Recipe Ingredients for Festive Lentil and Nut Roast

2/3 cup red lentils
1 cup hazelnuts
1 cup walnuts
1 large carrot
2 celery stalks
1 large onion, sliced
4 oz mushrooms
4 tbsp butter
2 tsp mild curry powder
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp salt
4 tbsp parsley, fresh, chopped
2/3 cup water

Recipe Directions for Festive Lentil and Nut Roast

  1. Soak the lentils for 1 hour in cold water and drain well. Grind the nuts in a food processor until quite fine but not too smooth. Set the nuts aside.

  2. Chop the carrot, celery, onion and mushrooms into small chunks, then pass then through a food processor or blender until they are quite finely chopped.

  3. Fry the vegetables gently in the butter for 5 minutes then stir in the curry powder and cook for a minute. Cool.

  4. Mix the lentils with the nuts, vegetables and remaining ingredients.

  5. Grease and line the base and sides of a long 2 lb loaf tin with greaseproof paper or a sheet of foil. Press the mixture into the tin. Preheat oven to 357 degrees.

  6. Bake for about 1 to 1 1/4 hours until just firm, covering the top with a buttered paper or piece of foil if it starts to burn. Allow the mixture to stand for about 15 minutes before you turn it out and peel off the paper. It will be fairly soft when cut as it is a moist loaf.
