Top 5 Autumnal Recipes

Top 5 Autumnal Recipes

Autumn has arrived in the UK; a season we think the country really quite suits. The clocks have gone back, leaves cover pathways and there’s a sudden chill in the air as you step outside your front door. Here are five dishes that make a wonderful accompaniment to that autumnal feeling, keeping you nicely nourished til’ winter comes.


1. Beluga Lentil & Balsamic Beetroot Salad

Our Beluga Lentils are so versatile to use in dishes such as this one with balsamic beetroot. Throw them in any salad to add a little more substance and texture, necessary for November as temperatures drop.

2. Champagne Lentil Chestnut & Pumpkin Stew

Perfect for using up those leftover Halloween pumpkins, if they hadn’t already been carved! This warming, vegan one pot wonder tastes even better the next day, ideal for lunch. Our brand new Champagne Lentils will be available to buy in Grain & Graze from 6th December, but you can easily substitute with Puy or Beluga lentils until then.

3. Puy Lentil Vegan Shepherd’s Pie 

Shepherd’s pie could arguably be named the dish of the season, and Alex Mackay’s vegan take on the dish invites you to shake things up a bit with our Simply Cooked Puy Lentils. The crispy filo topping makes a wonderful potato substitute, saving you time and all-important elbow grease.

4. Champagne Lentil, Chicken & Mushroom Hot Pot

For another recipe using our brand new Simply Cooked Champagne Lentils, give this creamy chicken dish a try. It’s quick and easy to prepare, just what you need after a Sunday stroll through the park. Champagne Lentils will be available to buy in Grain & Graze from 6th December, but you can easily substitute with Puy or Beluga lentils until then.

5. Chestnut Frangipane & Fig Tart

Not only do the colours of this dish practically scream autumn time, it is also a welcome excuse to really make the most of chestnut season. Our Whole Chestnuts are ready to use and this recipe proves they’re not just for Christmas time!
