Heart-Warming, Homemade Winter Dishes

Dec 07, 2015 05:48AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food




During this hectic season, between shuttling the kids from activity to activity and trying to enjoy the holiday spirit, it can be difficult to get a wholesome, homemade meal on your family table, day in and day out. But the solution for simple, delicious dishes is a lot closer than you think: the canned foods in your pantry.

With a well-stocked pantry full of ingredients like canned tomatoes, kidney beans and pumpkin, preparing a nutritious, creative meal that your family will love is easy. Because cans seal in foods’ nutrition, freshness and flavor, they are one of the best ways to get food from its source to your table. Canned foods not only mean less preparation, but they also ensure that you have quality ingredients on-hand year-round – especially during the winter months.

As temperatures fall and your to-do list grows, don’t let your packed schedule compromise sharing a heart-warming, homemade meal with your family. Simply reach in your pantry – your “Cantry” – and unlock the goodness of canned foods that can help you make meals, such as Vegetarian Three Bean Chili or Pumpkin Mac and Cheese, in no time.
