Winter Comfort Food …Can Be Meat Free!

As it get colder meat dishes seem to become more central to the diet of  students. On a cold day nobody really craves salad, so I would like to share one of my favorite recipes that is both comforting and sustainable. Don’t be discouraged by the fact that this contains no meat…. the soup is delicious with really crusty and grainy bread. This is very simple recipe so please try it and enjoy!

  • Add the tomatoes and oregano (if using dried) to potato mixture and stir. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat, cover the pot and simmer stirring and checking occasionally, until the potatoes are tenderand the sauce is thick, about half an hour.
