By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 10 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 45 mins
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil, plus more for greasing the pan
1 1/2 cups mushrooms, button or chestnut (finely diced)
1 large onion, finely diced
1 large bell pepper, finely diced
7 oz pecans
3 1/2 oz blanched almonds
2 1/2 oz pistachio kernels
1 cup mashed sweet potato, (see recipe notes)
1/4 cup chives, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
2 flax eggs, (1 flax egg = 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 2 tbsp water, set aside for 10 minutes)
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup gluten-free flour
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp mustard, ensure vegan and gluten-free
2 tbsp tamari
1 red chilli pepper, de-seeded and finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350F) and grease a loaf pan with olive oil.
2Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan or skillet. Add the mushrooms, onion and bell pepper, and cook for 5 minutes, until they soften.
3Meanwhile, add the pecans, almonds and pistachios to a blender or food processor, and blend quickly to form a crumbly mixture.
4Transfer the cooked vegetables to a large mixing bowl together with the nuts. Add the sweet potato, chives, parsley, flax eggs, paprika, salt, cumin, garlic powder, gluten-free flour, tomato paste, mustard, tamari, red chilli pepper, and garlic. Mix together really well.
5Transfer to the loaf tin and flatten down well using a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, until crispy and golden brown on top.
6Allow to cool for around 5-10 minutes, then use a butter knife to loosen the nut roast around the edges. Place a serving board on top of the loaf pan and carefully flip upside down. Remove the loaf pan and serve.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
