    I made this yesterday using the stock from cooking the chick peas instead of stock cubes and water. I whizzed 8oz chickpeas in the processor and about a minute later they looked like chick pea flour. nb I had skinned them after cooking but before processing. Used less salt, half a head of garlic and probably no more than 1 tblsp celery (not keen on the stuff anyway) otherwise quantities and ingredients as stated in the recipe. Our guests pronounced it delicious and kept the dish at their end of the table so I did not try it until lunch today. Even cold it was yum. Will definitely make again. I guess it would work using bought chickpea flour for convenience. My 8oz chickpeas made enough stuffing for the small bowl from the pyrex 3 casserole set.  -  22 Dec 2016
