Method

  • 1. Preheat oven 200°C. Grease and line a 3 cup capacity loaf tin with baking paper.

  • 2. In a fry pan heat the olive oil and gently sauté the onion until soft, then add the carrot, salt and sage. Cook gently for another 5 minutes until the carrot is soft. Set aside to cool.

  • 3. In a bowl combine the carrots with the remaining ingredients. Gently press into the loaf tin. Bake for 40 minutes or until firm to touch. Sit for 5 minutes before removing from the tin and cutting into slices.

  • Tip: If you prefer you can cook the nut roast in muffin tins. Grease 6 half-cup sized muffins tins and line the base with a disc of baking paper. Gently press the mix in the tins and bake for 20 minutes. Delicious by itself or with a light tomato sauce.
