Nut Roast Recipe – A perfect vegetarian dish for a healthy meal
Nut Roast is a classic vegetarian dish that is full of flavor, textures, and contrasts. It is an amazing opportunity to love your vegetables and create a beautiful meal that can be enjoyed by everyone. In this video, Jamie Oliver will teach you a recipe for nut roast that is easy to follow and full of nutritious ingredients.
To start, preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Begin by dicing the squash into roughly 1cm chunks and add a couple of tablespoons of oil. Place the squash in the pan and cook it until it starts to soften. Then, add vac-pac chestnuts, one finely chopped onion, two cloves of garlic, and celery to the pan. Season with sea salt and pepper, a half teaspoon of cayenne, and a little pinch of smoked paprika. Add one level teaspoon of dried oregano and a couple of field mushrooms that have been crudely cut up. Finally, add 40 grams of butter and a little bit of lemon zest to give a nice contrast.
Once you remove the veg from the heat, prepare the mixed nuts. Take 100 grams of mixed nuts, such as brazils, walnuts, hazelnuts, and cashew nuts, and bash them until they are crumbly. Add the nuts to the bowl along with quinoa, dried fruit, and four lovely large free-range eggs. The eggs will help to bind the dish, so mix everything together until you get a good consistency.
Rub a baking dish with butter and line it with greaseproof paper. Pour the nut roast mixture into the dish and squeeze it in as much as you can. Place the dish in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until it turns golden and crisp.
Now, it’s time to make the sauce. Heat a little olive oil in a pan and add two chilis, a stick of cinnamon, garlic, and a small onion cut into quarters and then into eighths. Add some Thyme to the pan and coat it with the fat, then move it to the side to crisp up. Add tomatoes to the pan and a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Simmer for 10-20 minutes to develop the flavors.
Remove the nut roast from the oven and turn it onto its side, removing the greaseproof paper. Pour the sauce over the top and grate some nice bits of cheddar cheese. Top it off with a chili and cinnamon stick and sprinkle with thyme tips. Put the dish back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
Finally, take the dish out of the oven and serve with mashed potatoes and seasonal kale. Pour the sauce over the nut roast and enjoy your delicious, healthy meal.
In conclusion, nut roast is an excellent choice for a vegetarian meal that is both nutritious and delicious.
