Winter Season’s Greetings! Christmas in July is here and this wholesome roast of nuts is a perfect alternative to the traditional meat roast.
This dish has become a favourite of my friends and is at the top of the menu list every Christmas in July!

2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 onion, finely diced
1 leek sliced
1 carrot grated
1 stick celery, diced
3 cups mushrooms, diced
Salt and pepper to season
1 cup fresh bread, pulled into tiny pieces
½ cup plain flour
2 Tbspn sage/rosemary/thyme diced
2 Tbspn parsley, chopped
½ cup grated cheddar cheese
½ tspn nutmeg (freshly grated is divine!)
