Savory Garbanzo Bean "meat" Loaf (Chickpea)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Ilmar Simanovskis

This is a tangy loaf that has the look of a meat loaf. The flavour combinations are fantastic. Topping this with a nutritional yeast gravy provides a great finish.

Just a wonderful recipe! I, of course am unable to follow a recipe too exactly, but it lent itself well to my variations. Delicious!
(One thing I did was add sunflower seeds for texture.)
