Ingredients

    *Scallion-- 1 whole, diced with white bulb and greens separated
    *Green chile of your choice (fresh or canned)-- 2 tbsp
    *Garlic-- 1 tbsp, minced
    *Tofurkey Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Sausage-- 2 whole, cut down the middle and sliced into 1/2" pieces
    *Baby arugula-- 4 cups
    *Chickpeas-- 1 1/2 cups
    *Not-Chik'n Low Sodium Bouillon Cubes-- 1 cube
    *Crushed red pepper flakes-- to taste
    *Brittnie's Vegan Cashew Parmesan- 2 tbsp (see recipe here: http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/recipe_details.asp?nutrition_id=64704268)

Directions

1) Cook wild rice with water in a rice cooker or pot in a 1:4 ratio. (Follow instructions on the rice package)
2) Once the rice is cooked, remove it from heat.
3) In a large pan, saute the whites of the scallion, green chile, and garlic on medium-high heat with just enough water to keep everything from sticking to the pan.
4) Once the scallion whites are translucent, add the sausage.
5) Cook the sausage until it browns, stirring regularly.
6) Add the arugula and another approximately 1 tbsp of water. Stir until the water evaporates.
7) Add the chickpeas. Combine all ingredients, and then remove the mixture from heat. Place the mixture into a separate bowl, and keep the pan you used to cook everything.
8) Line the pan with about 3/4" of water and dissolve the bouillon cube in it, on high heat.
9) Add the cooked rice to the pan and stir thoroughly. Cook on high heat until the liquid evaporates.
10) Combine the rice with the other ingredients. Stir completely.
11) Top the recipe with cashew parmesan, diced scallion greens, and crushed red pepper.
12) Enjoy! You'll love it.
