Vegan Nut Roast

Vegan Nut Roast

Dec 19, 2022
Sick of missing out at Christmas because you're plant based or maybe you're just wanting a meatless option? We're taking you back in time for a vegetarian classic - nut roast! However we have made it vegan and if you're not a fan of mushrooms, this will be your new Christmas favourite. 

Vegan Nut Roast - Low waste and plastic free!

2 red onions
4 garlic cloves
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp italian herbs
250g mixed nuts
200g cooked orange lentils
200g cooked brown lentils
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 large carrot 
Salt & pepper to taste
2-3 tbsp cranberry sauce/jelly
Fresh rosemary as garnish (optional) 

  • Line a loaf pan with un-baking paper or compostable baking paper and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • Dice the red onion into 1x1cm squares and crush all of the garlic cloves.
  • On a medium to low heat add the oil, red onion and garlic, slowly cook and allow to sweat and caramelize.
  • Grate the carrot and add to the onions mix and allow to cook for a few more minutes.
  • In a food process pulse the nuts and lentils together until you have smooth-ish paste - a bit texture is good!
  • In a bowl add the nut and lentil paste, the onion/carrot mix, whole grain mustard and italian herbs, mix until thoroughly combine. If it's a little dry add some water or stock!
  • Taste and add seasoning to your taste.
  • Scoop the paste into the loaf pan and cover with tin foil.
  • Bake for 45 minutes until cooked, remove the tin foil and bake for another 15-20 minutes to crisp up the top.
  • Serve with cranberry spread all over the top and a good pour of plant based gravy.

Leftovers? Say no to food waste and store it correctly in one or our eco-stow sets or our reusable silicone pouches.

We liked cutting the leftovers into slices and frying it (or baking it) and popping it into sliders!
