Plant-Powered Comfort Food

Wrap yourself in something warm, get cozy ... and dig into some comfort food.

When January hits, you often hear the same thing from magazines, social media and co-workers: “Summer is almost here! Time to start drinking more smoothies and eating all the salads.”* But the truth is that winter’s here to stay for the next few months—and sometimes all you want is warm comfort food.

By comfort food, we don’t mean sugary treats or calorific meals. We mean cozy vegan comfort food designed to nourish your body. Heather Crosby, the creator of YumUniverse.com, has dedicated her considerable culinary skills to making that kind of food—vegan comfort food that doesn’t skimp on taste. We’re thrilled to feature three of her crazy-good creations.

*Full disclosure: we’re guilty of this too. Our detox articles often say something suspiciously similar about warm weather being just around the corner. #sorrynotsorry
