Our Favorite Cozy Comfort Foods

The most difficult part of winter is certainly this post-holiday season—it’s all of the chill, but none of the warmth that accompanies holiday festivities. While the cold may get us down on our daily commute (or even just grabbing the morning paper), it’s the perfect excuse to get completely cozy indoors! Hot, nourishing, and guaranteed to make your home smell a little bit like heaven, here are our favorite comfort foods for winter.

  • A perfect way to kick off a cold winter morning, this cinnamon banana oatmeal is sure to warm you from the inside out. (recipe)

  • Fragrant and chock-full of garlicky goodness, these roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts make for a delicious side dish—and the leftovers are easily reheated for a comforting lunch at the office! (recipe)

  • Hearty and nutrient-packed, this quinoa and sweet potato chili pairs well with cornbread or tortilla chips. Ideal for cozy nights in and Super Bowl parties! (recipe)

  • Don’t let the long ingredient list intimidate you! This lasagna is well worth the effort, and it might just be the best you’ve ever had. (recipe)

  • Hate to cook? This slow cooker tomato basil soup will be right up your alley. Just put all of the ingredients in the crock-pot before work, and come home to a tasty, hot dinner. Round out the meal with a side salad and some garlic bread for dipping. (recipe)

  • Shepherd’s pie is perhaps the most classic of comfort foods. We love this vegan version that skips the ground meat, but if you’re looking for a traditional recipe, try this one from Alton Brown. (recipe)
