Meat Free Mondays!

Mushroom & Chickpea Loaf ~ simply sumptuous!

I’ve been so busy this summer, with B&B guests, and Pamper Day clients as well as my usual massage clients that it’s been difficult to keep up with all the Monday’s that have passed between now and my last Meat Free Monday post!


Even our guest for supper took this photo! As it begins to quieten down though, I hope I’ll have more time to test & post my recipes and to tempt you with some delicious photography!

In the meantime, here’s the recipe for this simply sumptuous moist mushroom loaf…

500 gms button mushrooms; 400 gms cooked chickpeas, drained; 2 medium onions; 100 gms wholemeal breadcrumbs; 1 handful of pitted black olives; 1 handful of fresh spinach leaves; 1 handful fresh tarragon; heroic grind of black pepper.

Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 4(180C). Loosely chop all ingredients, then blend together in a processor in batches. Spoon into a greased and lined loaf tin, smooth the top and bake for 30 to 40 minutes.

That’s it! How easy is that? Serve with a tomato salsa, crusty bread and some good friends!


Bon Appétit!
