Roasted chickpeas seasoned lightly with curry powder make a crunchy topper for this orange-infused salad.
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.
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.
Chickpeas and an array of colorful veggies combine for a complete meal.
This vibrant salad uses zucchini thinly shaved into ribbons using a vegetable peeler, but if you have a spiral slicer, you can use that instead. Chipotle chile peppers add a smoky heat to the yogurt-based dressing, and crunchy pumpkin seeds and creamy feta top it off for a medley of flavors and textures.
Shrubs are fermented drink concentrates traditionally made with berries, sugar and fruit vinegars. This version uses ginger and apple cider vinegar – two powerful digestive aids – along with fall flavors of pear, honey and vanilla. Serve it hot or cold, and it also makes an excellent cocktail.
Soda that’s good for you? Yes, please! The key to making this gut-healthy drink is to start with a ginger bug. Similar in concept to a sourdough starter, a ginger bug is a fermented mixture of fresh ginger, evaporated cane juice and water, and it’s what gives homemade sodas a refreshing natural fizziness. The time it takes for the soda to fully ferment depends on the temperature in your home – if it’s warmer, 2 days should do it, but you might need up to 10 days if your home is on the cooler side.
