Recipe Ingredients for Middle Eastern Rice with black beans & chick peas

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup uncooked basmati rice
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
32 oz vegetable stock
4 cups chick peas
4 cups black beans
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (1 bunch)
1 salt to taste
1 ground black pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Middle Eastern Rice with black beans & chick peas

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.

  2. Stir in garlic, and cook 1 minute.

  3. Stir in rice, cumin, coriander, turmeric, and cayenne pepper.

  4. Cook and stir 5 minutes, then pour in vegetable stock.

  5. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30+ minutes or until liquid is absorbed. The original recipe called for 20 minutes but I have found that it takes quite a bit longer.

  6. Drain and rinse Chick Peas and black beans.

  7. Gently mix garbanzo beans, black beans, cilantro into the cooked rice. Season with salt and pepper.
