Maggie & George's Special Nut Roast
From: Rosalind Ray, Basildon, Essex, UK

I was given this recipe by some very special friends, hence the title. It never fails, it is easy, versatile and scrummy. Feeds 6 easily.

  • 1 large chopped onion 1oz wholemeal flour
  • 1/4 pt vegetable stock 1 tsp yeast extract
  • dash of soy sauce 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 3oz wholemeal breadcrumbs 1oz rolled oats
  • 8oz mixed nuts chopped (or 6oz brazil nuts grated & 2oz sesame seeds)
  • 1 level tsp dried mixed herbs or 2 tbsps fresh parsley chopped

Gently fry the onion for 5 minutes

Stir in the wholemeal flour, then add the vegetable stock, yeast extract and soy sauce.
Keep stirring until this thickens, without burning.

Put this mixture in a large bowl with the chopped tomatoes, chopped nuts, wholemeal breadcrumbs, rolled oats and herbs.

Mix well together and spoon into an oiled ovenproof dish or loaf tin.

Bake for 35-45 minutes @ 375F (MK4, 190C)

Gently turn out onto plate/serving dish and allow to cool slightly before slicing.

Try it cold in a sandwich with your favourite mustard/pickle.
