As springtime planting picks up, and the farm’s to-do list lengthens, cooking wholesome, filling meals can sometimes fall by the wayside. In the hustle and bustle of getting seeds into the ground and the excitement of watching newborn animals, the last thing on our minds is spending a bunch of time in the kitchen — especially cleaning up a sink full of dishes. And therein lies the beauty of the recipes that follow.

These dishes have a ton of flavor, and the only thing they lack is the amount of kitchen equipment involved in making them. After a day of mending fences, sowing corn, or delivering calves, it’s nice to be able to whip up something simple and delicious in no time. Here’s to happy planting and clean kitchens!
