The Best Recipes from 2015
These are the 12 (plus a bonus) best recipes on The Endless Meal in 2015. From reader favorites to personal favorites, you won't be disappointed.
Welcome to 2016, the first post of the year and one of my favorite yearly rituals. I love looking back at all the recipes that have been posted over the past year and choosing the top twelve. This year I couldn't narrow it down, so you get a bonus.
Some of the recipes (like the Sweet and Spicy Paleo Chicken and the Vegan Purple Sweet Potato Pie) spread like wildfire on social media and quickly became reader favorites. Others (like The Best Green Goddess Dressing and Easy Butter Chicken) are my personal favorite, go-to recipes.
Of the 105 recipes posted to The Endless Meal in 2015, these are the ones you definitely don't want to miss out on. Starting with one of my weeknight favs.
This quick and easy spaghetti recipe is one of my favorite go-to dinners. The sauce is super tasty and can be served over veggie noodles, gluten-free pasta, or regular pasta. It's a healthy no-brainer for those nights when you don't feel like cooking.
This is the most popular recipe on the blog in 2015, and it's easy to understand why. These chicken fingers are easy to make, healthy, and are a true family favorite. If you haven't made this recipe yet make sure to put it on your list.
The popularity of this recipe surprised me. I tend to think of it as a “clear out the fridge” recipe. I almost didn't post it as I thought it was too basic. It's an easy and delicious way to use up any veggies that you have laying around in your fridge that are starting to look a little limp.
I could eat a whole head of this cauliflower and call it dinner. It has tons of flavor and is easy to make. It gets extra bonus points for looking pretty.
This recipe took off this past Thanksgiving. Many of you posted your purple sweet potato pie pics on Instagram for me to see – love when you do that!
This is still my number one favorite salad dressing. I could eat it by the spoonful. It also happens to be full of good-for-you, healthy ingredients.
These little snack balls are full of healthy ingredients that pack an energy-boosting punch when you need it. They're easy to make, keep for a long time in your fridge (even longer in the freezer), and pack well.
Want to know what the best chicken wing recipe is? This. Yep, this is it. They're crispy, sweet and garlicky and totally delicious. They're also baked in the oven, but you'd never know it.
This recipe goes over as well at a summer BBQ as it does beside a winter roast. The easy to make beans are sweet, smoky and delicious.
This is the butter chicken recipe I've been making for ages, and you'll be surprised at how easy it is to make. For a vegetarian version, you can substitute the chicken with paneer or medium-soft tofu.
This tasty and warm breakfast will see you through all the chilly winter mornings ahead. Make extra of the crumble and dig into this morning meal all week long.
If you haven't yet added this soup to your cooking repertoire I encourage (beg!) you to right away. It's warm, hearty, and packed full of flavor. I like to make a double batch to have some around for days.
