    cUte Kitty pUnk's Note:

    This is from a vegetarian cookbook - which is probably out of print - called "Cooking for Today Simple Vegetarian Recipes" published by Whitecap books... I've tried lots of different "meat" loaves and they all sucked - mostly I think b/c they contain Tofu. I love tofu - but I don't think it belongs in "meat" loaf. This Roast/Loaf turned out really delicious. I made it for a dinner party and everyone loved it - and they said it went good especially with the Mushroom sauce... I'm allergic to mushrooms and ate my slices with ketchup - it was still loverly :)

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat oil in a large skillet and fry the onion gently for 2-3 minutes. Add the rice and cook slowly for 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently.
    2. 2
      Add the vegetable stock, bring to a boil and then simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Add a little extra water if necessary. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
    3. 3
      Add the carrot, leak, sesame seeds, almonds, cheese, eggs and herbs to the mixture. Mix well and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to a greased 1 lb loaf pan, levelling the surface. Bake in a preheated oven at 350-F degrees for about 1 hour, until set and firm. Leave in the pan for 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      To make sauce, melt the butter in a small saucepan and fry the onion until dark golden brown. Add the mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes. Stir in flour, cook slowly for 1 minute and then gradually add the stock. Bring to boil, stirring constantly, until thickened and blended. Season to taste.
    5. 5
      Turn out the nut roast, slice and serve on warmed plates with fresh vegetables, accompanied by the sauce. Garnish with sprigs of Italian parsley if desired.

      This nut loaf turned out wonderfully. The only thing I might do differently is to finely chop my almonds next time for a slightly smoother texture but otherwise the flavor was excellent. For the mushroom sauce I used whole mushrooms and deglazed the pan with white wine, then added flour and broth to the right consistency. Wowza, what a heavenly sauce. Thank you, cUte Kitty pUnk for a yummy dinner last evening! [Made for Pick-A-Chef 2013]

      Thank you thank you thank you! This is the best nut roast I've ever tasted - and I've tried many different ones, believe me. The flavours in this are amazing. I hate mushrooms, this is the only recipe that I can tolerate them in :) Many nut roasts are stodgy and flavourless; this is pure gourmet. I had this book but stupidly gave it away as i didn't like any of the other recipes - thanks for giving me back this recipe :)
