Soups are a staple during the winter months. Since soups are hot and have to be eaten slowly, they’ll warm you up while helping you feel full. This alternative to your favorite Mexican dish has everything you want in a soup, plus the crunch and spice of a taco. Make it with ground beef or turkey, and top it off with tortilla chips to put dinner on the table in under 30 minutes.
This creamy skillet meal will keep you just as warm, while giving you something to chew on. What’s great about this dish is that you can cook everything in the same skillet, reducing the amount of dishes you have to wash. Add some spinach to the garlicky, buttery mixture to get your veggies in, all in one dish. Serve it over pasta, and you’ll have yourself a winning family recipe.
For busy weeknights, this ‘set it and forget it’ kind of dish will give you the time to complete your other tasks around the house while it’s cooking. Hooray for multitasking! This meatless curry is also great if you’re trying to incorporate more vegetarian meals into your weekly rotation. Enjoy this full-bodied, protein-packed dish with a side of rice or quinoa, and then freeze leftovers (if there are any!) for when you’re really in a pinch.
If you love pasta, but are always looking for a healthier option, get ready for a healthy alternative filled with wintery comfort. This recipe uses whole wheat pasta, which is tossed with a creamy cauliflower sauce and baked under a blanket of sizzling cheese. Is your mouth watering yet?
Our list of winter recipes wouldn’t be complete without this classic. There’s just something about beef stew that brings so much comfort on chilly nights. Maybe it’s the aroma of the hearty vegetables, spices, and beef mingling in perfect harmony. All you’ll need for this easy recipe is a good knife, a heavy pot, and patience. It will smell so good that you won’t want to wait!
