Our Favourite Comfort Food Recipes For Surviving A Lockdown

While we cannot be together around a dinner table, we can connect via food. Here at ILNI, we are sheltering separately in our homes during this pandemic but, as a team, we have enjoyed sharing recipes and indulgences that are giving us some comfort in these crazy times. Sharing food has a way of keeping us connected, and so today we are sharing our favourite lockdown comfort food recipes with you too.

Hummingbird Bakery Carrot Cake

When we need comfort food, we cannot go past this decadent Carrot Cake recipe with cream cheese icing.

Nachos with Homemade ‘Cheese

This Nacho recipe is loaded with all the good stuff that will ensure you don’t feel any guilt at indulging in a second helping!

The Plantpower Way Potato Salad

Potatoes are the ultimate comfort food when in lockdown, and we love this plant power potato salad recipe with olives! 

Griddled Vegetables & Feta with Tabbouleh

Have you ever tried to BBQ feta? This fantastic recipe from Jamie Oliver will make you want to try. Pulling out the BBQ to cook in the garden is a great way to liven up dinner time while under stay at home orders.

Tear and Share Bread with Sun-dried Tomatoes, Black Olives and Mozzarella

We are rediscovering the joy of baking bread while in lockdown, with varying levels of success with our loaves. This easy-to-make, and easy-to-eat tear and share Bread is almost a no-fail recipe that everyone in your household will enjoy.

DoubleTree Signature Chocolate Chip Cookies

To help us all cope with the lockdown and our overwhelming desire to bake comfort food, the DoubleTree Hotel Chain decided to release their famous cookie recipe. This recipe is for the same signature cookie that every guest receives on arrival at one of their hotels, and now we can enjoy them from the comfort of our sofa. Be warned: you will want to eat more than one!

Vegan Chocolate Pots

Because we all know that in lockdown you can never have enough chocolate, we have included our favourite Jamie Oliver recipe for Chocolate pots with lime, vanilla, rum and chilli. Enjoy!

Please stay safe and well during this challenging time.

With kindness from all of us at ILNI.
