HERE IS THE RECIPE:

You Will Need:

Nut Roast

A sixth of a cup/30g/1oz of dairy-free margarine (try Nuttelex)
2 sticks of celery, finely chopped
1 medium leek, finely chopped
1 and a half cups of hot water
1 teaspoon of yeast extract (marmite, vegemite etc.)
3 cups/550g/16oz of ground cashew nuts (or other nuts of your choice - almonds work well too)
2 Tablespoons of soya flour
2 teaspoons of fresh herbs - winter savoury is great (if using dried; 1 teaspoon)
3 cups/160g/6oz of white bread crumbs
sea-salt and pepper to taste

Sage and Onion Stuffing

6 slices of wholemeal bread
half a cup/85g/3oz of dairy-free marg / Nuttelex
4 teaspoons of dried sage or 8 of fresh, chopped sage
1 finely chopped large onion

Directions:

Nut Roast

Melt the margarine (in a large pan for mixing) and cook the celery and leek in it for a few minutes.
Mix the yeast extract into the hot water (alternatively you could use any stock you like) and add this to the leek and celery.
Stir in the soya flour, nuts, herbs, breadcrumbs and salt and pepper and mix well. Allow to cool slightly while you grease a loaf tin.
Place half the nut roast mixture in the tin and press down well - then add the sage and onion stuffing (see recipe below), press down well again and place the rest of the nut roast mixture on top.
Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes at 180/360 then turn out of the tin and slice. Nice served with all the traditional trimmings.

Sage and Onion Stuffing

Melt the margarine in a saucepan and then cook the onion in it until soft.
Break up the wholemeal bread with your hands (into fairly small pieces) and then mix into the onion and margarine with the sage and salt.
Nut Roast
You can substitute wine (red or white) or soya milk for the water and yeast extract. The sage and onion stuffing is optional - it works just as well without it and might actually slice up easier! A layer of sliced mushrooms and garlic is an alternative to the stuffing.

We both have the same profile because I use the site most of the time and Laura just logs on every now and then so did not want to make a profile of her own. And writing we instead of I is only an extra letter so no it is no extra hassle..lol.

I NEED to make this some time. I did try, not this christmas, but the previous one, but I used less of the ingredients and it really just seemed like cashew butter tongue I never got to bake it because I left it in the fridge and forgot to bring it when I left to go to my partner's house. sad (Had way too much stuff to take already.)

I aim to make this properly one night soon though and I'll take photos and review it!!! happy

I also want to try Redwoods 'turkey' roast if I can find it. Just had the sanitatrium veggie roast this year, I don't mind that one at all though. happy
