Chickpea Stuffing

    1 hour

    Since starting a low-carb diet, I wanted to make a great stuffing without bread. I think I have come close. This is a lot better than I even thought it would be!

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a glass baking dish with cooking spray.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan. Cook the mushrooms, garlic, celery and onion in the olive oil 3 to 5 minutes. Add the water and stock cubes; cook and stir until the stock is dissolved.
    3. Combine the chickpeas, egg, sage, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mash together with your hands until thoroughly mixed; stir in the vegetable mixture; transfer to the prepared baking dish. Cover with aluminium foil.
    4. Cook in preheated oven 30 minutes; remove the foil and cook uncovered another 10 to 15 minutes.

    Nice low-carb addition instead of the real stuff! I added waterchesnuts to the veggies. I also used poultry seasoning instead of sage, and added onion powder. I didn't add salt bc I try to cook without it. I used about 2/3 cup of low sodium chicken stock instead of water and boullion. I used the flat side of a spoon to smoosh the garbanzo beans and spices together, which seemed to work better (and was cleaner) than using my hands. I found that it needed longer in the oven; I liked it browned on top. Served with turkey tenderloin and green beans. Will make again!  -  02 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for my family on Thanksgiving. It was very good. However, if I made it again I would cut down on the amount of sage used.  -  21 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We've never been big on bread stuffings, but we love chickpeas, so we decided to give this recipe a try for Thanksgiving. It was a keeper! The leftovers tasted even better the next day. I've already been asked to share the recipe. Thanks!  -  30 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
