My Warm Winter Menu from Provence

The following menu is for cold days, regardless of where you live in the world. These three recipes are easy to prepare. The soup can, and almost should be, made in advance to maximize the marriage of flavours. The slow-roasted lamb requires very little preparation time and even less monitoring but will fill your home with delicious aromas. And, certainly, the side dish is flavourful enough to stand on its own.

Enjoy these three dishes – My Warm Winter Menu from Provence – together or separately.

White Bean Soup
This soup is ideal for a dinner party as it can be made ahead. Heat it through at the last moment and serve with toasted country bread.

Slow-Cooked Shoulder of Lamb with Garlic and Rosemary
There is no easier dish for a heartwarming meal among family and friends. You can use a leg of lamb, but the shoulder is juicier because there is a bit more fat. Cooked in a heavy casserole dish (such as a Creuset) that can go in the oven, I like to place the meat simply on a bed of several rosemary sprigs, onion, and garlic for a beautiful dish that serves 4.

Sautéed Potatoes, Peppers, and Onions
Potatoes are a popular vegetable that are prepared as additions to meals all over the world. Fun fact: did you know potatoes were believed to be banned in France from 1748 to 1772, as they were thought to be poisonous and even cause leprosy! Fortunately, potatoes are a hearty vegetable packed full of nutrients and minerals, so feel free to enjoy them as much as you'd like.
