I know that the holidays are almost over, but that doesn’t stop you from enjoying a nice, healthy roast. The New Year’s celebration is coming up, and this dish would be the perfect addition to the feast you have planned out already.

The nice thing about this roast is that it’s totally meat-free. You can eat all the roast you want, without worrying about the extra grease on your diet. It tastes great, and your vegetarian pals will no doubt pat you on the back for a job well done. The taste is no different from an actual roast meat. And since you’re using lentils, you’re not skipping on the protein content. You should give this recipe a try.

Ingredients:

For the Roast

2 large onions, thinly sliced

8 ounces dark brown lentils

12 ounces macadamia nuts, shelled and finely chopped

4 ounces walnuts, shelled and finely chopped

4 ounces hazelnuts, shelled and finely chopped

2 tablespoons chopped thyme

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

1 teaspoon chopped rosemary

4 tablespoons dry red wine

salt & fresh ground pepper

1 tablespoon chopped savory

1 bay leaves

For the Stuffing:

4 ounces whole wheat breadcrumbs

6 sage leaves, chopped

5 tablespoons dry red wine

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 onions, sliced and chopped

salt & fresh ground pepper

For the Topping

3 ounces whole wheat breadcrumbs

4 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Directions

Put the lentils, sliced onion and bayleaf in a pan of water, bring to the boil and continue boiling until they are well softened.

Remove the bay leaf then drain and mash the onion and lentils.

Add the nuts to the lentil puree then stir in the herbs, wine and seasoning.

For the stuffing gently cook the onion in the oil until the onions soften.

Remove the pan from the heat and mix in the breadcrumbs, seasoning, sage and red wine.

Take a flat oven proof dish and spread half the lentil and nut mixture over the base.

Spread the stuffing mixture over it then cover with the remaining lentil mixture.

Shape the whole to resemble an oblong loaf with the stuffing completely inside.

Mix together the topping mixture of breadcrumbs, oil and sesame seeds then press the mixture over the roast.

Bake in pre-heated oven at 400f for about 45 minutes or until the topping mixture is brown and crispy
