Cozy Snow Day Recipes

By Katrina Scott on
On chilly winter days, all we want to do is curl up in our pajamas with a candle and something delicious and warming to eat...anyone else?!
Today we’re sharing three of our favorite snow day recipes — a cozy crockpot soup, banana bread because we love to bake on chilly days, and hot cocoa (with a TIU twist!) because it reminds us of snow days as kids!
Enjoy and stay warm babe ❄️

Tofu, Mushroom, & Miso Soup Recipe

Makes 4 servings 



3 oz. fresh shiitake mushrooms 

3 oz. fresh cremini mushrooms 

3 scallions 

8 cups water 

1 large carrot, cut crosswise into 4-5 pieces 

1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into ¼-inch-thick slices

Peel from 1 lemon 

⅛ teaspoon ground turmeric

½ tsp. ground black pepper


¼ cup white miso paste 

1 brick (14 oz.) firm tofu, cut into ¼-inch cubes

1. Separate the stems from the mushrooms and place them in a slow cooker. Slice the mushroom tops into ¼-inch-thick slices; keep them covered and chilled in the refrigerator. 
2. Trim the roots off the scallions and cut each one crosswise into thirds. Toss the white and light green pieces into the slow cooker. Thinly slice the dark green pieces; keep them covered and chilled in the refrigerator.
