Ingredients

    The roast:

    * two tablespoons oil or margarine
    * 2 large onions, chopped fine
    * 5 cloves (or an entire bulb) garlic, minced
    * 3 cups raw cashews
    * 1 1/2 cups bread
    * 1 cup soup stock (or water)
    * salt and pepper
    * 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    * 2 tablespoons lemon juice

    The "stuffing":

    * 3 cups bread cubes, toasted
    * two tablespoons margarine, melted but not hot
    * 1/2 to 3/4 cup finely-chopped onion
    * 1 cup chopped celery
    * 1/2 teaspoon thyme
    * 1/2 teaspoon marjoram
    * 1/2 teaspoon sage
    * 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
    * salt to taste

Directions

(From the first list:) Cook the onion and garlic in the oil or margarine until tender, and remove from the heat.

Chop the cashews by hand or in a food processor; cut up the bread as well. Add the cashews and bread to the onion, then add the vegetable stock, salt and pepper, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Put half of this mixture into a small, non-stick loaf pan (or line a regular loaf pan with parchment paper if a non-stick pan is unavailable).

Mix together all the ingredients from the second list. Put the mixture on top of the stuff in the loaf pan, and add the rest of the first mixture so that there are three layers of food in the pan.

Place the pan on a baking sheet or in a larger loaf pan (in case it overflows while cooking), and bake at 400 degrees F for half an hour. The top should be browned.

Let the roast cool for a few minutes, then turn the pan over and serve the roast on a plate (or simply serve it out of the pan). Serve with gravy if desired, keeping in mind that it is a very rich dish.
