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.

Sticky Toffee Pudding

Sticky Toffee Pudding

This recipe is adapted from The Suffolk Cook Book.  The recipe works very well with either gluten free flour or standard wheat flour.  Dove's gluten free baking flour is very good. The treacle in this recipe gives a great depth of flavour. Serve with the ultimate toffee sauce.
