Vegetarian Nut Roast | Anna Jones

Christmas Nut Roast Hi FoodTube I’m Anna Jones and I’m gonna show you how to make my nut roast galette on Christmas day I eat this with all the
trimmings. It’s vegan it’s gluten-free, it’s dairy free. A beautiful buttery nut crust topped with winter greens
and pesto and delicious squash. We’re using four
types of nuts here but I’m just gonna get a couple roasting so that all the butteryness and the oils start coming out them. 100 grams of pistachios here and 100 grams of sunflower seeds now these are both amazing when you’re eating a bit less meat or perhaps no meat at Christmas it’s great
to have some protein because that will fill you up So they’re just going to go in the oven for 5 minutes at 180 So I’ve got 100 grams of the toasted pistashios here and 100 grams of sunflower seeds These vac packed chestnuts and there’s 100 grams there as well and these are gonna add a bit of texture and moisture and they’re gonna bind this mixture together. some thyme and maple syrup and some olive oil Pick the leaves off straight into here, next you add the zest of a lemon It adds freshness, it’s kind of like a third seasoning, I kind of think of salt pepper and lemon as the seasonings to use. So now I’m going to add a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup. The maple syrup is gonna bind the mixture together it’s going to be what sort of sets all the nuts and makes it into a galette dough then you need to add a couple of
tablespoons of olive oil this is going to help bind your mixture as well and then the last thing it’s just a pinch of
salt and pepper This has all come together now to form one delicious buttery nutty dough and this is exactly what you want. You get a sheet of greaseproof paper Pop it down on your chopping board Then tip out the galette dough onto your first piece of greaseproof and just press it out to form a circle then get another piece of greaseproof paper So you want to roll it out until it’s about half a centimetre thick So have a look at this you can see the
lovely green of the pistachios come through there and
I’m just going to neaten it up around the edges to make sure it’s an even
thickness so it cooks really evenly in the oven and that’s going to go in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes still
at 180 So we’re gonna get on with roasting the squash. We’re just going to use half a squash here so scoop the seeds out of this this bit of squash. Cut the squash
now into, into little sort of one and a half centimetre slices We’re just gonna simply season this with a
little bit of salt and pepper and a little drizzle of olive oil That goes into the oven until its golden brown So now we’re gonna get on with the topping for the galette I’ve got some red onions that have been sweating away in a little bit of olive oil With a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of salt and pepper for about 15 minutes I’m just gonna take a few of these onions
out to put on top at the end. I’ve got some lovely cavolo nero here Some different coloured chards, with the chard you can actually eat the stork. Into the
pan with the onions. So I’m just going to roughly shred these greens and then the whole lot goes into the pan with the onions and they’re just gonna wilt away for about five minutes until they’ve
softened slightly and then we’re gonna blitz them up with the rest of the topping ingredients So we just need a couple of sprigs of sage roughly chop that. So this whole lot, the onions the greens and the sage just need another couple of minutes to wilt down before we get on with everything else.
This is all wilted down now and it smells absolutely amazing, you can smell the woodiness of the sage in there You can smell the sweetness of the onions and I know that this topping is going to be really really good so the final ingredient that we’re going to use here are cashew nuts. Now these have been soaked overnight but you can just soak them for a few hours if you don’t have that long And pop those in and we’re going to add this really nice onion, greens and sage mixture a few tablespoons of olive oil. A good pinch of sea salt A good pinch of pepper and then I’m just going to add the juice of a lemon So the lid goes on and we just give it a quick blitz So that’s looking great, one last thing you need to add to this, is just a couple of handfuls of spinach. So I keep the spinach raw so that way you get loads more nutrients and also it just gives the pesto a really lovely green colour so
this is going to be an amazing topping for the galette. Wow so that’s exactly What I was after, all around the edge has gone really buttery and crispy, you can see all the bits of pistachios and sunflower seeds and it’s basically turned into a massive delicious savoury biscuit, the squash is perfect too its golden brown and caramlised around the edges, that’s exactly what I wanted. Next we’re going to pile on some of the
delicious green topping so you can see how creamy the cashew
nuts have made this Second to last thing is the squash I’m going to lay they beautiful boats of squash all over the galette. And finally to crown
it off, remember those onions I saved from earlier they’re kind of deep scarlet, sweet and delicious and I’m just gonna scatter those over the top So enough of the talking, I’m going to have a taste of this a little slice Hmm, that is really delicious the biscuity base, all the flavour packed into that pesto the sweet squash and onions absolutely
amazing And I’d be really, really proud to put this in the
middle of my Christmas table So for more great Christmas recipes go to, the links

