2. Buttercup Squash Soup with Coconut and Curry

Buttercup squash and kabocha squash are almost identical, so make this soup with either variety. They're starchier than butternut, but not as dense as sweet potato, with an earthy, slightly sweet flavor. Recipe here.

8. Chicken Khao Soi

Ditte Isager / bonappetit.com

Homemade curry paste is what makes this recipe really special, but if you're in a bind — or if your grocery store doesn't stock the ingredients and you don't feel like taking a trip to the Asian market — this red curry paste ($2.50) is an OK shortcut. Recipe here.

9. Miso Ramen with Crispy Shredded Pork and Burnt Garlic Sesame Oil

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt / seriouseats.com

Disclaimer: making proper ramen at home is a) super delicious and rewarding, and b) a serious project. This recipe is a quicker version of The Food Lab's tonkotsu ramen broth, which involves boiling the crap out of chicken bones and pig trotters for upwards of 12 hours. Still, it's not exactly simple. Recipe here.
