Chickpeas added instead of traditional meat & seafood. You could also sub extra firm tofu. This was amazing! Chickpeas added instead of traditional meat & seafood. You could also sub extra firm tofu. This was amazing!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 tbsp olive oil
    3 tsp garlic, minced
    1/2 Vidalia onion, diced
    1/2 c white wine (dry)
    1 cup rice (I used Basmati)
    3 c vegetable broth (I used Trader Joe's low sodium)
    1 red bell pepper, diced
    1 c asparagus tips
    1 c mushrooms, diced
    1 can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
    3 tsp cumin
    2 tsp Spanish paprika
    1/4 tsp saffron threads, soaked in 1/2 c boiling water for 5 minutes.
    Salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Makes 4 generous servings:

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the onion & garlic, and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and cook until toasty, about 2 minutes. Add the wine, stir until absorbed. Add 1 cup of the broth and lower the heat to medium. Keep stirring every couple of minutes until it's absorbed. Add your veggies (all except the chickpeas) and another cup of broth and stir until absorbed. Add spices and chickpeas and continue cooking and adding more broth until it's all absorbed and the rice is creamy. Taste for seasoning and add salt & pepper if desired. Plate and enjoy!