  1. Looks amazing! I love nut roasts! Also, I love your book Anna!

    It would be great if you could check out my channel as I'm a teenager with a passion for cooking 🙂

  2. Can't afford to buy so many premium ingredients.

  3. Actually you get more nutrients from the spinach when you lightly cook it as opposed to eaten raw! otherwise love this dish 🙂

  4. shouldn't you not eat raw spinach due to oxalic acid… looks tasty as though!


  6.  i felt sorry for all the ingredients you wasted

  7. The food looks nice, thanks for the recipe, I think you should have tied back your hair though.

  8. Holy Calories haha, looks good though!

  9. Well hello gorgeous 

  10. that nutty base would make amazing crakers if baked a little longer! 

  11. RЯвно гонево

  12. The cooking process proves that not every recipe is complete until someone make it fully with his character and existence!

  13. I must haved missed the butter she was using :/

  14. I made this last night! My canaries L-O-V-E-D it. 

  15. Well, lads, better pop out your Christmas nuts for roasting, there's cooking to be done! 

  16. amazing new recipe.. very refreshing!

  17. I don't know what everyone is talking about. I would totally make this! Maybe for more of an appetizer or snack for a group of people though.

  18. Thanks so much for this. My wife is newly vegan which sometimes makes it difficult for me to cook for her but I will definitely try this!

  19. doesn't look pretty, but I am 100% sure, that it tastes delicious.

  20. I don't get it. Where are the christmas flavors? Where is the roast? Is galette a fancy word for dairy-free, gluten-free, delicious-free, vegan pizza without cheese?

  21. Looks delicious, definitely worth the extra splurge when it is for Christmas dinner ! 

  22. Cooking isn't all about fat juicy burgers topped with bacon and 5 types of cheese, sandwiched between 2 pizzas (God I wish It was). If I was Vegan I would absolutely nom the living daylights out of it 🙂 Thanks, Anna! 

  23. vegan…..its gluten free….! When will they come up with a recipe that is food-free? 

  24. She is so cute, great food.

  25. or my cook can make me a fresh burger….

  27. Looks wonderful.  Thumbs up.

  28. Your Voice is very annoying but i like the recipe anyways

  31. i love you

  32. Actually it looks yummy. I don't know why people think this looks like shit. And it will obviously tastes good

  33. What's up with the nasty comments? This looks great and I intend to try it.

  34. As a meat eater, & never tried nut roast, that looks lovely, I'm defo giving it a try 😊

  35. I like this lady. Make her cook more things. Thank you.

  36. Definitely something different and new – but to sum up the nutritional value, this is just a lot of fat combined with some simple + some complex carbon hydrates –  but lacks the healthy and filling proteins that vegans generally have a shortage of.

  37. Wow! Love this. I will be trying this out for Christmas. Great and v informative instruction video. Sweet and very passionate, credible presenter. Love the kitchen and decorations, too! 

  38. This looks so good and I hate squash and I'm not a vegan

  40. You are gorgeous and make gorgeous food! I loved it, looks really tasty!

  42. One of the best vegan recipes I've watched. Actually looks delicious and it also seems delicious and simple – no weird ingredient that cost a fortune. Can't wait to try it 😀


  44. WHERE'S THE MEAT????

  45. who doesnt eat meat? i dont get it 

  46. Chai tea with this perchance

  47. Thank you very much for the recipe index in the thumbnail! hopefully you can put it in previous recipes as well. that would be very helpful to look for recipes for caeliac or vegan friends! separate playlists would be even more helpful :-p

  48. The squash and onions give such gorgeous color! I might try pressing the nut base into a tart pan. Looks delicious and healthy.

