Winter is right around the corner, even with this autumnal sun still beating on, the days are inevitably drawing in and the temperature is starting to dip (sigh). But when it comes to braving colder, there’s nothing better than good home comforts like a steaming bowl of autumnal soup or stew to warm you up from the inside out.
Now that summer and its inevitable spending on music festivals, beer gardens, and eating out are over, this is the ideal time to save some cash, and get cooking some simple recipes at home. If you like to cook seasonally, winter root vegetables like squash, carrots, and potatoes always go wonderfully in so many stews.
Whether you're vegan and getting bored of the same old recipes, flexitarian brushing up on your plant-based cooking skills, or simply trying out Meat Free Mondays and need something comforting to take you through autumn, these tasty stews will keep you fuelled and cosy all season. From aromatic peanut stews, to hearty tagines and casseroles perfect for curling up on the sofa, you can’t go wrong with a good one-pot stew.
Goodbye light, crisp summer salads, soggy sandwiches, and popsicles, it’s time to wave in the winter warmers.
