Our Favorite Healthy Comfort Food

Here's a collection of Umami Girl's best healthy comfort food recipes — both editor favorites and fan favorites from our long history of sharing this satisfying, nourishing style of food. In the deep midwinter, nutrient-dense soups, stews, Buddha bowls, and more are just the kinds of meals we crave to fuel our days and cozy up our nights. You'll want to bookmark this collection and refer to it all season long.

Our popular Quick Indian Spinach and Chickpea Curry, pictured above, is ready in 20 minutes but tastes like it's been simmering all day. It's vegetarian and gluten-free out of the gate, and it's easily made vegan if you like.

Healthy Comfort Food

Smoky Vegetarian Chili

This longtime editor- and fan favorite Smoky Vegetarian Chili with Pinto Beans and Corn makes a great weeknight meal alone or alongside some quick Yankee cornbread muffins. It's vegan and gluten-free unless you go nuts with the toppings, which, don't let us stop you. It's all about balance, right?

Hearty Vegan Chili in the Instant Pot

This vegan, gluten-free Instant Pot chili recipe combines buckwheat, black beans, sweet potato and chipotle peppers (or smoked paprika, if you'd rather). Just place it all in the instant pot, crank the pressure and walk away. It makes a nice big batch that only gets better throughout the week.
