Looking for New Meals to Start the New Year? These 7 Recipes Will Get You Started
1. Air Fryer Veggie Nuggets
We’re saying it: 2021 was the year of the air fryer. The gadget brought us viral TikTok hits like crispy green beans, accordion potatoes and pasta chips. What’s in store for this year, you ask? As home cooks spend even more time in their kitchens experimenting with air fryers, we’re getting ready for extra-inventive, dippable foods, like these air-fried broccoli and carrot nuggets. Bonus: You and your kids will love them.
5. Instant Pot Sesame Chicken
Cooking up your own version of takeout favorites is always a good idea. To ensure this homemade version of sesame chicken hits the spot, you’ve got to nail the sauce. Start with Kroger® Brand soy sauce, then add ketchup, water, light brown sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and as much sriracha as you can handle.
6. Salmon Salad Lettuce Wraps
2022 is the year we stop sleeping on canned salmon. Did you know it’s an easy way to add beneficial omega-3 fatty acids to your diet? We love the celery, bell pepper and olives in this version, but you can easily swap out for other veggie favorites for an easy Saturday lunch option.
