Autumn is the year's best time for hearty salad. Here are six of our favourites.

Lemon recipes

Overnight pork shoulder with fennel

There's something super-comforting about cooking overnight - you wake up in the morning to the fragrant dish, ready for a long lazy lunch ahead. Some bread, mustard and a leafy salad are all you need to serve with this beautiful cut, which is ideal for slow-cooking, but a potato or cauliflower puree would also be a welcome addition.

Slow-cooked lamb in Soave with roast cherry tomatoes and semolina gnocchi


You'll need

1 boneless lamb shoulder (about 2kg), fat trimmed (see note) 10 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 15 anchovy fillets ½ bunch each of oregano and thyme 4 rosemary sprigs 200 ml extra-virgin olive oil 400 ml semi-dry white wine, such as Soave 1 litre (4 cups) chicken stock   Semolina gnocchi 600 ml milk 175 gm white semolina For seasoning: freshly ground white pepper 2 eggs 180 gm finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano 100 gm butter, melted, for brushing   Roast cherry tomatoes 1 bunch basil 300 gm (2 branches) truss cherry tomatoes 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 40 ml extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For semolina gnocchi, bring milk to the boil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan, then add semolina in a thin steady stream, whisking continuously. Bring back to the boil, stir continuously until thick (5-7 minutes), season to taste and remove from the heat. Meanwhile, lightly whisk eggs with half the Parmigiano-Reggiano, then add to semolina mixture, stirring to combine. Pour into a lightly oiled 20cm square cake tin and refrigerate until chilled (3-4 hours), then turn out, cut into triangles and set aside.
  • 02
  • For roast cherry tomatoes, preheat oven to 180C. Place basil in a roasting pan, top with tomatoes, scatter with garlic and drizzle with olive oil. Roast until just tender and skins start to split (10-15 minutes), set aside and return to oven to warm through during last 5 minutes of baking semolina.
  • 03
  • Reduce oven to 160C. Place lamb shoulder skin-side down on a work surface and scatter with one-third of the garlic and 5 anchovies. Season to taste, roll into a cylinder and tie at intervals with kitchen string.
  • 04
  • Scatter half the herbs over base of a casserole, place lamb on top, then pour over olive oil. Rub remaining herbs and garlic over lamb, add wine, stock and remaining anchovies. Cover with lid, ensuring lamb is not touching lid. Bake for 45 minutes, reduce heat to 140C and cook until very tender and juices run light pink when centre of lamb is pierced with a skewer (45-50 minutes). Rest, covered, for 10 minutes.
  • 05
  • Increase oven to 200C. Place semolina triangles on a buttered baking tray, brush with butter, scatter over remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano. Bake until golden (5-10 minutes). Serve immediately with thickly sliced lamb, pan juices and roast cherry tomatoes.
