A Neb at Nut Roast II - Announcement

Calling all nut roast aficionados! Seeking nut roast novices! Back in 2008 I held a blog event called a Neb at Nut Roast to share my enthusiasm for nut roasts. A recent spate of nut roast love has encouraged me to hold the event again. It seems there are folk out there who are willing to join with me in adoration of the mighty nut roast. Or at least willing to make one! The event will close on 5 May 2011.

I wrote up a long post describing, praising, listing nut roasts when I held the event in 2008. The rules will also be the same. For information about nut roasts and the rules, read the 2008 Neb at Nut Roast invitation. You can also find more information on Wikipedia.

In the 2008 invitation I listed nut roasts on my blog and elsewhere. Since then I have continued to update that post with nut roasts that I have tried. I thought for this post it would be good to share with you some of the nut roasts around the blogosphere since my event:
These give you an idea of the infinite varieties of nut roasts. I'm always excited to discover new nut roast recipes and new ways to serve it.

I invite you to cook and nut roast and send it to me. Feel free to try one of the recipes from above, from my 2008 Neb at Nut Roast invitation list or from the 2008 Neb at Nut Roast round up. British vegetarian cookbook writers (such as Rose Eliot) and historic cookbooks are also good sources of nut roast recipes. Or create your own and use the Vegan Lunchbox's Magical Loaf Studio if you need some help. You could even recreate your favourite nut burger recipe as a nut roast.

Finally, I know that nut roasts are most often associated with Christmas - in fact my blog stats go up with all the nut roast searching in the festive season. However I must protest that nut roasts can fill the place of roast meat or meat loaf, which in my childhood were regular meals. But if you want a special occasion, then you could use nut roasts to celebrate St Patrick's Day, Easter, May Day or any birthdays and other anniversaries.

So get your thinking caps on and make a nut roast. Post it, use the event badge at the top of this post if you wish, and send it to me (gggiraffe07 AT yahoo DOT com DOT au) by 5 May 2011. I will post a round up soon after so we can all share the nut roast love.

  5. Lovely idea, I love a good nut roast. My Mother had her Christmas dinner yesterday (don't ask) and I had my very own nut roast which I guarded jealously - lentil and walnut which is my all time favourite. What a treat.

  7. I'm so pleased that you've decided to run this event again. I'm going to have a really good browse in my recipe books and all those links you've given to get some ideas and then I'll hopefully adapt and give it a go. My nut options are pretty limited though - cashews and peanuts are the only ones I'm not allergic to! I too have never made nor eaten nut roast!
