Chickpea as well as Veggie Meatloaf
Right currently I’m trying to base a lot of my meals on vegetables, as I need to get back to healthy eating after Christmas, as I am sure many others do too. I am following WeightWatchers Flex at the moment, as well as on This specific chickpeas (as well as bean, tofu as well as lentils) are currently zero points. So what better excuse to make a healthy chickpea meatloaf. This specific can be meat-free, filling as well as very low in points on WeightWatchers Flex, at only 3 SmartPoints for the whole thing.

I was vegetarian when I was a teenager as well as still enjoy a lot of vegetarian dishes to This specific day. Have a look in my Vegetarian section of my recipe index for all my veggie recipes, including lots of slow cooker vegetarian dishes. What I loved about This specific chickpea meatloaf was that will This specific was so easy to put all the ingredients together, then blend in my food processor, as well as then bake. Just get the ingredients together, whizz, as well as you are almost there. This specific contains chickpeas, sweetcorn, red as well as green peppers as well as roasted vegetables so can be full of veggie goodness.

Once baked, This specific chickpea meatloaf can be golden brown, which has a wonderful texture as well as can be full of flavour. The outside forms a crust as well as the inside remains soft after cooking, firming up if you leave This specific to stand for longer or reheat the next day. I enjoy This specific both warm, as part of a main meal, as well as also cold with salad as well as a wrap. As This specific can be based on chickpeas This specific can be filling as well as high in protein, as well as being low in calories.

If you are looking to improve your veggie meals, you should try This specific chickpea meatloaf, especially if you have got into a rut with serving the same meals each week. This specific makes a lovely change coming from curries, bolognese as well as chilli, those favourite family dishes.
