From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 25 October 2019

This gorgeously rich and somehow meaty (but entirely vegan) nut mince is truly delicious, says food writer and chef Kelly Gibney.

Not only does it make a brilliant taco filling, but it can also be enjoyed in a burrito bowl, tossed through pasta as a vegetarian bolognese or as a wonderful twist on mince on toast, topped with slices of avocado.

Kelly says to make sure you take the time to really caramelise the carrot - this adds crucial depth of flavour to the finished product.
