Hello, been veggie my whole life but never made a nut roast so can't help there! We do do a lentil roast if that is any help that is tasty or BBC good food do a mushroom Wellington with puff pastry that looks really good! Let me know if you would like my recipe for lentil roast!

Hello Mama! So for the lentil roast you cook 6oz of green lentils until soft (but not too mushy!) then leave to drain thoroughly and then mash. Into that you stir a small cooked onion/ clove of garlic chopped finely/ about 6 or so mushrooms peeled and chopped thickly/ half a red or green pepper chopped/ I generous large desert spoonful of tomato purée and a tsp of mixed dried herbs. Mix well, spoon into Pyrex dish and top with a nice full flavoured cheese, I like extra strong! Cook for 25 mins at about 200 degrees (180 degrees fan oven) and then serve! It's lovely with roast potatoes and gravy! It's an old family recipe, doesn't look like much but tastes lovely! grin

That was meant to say 1 dessert spoonful! Oh and it serves 4 if you are having it as part of a large roast dinner with all the trimmings!
