So it really feels like autumn now, brighter mornings and darker nights, a slight chill in the air and the autumnal colours starting to show. I love autumn and look forward to embracing the changes at this time of year and I hope my recipes for have reflected this, so let’s look back over Feastforfamines’ October recipes…
First stop and a place very close to my heart was Sri Lanka for the Inspired by Sri Lanka – Prawn and Yellow Lentil Curry with Cheats Pol Sambola, I really loved the earthiness the roasted spice mix added to this curry along with the freshness of the Pol Sambal, you could keep even omit the prawns in this recipe and make it vegan and I think it would still taste just as good.
Next stop was a burst of colour with the Inspired by Hungary – Orange Pepper and Paprika Soup, perfect for warming you up on a cold day, whilst making sure you get a good dose of much needed vitamin C.
Long walks and lazy brunches are some of the things I like to do in autumn, as well as looking out for seasonal produce and pears always make me think of autumn so created this: Inspired by France – Healthier Baked French Toast with Pears, Walnuts and Honey, a healthier alternative on a French classic, you could also use other fruits such as apples, plums etc and add a dollop of creme fraiche for extra deliciousness.
Last stop in October was to Canada for the Inspired by Canada – Maple Syrup and Pecan Candy Apples, a twist on the classic Halloween/Bonfire Night treat!
