Vegetarian Walnut Loaf
There are many vegetarian options for Sunday dinner, but you can't go far wrong with the classic walnut roast with all the trimmings. This walnut roast is particularly easy to make with no need to spend the whole day in the kitchen.
- Beat the eggs, shred 1 onion, 3 garlic cloves and parsley (small handful of fresh or teaspoon of dried). Mix the walnuts, cheese, bread crumbs, paprika, and ½ vegetable stock cube (grounded) together with the mixture from the first step. Knead until it becomes packed. Shape as a cylinder, wrap with cloth and tie up the extremes. Peal and chop the other onion and the carrots.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion, carrots, and the remaining 2 garlic cloves. Place the loaf in a pot. Add the sautéed ingredients and the remaining half of the stock cube. Add water to raise the level, but not to cover the loaf completely. Simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the loaf, untie it, and slice it thinly. Blend the leftover broth to obtain a thin sauce with which to garnish the loaf (opppps, I didn’t manage to blend mine this time as I was now rushing)
- Serve hot accompanied by sweet red peppers or other raw or roasted peppers (I used honey & cinnamon roasted butternut) P.s. this meal has way more nutrients than meat!
Mine tasted amazing! I hope yours will as well!!
