10 Recipes That Use Up That Jar of Applesauce — Recipes from The Kitchn

I love to make a big pot of applesauce after a day of apple picking — there's something just so satisfying about its simplicity. However, after a few days of eating it from a bowl, dusted with cinnamon, I tend to grow tired of the snack. Luckily, there is a whole lot more you can do with applesauce. It's an incredibly useful ingredient in the kitchen, particularly in baking, as it adds moisture and can be a wholesome substitute for eggs, oil, or butter. Here are 10 recipes that prove it.

I love orzo — its plump, chewy grains so much like rice, but on a grander scale and with the tenderness of pasta — but I don't cook with it often enough, which seems silly, given how fast it can be. So I mused over what I would really like to eat right now and came up with all the fall vegetable flavors. Onions, garlic, mushrooms, sweet potato — preferably dark and caramelized, built from the ground up in one big skillet, browning, caramelizing, and sautéeing until you're left with a big pile of chewy orzo and dark, delicious fall vegetables.

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: Creamy Vegan Mushroom Lasagna — Quick and Easy Vegetarian Dinners

I've definitely enjoyed some pretty great plant-based lasagnas at restaurants where the chef swap in vegetables for the noodles. But when I make lasagna at home, I want it to be as close as possible to the kind I grew up with. It has to be saucy and hearty, it has to spend some serious time in the oven, and, most importantly, it has to have noodles! This recipe checks all of those boxes and is just as delicious as the "real thing."
