Our 20 most popular recipes of 2023

It’s been a big year here at the Washington Post Food section. We released the second edition of our Plant Powered newsletter with a new batch of delicious, vegetable-centered recipes from cookbook author Hetty McKinnon, conducted even more in-depth taste tests of your favorite store-bought foods such as marinara sauce and boxed cake, published deeply reported stories about some of the biggest news in the food and dining world, spotlighted the best restaurants in the D.C. area for all occasions with new filtering options, unveiled some of our most beautiful Thanksgiving and holiday cookies sections to date, and, oh yeah, completely relaunched our Recipes experience, making it easier than ever to browse through and cook from our archives of over 10,000 tested recipes. NBD.

Amid all these exciting projects and changes, we’ve also still been publishing fabulous new recipes every week, and there were a few in particular that caught people’s eyes. These are our readers’ favorite recipes from 2023, an eclectic collection of veggie-forward dinners, one-pan meals, hearty soups, simple baking projects and TikTok- and TV-inspired dishes. The one thing they all have in common, though, is how delicious they are. Find all the recipes below, and if you don’t see your own favorite, you can search for it in our recipe archives.
