Cold Weather Comfort Food
The Best Soups, Stews, and Slow Cooker Recipes From the Cabot Cheese Board
As temperatures fall and cold weather activities heat up, now is a great time to pull out the slow cooker or your favorite stockpot and get ready to tackle some of these tempting dishes.
Nothing makes a cold day more bearable than a rich, steaming bowl of soup or a thick, savory stew. When you pair a steaming bowl of soup with your favorite sandwich, like grilled cheese or a BLT, or a veggie-laden salad, you instantly have a wholesome, satisfying meal.
These are dishes that are great to make ahead. You can even double up on the recipes and have meals for later in the week. You can even pop a few containers into the freezer for nights when you really don’t feel like cooking.
Let me sing the praises of slow cookers. How many times have I been able to create a crowd-pleasing dinner…at breakfast time? What could be better than popping tasty, nutritious ingredients into a crock pot in the morning and coming home from work with the house smelling divine, and dinner almost ready?
Here are some of the best – and easiest to prepare – dishes for the coming months.

And don’t forget all the great recipes for Soups, Stews, and Slow Cookers on the Cabot website. Here are three of my favorites:
This Tomato-Cheddar Soup is one of my go-to recipes. It’s easy to make and I have yet to serve it to anyone who doesn’t want me to make it for them again and again.
This vegetarian stew hits the culinary trifecta – it’s hearty, satisfying, and totally yummy. Our Eggplant and Chickpea Stew with Cheddar Dumplings is perfect for a party or pot luck…or just a great meal on a cold night.
