How to create A Very Veggie Christmas
I run a variety of Christmas courses and have a wealth of recipes for Christmas dinner but you can’t beat a simple nut roast.
A nut roast is a traditional veggie main course which goes down well with everyone so it’s worth making two to make sure there’s enough to go around.
Different nuts and ingredients give different flavours but one of my favourites is Cashew and Carrot Nut Roast.

I love cooking with cider; this dish is a great accompaniment to the Carrot and Cashew Nut Roast.
Root Vegetables with Cranberries
A great way to cook vegetables. The cranberries give a lovely jewelled effect. Perfect for your festive entertaining!
Ready in 45 minutes. Serves 4
500g selection of carrots, parsnips, sweet potato
2 tbsp extra virgin rapeseed oil
1 tbsp brown sugar
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp mixed spice
50g cranberries fresh or dried
75ml local cider or apple juice
water as needed
salt and black pepper
Peel and chop the vegetables. Steam or boil until part cooked. Drain.
Put the oil, sugar spices and cider into a pan. Mix well then add the vegetables. Bring to the boil and simmer until cooked.
Add the cranberries towards the end of the cooking time. Add more water or cider as needed.
My favourite local cider has to be Malvern Gold.
Don’t forget the Brussels sprouts!
Finely shred or grate some Brussels sprouts. Heat some oil in a large pan or wok and fry. Finish off with some toasted sesame seeds and a dash of soy sauce.
