Chickpeas Bowl with a Fresh Salad
“Why spend a ton of money on lunch when you can prepare it at home with easy ingredients that can be found in any grocery store? This recipe is splendid and can be made for any occasion.”
Start by preparing the rice. For this, add a tablespoon of olive oil in a pot, and once it is hot, add the sliced clove of garlic. When it begins to lightly brown, add the rice. Stir it for a couple of minutes before adding the hot water with a pinch of salt. Cook over high heat for 7 minutes and then turn down the heat to low and cook for 8 more minutes. If in this time, it absorbed all of the water and is still hard, add more water. Let it sit for a little bit.
Wash the tomato and dice into medium size pieces. Wash and slice the cucumber and rinse the spinach.
Mix the oil, vinegar, yogurt, and mustard in a bowl. Add a finely chopped garlic clove and a pinch of salt and pepper to the sauce bowl and mix well.
Add 2 teaspoons of this mixture to the chickpeas.
Place the rice, chickpeas, and the vegetables you have just cut onto a plate. Dress this bowl with the rest of the sauce you prepared.
