Contrary to popular belief, comfort food can be healthy. Don’t believe us? Here are five of our favourite winter warmer recipes to keep you toasty throughout the colder months.

Whilst potatoes are the perfect ingredient to keep you warm over winter, they are often paired with cheese or doused in oil. Although most of us enjoy a splurge over the Christmas period, it is important to know that there are healthy alternatives to our winter favourites that are low in calories and equally as delicious.

Mashed potato with kale and sundried tomato

Our Mediterranean take on this family favourite is the perfect side dish to steamed fish or grilled chicken breast. The sundried tomatoes not only add an abundance of flavour, but are an important source of vitamin C and iron, which we could all benefit from during the darker days. Along with the kale’s protein and fibre, these additions turn mash into a healthy alternative.

Leek and potato soup

Perfect for a light lunch, this soup is easy to make and the ideal desk meal. Full of antioxidants, this winter warmer is packed with flavour and nutrition. Pair with rye bread to make it extra filling.

Low fat oven roastie cubes

Cooked in vegetable stock, this low fat take on roast potatoes is a great alternative for those watching their weight during the festive season. These flavour packed roasties are sure to keep you warm as temperatures decline.

Spiralised potato burger bun

Gluten and guilt free, our take on the classic burger is sure to satisfy those cravings on a winter evening. Putting an original twist on the usual burger bun, our ‘buntatoes’ use spiralised potatoes to create the perfect fast food fix.  Pair with a veggie burger or chicken breast for maximum nutrition.

Smoky prawn, pepper and new potato stew

Bringing smoky Spanish flavours into winter, this hearty dish is low in calories and ready in just 30 minutes. Easy to make and full of protein, this dish is plenty when served alone or with rustic French bread
