Chickpea, Cucumber, and Rice Bowl
“If you don’t feel like slaving away in the kitchen but aren’t willing to eat just anything, here’s a fantastic bowl of nutritious goodness that will do the trick. You’ll love it!”
1 small jar
If you don’t have any cooked rice in your fridge, start by making the rice. To do this, put a tablespoon of olive oil into a pan and heat. Then slice up a garlic clove and add. When the garlic starts to color, add the rice. Stir for a couple of minutes and then add 2 cups hot water and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook over high heat for 5 minutes, then reduce and simmer for 10 more minutes. If the rice has absorbed all the water in this time but is still hard, add a little more water. Let stand for a few minutes.
While the rice is cooking, prepare the other ingredients. Wash and halve the cherry tomatoes. Wash and slice the cucumber into rounds or cut into dice. Mince the onion and rinse the chickpeas under running water.
Put the rice into a dish or salad bowl and add the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and chickpeas. Dress with oil and a drizzling of lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
