As the weather turns chilly there is no greater source of warmth and comfort than a good meal. However our choice comfort foods are often cheesy, hearty and rich—not to mention lacking in nutrition and high in calories.
Here at Massel we’ve thought up a list of delicious and hearty comfort foods to add some warmth to the crisp fall air. Both tasty and healthy, these recipes will leave you feeling satisfied, not overindulged.
This pasta dish puts a new spin on everyone’s favorite cheesy comfort food. Seasoned with a bit of Massel for an extra kick, this mac and cheese is a sure crowd-pleaser.
Looking for a lighter take on a classic Italian dish? Look no further. Instead of chicken, we’ve layered Eggplant, which is a great source of fiber and potassium.
“Loaded potato soup is typically overly rich and super heavy, but this gluten-free version made with Massel is delicious, light and won’t leave you feeling like you overindulged.”
— Meg van der Kruik, Beard + Bonnet
This low calorie option to your regular meatloaf packs just as much flavor. Pair it with a side of Massel’s turkey style gravy for even more moisture and richness.
“The sauce in this potato bake is also fabulous with other vegetables like sweet potato, green beans, eggplant and zucchini. As I type this, we’re enjoying these scalloped potatoes with some steamed broccoli and carrots!”
— The Blender Girl, Tess Masters
