I have been developing my Nut Roasts over years. It's only recently I invented this really smooth base for my Roasts, by blending cashew with an onion. I discovered this perfect combo accidentally, and have used it often ever since. 

The earlier recipes for Nut Roast available, either use breadcrumbs and Eggs or Cheese to bind! They weren't great for vegans or gluten avoiders!

The cashew mixture works perfectly as a base which you can add anything to. I have another recipe on my site for Red Lentil and Cashew Roast. As it's Christmas, I thought it would be fun to add more seasonal ingredients with this one.

This Roast goes so well with Cranberry Sauce, Vegetables and Gravy. 

Ingredients

 3 cups Cashews
 1 cup Walnuts
 1 cup Hazelnuts
 ½ tsp Nutmeg
 1 Onion
 4 Garlic Cloves
 ½ tsp Cinnamon
 2 Cloves
 350 g Fresh Cranberries
 Packet Whole Chestnuts
 3 tbsp Coconut Sugar
 Water
