From September to late November, there are a range of ingredients that are in season and just waiting to be included in some of your meals. Apples, blackberries, butternut squash, onions, plums and many more foods are ripe and ready to be cooked and served in a delicious variety of recipes.
What better way to get in the kitchen, put your utensils to good use and embrace the pre-winter season, than with these autumn inspired recipes!
Jamie Oliver’s Sweet Cherry Tomato and Sausage Bake
Perfect for any Sunday, and fantastic as leftovers, Jamie Oliver’s hearty sausage bake is both gluten and dairy free and simple to make. Created in one tray and full of autumnal spices, Jamie uses pork sausages and sprigs of rosemary, thyme and a fresh bay leaf. The herbs work well along with the intense tomato sauce. The pork sausages surrounded by herbs and the tomato sauce make the dish taste fresh and ideal for warming you up on a cold autumn day.
Plum and Almond Crumble Slice
For those of you with a sweet tooth, try this Plum and Almond Crumble. Reminding you just how great desserts can taste even when they only take 20 minutes to bake (in your fan oven). Using plums adds a sweetness that works well with the almonds and adding a little cinnamon really gets you in the spirit of the season. One, two or even twelve slices, no matter how many slices you want, there will be a sweet taste of autumn in every mouthful.
Roasted Autumn Vegetables and Lancashire Cheese
The autumn season is known for harvesting the best potatoes and squashes. Having a bowl of roasted autumn vegetables is perfect to keep your hunger at bay, warming you up and providing you with all the vegetables you need after a long day at work. Adding Lancashire cheese in chunks sprinkled on top is creamy, delicious and great for any day of the week. Roasting everything in one tin makes it easy for you to get a balanced meal; resulting in a great autumn taste with not much washing up to do afterwards! A simple recipe with red onions, butternut squash, carrots and parsnips, the autumn season has never tasted so great.
