10 deliciously comforting winter recipes to warm your soulMay 23, 2023
While comfort food is welcome all year ‘round, it truly finds its home in winter when cosy meals are needed to shield you from the cold, dark weather. However, with winter comes a yearning to do less – to pop your slippers on, wrap yourself up in a blanket, curl up on the couch, and avoid slaving away over the stove for hours. The result? Eating the same old easy spag bol and soups, over and over and over again. Boring!
Now don’t get us wrong, we love a good bowl of soup, but when you’re on day four of liquid veg, they stop tasting so good. But easy doesn’t need to mean boring. That’s why we created the Winter Cravings collection. It’s full of easy recipes and hearty meals, so you can enjoy the ultimate winter comfort food without all the usual effort.
Our delicious dishes are cosy, comforting and convenient, and they’ll keep you inspired throughout winter. With simple recipes and big flavours, you’ll be able to whip up a variety of warming meals with ease, enjoying something new every night. And the best part? They all use seasonal produce, so you can enjoy the freshest ingredients the season has to offer.
Without further ado, here are some of our favourite Winter Cravings recipes for you to enjoy this season.
