DIRECTIONS

  • In a food processor, puree onion with garlic. In a large bowl, combine onion mixture, beef, chickpeas, breadcrumbs, egg, chili sauce, mustard, Worcestershire, hot pepper sauce, cumin, salt, pepper and parsley. Knead together lightly.
  • Transfer to a 9 - 5 loaf pan and smooth top. Bake in at 350°F oven for 45 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted into centre of loaf reads at least 160°F.
  • To prepare topping, combine chili sauce with mustard; spread over the loaf. Bake, uncovered for 30 minutes.
  • Note: For smaller portions, divide the loaf into 2 smaller loaf pans. Cooking time is the same. I used the food processor to chop up the chickpeas. I am not a fan of store bought (dried out) bread crumbs, so I used 3 slices of flax seed bread. Regular or whole wheat bread could be used.
