Chestnuts Without the Open Fire

Roasting is the best way to enjoy chestnuts, but we’ll stick to the oven rather than an open fire. It sounds fun, but not everyone has access to open flame like that and it only adds unnecessary extra work. For those who haven’t tried roasted chestnut and only know of the dish from the popular Christmas song, you’ll be surprised to find that they have a delicate sweet flavor with the texture of baked sweet potato. They often make a good meat substitute in recipes and are great for keeping things vegan.
