Nut roast is ideal for a main or a side to a hearty winter meal. A perfect choice for vegans, but this recipe will be loved by meat eaters and vegetarians too. This tasty dish is super high in protein and fiber and is also filled with tasty vegetables so it’s a great healthy choice. The wine adds a lovely richness but the recipe will work fine without too.
