The ingredients are enough for 6 hearty portions. If preferred, as it freezes well, you can cook half and freeze the other half uncooked for another day.

I make the recipe as above and freeze half unbaked for another day. This saves time in making and means we can enjoy a hearty meal after a hard day’s work outside. Just pop in the fridge to defrost for the day before going out.
Always ensure your Carrot, Parsnip and Cashew Nut Roast is properly defrosted before baking
