Savoury nut mince recipe

Savoury nut mince recipe

This is a very flexible recipe and is a great alternative to traditional beef mince.  Omitting red meats from your diet will help to reduce inflammation and also reduce those bad prostaglandins which are responsible for making the symptoms of pain much worse.

Nut Mince

Gluten free, meat free, dairy free

If you want to make a meal that requires savoury mince, for example, Shepherds Pie, Spaghetti Bolognaise, Savoury Mince Pie etc., then try this alternative mix.  It has a nice texture and tastes really good.  

Serves 4


  • 1 large onion
  • ½ tbs basil
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 14 oz can tomatoes
  • 8oz finely ground walnuts or hazelnuts
  • 4 oz non wheat breadcrumbs - use slightly stale bread as this makes breadcrumbs easier
  • 2 tbs chutney
  • fresh garlic - chopped
  • Salt and pepper

1   Fry onion with herbs until brown

 Add tomatoes and all other ingredients.  Cook gently for 20 minutes


You can add additional vegetables to this recipe like finely chopped carrots,  celery, red or green peppers - fry them along with the onion.  You can always add more spices and herbs to this basic recipe - this comes down to personal taste.

The mince can be used to make a hearty Shepherds Pie
