It’s mid – february and it’s still the dead of winter around here.
One way I like to stay happy is to play and have fun in the kitchen…. because good food is good comfort food. And where there is good comfort food – there is Love.
February is the toughest month to pull through, thank goodness it’s the shortest month. (I think they totally planned that for a reason). And probably why Valentine’s Day got thrown in there too… just to add some excitement to the never-ending season of winter. I find I crave all kinds of dishes at this time of the year, one day it’s the freshness for Spring and I go all out with fresh greens and crispy radishes, but then I have days where I crave good hot meals that nourish my body and soul and bring the family together for comfort and love around our round kitchen flavour. I also pay attention to the cold and flu season – it’s still easy to catch something, because even +1 celsius temperatures can confuse your head and you think you can forgo the hot wooly hat. (A huge mistake on my part, which is probably why I’m still recuperating after a cold with a nasty cough started two days ago). So healing foods such as onions and garlic and ginger have been upped in all the foods we prepare around here, to keep the cold bug away.
Please join in the fun and share your favourite recipe you are craving right now! Is is wintery soul food or is it a jump into Spring? Anything goes ;) Just a reminder we’re focusing on plant-based, egg-free, dairy-free and meat-free recipes as well as gluten or wheat free dishes. Some exceptions apply such as using honey or ancient grains that have gluten like spelt and kamut which are very healthy. Recipes should be all natural, with no refined sugar and with no processed ingredients, no preservatives or artificial colours of flavours and organic as much as possible. Also, I don’t think recipes ever get dated, so please feel free to dust off some old goodies from the archives and share them again ;)
