10 comforting vegetarian and vegan recipes for winter

Sweater weather has arrived and we all know winter calls for warming comfort food. To make things more snuggy, we've decided to share our favourite hearty recipes, so you can keep warm and enjoy delicious meals during the cooler days.

Mushroom Bourguignon
A delicious hearty vegetarian stew, it's a great alternative to the reknowned French beef bourguignon. Is there anything better on a cold evening than a plate full of healthy and warm goodness? We think not. And trust us, even meat lovers will love this recipe.

Simple Mushroom Pie 
You say molten cheese, we say yes! This surprisingly easy-to-make pie is an edible masterpiece. Delight your guests with the flaky, crispy pastry and dreamy filling.

Baked Feta with Tomatoes and Spaghetti
Pasta is always a good idea, and luckily for you this recipe is simple, fresh and delicious. Don’t wait too long – bring some Italian sunshine into your home.

Cauliflower Cheese and Leek Gnocchi Gratin
Gnocchi submerged in a cheesy cauliflower and leek sauce is our winter staple. The combination of the cauliflower and leek creates a velvety creaminess and takes this dish to the next level. It’s perfect on its own or served with a green salad.

Creamy millet porridge and red wine roasted rhubarb (Vegan)
When the temperature drops, and the mornings are cold, we recommend replacing your smoothie with a porridge. This one will warm your cockles and keep you full for hours. What’s not to love about it?

All you need is love... or more chocolate. Treat yourself to these dark chocolate cupcakes and discover aquafaba meringue at the same time – it’s a great to egg substitute, for those who are vegan or have egg allergies.
