Autumn warmers: ideas and tips


For a low-cost, winter night in, why not try some of the following tips and recipes?

  • Why not try a chunky vegetable soup? Leftover cooked vegetables are ideal for soups and you can literally use anything – even roast potatoes. Just blend everything together with hot stock and reheat thoroughly.
  • You could try your hand at something a little spicy like a mixed vegetable curry.  Use store cupboard essentials, including dry spices and coconut milk, to make a flavoursome curry with any veg you need to use up.
  • Baked apples are a simple, easy dessert to make and you can use apples that are looking a bit tired. All you need to do is core the apples and fill the space with a mixture of dried fruit (sultanas, raisins and mixed peal), brown sugar and a sprinkling of dried cinnamon and bake in the oven.
  • If you have a spare evening, how about spending it cooking dishes like lasagne and shepherd’s pie, then freeze into portions for days when you don’t have time to cook. To make these dishes go that bit further, grate that last carrot into the mix.
  • And don’t forget- breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not set yourself up with a hearty breakfast of porridge? To make it even tastier, stew some leftover fruit to eat with it.
