Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Made it for xmas practice. love the root veg in the loaf so it's not as heavy as other loaves, was left a big stuck on sides but greens came to the rescue! Warning: Parmesan isn't vegetarian, so make sure to leave it out if any herbivores are at the dinner table - 15 Dec 2011

Lovely and moist but far too tomatoey! Other recipes that I've looked at use egg to give the nut roast its moisture, this is definitely something I will try next time as I found that it just tasted like chopped tomatoes. Also, I replaced the beetroot with mushroom. I would use less carrots in future too! - 01 Jan 2015
