Simone Thomas Wellness Nut Roast Nutrihome Recipe

Simone’s Nut Roast

Simone’s Nut Roast

For a lot of people nut roasts can seem uninspiring and bland, but I can guarantee this delicious recipe will be loved by all, meat lovers included. The great combination of Christmas flavours and textures (like cranberries and dried fruits) makes this roast not only filling and delicious but irreplaceable during Christmas Day celebrations. Nut roasts take less than 1 hour to prepare and are packed with antioxidants and fibre.
