The winter season has brought the dreaded cold, snow, and wind chill along with it. Though the ice and frigid temperatures aren’t pleasant during wintertime, the seasonal produce is. Fruits and veggies that are in season or at their peak in winter include pumpkin, sweet potatoes, bok choy, broccoli, butternut squash, carrots, kale, persimmons, and pomegranates.

Enjoy winter’s best produce and keep toasty by making fresh stews, hearty pies, and creamy, hot casseroles. Here are 10 go-to plant-based meals to keep you warm this winter.

1. Roasted Winter Vegetable Soup
