Directions

For rice: Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the Basmati, flax seeds, 1/2 cup chopped onions, garlic and salt. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook until the rice is tender and has absorbed all of the liquid. 15-20 minutes. (If using a rice cooker, combine the ingredients in the rice cooker, stir, and cook according to manufacturer's instructions)
For the beans: Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the other 1/2 cup chopped onions and saute until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add the garbanzo beans, thyme and chicken broth. Turn the heat down to low and cook until the flavors have melded and the liquid has reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

Transfer the rice to a large mixing bowl. Add the garbanzo bean mixture and mix to combine. Serve immediately.
