This month the Simple and in Season link-up had 45 entries! Granted, the round was open slightly longer than usual, but the end of summer and beginning of autumn did bring an abundance of seasonal treats.
So, for this round-up, I have split the entries into Savoury and Sweet – and we’ll start with a round up of savoury recipes before moving onto dessert with plenty of inspiration in time for National Baking Week!
We start with a recipe from Lauren over at The Past on A Plate who made a Beetroot and Apple Salad - prefect for the competition, it’ simple and it’s in season! I love Lauren’s retro-style photo.
Next, a Simple and in Season regular from Toronto, Torview made Dolma, or Grape Leaf Rolls stuffed with meat – my kind of food!
Claire, from Purely Food, joined in with a Mussel, Spinach & Bacon Gratin
Next, the first inspirational entry from Karen over at Lavender and Lovage – an Autumn Pear, Fig and Goat’s Cheese Platter with Ham and Walnuts - yum!
Followed by a very vibrant Last of the Summer English Allotment Soup/French Potager Soup also by Karen
And Karen also made this amazing-looking Figs, Raspberries & Pears, Autumn Harvest Salad for an Indian Summer Lunch – stunning!
Philip over at What’s For Tea Tonight, Dear? shared a recipe for a Savoury Pear & Stinking Bishop Pudding with a gorgeous pear photo, published in My St Margaret’s Magazine. Philip’s pears are sitting on a whole round of Stinking Bishop’s Cheese with its beautiful pink rind!
Previous Simple and in Season winner, Mel from Sharky Oven Gloves made a Three-Cheese Summer Vegetable Bake adapted from Delicious Magazine – I too have a food magazine addiction, Mel!
Clare, a fellow St Albans blogger fromThe Vegetarian Experience shared a recipe for Butternut Squash Soup - one of my seasonal favourites!
I was inspired by some store-cupboard ingredients mixed with some seasonal ingredients to make this Three Grain Leek and Mushroom Risotto
Next, a lovely lot of seasonal recipes from Janet from The Taste Space team – firstly, Triple Corn Pancakes
Next, an unusual Moroccan Curried Carrot, Mango and Lentil Salad
A lovely warming bowl of Thai Coconut Corn Stew
As well as a Raw Mushroom Bul Go Gi Lettuce Wrap!
Also, a Roasted Butternut Squash Salad with a Warm Vanilla-Cider Vinaigrette - delicious flavour combination.
You could also try a Spanish Chickpea and Squash Stew from The Taste Space
And finally from The Taste Space, a recipe which I will definitely be trying Butternut Squash, Coconut and Lentil Soup (Aarti’s Indian Summer Stew)
Cherrapeno joined in and used up a glut of tomatoes to make this stunning Summer Tomato Tart adding fresh chillies and Parmesan cheese – delicious!
Laura from How to Cook Good Food made this lovely dish – Duck with Blackberry Relish inspired by a cookbook by Sybil Kapoor called Simply British -mmmmn!
And, the lovely Dom from Belleau Kitchen joined Simple and in Season and shared a recipe for a Leek, Fennel nd Summer Squash Cheesy Bake inspired by two recipes from Veg Everyday, the brilliant new book by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
So, that’s it for the savoury seasonal recipes…look out for the sweet ones next, there will be plenty to inspire you for National Baking Week, I promise! And..the winner will be announced too.
