There are plenty of reasons to love autumn in South Africa… the crispness in the air, the leaves that slowly turn into gorgeous shades of red and gold, plus of course delicious seasonal produce! We’ve rounded up our favourite autumn recipes for you to try and enjoy – expect plenty of fruit, spices and flavour.
I love the combination of seasonal beetroot with chickpeas and lentils, which are so good for you! This makes a delicious light lunch, but then again, you can serve it any time. Who can ever say no to crispy pastry?
When it’s too chilly for a night out on the town, this is the perfect reason to stay in and grab a spot on the couch. It doesn’t take very long to prepare and it’s dairy-free, making it even healthier.
Warm the cockles of your heart with this scrumptious and filling stew. The chorizo adds a lovely saltiness that cannot be beat!
With its gorgeous pink colour, this beetroot hummus certainly deserves a spot on our list of autumn recipes.
A firm favourite among woman&home readers, this beef stew is so delicious that we recommend eating it throughout autumn and winter.
Bursting with flavours of cinnamon, liquorice, cloves and cardamom, this makes the perfect dessert after a big Sunday lunch. It’s light and aromatic, but also comforting and warming.
Is there anything better in autumn than a freshly baked crumble? This recipe uses seasonal peaches with blackberries, but you can use frozen ones if you can’t find them fresh. It’s ideal with a scoop of ice cream or some cream.
