This hearty Chickpea Veggie Loaf is a vegan style meatloaf made with chickpeas and cannellini beans or white beans. Chickpeas in this recipe are used as a substitute to meat with a rich source of protein and I have to say the taste is great too.

A perfect way to introduce vegetables to children and ideal for when you are entertaining vegetarians.
