Winter warmers

Here are a few of the wintery dishes that we don't often get to eat here in Townsville - but we've become acquainted with them this year!


A stewish mix up of zucchini, carrot, and purple sweet potato, in a tomato & cumin sauce. With some guac, because winter is also avocado season up here.

Hearth veggie & brown lentil soup. This had zucchini and carrot and sweet potato and white potato and capsicum and corn and maybe other things. And I made a quick batch of biscuits (American style) with teff flour to eat with the soup. They were maybe the best part of dinner.

A green curry, full of veggies and some pawpaw - the sweetness of the fruit is a good contrast to the spicy curry.


Mac & Peas! Cheesy, nutritional yeasty sauce poured over macaroni and peas and baked until the top is crunchy, served up with some roasted corn and a garlic bread zucchini.


This is "Chickpea Broccolikash", or a slightly bastardized version of Chickpea Paprikash from Urban Vegan. We didn't have capsicum so we used broccoli instead, but I wouldn't let Andy call it by its rightful name. We also didn't feel like making spatzle, so we served on noodles. It was delicious anyways.


And to wrap it all up, some lime self-saucing pudding. This is another adapted recipe, this time from ZuckerBaby. Her recipe called for lemon, but we had a fridge full of limes. It was so delicious - a light and fluffy cake with a sweet-tart pudding-y glaze all over it. We assumed it would be best warm, so ate it all straight from the oven.

Roasted corn! Do you just throw it whole in the oven?

Lime self-serving pudding? Wow! All of these meals look wow-ing though (except the macaroni cheese :P) - a great selection.

Mac and cheese with peas & a side of corn is definitely one of my cold weather favourites.

Hannah - husk and all, straight into the oven. Andy prefers it on the raw side, but I like when it gets a little charry.

Lentil soup was always winter food when we were kids, although the dirty gelatinous stuff out of cans. Time to revisit i think!

And agreed on mac and cheese and peas = awesome

This all looks so warming and hearty. Majorly craving mac & cheese (I love it with cauliflower!).

These dishes look so lovely and comforting!
