When I stumbled across this recipe in Jamie Oliver’s Autumn magazine I knew I had to try it and what better week than when I am trying to reach my slimming world target weight! Fear not, a three mile run this morning allowed me have a few extra calories for lunch today and the extra calories used chattering with my pal also helped my cause!
To make this delicious lunch you will need;
- 1 kg grapes
- 1 tbsp demerara sugar
- few sprigs of fresh thyme
- olive oil
- 200g brie cheese
- 50g smoky cheddar
- 75g creme fraiche
- handful of fresh sage leaves
Preheat your oven to 220 degrees.
Place in oven until grapes are starting to burst, should take around 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and spoon over the creme fraiche, the chunks of cheddar, torn brie and the fresh sage leaves and return to oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted!
I made a loaf of Paul Hollywood’s delicious white bread to have alongside the roasted grapes and you can find the very simple recipe for it here!
It was absolutely delicious and so satisfying to cut through the crispy exterior to find a “good bake” inside! The roasted grapes, fresh bread and some honeyed walnuts were a perfect lunch for a rainy miserable day and would also make a completely delicious fireside supper!
