New Orleans recipe!
Crispy and nutritious kale is the perfect addition to this spicy fish creole and it’s in season throughout the winter. Try it in stir-fries or sauteed with a little chilli and garlic.
Bonfire Night recipe!
Have a go at making your own creamy toffee apples for Bonfire Night. The sticky and sweet toffee makes a great coating for a crunchy British apple.
Slimming World recipe!
If you’re on a budget but want to eat fish, nutritious mackerel is affordable and sustainable. Its strong flavour needs the right fresh and zesty ingredients to go with it: Try mackerel spiced up with chilli, orange lemon and watercress.
Filling family meal!
Butternut squash is in season until late November so make the most of it while it’s at its best. This vegetable lasagne makes a nice change from meat and will go down well with all the family.
Rich and creamy!
Chestnuts are at their best until December and soup is one of the best ways to keep warm in the colder months, so this chestnut soup is definitely worth a try in November.
Quick and impressive!
British pears continue to be in season throughout the winter, so have a go at making your own impressive pear tart. This recipe has it all: Sweet pastry, caramelised pears and a warm, gooey filling.
Perfect for roast dinners!
Parsnips have just come into season so look out for offers in the supermarket and add some sweet, crispy ‘snips to your Sunday roast.
Swedes are coming into season and are inexpensive, now’s the perfect time to give this swede, leek and potato gratin a go.
Venison is both in season and low fat (it’s also full of B Vits). If you keep an eye out for supermarket offers, this game meat needn’t be expensive. Instead of your usual chicken curry, try venison; its tender texture will go really well with spicy vegetables in this balti.
Exotic passion fruit is in season now. Whip up this cheesecake to wow your party guests. The exotic fruit has a tart, tropical flavour that goes perfectly with blueberries.
