Cold weather signals the time when consumers are in the mood for hearty soups, chili, and stews. Robust flavors and varied textures satisfy cravings for stick-to-the-ribs fare to stave off winter’s chill. These three recipes will live up to the season’s demands while adding a touch of flair to lure customers. Offering plenty of visual drama, roasted beet soup with dukkah, yogurt, and red currant drizzle swaps out sour cream for Greek-style yogurt. Vegetarian chili adds appeal with Cotija cheese, avocado, pumpkin seeds, and cilantro. And Provencal lamb stew, featuring a medley of vegetables, comes to life with southern French seasonings, Nicoise olives, and herbs.
