  • Stir the chickpeas into the tomato sauce and season with black pepper and
    salt to taste. Ensure the mixture is veering towards sloppy, otherwise
    the cooked crumble will be a little dry.
  • Put the tomato mixture into a greased ovenproof dish and top with the crumble.

Sides

    small roasting pan and toss with a little oil, salt and pepper.

    I made this with aduki beans instead of chick peas, a bit of leek top with the onion – I never waste the green tops – and cashew nuts rather than peanuts. Served with roasties and cabbage with onion, it made a very tasty Sunday lunch. Thank you for all your lovely recipes. I shall be cooking lots more, I know!

    glad you liked it 🙂

    I love savoury crumbles, and having discovered them, I’ve made several different types now. Sort of like eating a pudding, but it’s good for you!

    Let me know how you get on with Week One!

    Nearly 4 years after the first post and I made this chickpea crumble tonight. It is fabulous. 🙂 I’m giving Meal Plan 1 a whirl, tweaking/freezing extra portions as there’s just me to cook for. I’m actually looking forward to the rest of the delicious week. 😀

  7. Lesley

    Surprisingly ok, hahahaha, thanks…..I think !

  8. Tightwad Trace

    I nearly skipped this one, but I must say the ChickPea Crumble is surprisingly OK. It was the cheddar wot swung it …. and a blob of ketchup. Thanks!
