Chickpea Meatloaf

Looking for a meatless monday idea? We made this chickpea meatloaf with a side of mashed cauliflower, green beans, peas + snow peas. It was delicious and 75% veggie based aka fiber and antioxidant goals.

We love all kinds of meatloaf but this is an absolutely delicious plant based option!
