I have never tried nutroast before I came to the UK. But since that time (oh my where 7 years have gone) I have eaten a lot of it!
And let me tell you not always it was an explosion of flavour, so I stopped waiting for someone else to sort out my perfect roast and started experimenting. Right now, I have two killer recipes, and this is one of them! I’m so proud to share it!
It’s a perfect main dish for Christmas dinner as it looks so festive and vibrant and uses seasonal veggies and star of the season which is cranberry.
Cranberry actually is a super berry, boosting with nutrients and has a unique sweet and tart flavour. I caramelised it slightly in the oven to bring out the natural sweetness at the same time I roasted root vegetables(no time is water here). It intensified the flavour and worked so well for the texture.
I used very Christmasy Mixed nuts from Waitrose as I love the variety and they all have such a distinctive taste which contributes to the final result. And I was lucky enough to find fresh cranberries as well, but in case they aren’t available to you frozen will work just fine. Don’t forget to defrost them first tho.
And here we have colourful, delicious nut roast, full of chunky vegetables, crunchy nuts and bursting juicy cranberries. It holds together when sliced perfectly so cut yourself a big slice pair it with cranberry sauce or vegan gravy and more roasted veg… At least is what I always do and Happy days, food is good, life
And in my opinion it is as joyful to eat as it is to look at!
