Donna Hay: Basics To Brilliance

Donna Hay's Best Warming Winter Meals

Winter is coming... So, this is what you need to be cooking.

With Donna Hay returning to our TV screens later this month, there is no better time to look back upon the scrumptious meals she's served up in the past.

With the cold evenings becoming more common, you may want to enjoy a night in with these warming delights.

Pasta Carbonara

A creamy, carb-filled meal is the perfect antidote to those winter chills. 

Egg and Bacon Pies

If it's breakfast you need, look no further than these easy baked bacon and egg dishes. Whip it up, pop it in the oven, then you can wait in your warm bed for another 25 minutes before it's ready to go.

Slow-cooked Balsamic and Garlic Lamb

This Greek-inspired dish will feed the whole family - maybe even leaving leftovers for lunch the next day.

Easy Vegetable Soup

Minimum effort and maximum nutrients? We all need one of these go-to recipes for winter. 

Pumpkin and Ricotta Ravioli

This pasta dish is perfect all year round, but vegetarians will feel particularly keen to cosy up to it on a cool evening.

Bacon and Lentil Soup

Packed with protein and fiber, lentils are good for your gut and your energy levels. This soup is also low in calories but will still fill you up!

Steak and Three Veg

You've probably had a steak and three veg meal before - but have you mastered it to perfection? This recipe uses seasonal root vegetables to bring the most out of this simple meal.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin soup is the quintessential winter meal. It's full of vitamin C to help fight away those nasty colds too!

Roasted Chicken and Chorizo

This one-pan wonder is a miracle for lazy nights - and the chorizo really helps heat things up!

Cheat's Glazed Ham

If you're celebrating Christmas in July - and why not, right? - you need to make this easy glazed ham the centre piece of your feast.
