There’s nothing like a bowl of steaming chicken soup when you’re feeling under the weather, or even simply when fall turns to winter. But we wanted to transform this soup, often made with white rice or pasta and lacking in veggies, into a comforting, nutrient-dense meal.

Espinacas is a traditional tapas dish found in the southern Spanish region of Andalucia consisting of tender stewed chickpeas, delicate wilted spinach, and bold North African-influenced spices.
We love pound cake and we love chocolate, but the combination is often a disappointment. That’s because most recipes simply add chocolate to a standard pound cake recipe, which mars its finely tuned texture and usually produces lacklustre chocolate flavour.
Vegetable curries are a great hearty choice for a vegetarian meal. Filled with bold flavours and a good variety of vegetables, they can be healthy, satisfying, and delicious—as long as the vegetables are well cooked and the flavours are balanced.
Ragu can be made from any meat or combination of meats, but the earthiness of a pure pork ragu is undeniably attractive—and great comfort food.
Centuries ago, focaccia began as a by-product: When bakers needed to gauge the heat of the wood-fired oven—focaccia stems from focolare and means “fireplace”—they would tear off a swatch of dough, flatten it, drizzle it with olive oil, and pop it into the hearth to bake as an edible oven thermometer.
Chicken enchiladas offer a rich and complex combination of flavours and textures, but traditional cooking methods can be tedious.
We wanted a more streamlined recipe for chicken enchiladas—one that utilized our slow cooker to make the filling and that enabled the enchiladas to be quickly assembled and finished in the oven.
If you think oatmeal comes in a packet, think again.
They know about oatmeal in Ireland and Scotland, where whole-grain, steel-cut oats are popular. Yes, these slightly chewy oats take longer to cook than old-fashioned rolled oats (and way longer than instant oats in a packet), but the results are so much better.
Macaroni and cheese has always been on my “must-explore” list. It’s just eaten too often in this country for us to ignore it. Kids in particular say yes to macaroni and cheese when they turn up their noses at everything else. Unfortunately, it’s the boxed version, complete with orange cheese powder, that’s made most often.
