Anti-inflammatory Vegan Soup — Take That, January.

Whether it’s actually medically beneficial, who knows? But it is warm, cozy and packed with vegetables, and that’s really all you were after on a cold winter night anyway. Dice up four cloves of garlic, an onion and as much ginger as you can stand, then heat olive oil in the bottom of a large pot. Add a diced red bell pepper, some jalapenos (two, unless you have a death wish), carrots, celery, a couple cans of chickpeas, green beans and a head of cauliflower cut into florets. Throw in two tablespoons of turmeric — warning: turmeric stains your pot, your clothes, your floor, everything — along with as much salt and pepper as you like. Cook about 10 minutes, until the vegetables are softened and smell amazing, then add a can of coconut milk and some vegetable stock to simmer for half an hour. Right before serving, you can garnish with cilantro or sriracha to really clear the sinuses.

Yogurt in an Instant Pot — Breakfast All Week.

If you, like some of us, got an Instant Pot over the holidays, it turns out you can … make your own yogurt? Hear us out, this is not a labor-intensive Gwyneth Paltrow thing: Cook a gallon of milk in the Instant Pot for 20 minutes until the milk hits 180 degrees, keep it there for 5-10 minutes, then let it cool to about 110 degrees. Whisk in a half cup of plain yogurt, then set the Instant Pot to “Yogurt” and just leave it for 8 hours. Or 24 hours. However many hours you want to, honestly, but the longer you cook it, the less you’ll have to strain it afterward. Later, seal it in whatever cute containers you have around and maybe label each jar with notes like “MONDAY BREAKFAST, DO NOT STEAL.” A gallon of milk should make more than enough for one person for a week, so you can sparingly share with anyone you think deserves it.
