7 Winter Dinner Recipes You Don’t Want To Miss

 

Hello, fellow ghee lovers! As the sun starts to set earlier and the weather begins to get colder, we start to get more into cooking heartier meals that keep us warm and full. To that end, we wanted to round up some delicious and filling dinner recipes that you can make again and again all winter long. Enjoy, and happy cooking! 

 

Cider Braised Sausage and Fennel by @castiron_keto

This isn’t a dish that you hear of every day, so when we came across it we knew we had to add it to our roundup. This is a REALLY simple and fast recipe that yields really big flavor—the cider, fennel, and sausage come together in an incredibly delicious, saucy dish that sticks to your ribs! This recipe is also amazing as leftovers, so double the recipe and keep some in the fridge for whenever you need a fast meal! We added 4th & Heart ghee to this dish, which ties all of the ingredients together and adds a buttery finish that works perfectly with the fennel and sausage. 

 

 

Paleo White Chicken Chili by @whatgreatgrandmaate 

Hearty soups are arguably the backbone of winter eating, so a chili recipe was bound to show up somewhere! While this isn’t your traditional chili, it’s no less hearty or delicious. There are so many incredible flavors in here, including coriander, coconut milk, cilantro, and jalapeño, and we’re confident that this will become a new favorite of yours. We swapped out the coconut oil for 4th & Heart ghee, adding extra buttery goodness. 

 

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Sausage, Apples, and Cranberries by @paleorunningmomma

If we could distill the fall/winter season into a dish, this would probably be it. This delicious (and healthy!) recipe is so full of flavor and texture, we don’t even know where to begin! We also love it because it calls for ghee (both in roasting the squash and preparing the stuffing), and we found that adding flavored ghee like Garlic or Turmeric added a fun spin to this already amazing dinner. It’s hearty, it’s healthy, and it’s yummy—it’s perfect! 

 

The Best Healthier French Onion Soup Recipe by @rachlmansfield 

French onion soup is one of the all time greatest soup recipes, and this healthy spin is just as oniony and yummy as any other recipe we’ve had! This silky, cheesy soup is a quintessential cold weather meal that we absolutely adore. Instead of butter, we added 4th & Heart ghee (Original Recipe, Himalayan Salt, or Garlic ghee work great here!) so give this soup that classic buttery note. This is a soup we can eat over and over and over again, and we know you’ll love it too! 

 

Easy Moroccan Chicken Couscous by @themediterraneandish 

This dish is an absolute flavor bomb in the best way! We were blown away by how simple this recipe is, yet the amount of flavor it yields is astounding. The juicy chicken thighs are marinated in a delicious spice blend that perfumes the whole dish, and the fluffy couscous is the perfect vehicle to soak up all of the delicious sauce. We added a dollop of 4th & Heart ghee to the couscous, as well as used some instead of the called-for extra virgin olive oil. This is a dish that we’re adding to our weekly rotation ASAP! 

 

Leftover Rice Dak Juk (Korean Rice Porridge) by @whatgreatgrandmaate

If you’ve never heard of this dish before, you’ve seriously been missing out! It’s very similar to congee, but takes a lot less time and is just as yummy! Using leftover rice significantly cuts the cooking time down, so you can spend a lot less time in the kitchen and a lot more time eating! This porridge also keeps getting better as it sits, so it’s the ideal leftover meal. We added a dollop of 4th & Heart ghee (Original Recipe, Himalayan Salt, Garlic, and Turmeric work great here) for a delicious, buttery swirl at the very end. What’s rice without a little bit of butter? 

 

 

Homemade Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup by @thecleaneatingcouple 

We’re finishing this winter dinner recipe round up with what we can all agree is the most comforting, filling recipe of all: chicken noodle soup! There are unlimited ways to make this quintessential dish, so feel free to add or subtract any ingredients you want to make this dish your own! We found that adding a little bit of 4th & Heart ghee gave this soup a silky, velvety texture that made classic chicken noodle soup even more alluring. This soup is the culinary equivalent of a big, warm hug!
