When the leaves slowly change colour and fall to the ground, it means only one thing – the days are getting shorter and the temperatures are slowly cooling down. Autumn is here! But this season also has a lot to offer.

Autumn has arrived and with it a whole host of seasonal ingredients just waiting to be transformed into delicious dishes. Vegetables like pumpkins, potatoes and tomatoes are especially delicious at this time of year! And local fruit classics like apples and pears taste better than ever.

In this article, we present you with simple and quick recipes that you can try out during this cosy time of year.


  • 500g Hokkaido pumpkin
  • 800g chopped tomatoes (2 tins)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese
