Brazil Nut Roast

Brazil Nut Roast

One of the mainstay, classic recipe's of the early vegetarian movement. This was one of the most popular main courses that I used to make in the 80's when I owned and ran a vegetarian restaurant. It is also a delicious way for vegans to ensure that they add plenty of protein to their diet. You can adapt this recipe for any type of nut that you fancy and also try changing the vegetables and herbs that you use. Grating the vegetables keeps it light and prevents it being the chaffy, dry creation so mocked in the past. If you are not bothered about the recipe being vegan, use butter instead of the oil. Add a beaten egg too, it will be even lighter.

  • Time: 15 minutes to prepare. 40 minutes cooking time.
  • Complexity: easy

Chocolate Pecan Brownies

Chocolate Pecan Brownies

Chocolate and pecans are delicious together but you can try using hazelnuts or walnuts instead. If you don't want to use nuts then substitute the same weight of chocolate drops in place of the nuts. This recipe uses a whisked sponge method where it is important to try and keep all the air that you have whisked into the mixture from escaping. A light touch is best, so fold carefully.

  • Time: 20 minutes to prepare. 25 minutes to bake.

Granola
