Chicken Burrito Bowl
This burrito bowl recipe is very easy to follow and even more delicious. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. The sweet and citrus flavors from the sauces mix very well with the savory and spicy flavors of the chicken and grain, and the textures from all the foods work very well together.
This recipe is also very inclusive to dietary needs such as gluten-free and dairy-free, as you can simply add or take away certain ingredients and you’ll still end up with an amazing dish.–Evan Z.
With a few gorgeous kohlrabi and pears on hand from the farmer’s market, I was thrilled to come across this recipe that uses both in their natural state! I loved the combination of the sweet cubes of ripe, tender pear with the crunchy texture of the kohlrabi and the splash of the tart yet sweet vinaigrette.
I had some peppery arugula on hand, so that is the green I used for the base of the salad. I highly recommend this salad! It was lovely as a side to a quick-and-spicy shrimp-and-peanut stir fry over rice noodles.–Anna S.
This salmon and cherry tomatoes dish is such a nice recipe! Made for a quick, easy dinner full of bright flavors. Will make this again.
After reading the testers’ reviews, I felt free to follow some ideas so we could make this with the ingredients at home. We were short on tomatoes and fresh basil, but it came out great, although we would have enjoyed the full amount of tomatoes and the basil. My garlic browned quickly (guessing my oil was too hot), so I pulled it out of the pan before blistering the tomatoes.
Tossed our tomato mixture with some blanched snow peas and served it with orzo. A healthy meal on the table in under 25 minutes from when I turned the oven on to preheat.–Mary Joan
This is the best veggie chili I have ever made (and I’ve been cooking vegetarian since the late ’70s.) It’s hearty, rich, and fragrant. Love the combo of cinnamon and unsweetened cocoa.
This recipe is a staple in my home now, and I’ll definitely check out her cookbook.–Randi K.
