Seasonal Produce In January

by Fabian Jackson

4min read

January can feel like the depths of winter and cooking (and eating) hearty meals are one of our favourite activities of the month. Keep reading to discover what’s in season and some great plant-based recipes you can make with the produce. 

What produce is in season in January?

It’s easy to think that the winter months in the UK don’t have the biggest choice of locally grown vegetables, but this isn’t true. It’s a great time of year for a whole variety of root vegetables, leafy greens and other winter vegetables.

Seasonal recipes for January

Now for our favourite bit – what to do with all this seasonal produce in the kitchen.


Leek and sweet potato soup

The antidote to wet January afternoons is a warming bowl of this soup!

There’s always time for risotto in our opinion and this mushroom recipe is one of our favourites.

Creamy cauliflower pasta

When it’s cold out, something creamy, carby and delicious is exactly what you need.

citrus beets

Citrus roasted beetroot with toasted pistachios 

For a zingy and vibrant dish, this alternative salad is exactly the ticket.


Tofu, mushroom and cabbage gyoza

This gyoza recipe is a recent addition from our Food Editor, Val, but it’s already a firm favourite in-house so we know you’ll love it too.

Now all that left to do is get to your local market and start cooking!
