Tomato rasam, also known as the "sniffle-kicking" soup, is a tomato-based soup from the south of India. There's enough garlic in a bowl of it to kill a cold (and several vampires); the pepper, asafetida, cumin, turmeric, and tomato will help clear up any inflammation in the sinuses. Leftover soup will keep in the freezer for up to a month, so don't hesitate to make extras for those days you feel a cold coming on.

Recipe: Butter-Roasted Sweet Potatoes — Quick and Easy Weeknight Sides

(Image credit: Joe Lingeman/The Kitchn)

You've had roasted sweet potatoes before, so you've had them all, right? I used to think the exact same thing until I learned a technique for butter-roasting thick slices of sweet potato until they turned from hard tubers to almost butter themselves.

Popularized by the blog Dessert for Two, this technique for butter-roasted sweet potatoes — dubbed melting sweet potatoes by Christina over at Dessert for Two — roasts the potatoes until they are a dark amber on the outside, creating a layer of deeply caramelized sweet potato that just barely holds the soft, buttery insides together. She serves this with an incredible maple pecan sauce, but we think they are perfection all on their own with a fat pinch of salt to finish them off. This recipe won't let you think of roasted sweet potatoes the same way ever again.
