Vegan nut roast

    1 hour 45 min

    This is a very versatile recipe. You can try it with many different combinations of nuts, seeds and vegetables. For best results, it's worth blitzing the sunflower seeds into a coarse flour in a food processor.

    An outer crust with a liquid centre. Terrible. I flat out don't believe that you ever made this nut roast.  -  09 Nov 2014


    I found this incredibly simple despite being something of a culinary buffoon myself. This was my first foray into the loafy paradise of the humble nut and all of its associates as I have decided to dip a tentative toe it the morally cleansing waters of veganism. As such, and having belatedly read the above critiques of this recipe, I had a pessimistic view of the upcoming Sunday Dinner, which I capitalise with due intent. However, the surprise that then occurred can only be described as pleasant. A truly scrumptious ethical delight. Add some flax for extra righteousness.  -  10 Sep 2017


    This recipe is quite inaccurate only use a max of 500ml soya milk, if you reduce the bread by 50gms and up the amount of nuts it is ok, you also need twice as much baking time than is quoted.  -  25 Dec 2016
