Garbanzo Loaf

Here's a very versatile recipe that can be made into a spread or entree. Adding to it's versatility are optional ingredients that can be added in while making it a spread.

1 lg onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped
2 C cooked garbanzos (may use can but drain)
1/2 C peanut butter
1 C cooked Spanish style tomatoes
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp sage
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 to 1 tsp seasoned salt
1 C seasoned bread crumbs

Saute onion and green pepper in small amount of water until soft. Place onions and green pepper in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients blending until smooth. Place mixture into a well sprayed 9 by 13 inch pan. Bake at 350° for a minimum of 1 hour to a maximum of 1 and 1/2 hours. If using for a spread be careful not to over dry mixture in the oven. If using as an entree bake for 1 hour.

After cooling, break up loaf and mash with regular or soy mayo, chopped celery, olives, pickles, etc., to make spread. Loaf can also be frozen for use later.
