The moist environment of the Instant Pot or slow cooker helps artichokes become extra tender. Here they are stuffed with Italian sausage, Parmesan cheese and herby bread crumbs and served with a tangy balsamic red pepper sauce. Serve as an appetizer or pair with a salad for a main.
It sounds like a ton, but the garlic cloves in this classic French recipe mellow and melt into a delicious sauce as they cook. Save on prep time by buying pre-peeled garlic; look for it in the produce department where fresh herbs are sold. For the most accurate cook time, buy a chicken as close to 4 pounds as possible – any larger and it may not fit in the Instant Pot.
Tender beef, aromatic spices and rice noodles all cook in the same pot in this easy soup. Garnished with fresh bean sprouts, basil, cilantro, jalapeño and shaved onions, it’s a great combo of hearty and fresh, all in one bowl. For even more heat and color, serve with sliced chiles over top.
Buffalo wing sauce is the signature ingredient that gives this casserole its tangy, fiery kick. Since this recipe uses cooked chicken, this is a delicious dish to whip up when you have leftover rotisserie chicken hanging out in the fridge.
If you’re looking for the appeal of a deep-fried appetizer without any frying at all, these just might become your go-to option. Panko makes the exotic vegetable fries deliciously crunchy, while the cool, creamy, cashew-based dip adds a fresh, bright note.
Corn and zucchini are sweet partners in golden fritters with a salty edge from tangy feta cheese. They’re great for nibbling with cocktails or for kicking off a family-style brunch. Remember that the more liquid you squeeze out of the grated zucchini, the crispier the fritters will be, so don’t skip that step.
This turkey is a labor of love, but the juicy results are totally worth the effort. Here, we use deboned meat, which cooks through faster than a whole bird, and the finished roll is easier to slice at the table. Ask your butcher to prepare it for you in advance, and request that they reserve about half of the bones as you’ll need them to make the gravy. A cranberry glaze is brushed on the turkey while roasting, while a homemade gravy gets drizzled on after serving.
Normally, gratins are layered horizontally so that the sliced vegetables lie flat in the dish. This recipe literally turns that on its side — the potatoes and artichokes are standing on their edges, so you get lots of crispy bits on top and a really fancy look that’s impressive on your holiday table.
Shishitos are usually mild, but every once in a while you get a firecracker. That’s what makes this dish really fun! Blistering the beans and peppers in a skillet gives them a nice charred taste without having to toss them on the grill or under the broiler. If you can’t find shishito peppers, try multicolored mini bell peppers instead.
Flatbreads have the same broad appeal as pizza but are ideal for dolling up with sophisticated flavors. Here, a tasty homemade dough gets topped with caramelized onions, sweet squash, zesty sausage and creamy goat cheese for an appetizer that’s definitely not every day.
This salad makes the most of in-season citrus and creates a pretty-hued side. If you can’t find blood oranges, substitute more navel oranges. The salad won’t be quite as colorful, but it will still be tangy- sweet and delicious.
It's important to have healthy snack options in your arsenal during the holidays. This combo of spices and mixed nuts is the perfect good-for-you nibble to have on hand.
Heirloom carrots are a great go-to veggie for a side dish because they look gorgeous plated; plus, they’re delicious simply roasted with olive oil or coconut oil. But when you top with maple syrup and cashew cream, these carrots become next-level!
Wrapped in buttery lettuce leaves, this sweet and savory chicken is packed with dynamic flavor for an irresistible dinner.
Grilling the cabbage imparts an unbeatable smokiness to this slaw. Here, the napa is topped with a spicy dressing using gut-friendly kimchi.
Scrubbing the beets and leaving the skins on means you don’t have to peel them later, and slicing helps them to roast faster. The fish adds a delicately smoky note, while the chickpeas help boost the protein level of this creative fall vegetable salad.
The heavy-rotation dinner.
