Comfort food is both universal and specific. Particular dishes connect us to our memories, family, culture, and community. We picked a few favorites that always manage to make us feel a little better. We hope you take a moment to slow down and enjoy a nourishing bowl of congee, some plump and pillowy tortellini, a really good chocolate chip cookie—or anything that warms you.
Countertop combination cookers don’t get enough plant-based action (and they can do wonders with staples like grains and beans). We used the Instant Pot Duo Nova to make two super cozy and satisfying plant-based recipes—hearty chickpeas in a tomatoey cacciatore and a vegan mushroom barley stew with miso.
