Recipe | Nut and Mushroom Roast – vegan meatloaf

This is a really easy recipe for a nut roast/vegan meatloaf. The photos are not flattering as lets be honest, its a brown square, but it tastes lovely, and has a nice soft texture.

You will need a food processor to chop up the ingredients

Cooking time is 1hr but prep time is only about 20mins or less

I have used 3 different types of nuts, as they all have different flavours and nutrients. Hazelnuts are a good source of vitamin E and manganese. Brazil nuts are a good source of magnesium. Cashew nuts are a good source of copper and zinc.

In this recipe you will need Granovita mushroom pate . I got mine in Co-op, but I have also bought it in tescos before, and I think I’ve seen it in Asda. It’s worth seeking out, not just for this recipe. It’s delicious on toast!!

  • 160g cooked mushrooms or tinned mushrooms
  • 1 tin beans of your choice (I used black beans)

  • In a food processor chop the mushrooms, nuts, onion, garlic and beans into a fine mince like mixture
