Vegetarian Nut Roast
Here is a nut roast made with mushrooms and cashews that is a healthy and nutritious variation of
the popular meatloaf.
This lacto-ovo vegetarian loaf is a real winner. Easy to
make, elegant and delicious both cold and hot. The day after you could put a slice on a piece of bread,
try Swedish knackebrod, and top it with either pickled red beets or
And, yeah this dish gets better and better! I love to make this for the Christmas Buffet. It is festive, filling and lasts for days in the fridge.
Or maybe try serving a slice as a paté with cornichons (small
pickled cucumbers) and a dot of cranberry sauce on some lettuce for a
super elegant appetizer!
You could also top it with BBQ sauce for a lovely glaze. Try my homemade BBQ sauce here.
Or serve the cashew and mushroom roast simply with ketchup and
mashed potatoes, whatever you like best. This veggie and nut loaf lasts for
at least 4-5 days in the fridge (and gets tastier and tastier!).
