Once the winter comes we need hearty, comforting, and warming recipes to help us through the winter. Braised meats, soups, stews, and slow-cooker recipes are among the ones that we turn to. Soups and stews are great because they don’t take that long to cook and they are dishes that will keep you feeling warm and full all day. Make sure you don’t eat the canned kind this winter. Instead, try some of these recipes to get you through the winter. You can go with a creamy and rich soup with a parsnip base or you can make something lighter with chickpeas and greens. Soups and stews definitely get us through the winter, which is why we made it the theme of this week’s SWAT.
