First pre-heat your oven to 180°C/360°F/Gas Mark 4 and grease and line a 450g (1lb) loaf tin. Then take a large pan and place the butter and olive oil on a low light until the butter is melted and mixed with the oil. Add the chopped onion and cook on a low light until the onions are translucent.
Tip the onions in to a bowl and add the nuts, sage, allspice, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and stir to combine, mix in the eggs and make sure that everything is easily combined. If the mixture is too dry add a little milk or soya milk to moisten it.
Put the nut roast mix in to your greased loaf tin, pressing it down and levelling it off, bake in your pre-heated oven for 40-50 minutes, check towards the end of the cooking time to make sure that the nut roast isn’t getting too brown. Slice and serve with all the trimmings.
