The top 19 new recipes from 2019, with everything from hearty mains to easy sides (and so much kombucha!)
We’re in that weird week between Christmas and New Year’s where we’re not sure what to do with ourselves and time is confusion. Like, what day is it? And where did 2019 go?
So in the spirit of reflecting on the year, today I’m sharing 19 of the most popular new recipes from 2019!
You guys were all about the air fryer recipes this year, from the easy Air Fryer Veggies to the slightly-more-ambitious Buttermilk Fried “Chicken”.
And the kombucha! So much kombucha. After the wild popularity of our Kickass Kombucha guide, I decided to share a few fun flavors here on the blog, and you guys were here for it. So much so that I created a spinoff site that I’m so so excited to introduce to you called Brew Buch (brewbuch.com) (!!). This will be a place for deep diving into all the nitty gritty of home brewing kombucha.
Of course, we can’t forget the popsicles. 2019 marked the debut of my very first cookbook, For the Love of Popsicles! Launching a book was exhilarating and exhausting and gave me the chance to connect with you guys as we spent the summer making (and sharing photos on Insta of our) homemade popsicles! I’m already excited for next summer to come so we can do it all again 😍
But that’s not to say the year wasn’t filled with fails. Most recipes don’t come dropping out of the sky, perfectly balanced and ready to eat. But I failed exceptionally hard a few times, to include:
- The time I spilled eggnog everywhere (and it tasted so bad anyways that I decided to cut the whole recipe).
- The time I absent-mindedly threw away my memory card while on the phone. We flipped the house upside down looking for it, only to find it under a pile of moldy pesto pasta.
- The time I bragged about my “famous cookies” only for them to melt into sad, flat-as-a-crepe nothingness. (Still ate them, obvs).
Top Recipes of 2019
Here are the recipes that didn’t fail! In fact, quite the opposite. These are the top reader-favorite recipes of the year. Enjoy!
Our top new recipe of the year! You guys were loving your air fryers, and veggies seemed to be the most cooked thing in them!
A close second, this ridiculously crispy tofu is also cooked in an air fryer! Did Santa bring you one this year? (If not, go take advantage of those after-holiday sales!)
My easy version of Spanish rice, with beans to make it a complete protein!
We went low carb crazy this year, finally creating a cauliflower pizza crust that holds toppings.
I was up to my ears in potatoes when I was testing and shooting this one (but it sure was a tasty week!) Fries, chips, and baked potatoes all in one place.
This soup is so velvety smooth and creamy (you'd never guess that it's vegan!)
When you grate tempeh with a box grated and saute with spices, it becomes ridiculous close to taco meat!
This is a fun one I had been dying to make before getting my air fryer. And it did not disappoint!
I've been exploring Indian-inspired cuisine this year and am here for it. So much flavor packed into one bowl!
Another quick curry for busy weeknights!
Kombucha was in high demand this year, and this classic blueberry flavor was the most loved!
This list wouldn't be complete without popsicles! But amidst all the popsicle flavors, you guys loved this loaf pan popsicle hack the most.
It's like rice, except it's cauliflower. And it's like the rice from Chipotle, except you can make it at home.
Another addition to our arsenal of low carb recipes (because who doesn't love a good smoothie).
Obviously I had to make pizza in the air fryer (and it looks like I'm not the only one in love with it).
I couldn't have asked for more than to have readers who value hidden vegetables as much as I do 😍
It was the year of the popsicle, and you guys were ready to deep dive into it.
A classic kombucha flavor that's easy to make and produces super fizzy, delicious home brew!
Cooked in your air fryer (surprised?) and the perfect substitute for bacon!
