Once again, some people are asking why my husband and I are making such a fuss and not eating the roast on Christmas not eat the roast? Well, the answer is quite simple, because adopting a vegan lifestyle and founding it is and was blog is and was the best decision of my life. I can still remember our first vegan christmas remember, everything was still so fresh that we even ate a piece of duck. Yes, guys, I’ll be honest, I only did that for the sake of the family. The second and third vegan Christmas it was already completely different, there we had our own Roast with it. Makes you wonder what we’ll do this year when we’re invited back. Answer: Take this deliciously hearty nut roast and feast for all it’s worth!
The perfect vegan nut roast for Christmas
There is already a Roast recipe on this blog, however this one is completely different. In today’s version, nuts and vegetables are the main ingredients and the highlight is the glaze of ketchup, Tamari maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, garlic and chili.
For the roast itself you don’t need exotic ingredients either, but mixed nuts, oatmeal, oil, onion, mushrooms, pumpkin, Italian herbs, garlic granules, smoked paprika, sage, thyme, black bell pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, tamari, Flax eggs and breadcrumbs. More magic also does not come, because the production is really simple.
TIP: If you want to prepare the roast a day ahead, no problem. Just make the dough for it, press it into the baking pan and put it in the fridge covered. The next day put in the oven and bake.
Is it Christmas again?
It’s still a little while away, but believe me, time is actually racing towards Christmas Eve again. At first you do not notice the Gingerbread in the supermarkets and at some point you are literally overwhelmed by the chocolate Santa Clauses. Personally, I’m already looking forward to the first snow, because I love to let our huskies romp around full of joy and frolic (pictures follow on Instagram @veganevibes, I hope you already follow me)?
To make your celebration of love and especially your roast as successful as possible, here are my top tips for a super relaxed Christmas:
- Organization: If you prepare several things in the kitchen at the same time, it can get stressful. That’s why I always prepare everything beforehand, weighed out and cut into bowls and dishes. Then everything goes quickly and the probability of forgetting something is rather low.
- Prepare: Ask yourself what you can prepare the day before. Maybe the gravy, or the side dishes? The dessert in any case. It’s really worth planning a little bit here, you want to spend some time with your guests after all.
- Test cooking: I always recommend with pleasure. Afterwards, you will know exactly whether the dish really tastes as you had hoped and how long you need to prepare it. When it gets serious and the guests arrive, you are the sovereign and casual professional who stands behind the stove with a smile.
