As the temperatures continue to drop and the nights draw in, there’s nothing better than sitting back, relaxing and getting cosy in the comfort of our own homes. This year, we won’t all be able to go out and enjoy meals at our favourite restaurants due to coronavirus restrictions, so why not prepare some delicious dishes for you and your family to share instead? Here are some of the tastiest winter warming recipes for you to try over the season.
Stew and dumplings
Does anything beat rich stew and fluffy dumplings on a cold, dull evening? This gorgeous recipe – featuring braising steak, carrots, leeks, swede, red wine, thyme and parsley – will warm you right down to your toes.
Hearty, chunky soups
If celeriac, bacon and barley soup sounds right up your street, you’ll love this delightful lunch or dinner option. Filled with the lovely aromas of rosemary, smoky bacon and sweet onion, it’s the comfort food you need during winter. Perfect for freezing, you can batch cook to warm up and enjoy throughout the month, too.
Toad in the hole
Ideal for both the adults and the kids, toad in the hole is a classic dish that can’t be forgotten about this winter. Made with chipolata sausages and a simple batter, everyone will be happy at dinner time when you serve this up.
Lentil and cauliflower curry
Are you looking for an earthy spice pot that is low in fat and calories? If so, you’ve found it here with this lentil and cauliflower curry recipe. Simply stir in your favourite coconut yogurt and serve with delicious brown rice.
Over Christmas, you are probably going to be looking for classic Christmas Day recipes, too. Jamie Oliver’s turkey recipe is a great place to start and includes sumptuous ingredients such as clementine.
This tasty vegetarian bake makes for a wonderful Christmas dinner alternative. Packed with roasted butternut squash, chestnuts, mushrooms and mixed nuts, it’s perfect to pop in the middle of the table for the whole family to enjoy – even the ones that eat meat!
With delicious food and drink to pick up, Christmas presents to buy and cards to send, it’s easy to get carried away over the festive period, which is why it’s essential that you assess your finances accordingly before, during and after one of the busiest periods of the year.
