And we’re back with another veggie feast – this time from our New Year celebrations! Just as with the Christmas food, we have a set schedule for our meals at this time of year. On New Year’s Eve we have a massive buffet with finger food to enjoy. Then on New Year’s Day we sit down to a two-course meal with starters and mains. Throw in copious amounts of champagne and other celebratory drinks and it’s a party!
We’re all about Sunday lunch at the moment. There’s just something so satisfying about fresh, crunchy vegetables doused in gravy, and combined with fluffy Yorkshire puddings. Then there’s the main event, the piece de resistance – in this case, a delicious carrot and hazelnut loaf. I picked this recipe up from a cookbook I’ve had since my student days, then tweaked it around a bit to my tastes. It’s amazing what you can find in books you’ve had for years!
Recently we decided it was time to do the proper Sunday lunch thing. Let’s have a traditional veggie nut loaf, we thought – something to enjoy with roast veggies and mash! I tracked down this amazing recipe, which was so easy to make and so, so rewarding. Give it a try if you are after that classic Sunday dinner that is going to last you days and days!
