered with juicy meatballs — and it can all be made in advance and ready to cook in the Instant Pot. We like to serve them with steamed green beans or broccoli, but you can also enjoy with crusty bread to soak up the sauce.
There’s nothing that says breezy beach barbecue like fish tacos. In this recipe, we layer grilled cod with poblanos, avocados and gremolata, a mix of fragrant chopped herbs, garlic and lime zest. We chop the herbs by hand here, but feel free to pulse ingredients in the food processor if you prefer.
A quick soy-lime dressing adds serious oomph to this crunchy slaw. The beauty of a slaw made with heartier ingredients such as broccoli, carrots and radishes is that you can toss it in the dressing before leaving the house and it won’t get soggy. If you don’t have a portable grill, you can also cook the tofu in a skillet or grill pan before leaving the house.
Golden chickpeas and cauliflower give this salad a rich, earthy taste that matches well with the nutty quinoa.
This Asian-inspired recipe uses boneless chicken breasts, but boneless chicken thighs work just as well. If you want to give the dish a spicy spin, add one serrano hot pepper to the mixture before freezing; cook the pepper in the sauce then remove and discard it before serving.
