Does anyone have ideas or recipes for comfort food?

As the weather gets cooler I start to crave casseroles and stews and pot pies, shepherds pies and lots of starchy food

Check out the Dr. B recipe book....the turkey and cheese casserole is fabulous.  I add in shirataki noodles and its just creamy, filling and flavorful.  

You can find the recipe here.

Also if you save your breads (1 slice=1 serving) you can make grilled cheese with one of the many legal Tomato soup recipes!  I find that super comforting.  

If you take your chicken serving, pound it flat and then stuff it (1 piece of bread/melba toast moistened with a little water or chicken stock) then bake at 375 for roughly 15-20 mins until done....then serve with mashed cauliflower...Very comfort food type meal....oh and don't forget your green beans on the side.  


thats just a few ideas of the top of my head....I look forward to seeing everyone elses suggestions.

The Dr. B. Shepherds pie is outstanding.  Last night I made the spinach soup from the Dr. B. recipe book and it was really nice on a cool evening.

Strict Hot and Sour soup (my own creation):
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp soya
2 tsp ginger (or more)
Hot pepper flakes or chopped Jalapeno pepper
McCormicks chicken bullion cube
8 oz veg what ever you like.  I prefer onions, zucchini, celery and mushrooms.

Combine all ingred with 2 c water bring to boil and simmer for 16 min.  
You can also add tofu for your protein serving if you like.  Makes a meal in a bowl and warms the insides.   :D
