    chef FIFI's Note:

    This is an old stand by for me, its quick and easy and can be served as a main dish or side dish. Its great with a nice middle eastern salad and a side of yoghurt and also goes well with baked lamb or roasts.This is a great potluck dish as well.Seasoning are approximate, you can adjust to suit your tastes.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Set cooked rice aside.
    2. 2
      In a pot combine onions,chopped garlic,seasonings and ground meat and brown, try to keep the meat from forming large clumps, you want it taco meat in consistency, so keep stirring often.
    3. 3
      Once its almost brown add drained can of chick peas and let meat brown.
    4. 4
      When meat is browned drain any remaining fat from pan and add rice and stir until well blended.
    5. 5
      Enjoy-- (variation to it can be to substitute chick peas for mixed can of mixed veggies).

      This is terrific and most definitely will be made many times at my house! I used ground turkey and made only a few slight changes -- I only used about 3.5 cups of rice, a whole onion, a half a red bellpepper, increased the cinnamon to about 3/4 teaspoon and I didn't add any garlic powder. Many thanks to you Chef Fifi!

      I dont know how to rate this as DH did not like the flavour of this at all! Whereas I loved it and so did DD (toddler). I used less rice for the amount of ground beef. I probably used less chickpeas too and more chopped onion than called for. Along with the allspice I used some of my own Baharat Aka Middle East Mixed Spices - the Real Mix & sea salt to taste. I did not add garlic powder or red pepper for colour as we don't like peppers much. I will not be making this again. Made for Ramadan Tag.

      I made the recipe as written—except with only 4 cups of rice, as that was all I had on hand—and it went down a treat with German coleslaw left over from our 4th of July celebrations!
