    About this recipe: This is a great stuffing for those of us looking to cut down on our wheat intake. Chickpeas are a great substitute for bread in this recipe as they are filling, creamy and take on the flavours of the stock and vegetables, just like bread would do. You can use this recipe to stuff poultry, or cook it in its own dish.
