I am excited for Christmas! Why? Because I love nut roast and for some strange reason I can't eat it on any other day other than Christmas Day. I thought you might like this dish, so here I am today sharing with you healthy nut roast recipe.
If you don't know what nut roast is then imagine a rich savoury loaf made of nuts, vegetables, herbs and seasonings often served as an alternative to a traditional British style roast dinner. It's also, in my opinion, a very tasty vegan/vegetarian Christmas dinner option, so try something different this Christmas 🙂
For this healthy nut roast I replaced half of the nuts with lentils. As much as I love nuts they are quite high in calories and can be a bit heavy. Lentils are much lighter, yet equally nice and nutritious.
I like making the nut roast two days before Christmas because the flavours mix and the whole loaf comes together.
To reheat, simply put the nut roast on a baking tray, cover with foil and bake for around 10 minutes. The nut roast can be frozen for up to a month, so think January packed lunch with crusty bread and spicy spread?
As with most of my recipes, I have used my trustee Bamix Superbox Hand Blender to create almond flour, also known as ground almonds, and also to chop up the nuts. This little handy blender would make a fantastic gift this Christmas, so give it a thought.
This healthy nut roast can be both vegan and vegetarian. Below I am sharing the vegan version, but if you are vegetarian just replace flaxseed egg with normal egg and vegan mozzarella with traditional version.
