Recipes to Warm you up this February

Recipes to Warm you up this February

We are cooking more at home these days and maybe you need some new and fun recipes.

Thanks to the research of Clinton Howell and his team, we have lots of great recipes for the whole family. Here are some great ideas for every day of the week and the weekend too. Have fun with the family and enjoy some or all of these recipes.


As good as eating plant-based meals are for you, not everyone chooses to be completely plant based, so why not start out with one night a week. Here are a few choices for Meatless Monday.

Zucchini, Asparagus & Mint Soup

This vegetarian soup is both healthy and delicious, served with some warm bread or rolls, it’s a meal in itself.

Veggie Burgers

This vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free mushroom burger recipe may just surprise you with how tasty it is. While mushrooms provide plenty of flavor and texture, the addition of pinto beans makes this recipe high in fiber and protein, too.

Spinach Stuffed Shells

These stuffed shells are cheesy, saucy, and stuffed with the most delicious ricotta and spinach filling. They are so pretty that you could serve these shells for a romantic Valentine’s dinner at home.

Who would have thought zucchini, potato and pizza would go this well together? Jamie Oliver of course! Now you can be a top chef in your own kitchen too.

Sheet Pan Pizza with Brussel Sprouts and Salami

There is no higher calling of the humble Brussels sprout than this sheet-pan pizza. Pre-roasted until they're well caramelized before assembling the pizza, all you have to do is make sure that bottom crust is good and brown before sticking the whole thing under the broiler to get the cheese bubbling.

Cast-Iron Skillet Pizza

What if we told you there existed a pizza recipe that was so easy, so fast, and so insanely delicious it would change your life? It's true! It will at least change your weeknight-cooking life. Thanks to a store-bought dough and a screaming-hot cast-iron skillet, weeknight pizza just got a whole lot better.

Margherita Pizza

This is the best margherita pizza that you’ll be able to make in your own kitchen, with a standard oven, normal everyday ingredients (no fancy flours required), and without preparing an incredibly time-intensive pizza dough days in advance.

The nutty flavour of wild rice and slivered almonds combined with mushrooms and other great stuff, this could be a meatless meal if you omit the chicken.
