Whether or not the weather is atrocious, cold and flu season is here. Unfortunately, January and February boast the highest chances of catching an airborne illness and feeling under the weather is almost unavoidable.
When your family is stuck indoors and under the covers, food can provide the comfort and healing to get everyone back on their feet! Here are some of our favorite cozy recipes.
Simple Pumpkin Soup
This recipe from the Minimalist Baker is hearty and filling, and completely vegan! We love the sesame kale topping which adds a surprising twist to a cold-weather favorite.
Butternut Squash Soup
If Pumpkin Spice Lattes has a popular counterpart, this would be it! Make this soup in a blender, and substitute olive oil for butter if you're looking for a vegan option. Maple syrup and cloves add some delicious complex flavors.
Hearty Vegetable Soup
Simple Green Moms were onto something when they came up with this recipe that combines rich vegetables, legumes, and a hearty broth for a feel-good dinner the whole family will enjoy. Substitute the vegetable broth for chicken broth for a vegan/vegetarian rendition.
Vegan Tortilla Soup
Spicy is a cure-all for congestion (get the tissues ready)! We love this recipe from Oh She Glows! She even adds chia seeds for an extra kick of healthy.
