Vegan nut roast

29 November 2019

Christmas dinner doesn't have to be boring or complicated when cooking up a vegan option. Try this easy nut roast to serve with all the trimmings this festive season!

Nutritional highlights

Nuts are a valuable source of nutrients, particularly if you're following a vegan diet. They're a great source of protein, fats and fibre, meaning they really do pack a punch. Most of the fat found in plain nuts is what is classed as good fats (omega 3 and 6) meaning they're great for preserving brain and heart health.
