Vegetable Nut Loaf

This yummy nut loaf is absolutely full of vegetables, making it great for serving to any reluctant children. The combination of walnuts and sunflower seeds is an unusual but tasty one, packing the loaf full of fibre. Serve the loaf with a spicy marinara sauce for extra flavour.

Ingredient List:
300g grated carrots
200g chopped celery
2 small onions, chopped
75g mushrooms
1 small green pepper
5 eggs
175g wholemeal breadcrumbs
75g chopped walnuts
45g sunflower seeds
1 tbsp. butter
Salt and pepper
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano

Directions:
1) Prepare a loaf tin with non-stick cooking spray and greaseproof paper.

2) Finely chop the onion, mushrooms and pepper together so that they are all roughly the same size.

3) Heat the butter in a pan until foaming. Fry the onion, mushrooms and pepper until softened. Combine with the carrots, celery, eggs, chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, salt and pepper, basil and oregano. Once completely combined, stir in the breadcrumbs.

4) Press the mixture into the tin and bake in a 180C oven for 1 hour, until completely cooked through.
