Carrot, Sweet Potato and Squash Soup
This delectable autumn-flavoured soup makes enough to serve 4 to 6 as a main, and 8 to 10 as a starter or side.
Kielbasa, Potato and Cabbage Soup
This hearty European soup from Rachael Ray is flavoured with lager and fresh lemon juice. Serve with a dollop of crème fraiche and a sprinkle of fresh dill.
Sausage, Beans and Broccoli Rabe Soup
This hearty soup is chock-full of Italian sausage, onions, carrots, potatoes, white beans, broccoli rabe and a flavour-packed broth that you’ll want to enjoy time and time again.
Spaghetti and Meatball ‘Stoup’
All the comfort of soup with the flavours and heartiness of spaghetti, Rachael Ray hits it out of the park with this fusion of two comfort food favourites.
You don’t need meat to make a hearty chili that is full of beans, rice, spinach, zucchini and fresh herbs. Cumin, coriander, thyme and oregano give this delicious and easy vegetarian chili recipe big flavour.
Squash and Pumpkin
Searching for the glow? Beta-carotene-rich vegetables, such as squash and pumpkin, infuse the skin with nutrition, converting to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A also helps to absorb selenium, a powerful antioxidant that can help with acne.
Curried Squash Soup with Apple and Cheddar Melts
This warming curried squash soup is a satisfying stand-alone dish, but serve it with golden-brown grilled cheese, oozing with cheddar, mango chutney and apples slices, and you’ve got a real winning meal.
Mexican Chorizo and Turkey Chili
For a simple post-holiday weeknight meal, turn to that leftover turkey and add it to this spicy and flavourful chili.
BBQ Turkey Gumbo
Leftover turkey (or chicken) is perfect in this rich and hot sauce spiked gumbo. Serve this savoury stew with rice or oyster crackers.
Sausage, Pepper and Onion One Pot
Have a few sausages leftover? Turn your last two links into a quick and comforting stew. Serve with lots of crusty bread, or toast up those extra hot dog or hamburger buns.
Ratatouille with Poached Eggs and Garlic Croutons
A classic French dish made into a family-friendly, complete-meal casserole. Eggs add protein, making this meal super satisfying. Cook up the veggie base ahead of time, then reheat, and cook the eggs in the bubbling base when you’re ready to eat.
Ranch-Style Turkey Chili
Char your poblano peppers over the stovetop to give your chili the smoky, rich flavour synonymous with a ranch-style spicy southwest chili recipe, here, made with fresh herbs, ground turkey and pinto beans.
