Gather
  • 1 tin chickpeas
  • 3 cups cooked vegetables chopped (e.g. leeks, carrots, celery, onion)
  • 100 g mixed nuts
  • 50 g mixed seeds
  • 5 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
  • small pinch rosemary
  • small pinch ground cumin
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-4 tablespoons oats (gluten free if required)
Prepare
  1. Put the chickpeas and a bit of their liquid in a blender and pulse until you have a rough paste (some whole chickpeas is fine). Put in a large bowl.

  2. Add the vegetables and mix into the chickpea paste.

  3. Blend the nuts until you have a rough powder, then add to the vegetable mix with the seeds. Mix well.

  4. Sprinkle over the nutritional yeast, oregano, basil, paprika, garlic, rosemary and cumin and mix in.

  5. Taste test and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Check the consistency - then add the oats gradually. You are looking for the mixture to hold its shape without being too solid. 

  6. Spoon into a lined loaf tin and firmly press down, levelling the top. Bake at Gas Mark 6 (400f / 200c) for 50-60 minutes. The top should be golden to dark brown.

  7. Remove from the tin and serve immediately. Alternatively allow to cool and store refrigerated.

  8. Enjoy!
