Happy New Year.
I guess many of us will be glad to see the end of 2016 and try to welcome 2017 with optimism and hope. I have had an interesting year, what more can I say - it could have been better, but it was not terrible either. I am thankful. As always and as I do every year, I want to say Thank you to my loyal readers. I honestly do appreciate you for supporting and reading my 'not for profit' hobby blog and taking time to comment when you can.
I made this Savoury Chestnut, Rainbow Carrot and Lentil Cake last week a few days after Christmas. It would be perfect for the festive table, but it would also be fabulous on the table on New Years Eve or New Years Days Sunday Roast Dinner.
This Savoury Chestnut, Rainbow Carrot and Lentil Cake is inspired and adapted from one I saw in the Vegetarian Christmas magazine. I cannot remember the last time I picked up a vegan or vegetarian magazine, but the recipes were far more interesting in presentation that I was tempted to pick up a copy. Its essentially an upside down colourful nut roast. I had intended to make this for Christmas Day as I had picked up some baby rainbow carrots from the market in Cardiff. I had put them in the fridge to maintain some sort of freshness, they lasted well.
A generous slice of this Savoury Chestnut, Rainbow Carrot and Lentil Cake would be perfect next to roast potatoes, sprouts and/or other greens. And don't forget the gravy, its essential here.
I've had a good good break, a quiet affair really with just D and me. I will share more about my Christmas Day and what I got for Christmas. Wow I truly cannot believe it is 2017 and wonder what the year will bring. Anyway, lovely reader Happy New Year once again.
We had too much of this Savoury Chestnut, Ranbow Carrot and Lentil Cake left over, that I ended up putting some in en croute with puff pastry for light lunch bites. I have to admit, I did stick some cheese in the en croutes too, but that is optional. I am sharing these with Elizabeths's Kitchen for No Waste Food Challenge.
