Make: Stir Fry with Bok Choy and Mushrooms

If you've never really been sure about how to prepare bok choy, this stir-fry is for you. Sarah's dish is incredibly simple, with just the right touches of flavor from ginger, garlic, and rice vinegar to make the main ingredients shine with their natural goodness. By itself, this is a great side dish. With rice, it makes a perfect lunch or light dinner.

Make: Four-Ingredient Tomato Sauce

Once you've made Marcella Hazan's velvety tomato sauce (featured on the kitchn), you won't need to buy the bottled stuff anymore. It's a really simple sauce for the weeknights when you don't feel like doing much else, but don't want to sacrifice the flavor and comfort of a homemade sauce. And, you can easily veganize it with vegan butter.
