Best winter breakfast recipes

If you need a little more convincing than usual to get out of bed when it's cold outside, try these warm, hearty breakfast ideas to get you going, from waffles to warm polenta and smoky beans with bacon.

What to cook this winter

From rib-sticking beef rendang to the perfect goat's cheese quiche, these are the recipes to tick off for winter (so far).

Recipes using turmeric

An old Indian spice lauded for its health benefits, turmeric adds both colour and a peppery, warm, sometimes slightly bitter flavour to food. Use it in curries, with rice, as a paste for grilled meats and in warm winter soups.

Winter tart recipes

Tarts are as versatile as they are delicious, and are perfect for baking on a cool winter's day.

Chocolate hob-nobs

These extra-large oat biscuits are exactly what you need to get through the afternoon slump. Have one with a strong cup of tea and you'll be firing.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Citrus recipes

From tarte au citron to canard a l’orange, citrus flavours have long been friends of French cuisine. Pucker up for a taste of the sun-kissed Mediterranean and further afield with these recipes featuring oranges, lemons, grapefruit and mandarins.

One-pot recipes

There's no need to do the dishes with these one-pot wonders. From hearty stews to creamy risottos, these recipes are mess free and perfect for a winter's night.

Baked ricotta with honey, orange and almonds


This baked ricotta is a beautiful light pudding to complete any dinner, but it also makes a great brunch. For a gluten-free version, substitute almond meal for the flour.
