Soak the lentils overnight or for at least six hours in warm water. Then, boil the lentils for 30 minutes until ready. 2. In the meantime, cut the onion, garlic and ginger. Add olive oil in a pan to low medium heat and add all three. Let them simmer and develop their flavor for around 10 - 12 minutes. 3. Add the spices into the pan: 2 tsp of ground nutmeg, 1 tsp of cloves, 2 tsp of cinnamon and 2 tsp of cardamom. Mix well, then add the tomato paste and vegetable stock. Combine all well and set it aside. 4. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). 5. Drain the boiled lentils with water and add to your mixing bowl. With a fork or potato masher, mash them into an even paste. Then add the chickpea flour and the warm spice mixture from the pan. Combine everything well with your hands. 6. Next, cut the paprika into thin cubes and add together with the corn into the lentil mixture. Combine everything again. If you find it the mixture too wet and not sticky enough, adjust by adding more chickpea flour. 7. Line a baking form with baking parchment, add the mixture and even it out. Add the form into the oven for around 45 minutes. 8. Prepare the glaze for the coating: Mix 2 tbsp of olive oil with 2 tbsp of agave juice. 9. Take the puff pastry out of the fridge and line them on your kitchen. Overlap them on the long side. 10. Take the loaf out of the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Keep the oven running. Take the roast out of the form and place it in the middle of the puff pastry. 11. Coat the sides of the pastry with your glaze mix, then wrap each side of the puff pastry around the roast. Fold the ends in. Now, add the roast back in the oven for another 20 minutes until the puff pastry gets a golden colour. 12. Take it out and let it cool. Serve with vegan Christmas gravy, red cabbage and potato dumplings.
