A Christmas table welcomes many different plates; from hot to cold, small to large, and everything you could think of in between. Although one thing’s for sure, the Christmas classics will forever have their place – like Christmas nuts for instance.
Served as a savoury appetiser with cheeses and fruits, or as a simple snack while the drinks are being served, there's always a bowl of leftover nuts after Christmas. But don't let them go to waste! These four sweet and savoury recipes will utilise any nuts you have left.
VEGAN NUTTY SAUSAGE ROLLS
Mixed nuts are folded through a mixture of tasty mushrooms and carrots, fresh herbs, and (to the surprise of many) salty Marmite! Any leftover nuts you have will work well in this vegan sausage rolls recipe.
WALNUT AND BLUE CHEESE SPAGHETTI
Sharp blue cheese gives this spaghetti dish a rich flavour, with the walnuts adding bite and a crunchy texture. A cosy winter warmer you can enjoy for a comforting lunch or dinner.
CREAMY CARAMELISED NUT TART
