I am looking to make a Vegan nutroast for Christmas... I've google searched and have found a few recipes, but I was wondering if anyone has one that they have tried and tested and have really liked?

Please help make my Christmas food good

Thanks!

I used this recipe for Thanksgiving and I thought it was amazing!

LENTIL LOAF

Ingredients:

1 cup brown lentils
1/2 cup bulgar
3 cups unsalted vegetable stock OR 3 c. water + 2 vegan vegetable bouillon cubes
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 - 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1 small carrot, peeled and grated
1 stalk celery, diced
1/2 cup minced red bell pepper
1 tsp gr coriander
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground rosemary
1/2 tsp thyme
2 Tbsp unsalted tomato paste
1 Tbsp tamari soy sauce or Braggs liquid aminos
1 cup fresh bread crumbs: tear 4 slices stale bread into chunks, and whiz in a blender to make crumbs
Black pepper
Directions:

Cover the lentils in boiling water and let soak for one hour
Drain lentils
Bring lentils and bulgar to a boil in the vegetable stock, reduce to a simmer and cook uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed. The lentils and bulgar should be the consistency of thick porridge at this point, with the lentils and bulgar quite soft. If not, add a bit more water and continue cooking
Meanwhile, sauté the garlic and all the vegetables in the olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Add the lentils and bulgar, breadcrumbs, tomato paste, and tamari or Braggs to the sautéed vegetable. The mixture should be sticky and pliable, a bit like muffin batter, not doughy or stiff. If it seems too stiff or dry, add a bit more tomato paste or a Tbsp of oil or tahini.
Add salt and pepper to taste
Cook for 5 - 10 minutes, stirring, until the mixture is quite thick. Skip this step if the mixture seems quite thick already
Press mixture into the oiled loaf pan, and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes
Serve with Cashew Gravy or Chickpea Gravy

CHICKPEA GRAVY

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp olive oil or other cooking oil
1 tsp fresh garlic (1 - 2 cloves), peeled and minced OR 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger root OR 1/2 tsp dried
1/2 tsp gr. coriander
1/2 tsp gr. cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
4 cups unsalted vegetable stock OR 1 unsalted veggie bouillon cube dissolved in 4 cups boiling water)
1/3 cup chick pea flour (besan)

1 Tbsp soy sauce or Braggs Liquid Aminos or to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Optional: Salt to taste
Dissolve the veggie cubes in simmering water
Heat olive oil in a heavy saucepan on medium-low
Gravy Directions:

Sauté the garlic and ginger in the oil until it starts to brown
Add chick pea flour & spices and stir for 5 minutes
The flour and spices will start to brown and form a thick paste with the oil
Gradually add the veggie broth, stirring constantly with a whisk
Cook until thickened, add soy sauce or Braggs, salt & pepper to taste

this isn't a nut loaf, but a seitan. and it was FANTASTIC! I loved it, and it tastes similar to Field Roast's Celebration Roast, minus the phyllo dough, Then I made a mushroom gravy to go with it. It has a ****ake mushroom stuffing in the center.

^ Haha, I was wondering why you bothered to censor a mushroom


The Lentil Loaf sounds great
A shame it hasn't got any nuts in it though. I might just have to put a few in.

Seitan just keeps better and better. I made this recipe with a packet of onion soup mix for the broth, and chickpeas for the beans. I didn't make the stuffing
. It was delicious! Baked seitan is soooo much better than the boiled in broth, and so is adding beans!
I do wonder why I've never seen ground nuts added? I've never gotten around to trying that, but next time, I'm replacing ground walnuts for beans.
