Winter means being cozy. And while you’re wrapped up against the chill, there’s one thing that will make this time of year even better: comfort food. Here are some winter comfort foods that will fill you up and make your tummy happy.
Delicious and Filling
There’s just something about hearty winter food that makes it satisfying in a primal way. They call it comfort food for a reason. It’s hearty, stick-to-your-ribs fare that’s designed to be calorie-rich in order to help you get through the long, cold nights of winter. Sitting down to a nice bowl of stew and dumplings while the snow falls outside and ice accumulates on the eaves really makes you appreciate the warmth and coziness of your home and time in it.
Comfort food means different things to different people. For those in the South or Southeastern United States, that might look like chicken and dumplings or pot roast. But comfort food doesn’t have to be limited to that. Instead, it can also mean stretching your boundaries and creating something new. Lasagna is one of those things that you can find on the menu in an Italian restaurant or in the frozen foods section of the supermarket. But have you ever tried making it yourself? Here’s a recipe for a vegetarian lasagna that will be — as the kids say — absolutely bomb.

It’s good to push the boundaries and try something new, but you also need the tried and true comfort foods that you know everyone will dig in. Regardless of what you’re cooking, have a great, filling, and safe winter!
