Our favourite winter comfort food recipes for students


Anybody else get pelted with hail whilst walking down Smithdown last night? Just us?

Winter weather has definitely arrived, so we wanted to pull together some wallet-friendly winter warmer meals to tuck into once lectures are done. We asked the team here for their picks.

Unbelievably cheap and easy-to-make, this pea soup was suggested by not one but two members of the team.

Veggie-packed pasta

Recommended by the pro-pasta crowd, this is a spicy, veggie-loaded meal. Cheap and easy-to-make, check out the one-pot recipe here.

Stodgy classics

This meat and potato pie can be made as one large pie or broken down into smaller pie tins to freeze for later. To make things super speedy, you can even use ready-roll pastry to pull this scrummy classic out of the bag of an evening. Here’s how.
