These are kinda brilliant.
Flour is tough to find in some places right now, but if you have it, these small-batch banana muffins are as easy as it gets. (Another great option? This banana-toffee cake.)
Stick with basic banana soft-serve — or add any favorite mix-ins like peanut butter, chocolate, or frozen berries.
Keep it simple (tomatoes, olive oil, salt) or add extras (garlic, herbs, Parm) if you have them.
Recipe: Pasta Sauce Made from Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
Roast partial heads or even stray cloves, depending on what you have left. (If you go for the former, plant them in a muffin tin so they stay upright in the oven.)
Because you never know when the craving will strike. (When it does, just add tequila and sweetener — and you're good to go!)
If you're feeling fancy, brush the dough with egg wash to make it bake up extra golden-brown.
Totally fine if they're a little wilted or droopy — you won't be able to tell once everything gets pureed.
Easiest-ever stirfry! A little salty, a little sweet, a little sour.
Drop them into dishes that call for oil as the first step — like stews, soups, or roasts.
Basil is the classic here, but you could also try parsley, cilantro, or even kale or spinach. Then drizzle pesto over pasta or meat, or swirl it into omelets.
Eggs + flour bind the mixture, so this works with any chopped veg: broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, potatoes, peppers, corn, etc. Then pair the fritters with a creamy dip!
Can't go wrong as long as you've got eggs + milk to bring everything together. Here's a frittata that uses up zucchini, tomatoes, and frozen corn.
Great things to toss in veggie broth: celery ends, carrot peelings, herb stems, Parmesan rinds, etc.
All you need is berries + lemon juice + sugar. Then use the jam to top toast or waffles, or swirl it into yogurt.
Easiest flavor booster ever — and if you can add any herbs, even better. Scoop the beans on toast, over salad greens, into pitas, or eat them solo.
Then drop them into recipes that call for a bit of liquid to add flavor at the end, like pasta sauces. Or use them to speed up the process when cooking down lots of greens.
You likely have all the pickling ingredients in your pantry already.
If you have popsicle molds, even better. If not, paper cups are great.
For the pizza base, try premade or homemade dough, English muffins, or naan. Just about any toppings work too: crumbled sausage, olives, peppers, etc.

Here's Ina Garten's version.
This single-serve version is cooked in the microwave — but you could also scale it up or simmer it on the stovetop.
It's packed with protein and comes together in just a few minutes.
In this case: sundried tomatoes and canned white beans. If you're not into kale, swap in spinach, broccolini, or cabbage.
Because let's be real: Your microwave has probably been working harder than usual over the past few weeks. (Mine has!)
