What a year this has been for the plant-based world!
The food industry is tapping into the ‘vegan trend’ with huge profits, and continuous significant growth is projected. This year the choice of Xmas vegan food products is immense…
Keeping to the plant-based way of eating involves lots of veggies, wholegrains and fruits which equals great health and vitality!
This is my lentil and nut roast, which I have made and we have enjoyed as a family for the past 4 years. There seems a lot of ingredients, but it is easy to make and perfect to batch cook. You can freeze and make in advance of Xmas day. It’s delicious and completely nourishing too!
My Xmas plant roast
The vegetables can be varied, and sometimes I have used squash or pumpkin in the recipe too. There is quite a bit of preparation, but totally worth it. Get those Xmas tunes on and get to chopping! xxx
Place onion, pepper, leek and garlic in a large pan and heat until sizzling (add a little water if starting to stick)
Next, add the rest of the ingredients and mix (add chia/flax last)
Place the mixture in a loaf tin (prelined with baking paper) and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees celsius for 50-70 minutes
Allow time to cool then turn out and slice. Serve or freeze - will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days
