THE RECIPES
Smoky Tofu and Quinoa Vegetable Chili by @rachelgurjar

Winter nights call for big bowls of hearty stew! A little liquid smoke brings extra depth of flavor and quinoa gives it body without becoming too heavy.

Feedfeed Tip Don’t have liquid smoke? Add smoked paprika to impart a similarly smoky flavor.
Perfect Chicken Breast by @jakecohen

You'll never have to eat dry chicken breasts again! Searing the chicken on the stovetop first locks in moisture before finishing in the oven.
