READY IN: 1hr 10mins


  • 3
    (16 ounce) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1
    large onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 3
    large carrots, grated (about 2 cups)
  • 1
    head broccoli, cut into small florets (about 4 cups)
  • 2
    tablespoons chives, thinly sliced
  • 12
    cup breadcrumbs (preferably whole wheat)
  • 3
    tablespoons olive oil
  • 1
    teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In large bowl, mash the chickpeas well, using a potato masher or a firm fork; it takes about 2 minutes to get the right consistency. Add vegetables and mix well. Add the bread crumbs and mix, then add the oil and mix again. Finally, add teh vegetable broth and salt, mix one last time. Transfer all ingredients to a 9 x 13 casserole dish (glass or ceramic is best). Press the mixture firmly into the casserole. Cover with foil, bake 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 more minutes. Serve it hot the day you cook it, but it tastes good cold as well.
