Red Rice, Chickpeas and Broccoli dinner

Submitted by: SILTAM

Introduction

The fresh garlic sauce is not for the faint of heart! (actually, it is. Fresh garlic is great for high blood pressure and cholesterol). It has a very potent smell and flavor, so if you don't like it you can use some salad dressing instead, or no sauce at all. The fresh garlic sauce is not for the faint of heart! (actually, it is.

Ingredients

    For the basic dish:
    3/4 cup uncooked red rice
    2 1/4 cups of water
    1 cup canned chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
    3 cups cooked and chopped broccoli

    For garlic sauce:
    1.5 cups of curd cheese
    6 large cloves of garlic
    Juice from 1.5 medium lemon, or 2 tbsp of lemon juice
    1 tsp white pepper
    Salt (about 3 dashes)

Directions

Put the rice and the water into a pot and boil for 30-45min, until ready.
Meanwhile, make the sauce: crush the garlic cloves and the pepper and the lemon. Stir gently until the mixture becomes opaque. Add the curd-cheese and taste before adding the salt. The result should be tangy and stinging.
Heat the chickpeas and broccoli just before serving.
Mix the cooked rice, chickpeas and broccoli or arrange them an appealing manner on the plate. Serve hot with the sauce in a bowl on the side.

Red rice is whole-grain rice, just like brown rice, only it's red. It is not wild rice.
You can prepare this dish with brown rice, but the dish won't be as pretty.
If you can't find red rice, try doing this with brown rice and red kidney beans or adzuki beans to keep the colors.
