Bonfire Night Recipe Roundup 2017
It’s Bonfire Night!
It’s my second-favourite celebration of the year (after Christmas, obvs). I looove fireworks and there’s something about getting together with friends and family out in the cold, dark night, and then retreating to comfort food while you share gossip and giggles. You need really hearty, warming food to counteract November’s chill and this year’s Bonfire Night Recipe Roundup has warmth by the blanket load in these ten delicious recipes.
1. Roasted Tomato Soup from I am a Honey Bee
There’s nothing more comforting and nourishing that a hot bowl of soup and this roasted-tomato flavour contains crushed red-pepper flakes for added warmth.
2. Pumpkin Spice S’mores Trifles from The Spice Train
It’s more of that pumpkin spice again – the quintessential flavour of autumn. Here it’s been cleverly used to make s’mores trifles and, believe me, you’ll definitely want s’more of those!
3. Pumpkin Russian from Lively Table
Now you’re talking. What better way to warm up from watching the fireworks than with a lovely White-Russian Cocktail, laced with pumpkin? Mine’s a double.
4. Winter Warmer Chilli from The Food Brood
Chilli Con Carne is one of the most common dishes to comfort and warm in the winter.
5. Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup from Travelling Oven
How beautiful is the colour of that soup? The sweetness of pumpkin and sweet potato make a dish that screams autumn!
6. Apple Date Caramel Bites
I love these little bites because they’re just like little sparklers – perfect for Bonfire Night! (They’re also vegan too – bonus!!)
7. Spicy Pork Ragu from The Food Brood
An easy tomato and pork-belly dish that is great served over pasta or gnocchi.
8. Smoky Sweet Potato Fries from Well-Fed Soul
I love sweet potatoes and these are smoky and decidedly moreish. Make the cooling dip to go with them if you want – or dip them in something else yummy! The world is your oyster!
9. Sugar-Free Marshmallows from Wholesome Yum
If you’ve had enough sugar from Halloween treats (or you can’t eat sugar) then these marshmallows are for you. They’re simple to make with only four ingredients, but you can feel virtuous while you’re eating them too!
10. Marmalade Sticky Sausages from Taming Twins
What is it about Bonfire Night that says ‘sausages’? When I was little, we always had ‘bangers’ (slang for ‘sausages’) after the ‘bangers’ (fireworks)! This is an easy one-tray bake that the kids will love.
