This was inspired by a recipe for ham pilaf I made many years ago that we always liked. Here it is updated so it is in keeping with a Nutritarian eating style.

This turned out great for us! We don't eat alot of chickpeas so this was a wonderful way to get them in our diet. I used edamame instead of green peas. Made for PAC Spring 2014.
