Delicious Pecan Nut Roast that I took with me to the Potluck...

I know that this photo of a pecan nut roast doesn't make it look too wonderful, but I had to crop the picture because the "diners" at the Church had done a pretty good imitation of the tearing apart of a wild food animal.  Whatever-- it is still yummy!  The leftovers went home with two guys who don't do much cooking...

Measure and assemble the following ingredients:
  • 4 C. Water
  • 1 C. Pecan Halves (or pieces)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 T. Chicken-style Seasoning (Optional)
  • 1 T. Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 C. Chopped Onions
  • 3 C. Rolled Oats

  1. Blend together: Water, Pecans, Salt, Chicken-Like Seasoning, Nutritional Yeast.
  2. Add the blended items to a bowl.  Then ad in the onions and oats.   Let stand for at least 30 minutes.
  3. I laid down a layer of Parchment Paper in my pan-- you could just dust it with flour  
  4. Spoon in the pecan nut roast and cover it with foil.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 F., 175 C.
  6. Take off the foil and let it brown for another 20 minutes or so
  7. Let roast cool before cutting.
  8. If you are baking this in advance of the actual eating of it, you might want to do the final browning later, closer to the eating.
  9. Enjoy with a nutty gravy or miso gravy or a tomato sauce... slice it thin the next day for eating in sandwiches....  dice into spaghetti sauce...  any other ideas?
