The best thing about winter, in my humble opinion, is the chance to indulge in those oozy, braisey, roasty, earthy comfort foods that are plate-licking good and leave you feeling all toasty inside.
They don't have to be ridiculously calorific to be tasty either. There are so many fabulous vegetables to choose from at this time of year in the most gorgeous rich colours. I love seeing them piled up at the market in all of their deep purple, orange, red and green glory! There is something very motherly and Maggie Beer-ish about cooking at this time of year and that suits us perfectly.
Here are a few recipes that can be thrown together for a quick(ish) mid-week meal to warm and nourish the soul.
