Vegetable Nut Loaf recipe

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.


  • 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


  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.

This loaf makes around 8 generous slices. Serve it hot with a sauce or serve it cooled with some cream cheese or butter.
