Middle Eastern Rice & Beans

This weeks recipe is for Middle Eastern Rice & Beans and it comes from Amanda at Simply Homemade

Middle Eastern Rice & Beans

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground tumeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2-1/2 cups chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute. Stir in rice and all the spices (I measured and combined the spices in a little bowl before sauteing the garlic) cook about 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes. Gently stir in garbanzo beans and black beans. Serve over naan or flat bread and top with plain yogurt or sour cream!
