My Top Autumn Recipes

This is definitely the type of weather where we feel like having warming, hearty dishes to fight off the chill. Here are a few of my favourites that you can easily prepare when working away and staying in serviced accommodation.

Butternut squash soup

A comforting and warming soup with seasonal vegetables, that is perfect for those chilly evenings!

  • A peeled and deseeded butternut squash, cut into cubes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 pepper, cut into cubes
  • Olive oil
  • 1 litre of vegetable stock

Preheat oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Add the prepared ingredients to a roasting pan and drizzle the oil on top. Pop in the oven for approx. 45 minutes, or until golden brown.

Place a large saucepan over medium heat, and add some oil. Pour in the stock and bring to a boil, then stir in the roasted vegetables and add seasoning to your preference, I love to add a pinch of chilli powder and some pepper. Remove the saucepan from the heat and then blend.

Easy Traybake

When you don’t feel like having a big clear-up after baking try this one.

  • Olive oil

  • 2 peppers, chopped
  • Garlic cloves, chopped
  • Handful of basil
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 12 sausages
  • 200ml white wine
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Place all the ingredients in a roasting pan and coat in oil. Season to your preference. Roast for about 30–35 minutes until golden-brown. Then add in the wine and cook for a further 20 minutes. That’s all there is to it!

Mac & Cheese

This is a favourite holiday recipe for me and the family.

  • 5oz Cheese
  • Butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • Thyme
  • 1 tsp paprika and Dijon Mustard
  • Mushrooms
  • Panko crumbs
  • Stock
  • 1b macaroni
  • Truffle oil if you want to make it extra special

Sauté the mushrooms, onions, and thyme in the butter. Add in the stock and macaroni and heat until al dente, and then stir in cheese and season to your preference.
Pour into a greased dish, add truffle oil if you want, and then sprinkle the remaining cheese and panko crumbs on top. Put it under the grill to brown.
