  • fresh parsley sprig
  • 2 teaspoons instant vegetable broth mix or 1 vegetable stock cube

  1. In a large pot with a tight fitting lid, sauté onion in oil.
  2. When the onion becomes golden, add the rice and stir for two minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes, water, strained chickpeas, vegetables, broth mix and the seasonings, and stir well.
  4. Cover and simmer until the rice is cooked (about 40 minutes). You may want to uncover towards the end to reduce the liquid, if necessary.
