1/1 Photo of Vegan (Strict Vegetarian) Nut Roast à La Peta
1 hr 30 mins
Found this recipe on the internet at boutell.com. Haven't tried it yet but I am planning on it. Richer than a basted capon, tenderer than a roasted turkey, this dish will please anyone at your Thanksgiving or other holiday meal. This roast has two parts: the roast itself plus a middle layer of "stuffing." But if you make it right, everything kind of oozes together once it's done, and the result is heavenly.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 tablespoons oil or 2 tablespoons margarine
- 2 large onions, chopped fine
- 3 cups raw cashews
- 1 1/2 cups bread
- 1 cup soup stock (or water)
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1(From the first list:) Cook the onion and garlic in the oil or margarine until tender, and remove from the heat.
- 2Chop the cashews by hand or in a food processor; cut up the bread as well. Add the cashews and bread to the onion, then add the vegetable stock, salt and pepper, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Put half of this mixture into a small, non-stick loaf pan (or line a regular loaf pan with parchment paper if a non-stick pan is unavailable).
- 3Mix together all the ingredients from the second list. Put the mixture on top of the stuff in the loaf pan, and add the rest of the first mixture so that there are three layers of food in the pan.
- 4Place the pan on a baking sheet or in a larger loaf pan (in case it overflows while cooking), and bake at 400 degrees F for half an hour. The top should be browned.
- 5Let the roast cool for a few minutes, then turn the pan over and serve the roast on a plate (or simply serve it out of the pan). Serve with gravy if desired, keeping in mind that it is a very rich dish.
- 7The roast will take about an hour to prepare.
- 8The stuffing works well on its own -- and I often make extra!
- 9The roast refrigerates well and can be frozen for a few months and microwaved back to life.
- 10As shown, recipe makes roughly six servings.
- 11Vegetable stock is often available in concentrate or as bouillon cubes, in health-food stores and in general grocery stores. If you really can't find it, use water.
- 12When serving this roast, please inform the diners that the recipe is based on one by PeTA.
- 13When preparing this recipe and any other food you enjoy, please use organically-grown vegetables, fruits, grains, and flavorings. The Earth you save may be your own.
