Very tasty. I served it with marinara sauce. Wow. Now all that said here are some comments I'd like to make. I took it out of the oven after an hour, as the recipe calls for, and it was not really done. But since it is nothing but chickpeas and veggies that was harmless. But next time I'm going to cook it a bit longer. It calls for "savory". I looked for that at two different stores, and couldn't find it. So I left it out. It calls for terragon. I used fresh terragon. Maybe they intended ground dried terragon. I didn't mash the chickpeas as they say. I just put two cans (after rinsing) in my KitchenAid mixer and let it run 10 minutes. Very nice.
i made this dish for my first vegetarian christmas (i'm currently experimenting with vegan recipes) and... well, it wasn't the best. it held its form after baking but got mushy when being cut. it was too "veggie" too me, maybe there were too much carrots? i sliced some leftovers, coated them in a flour, salt & pepper mixture and pan-fried them, which was a bit better. i think the carrots should be substituted with some other vegetable, or should be totally omitted.
I liked this loaf more than DD, who I'd made it for. I'm averaging our ratings. It was quite easy to make. I loved how it kept its shape when removed from the loaf pan.
I am sorry to say I didn't like this. The herbs completely overpowered everything and caused the dish to be bitter. (I used dried herbs). Thanks anyway!
A lovely tasting dish, mild with lots of flavor! Thanks! Made for Zaar tag.
