We recognise that you probably won’t have much spare time in-between checking on your roast potatoes, parsnips and the turkey itself, so to help, we’ve chosen this simple nut roast in tomato sauce recipe.
Fry the onion and mushrooms in a pan until soft. Add the vegetable oil, grated carrot, yeast in water, mixed nuts, almonds, breadcrumbs and sage before seasoning with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin. Cover with tin foil and bake for thirty mins, until golden brown.
To make the tomato sauce, heat the garlic, extra virgin olive oil and rosemary in a pan. Add a pinch of salt and pepper before pouring in the tomato puree and leaving to simmer for 15 minutes.
Chop the loaf into 2cm thick slices and serve with the tomato sauce on the side in a gravy boat.
