    Hello, Melissa here! If like me, you’re in the UK, it usually means your salad needs to fit all weather and these ones really do. So here are 7 Summer salads for rain or shine; a delicious mix of hearty and wholesome with fresh and zesty. Lots of great ones to share as well as ones to make double and have the next day or take to a picnic. As ever, feel free to add in any ingredients you’ve got that need using up to minimise your kitchen waste and make your food go further.   1. Lentil Salad with Sumac Dressing This lentil salad with a delicious sumac dressing is a winner with everyone! If you haven’t been swayed with lentils just yet, maybe you will after this. A great hearty salad for a sunny weekend and great to take on a picnic too.

Melissa’s 10 Recipes to use up your leftover Pumpkin

Melissa Hemsley Pumpkin Recipes

Hello, Melissa here!

Every year after Halloween around 12.8 million pumpkins go to waste so let’s embrace the delicious veg & find ways to keep enjoying them all season long (Pumpkins are in season October-February/March). So if you’ve found yourself with lots of squash & pumpkins and aren’t sure what to do with them then here are a few of my favourite Autumnal recipes for loving your leftovers and making your meals and money go further. Feel free to swap all the squash in these recipes for pumpkin!

And if you’re feeling even more inspired to use your Pumpkins then why not try grating them into hearty Lasagnes & delicious Gratins. For seasonal breakfasts, try pumpkin porridge or grate it and simmer with apples and cinnamon for a lovely porridge topping or with yoghurt. Roast it and scoop out the tender flesh when it cools slightly before turning into pumpkin puree which you can then freeze or make pumpkin pies or tarts- delicious! And don’t forget about the seeds- wash & dry them then roast for 15 mins in 200c with lots of salt & vinegar or your favourite spices and eat as a snack or in salads or on top of soups or roasted pumpkin hummus. The possibilities are endless!

I’ve shared a few recipes below from my cookbook Eat Green too, so if you’ve got that then look out for my Pumpkin & Sage Risotto, HasselBack Squash, Roasted Squash with Mojo Verde, Squash & Lentil Curry and my Autumnal Spiced Squash & Kale Salad.
