To keep you warm in the winter months- 14 easy healthy winter dinner recipes the whole family will love!
Is there any better time of the year for cooking than in winter? Not for me. I yearn for the cooler months so I can quietly potter around the kitchen and practice some slow cooking techniques.
It is a season for warming comfort foods – braises, slow cooker meals, casseroles and stews. Slow cooking suits cheaper cuts of meat and provides a great opportunity to increase your vegetable intake.
Here is a collection of 14 healthy winter dinner recipes from the Compass & Fork website. Most are braises but there are some wonderful, South East Asian dishes to spice up your winter as well.
This compilation features:
- vegetarian dishes;
- a range of stuffed meat and vegetable dishes where the meat is “just another ingredient” along with the vegetables:
- slow cooker dishes; and
- meat and fish dishes, where the meat and fish is the “star of the show”.
Within the list below the country the recipe is from is provided as reference. You can find a full 3-4 course dinner menu for each country we have featured on Compass & Fork if you would like to expand dinner to a night of entertaining family and friends.
