This flavoursome and healthy stuffing recipe is the perfect addition to your Christmas dinner or Sunday lunch. They can be made ahead of time and freeze very well.

Makes 6 portions.


1tbsp sunflower oil

1 onion, finely chopped

100g carrots, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

100g chestnut mushrooms, finely chopped

400g/1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

100g walnuts

100g cooked chestnuts

1tsp salt

1/2tsp ground black pepper

1tsp ground ginger

1tsp ground cinnamon

2tbsp aquafaba

2tbsp psyllium husk

1tbsp sunflower oil


Heat your oven to 190c/375f/GM5.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Once the oil is hot add the onion and carrot. Fry for 10-15 minutes until the onion is translucent.

Add the garlic and mushrooms. Fry for another 5-10 minutes until the mushroom has browned.

Blend the mixture from the pan with the chickpeas, walnuts, chestnuts, salt, pepper, spices, aquafaba and psyllium husk.

Add a small amount of oil to a muffin tin. Divide the muffin batter between all the holes. Bake for 35-45 minutes until browned and cooked through.



If you want a herby stuffing simply omit the spices and replace with fresh sage leaves, thyme or rosemary.

The psyllium husk acts as a binder in this recipe but also adds moisture. You can omit it but the muffins will be a little crumbly.
