Seasonal recipes for August
Now, some of our favourite recipes to make with this local produce – recipes!
These crispy and crunchy fritters will make a great accompaniment to any evening al fresco meal. They have a great texture and flavour to match.
This recipe for Oyster mushroom shawarma is topped with miso tahini and zhoug for a fresh and spicy extra kick. It perfect for a late weekend lunch.
We have a bit of a thing for aubergine recipes, so it was hard to pick a favourite, but this miso glaze has to be tried to be believed.
Yep, you read that right – we know that fruit belongs in savoury dishes which is why we’re such fans of this crunchy and herby salad.
These buttery and flaky vegan strawberry galettes deliver the same joy, bursting flavour and comfort as a pie, only with half the baking time and a quarter of the hassle!
All that’s left to do now is pick a starting recipe and find some great fresh ingredients.
Let us know what ingredient you’re most looking forward to this month in the comments.
