Reviews for Chickpea Potpies
"My husband and I liked all of this... except the chickpeas! We found them to be dry and didn't seem right with the rest of the filling. Next time I will add everything except the chickpeas because it's a great recipe otherwise. I made it as one big casserole, and used refrigerated crescent rolls instead of pie pastry (because I already had it on hand). I wouldn't recommend doing this because it quickly got soggy. I will stick with the pie pastry next time."
"Wonderful! I had enough filling for 5, but only had 4 ramekins. The filling makes a good stew so getting rid of it wont be a problem."
"This sounds really yummy!! Im going to try this. I used to do the bisquick one, but i like making everything from scratch.... so Thankyou for your recipeKatlaydee3, could you tell me why you wouldn't make it again? Just curious, as i am thinking of making this!!"
"Have made this multiple times now. Very good recipe even for non-vegetarians; I have 2 vegetarians and two carnivores, and dinners can be tricky. This worked for everyone, and can even be made in the crockpot with the sauce thickened on the stove. A crust of your choice can be baked separately, tho we often do this without a crust and serve over egg noodles."
"This got rave reviews from my just turned vegetarian grandson. Didn't have pie crust so I used crescent rolls on top, no hash browns so I subbed with a diced potato partially cooked. Thanks for the recipe. Will def make again!!"
