5 Perfect Winter Recipes

Warm Up Your Winter

During the winter months, eating a warm and filling meal is comforting. The chilly outdoor weather makes a warm soup or simple meal appealing. Although personal tastes vary significantly, some winter recipes are a favorite choice to warm up after coming in from skiing, making a snowman or enjoying the outdoor activities that are only possible during the winter.

SWEET POTATO AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

Soup is always comforting during the winter months, particularly when the soup is creamy and a little sweet. A sweet potato and butternut squash soup is an excellent choice due to the creamy consistency and the flavors that come from the potato. It is best served with a slice of garlic bread or garlic and lemon bread.

Enjoy eating the soup after a day of skiing or sledding with loved ones.

GNOCCHI WITH CHARD AND WHITE BEANS

Spending a day skiing or engaged in a physical activity results in feeling hungry. Gnocchi is a winter favorite because it is warm, filling and offers several variations for individual tastes. During the winter months, a gnocchi with chard and white beans is an excellent choice due to the high nutrient content and the filling beans. Serve the meal shortly after removing it from the skillet.

PERSIAN LAMB WITH COUSCOUS

A Persian lamb tagine is a hot and slightly spiced dish that warms the body. Since the dish is made with cumin and cinnamon, it has a slightly spicy flavor that is ideal on a cold winter day. There is also a sweet flavor associated with apricots and dates that add to the complexity of the dish. It is served with couscous.

TURKEY TENDERLOIN AND CRANBERRY SAUCE

The winter season is the perfect time to enjoy eating turkey. Even after the holidays pass, turkey tenderloin is a comforting food. Enjoy the turkey with fresh mashed potatoes and a side of steamed or cooked vegetables. For a sweet and tangy addition to the meal, top the turkey tenderloin with cranberry-shallot sauce. The cranberry sauce adds a touch of flavor that makes the meal comforting. Make the sauce a bit sweeter by adding brown sugar or make it a little tangy with a little less sugar.

BEEF STEW WITH CREAM BISCUITS

A classic winter recipe is beef stew. The thick stew offers a filling and warm dish that is perfect for a winter day.

Comforting winter meals offer a chance to sit down with loved ones and enjoy time together. During a ski trip or vacation, visit a North Conway restaurant for a taste of home that is perfect for the cold winter weather.
