Best Ever Gourmet Nut Roast

Vegetarian nut loafIf you have to cook for a vegetarian this Christmas but don’t know what to cook…. This best ever Gourmet Nut Roast with our Cranberry, Port and Orange sauce is a a great idea. We cooked this for our vegetarian friend this week and they said it was the best they had ever tasted. Moist and flavoursome and although they weren’t initially sure about the combination of the cranberry sauce, when they tasted it they said the sweet acidity balanced the richness perfectly and made it feel very Christmassy! It is also very delicious as a side vegetable dish for meat eaters, as an alternative to stuffing (our children really enjoyed it!)
