Chestnut, Artichoke and White Bean Roast


Another one, this time a nut and bean roast.  A little luxurious with the artichoke hearts and chestnuts, perhaps one to save for a special occasion…..?



Chestnut, Artichoke and White Bean Roast

  • White medium white onion, chopped finely
  • One clove garlic, chopped finely
  • Pack of sweet chestnuts, chopped into chunks
  • One tin of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • One tine white kidney beans, drained and rinsed (or other white bean)
  • Handful wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • Decent handful of powdered parmesan/hard cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley, sage and thyme (rosemary couldn’t make it, was gigging with Simon & Garfunkel)

Fry the onion and garlic in butter or oil for a few minutes.

Add the other ingredients, and mix well.  Mash a little with a potato masher.

Layer some foil in a baking dish, and pour in the mixture.  Form into a loaf or large sausage shape.

Wrap in the foil, and bake at 200c for 25 minutes, then unwrap and bake for 10-15 mins more.
