2 tbsp extra virgin , plus extra for greasing

4 tbsp butter

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried sage

1 lemon, finely grated zest only

4 tbsp milk alternative, such as soy or almond

100g (3.5oz) fresh breadcrumbs

1 tsp sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

How to prepare

In a food processor, blitz the nuts and stock cube on the pulse setting until the nuts are chopped into small bits but not completely crushed. If you don't have a food processor, finely chop all of the nuts.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. 6. Lightly grease and line the bottom of a 900g pan with baking paper.

In a large frying pan, heat the oil and gently cook the onion, corn, celery, leek, mushrooms, carrots, and pepper for 5 minutes, or until softened, turning often. Cook for a few seconds more after adding the garlic.

Stir in the cashew nut butter in a mixing dish. Combine the chopped nuts, Pickled Walnuts, , lemon zest, milk, breadcrumbs, and salt in a mixing bowl. Season generously with ground black pepper and stir until fully combined.

Spoon the mixture into the loaf pan that has been prepared. Firmly press down with a spoon to compress the mixture. Bake for 30 minutes, covered with foil. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the loaf is hot and gently browned throughout.

Remove the loaf from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes to cool before loosening the edges with a table knife and putting it out onto a board or tray. Serve hot with vegan gravy and thick slices.
