pablo (2)

This recipe is so easy and I like that the protein comes from the chickpeas and the crispiness of the panko or breadcrumbs. If you are trying to limit the meat in your diet, this is the perfect meal.

2 c brown rice

2 tbs olive oil

1 can chickepeas

1 tbs minced garlic

1 tbs cumin

Salt & Pepper to taste

1/4 c panko breading or breadcrumbs

chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  3. Add the panko or breadrumbs to the chickpeas stirring into the mixture.
