Soy and quinoa country roast with cranberry compote and crushed pistachio crust
Makes: 4-6 servings
Cooking time: 1 hour
For the cranberry compote
200g dried cranberries
100ml orange juice
30g caster sugar
Simmer the cranberries, orange juice and caster sugar in a small pan until the sugar dissolves. Add a little water- around 100ml- and continue to heat until the cranberries soften and begin to break down into a compote.
When you have a sticky, thick consistency, take the cranberries off the heat and set aside.
For the pistachio crust
100g shelled pistachios, chopped down into crumb-size
1 tbsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp herbs de Provence
Salt and pepper
In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients to form a crumbly mixture and set aside.
Assembling the roast
- Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease and line a baking tray.
- Remove all the packaging, including the foil container, from the Fry’s Soy & Quinoa Country Roast, and place in the middle of the baking tray.
- Slowly pour the cranberry compote over the roast so it covers all three exposed sides (as well as tasting great, this will provide a glue for the pistachio crust to stick to).
- Now gently pat the pistachio crust mixture onto the country roast, making sure it sticks to the sides as well as the top. You can really compress it to get as much of the crust on as possible.
- With any extra crust, pat it onto the base of the roast so any juices from the cranberries will bake into the crust and make even more good stuff to share.
- Roast for thirty minutes and then check on the roast. The nuts will burn quite easily so you’ll need to keep an eye on it after this time. If it’s getting too dark, just cover in foil, then roast for a further 15-20 minutes until it’s really crisp (but not burnt!).
