Chickpea Loaf With Hazelnuts

Total Time

A lovely savoury loaf with some extra crunch from hazelnuts! I made this for DH's vegetarian daughter this Christmas - it was a big hit with the carnivores, too! Recipe adapted from Kasviskasari website. ETA: Note that the potatoes must be grated very fine. The end result should be more like mash, not shreds - this way they won't be left uncooked.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak raisins (if using) for a few hours to plump them up.
  2. Preheat oven to 150°C Line a loaf pan with foil.
  3. Finely chop onion. Peel and finely grate potatoes.
  4. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Mash.
  5. Combine onion, potatoes and chickpeas. Add raisins, oil and seasonings. Mix well.
  6. Transfer mixture to prepared pan, press down gently and smooth the surface. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes.

I followed the recipe to a "T" and it didn't turn out at all. The top burned and the potatoes weren't fully cooked. Sorry.
