Simple Cranberry Nut Roast | Vegan


 This is a paid collaboration with The Coco Road.

As soon as you mention that you're vegan at Christmas time, you see the panic on peoples faces and they ask the big question "but what do you eat for Christmas dinner?!" well, the list is almost endless now, but the one thing I always come back to at Christmas time is a good ol' classic nut roast. I absolutely love this and the best part is, you can make it from scratch using so many different ingredients and switch it up every time as they are so versatile.

As Christmas is only four days away (crazy I know!) I thought I would share with you, my all time favourite nut roast recipe that I use all year round, but is the perfect Christmas dinner main.

This nut roast has a sort of similar taste to stuffing due to the spices, which I absolutely love, but there is the perfect balance of crunch, flavour and softness.


Prep Time: 10 mins    Cook Time: 50 mins

You will need:

- 1 small leek
- 2 tsp Coco Road coconut oil
- 1 vegetable stock pot in 250ml boiling water
- 225g chopped mixed nuts
- 100g wholemeal bread crumbs
- 50g dried cranberries
- 1 tbsp sage
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 180C.

2. In a frying pan on low heat, sauté the chopped leak in 2 tsp of coconut oil. Cook for about 3-4 minutes.

3. Chop the mixed nuts into small chunks, you could even pulse them in a blender as long as they aren't chopped too small as it will make the nut roast go mushy.

4. Blend two pieces of wholemeal bread in a blender until they turn to fine bread crumbs.

5. Pour the wholemeal bread crumbs, chopped nuts and cooked leak into a large bowl and stir together until combined.

6. Pour in the vegetable stock along with the spices and dried cranberries, once again stirring together until completely combined.

7. Line a loaf tin with parchment paper or grease it with Coco Road coconut oil and spoon in the nut roast, spreading it out evenly.

8. Place in the oven for 50 minutes until the inside is completely cooked and the outside is crisp.

I honestly can't wait to enjoy this nut roast over Christmas time as it is just so delicious. You could even eat it cold it's that good!

You can purchase The Coco Road coconut oil on amazon. They offer a large 1.6L tub which is perfect for anyone who uses coconut oil really frequently, or smaller jars that are more suitable for fitting in cupboards.

What's your favourite food at Christmas time?
