A comforting casserole that tastes light and fresh for summer.
Note: Measurements entered in metric units.
Preheat the oven to 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F). Combine the drained chickpeas, diced onion, chopped parsley, crumbled stock cube, lemon juice, pine nuts and grated cheddar in a bowl, and stir to combine.
In a small bowl or mug, lightly beat the egg with the milk.
Transfer the chickpea mixture to a fairly small baking dish, and press it out so that it is evenly distributed across the dish. Sprinkle liberally with black pepper. Evenly pour over the egg mixture over the top of the chickpea mixture and top with the breadcrumbs.
Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. If you would like your breadcrumbs to be a little crispier, place the dish under the grill (broiler) for a couple of minutes at the end.
Inspiration, but not the recipe, from The Kitchn.
Serve with brown rice, jasmine rice or any type of noodle: rice noodles, mung bean noodles (which are gluten free), soba noodles, ramen (without the seasoning packet)—I have even used regular pasta in a pinch. Use whatever you have on hand. I made this version completely vegetarian (even vegan) but it would be delicious with grilled shrimp, sliced chicken, or beef.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!

In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
