Chinese Style Chickpea Rice

Happy hump day guys! It’s finally Wednesday which means we are halfway to the weekend – what better way to celebrate this than to make a homemade cooked warm meal that is a combination of tasty, healthy and full of flavors!

This dish contains healthy carbs from the basmati and wild rice, proteins and fibre from the chickpeas and all the vitamins and amazing nutrients from the spices and vegetables! An explosion of flavor in your mouth if I say so myself.



For 1 person

125g basmati and wild rice

50g chickpeas

30g mushrooms

20g beans

3 brocoli florets

1 spring onion

1 brown onion

1/2 red pepper

1 teaspoon ginger, 1 teaspoon pepper

3 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp yoghurt



Start by cooking your rice according to package instructions.

Finely chop all your vegetables. In a pan, add 1 tbsp of olive oil and add it all your vegetables. Season with some pepper.

Halfway through cooking, add the chickpeas (previously soaked in water and cooked / or from a can rinsed and drained).

Add the ginger and soy sauce and bring to medium heat. Cover and let simmer for 10 mins.

Add the yoghurt and stir everything well. The yoghurt will bring thickness to the dish which just brings out all the other flavors.

Once ready, plate your rice and add your delicious mixture on top. Sprinkle some sesame seeds and add some cilantro on top.

You’re ready to enjoy this amazing meal!

Until the next recipe,
