The taste of autumn

A new season brings fresh flavours – and pears, squash and kale are back on the menu. These scrumptious yet healthy autumnal dishes will keep you satisfied as the summer draws to a close

RICOTTA HOT CAKES WITH APRICOT JAM

Serves 4

Celebrity chef John Torode says: ‘Bill Granger at Bills in Sydney made these famous. He now has restaurants all around the world and you can enjoy these from London to Tokyo, but should you not have one close by, here is my revision of Bills’ iconic Sydney brunch Ricotta Hot Cakes. And don’t think they are just a breakfast food, they also work well as a dessert and a snack for the little ones.’

60g butter

Pinch of salt

3 eggs

250ml buttermilk

350g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp runny honey

150g (drained weight) ricotta

Vegetable oil, for greasing

Apricot jam, to serve

1 Melt the butter with the salt in a small pan, then leave to cool a little. Break the eggs into a mixing bowl, add the buttermilk, then whisk together well. Add the melted butter, along with the flour, baking powder and honey and whisk until smooth and combined. Stir in the ricotta, then leave to sit for 10 minutes.

2 Heat a frying pan over a medium-low heat, until hot. Using kitchen paper, wipe the pan with a little vegetable oil. Ladle small amounts of the hot cake mix into the pan, each about the size of drop scones (you’ll need to cook them in batches). The mix will puff up a bit and bubbles will form on top as the hot cakes cook. When the cakes have light brown edges, flip them over, then cook for 2 mins on the second side. Pile them on to a warm plate, then repeat until you have cooked all the hot cakes.

About Healthy Magazine

How are you feeling today? I’m asking as this September edition is our first-ever dedicated healthy mind issue. With growing awareness of, and discussion around, mental health (one in five of us experiences mental health problems, according to the Government), we wanted to unpack some of the most commonly experienced problems, such as anxiety, depression and stress. The aim: to give you a ‘mental health toolbox’ to help you feel empowered as you navigate the obstacles of modern life, such as feeling at breaking point doing your ‘third shift’ (the first shift being your actual job and the second being chores at home; the third shift is managing your digital life). See our self-care strategies in Your Healthy Mind Protection Plan, p32. ‘For me, it’s definitely a very personal battle against an ongoing buzz of stress – a racing mind and heart in the middle of the night, or when I wake up – that I am just Not Going To Get Everything Done. Somewhere, a ball will be dropped. The only remedy that regularly works for me is exercise – cycling, swimming (my favourite for mindfulness) and, now, as I prepare to take on the Three Peaks Charity Challenge with others in my office (including our writer, Hattie), it’s walking whenever I can. We deep dive into the idea of exercise as prescription on p120. ‘Elsewhere, we’ve gone mad for manuka honey, which is definitely having A Moment. Discover why this wonder stuff is better than ever, p17, and what exactly you can do with it, p108. Editorial director @elliehughesUK PS If you want to know how Hattie and I get on in our mission to climb up (and down) the UK’s three tallest mountains in 24 hours this August, we’ll be keeping you updated on our website, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Delicious and nutritious – now that’s my kind of superfood!’
