Bring out the roasting dish, the one pots and those heavy winter warming recipes! Here’s our top 5 autumnal recipes – and remember, hearty doesn’t always mean meaty!

  1. Tomato & Chestnuts Lentil-zotto with Basil & Sun-dried Tomatoes

A slightly heavier version of your traditional creamy risotto, quick to make and full of hearty flavour! The recipe is full of veggie goodness and a great way to fill up without the guilt during frosty lunchtimes or winter nights.
