2022 was a lot of things, but one thing we can say for certain: It was veggie central. Seven of our 10 most popular recipes on the site were vegetarian, chock-full of tofu, chickpeas, and greens. The runaway hit, Sticky and Spicy Baked Cauliflower, was the reader favorite. Picture: a crackly crust, no deep frying required, with a glossy gochujang glaze. It’s a new weeknight classic that we’ll be making well into the new year.
Beyond that, we have plenty of noodles, and even a gourd pretending to be noodles (spaghetti squash, now in baked ziti form). And don’t fret: There are sweets too. Read on for the recipes our readers loved most this year. Then check out these dishes—and so many more—in the new Epicurious iOS app.
