Winter Warmers, comfort food for a cold night: soups, chilli and crumble…

Think of this as a showcase of some of my favourite winter recipes.
Now the southern Hemisphere summer is officially over, I am pulling out the perfect winter recipes that comfort me when it is cold, raining and windy outside. Some of these you’ve seen before, but the highlight of this post is the Tunisian soup below.
Let’s start with soups…

This is my all-time favourite soup, no arguments, it is simply the best…

Chilli con carne – perfected over many years…

My Husband’s signature dish is chilli con carne – it is amazing. And so it should be after 3 years of merging recipes and perfecting the combination of spices. It is the perfect dish for a cold winter night (or lunchtime!). I love it because of all the vegetables included – while Tim is eating what seems to him like a carnivores delight, he is actually getting a good balanced meal!

He has asked I explain that whilst there is a recipe to follow, it is really a bit of this and a bit of that … and then add a little bit more of anything if you think it needs it.

One of the key ingredients is dark chocolate, it provides the richness of flavour. I particularly like the addition of this ingredient, because there is about 3/4 of the block remaining to be consumed with the remaining red wine after cooking!
