 Think of this recipe when you have a crisper full of vegetables that you want to use up: It has tons of flavour and is ready in no time.

So you’re hosting a winter potluck and don’t want a repeat of last year when three guests arrived with mixed bean casseroles. While there is a lot to love about a potluck (the main thing being you must only prepare one dish but get access to many), but let’s be honest, the hodgepodge of a free-form potluck is ripe for sending guests home with indigestion. So this year, channel your inner control freak and assign your guests the recipes or ideas you would like them to bring such as the ones we’ve provided below. Then pick up a few crusty baguettes and a few bottles of wine (assuming guests will also BYOB) and set the scene for a cozy winter soiree.
