Prue has a great range of vegetarian recipes, including this chilli. It’s the ultimate comfort food for a rainy evening. Serve it in deep bowls over brown rice, with the corn salsa scattered on top.

ByRuby’s Easy Wild Mushroom Risotto

This easy recipe makes the most of autumn’s mushroom harvest (if you can’t get wild ones, go for a mixture of button mushrooms and portobello mushroom caps). It’s also great for cooking in batches and freezing - that way you always have something to eat for busy weeknights! You can use this risotto as a base recipe and add all kinds of seasonal fresh vegetables: roasted butternut squash and spinach are another autumnal option.

Healthy Green Mac ‘N’ Cheese

This simple, healthy meal combines a delicious, creamy white sauce with an array of seasonal green vegetables and a crunchy almond crumb. Our top tip - make sure you cook the macaroni pasta for two minutes less than the packet instructions, so it doesn’t overcook when you bake it in the oven.

Purple Sprouting Broccoli Tian

Image for blog - 5 Delicious Vegetarian Recipes

A tian is a tasty supper relying on fine ingredients – the name refers to the rustic earthenware dish that it is baked in. My version is partly Elizabeth David, partly my family favourites. There are a few golden rules: use heavy old potatoes for maximum flavour and fluffy texture; use dirty spinach, never tasteless gas-flushed packets; and great cheese. Serve with crusty bread to mop up the juices.
