I think it’s time for my annual warming recipe digest, as I all I want to do right now is shovel bowls of hearty beans, lovely internal central heating soups, fruit-filled cakes, everything-on-toast, and plates of cheesy pasta. So here are some of the recipes I’ve posted on LLG that fall into those categories over the past few years. And they include my trashy and delicious Fried Gnocchi recipe, which is easily one of the most popular recipes over the 5+ years of the blog, and which even made it in to the pages of The Guardian in 2012 as a best ever hangover cure!

(Sorry Southern hemisphere & California readers – there are some lovely salad recipes here.)

Winter Breakfast: Pomegranate Bircher Muesli

The slow cooked tomato sauce link leads to the field mushrooms, mozzarella, cannelini beans and parsley recipe.

So many delicious recipes, the only problem is which one to try first. x

When are you publishing a cook book? Seriously, your veggie recipes are fab, tasty and I CAN ACTUALLY MAKE THEM! x

ooh brilliant. As I’m currently enroute back from a trip to South East Asia, I do not wish to see rice or noodles for a long time and have the temperature difference to cope with as well as a vow to cook mostly from my veg box in 2013 – so these recipes are perfect until I get my head back into UK gear and can think of my own! Thank you!!

Thank you! I’ve been busy and in a cooking-rut so some new recipes to try that are quick, easy and veggie are exactly what I need.
