  • 3 tablespoons reserved juice from can of chickpeas
  • 1 cup sweet or yellow onion , chopped
  • 1 cup carrots , chopped
  • 1 cup celery , chopped
  • 2 tablespoons garlic , finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt divided (see note)
  • 1 cup veggie broth , plus a drizzle of olive oil to sauté if using oil (use more broth for a more wet stuffing)
  • ¼ cup white wine (optional for added flavor)

  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C).

  2. Pulse chickpeas in a food processor until chopped into large pieces. If you don’t have a food processor you can also chop them with a knife (although it will take longer and you’ll have to chase the runaway beans).
  3. Once chopped, place in the bowl with the dried bread.
  4. Saute the onion, celery, carrots, garlic and 1 teaspoon of salt with a drizzle of olive oil, or if not using oil use about ¼ cup of the veggie broth, and white wine, if using, until they begin to soften.
  5. Add the rest of the veggie broth, rosemary, thyme, fennel seed and crushed red pepper. Let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes.
  6. Slowly add the liquidy mixture to the bowl with the dried bread and chopped chickpeas, mixing as you add.
  7. Add the reserved liquid from the can of chickpeas to the bowl and mix well.
  8. Place stuffing into a 9 x 13 baking dish. If using parmesan sprinkle it over the top.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes until nice and crisp on the top.
