Winter Warmer Recipes to Enjoy in your Motorhome
With the days getting shorter, and the nights drawing in, the way you use your motorhome is likely to change to match the seasons. Despite the drop in temperature, there are still some outstanding areas of natural beauty for you to visit in the UK that take on a whole new look with a dusting of snow. If you’re not planning any winter excursions, then you might want to learn how to prepare your motorhome for winter.
Of course you’ll be wanting to ensure you stay warm in your motorhome this winter, but protecting yourself from the elements doesn’t end there. As it gets colder, you’ll be craving some nourishing, warming sustenance to set you up for the day ahead. Unfortunately, motorhome breakdown cover does not cover you for hunger related stoppages, so choosing the right food to fuel you for the day’s activities is super important.
The Comfort Insurance team have put together a handy booklet of some of our favourite winter warmers for you to prepare easily in your motorhome kitchen that should set you up for a day of exploring and something hearty and satisfying to come home to. We’ve included a selection of tasty, family-friendly meals that includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and sweet treats.
When the thermostat is nudging freezing, nothing beats a bowl of Porridge to start the day, but our Porridge is with a Twist. Some days you won’t have the luxury of to sit around and enjoy a leisurely breakfast if you have an action-packed day planned, so our Breakfast Wraps are a perfect grab & go compromise, which has all the delicious fixings of a full English, but in a portable format.
Lunch can provide a much-needed energy boost after a busy morning. Macaroni Cheese is a real crowd-pleaser; kids love the gooey cheese, whereas adults will appreciate slow-release carbohydrates which are ideal if you plan an afternoon walk or hike. If you’d prefer something a bit lighter, but that still suitably warms the cockles, our Leek & Potato Soup is ideal. In the unlikely event there are any leftovers, pop it in a vacuum flask and take it with you for an afternoon snack.
If you’ve not been lucky enough to spot a suitable village pub with a roaring fire for a pie and a pint in the evening, you’ll be wanting something to warm you up from the inside out. As far as we’re concerned, nothing beats a slow-cooked stew on a cold day to banish the winter blues. There are myriad regional variances of this theme, and Welsh Cawl is one of our absolute favourites. Another way to bring the heat is to add a sprinkle of spice to your meals, and this super-easy Chicken & Chickpea Curry is sure to tantalise your tastebuds. The joy of making your own curries is that you can choose how hot (or not!) you decide to make it.
Sometimes you need something sweet to round off a meal, and these puddings are ready to eat in next to no time. 5-Minute Mug Cake is exactly what you think it is; a single serving of cake that you make in a mug and then pop in the microwave, however it tastes like you put a lot more effort in than you have. Our final recipe is from a guest contributor, Russell Hensman from Auto-Trail, whose Jam Sponge Pudding is a quick and easy take on the British classic.
