Veggie Bean and Nut Roast

2 cups cooked and mashed chickpeas (one 19oz can)
1 1/2 cups each finely chopped carrots, celery, and parsnips (i have used turnips instead, just added a little cinnamon to the mix)
3 veggie boullion cubes or 3 tbsp veggie broth powder
3 tbsp tamari soy sauce or braggs liquid aminos
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

2 cups finely chopped onion
6 cups bread cubes
2 cups chopped mushrooms
2 cups finely ground nuts or seeds (pecans, walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds are all good)
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
3/4 cup buckwheat, whole wheat, or amaranth flour
1/4 cup arrowroot powder or chickpea flour
4 cloves garlic, minced

Steam the carrots, celery, parsnips until tender. Mash with the chickpeas and all the spices until smooth. Add the raw onion and remaining ingredients and moosh it all together with your hands. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Oil a 9x13" baking dish, line with waxed or parchment paper, and oil the paper. Scoop the roast mixture out into the pan and shape into a 3" high oblong loaf. Bake for about 90 minutes. It should remove easily from the oiled paper. Brush with flax or olive oil for a glisten-y finish. Serve on a bed of leafy greens.
