Here in Sweden we’ve been in the winter season for quite some time now and right bout now we really need some comfort! Therefore I came up with the idea to share four hug-in-a-bowl recipes these next two months to take our minds off the wait for spring. Or if you are not affected by the weather you can make them to simply add some cosiness to your life in the form of food. This beetroot bourguignon is a super grounding stew with hearty root vegetables and lots of aromas from a variety of ingredients that come together to create a unique depth of flavour. This stew is perfect for meal prepping, great to treat friends and family too or simply to make when you need a little bit of a soft landing after a long day. I hope you will enjoy!
