Oven Temperature: 200ºC/400ºF/Gas 6
Cooking Time: 60-70 minutes
I always line my loaf tin with reuseable non-stick baking parchment so that the nut roast doesn't stick to the tin and comes out perfectly.
150g (6 oz) red lentils
300g (12 oz) mixed nuts (200g (8 oz) peanuts and 100g (4 oz) other nuts (e.g. walnuts, cashews, brazils) works well)
1/2 tin tomatoes
1 tbsp peanut butter
Thyme or mixed herbs
Salt (or crumbled stock cube) and pepper
1) Cook lentils in water for about 20 minutes.
2) Put nuts in a blender until finely chopped. Add all other ingredients and blend for a couple of seconds.
3) Press mixture into a greased loaf tin and cook for about 1 hour at 200ºC until solid and browned.
4) Good served with some sort of sauce
