    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.

    Buttermilk Rusks

    Buttermilk Rusks

    This is a traditional South African recipe which is also similar to a Suffolk rusk. Given to me by my husbands cousin; Peta Gale, and handed down through the family. The rusk is an early morning ritual, dipped into a cup of tea! This recipe makes about 50 small rusks that will keep in an airtight container for weeks.
