Cooking seasonally is cheap and environmentally friendly. Here you will find seven dishes whose main ingredients are in season in January. So you can cook with fresh ingredients even in winter.
Risotto is a classic that you always enjoy eating. Here the bitter substances of the chicory combine with the sweet and sour aromas of the apple. A pleasure! After only 45 minutes, a creamy risotto is on the table, which you can also do great with our vegan parmesan refine.

Mushrooms are harvested all year round. And let’s be honest, there is nothing like a hearty treat on cold days. That’s why I’ve selected hearty pretzel dumplings for you, which are refined with a chanterelle mushroom cream sauce. This dish is ideal for using bread and rolls that have become a bit dry.

Beans are very rich in protein and keep you full for a long time. In this Nepalese curry, kidney beans, white beans, azuki beans, borlotti beans and pinto beans harmonize with fresh ginger, coconut milk and tender basmati rice. The curry is also a wonderful meal prep dish, because the canned beans can be stored for a long time and therefore always have them at home.

Typical winter vegetables include all members of the cabbage family. And what could be nicer in winter than a hearty stew with potatoes and cabbage. Add a few slices of our high-fiber and filling Whole wheat bread and the evening in front of the fireplace can begin.

It looks like a feast but requires little preparation. Slightly bitter chicory complements this recipe with flavors of gorgonzola, pear and lentils. All in all, a Sunday dish that can be seen.