  49. Great recipe! I'm especially loving that incredibly versatile nut base. Could do loads of things with that.

  50. Wow Food Tube is always looking out for all their different types of viewers by providing loads of different recipes 🙂 fantastic looking nut roast, and well done to Food Tube for catering to ALL their viewers xx

  51. Tried this one today. My family loved it. I think it's a very unusual, interesting and beautiful dish to serve. Would definitely cook it in future again 🙂 Thanks!

  52. I'd let her roast my nuts all night long

  53. Mmmm three of my favourite foods. i love roasted squash, raw spinach and cashews. lovely cook btw!

  54. i cannot stand her voice.

  56. Amazing

  57. thanks foodtube for the vegan recipes!

  64. Ooooh I'll have to try this during the holiday!

  65. This looks and sounds wonderful! Pinning tis for Christmas reference. Haven't seen an Anna Jones Video before, but I'm a new fan. Great stuff, FoodTube!

  66. She looks even better than the food :p

  67. What an amazing recipe!!!! absolutely love it! beautiful beautiful colors. the veggie mix was so petty it was almost a shame making a pesto out of it. but the result was incredible! wow!
    dumb question: one could eat the squash un-peeled?

    calorie-wise speaking, all those nuts wouldn't the recipe be heavily caloric? or it would be the same as classic one?

  68. Yay for vegan recipes!

  69. It's nice to see a vegan who doesn't swear her head off cough Freelee the Banana Girl cough

  70. wanted to make this but i don't have food processor, tray and baking paper (will only live in Sydney for another 4-5 months so not bothered to buy) maybe i'll put it in the list for next year haha cheers.

  71. This is beautiful. so very simple yet creative

  72. Great recipe Anna!! Definitely on my Xmas Day Menu!!! thank you it looks delicious!

  73. Now THAT is the kind of stuff that makes me consider going vegan. Vegans are slowly getting to my heart through my stomach. 

  74. Wicked vegan alternative! I fancy making this 🙂

  75. God my mouth was watering the whole video this looks amazing!

  76. More delicious V/GF, please!

  77. Is there an actual recipe to follow? I don't know whether I'm just being blind and can't see it!

  78. Lush recipe Anna. I'm saving this one for when we go vegan for lent again, and if I can keep it up till Christmas2015, this is what I'll be eating.

  79. Soooo good to see you this side of the lens. Yur making me all kinds of hungry. #natural x

  80. are there any actual measurements? like she missed out the onion part, they just sort of appeared in the pan, and she doesnt say how many cashews??

  81. Vegan food is the best!

  82. Awesome– another gluten free recipe to try! Thanks for the GF offerings on FoodTube. Makes me excited to keep on watching and cooking!

  83. Actually made this for new years as didn't have time at Christmas and my family and I loved it!! So definitely rich in flavour! Great vegetarian recipe! Thanks

  84. Made it tonight. Delicious! I didn't have any chestnuts available in my area, so I substituted walnuts and a bit of cashew butter for moisture in the crust. I'd eat the crust by itself, it's so good! Thanks for sharing!

  85. I think using the name "roast" is a bit misleading. It looks amazing!!! But I was expecting something different as an end result. Looks more like a pizza to me, and AMAZING pizza! Just not a roast 🙂

  86. This looks so interesting 😮 curious to try it <3

  87. This is marvellous food, Anna!

  88. this does look really tasty

  89. tie your hair!

  90. B-e-a-utiful! 😀

  91. Looks amazing, thanks! When will you collaborate with Tim Shieff and the Happy Pear and make a vegan cookbook?! 😊👍🏻

  92. When you're cooking, tie your hair back.

  93. It`s a fucking pizza.

  94. I just made this today for Thanksgiving and it was delicious! Thank you.

  95. The plan is to make this tomorrow and then maybe again for Christmas! Looked all over the place for cavolo nero today but could not find it 🙁 Can I substitute it with normal kale? Chards also seem to be hard to find… (Currently living in Germany) 🙁

  96. How much salt is in this recipe ? Great for high blood pressure

  97. Please tie your hair back when preparing food.

  98. I love how clean and elegant this is. It's inspirational to find a recipe where the qualities of nuts and vegetables are boasted, instead of using somewhat (in my opinion) unconvincing meat substitutes.

  99. "Cowspiracy" and "What the health" ( Netflix / YouTube )
