Menu Idea: Cozy Winter Pantry Meal
There is something so satisfying about gathering items from my pantry and refrigerator, then simmering them in a pot on the stove. I love the process, the aroma that fills the house, and the comfort and nourishment that is provided when it’s time to dine, especially on chilly days! I choose fresh and/or minimally processed, low sodium, nutrient-rich ingredients with an eye toward quality proteins and whole grains.
Here is a wonderful winter menu that offers both meat and vegetarian entrees, as well as complimentary side dishes. No need for haute cuisine, just flavorful goodness that will be welcoming and delicious.
- Spinach “Super” Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette
- Herb and Cheese Gougeres
