Ultimate Nut Roast

I rarely choose nut roast in a restaurant because they are usually dry and tasteless. This is amazing!  I make a batch, slice it into about 8 and freeze for another day. A great way to get plant based protein. You can use it for a roast dinner, have it with a salad for lunch or take it on a picnic and eat it cold. 


1 leek finely shredded

1 onion finely shredded

2 carrots grated

2 cloves of garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

300gms mixed nuts

180gms chestnuts

large handful of apricots

4 tbsp nut butter

a dash of plant milk

1 veg stock cube



Fry the leeks, onion, garlic and carrots in the olive oil until soft.

Blitz the nuts and the stock cube in a food processor or chop them very finely. 

Chop the apricots and chestnuts into small pieces.

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until they are combined

Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper and pack in the mixture

Bake at 180 degrees/gas 4 for 40 mins.

Turn out and slice.
