As we reach for our winter coats to keep us warm on the commute to work, we’ve come up with three delicious seasonal dishes to warm the soul at work. Nourish yourself and enjoy all the benefits seasonal foods has to offer like lower food costs, nutrient dense dishes and dodging the office illness epidemic with a boost to your immunity!

Wild Mushroom & Leek Risotto

This earthy dish encompasses all the flavours of autumn and winter. With all the wet and windy weather making the trip into work a chore, this dish will warm the cockles of one’s heart.  Enjoy the taste of wild mushrooms topped with a rocket salad and white wine vinegar dressing.

If you’re snowed under at work, and you want us to take the stress of preparing lunch for a meeting, we’re here to help. Whether it’s a winter warmer of a more traditional working lunch, we’re able to supply bespoke meals to your office.

Curry Parsnip Soup with Parsnip Crisps

This spicy soup is a great winter warmer, transforming an ordinary parsnip soup into a fiery gourmet dish. Served with parsnip crisps which are baked in the oven, a healthier alternative to frying. This dish is ideal to take into work and heat up the next day for lunch.

 

Pearl Barley Risotto

Comfort food at its best! This doesn’t take long to create, just make a stock, added onions, pearl barley and red or white wine depending on your taste. We’d recommend red barley this time of year for a richer flavour. Choose your favourite root vegetable like carrots and swede to turn this dish into a loved favourite.

Served with a nice wilted kale salad which can be bought from local supermarkets, this dish is full of anti-oxidants, vitamin C and iron. Treat yourself to a super healthy winter lunchtime treat.

Hazelnut Brittle

For dessert, the seasonal ingredient of choice has to be hazelnuts.  This homemade brittle is sure to win the hearts of your colleagues. Go on, make a batch and take them into work for a sweet, festive treat. Get some ‘brownie points’ in the bag for the New Year! Excuse the food-pun, we couldn’t resist.
