Here it is, the main part of your vegan Christmas dinner - the nut roast! This recipe is brought to you from The Vegan Society and for someone like me, who is definitely not very good at complicated and long recipes, this one looks rather easy for a main meal. Apart from a couple of DIY posts, there'll be no more food posts until Friday 8th January 2016, so I can work on both my coursework for uni and on some other ideas, so I wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
