Tomato Nut Roast with Buckwheat and Seeds: Guest post on rickiheller.com

I am particularly fond of nut roasts. When I first became vegetarian over 20 years ago, I found that they filled the space left by meat. I grew up with a mother who regularly roasted a lump of meat surrounded by roast vegetables. Nut roasts became the lump of protein surrounded by vegetables on my plate. They are now my comfort food.  Today though you wont find a recipe on my blog because I have written a guest post on Ricki Heller's blog (formerly known as Diet Dessert and Dogs).

I have followed Ricki’s blog since 2007 when I was bowled over by her humour, her warmth and her brilliant recipe ideas. So when she asked me to write a guest post for her, I was delighted. After some thought on what to make, I decided to make my signature dish. A nut roast.  Head over to Ricki's blog to read my post and recipe for a vegan and gluten free Tomato Nut Roast with Buckwheat and Seeds.

  5. I am still ashamed to say that I've never made a nut roast. I'm a terrible vegan! This one is super appealing to me, I'm definitely going to make it this week. My dad has been cutting down on wheat, dairy, and upping his beans and nuts so I reckon he'll love this one :)

    1. Thanks little vegan bear - there are a lot worse things vegans can do than never making nut roasts - and I am sure you will make one some day - maybe this is the one for you :-)

    1. Yaya - so glad you loved it - sometimes you just don't want to wait to turn out something to look nice - it matters at a posh dinner but on a weeknight there is nothing wrong with just digging in :-)

  7. I am unnaturally attached to nut roasts. I know that they're a vegetarian/vegan stereotype, but they're so delicious who cares?! They're always a good thing for a Sunday roast too, I reckon.

  8. I’ve never had nut roasts, but I’m familiar with Ricki’s works. I have her desserts cookbook! :) I would love to try a nut roast someday!
