Spicy Chick-Peas and Rice

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by breezermom

This recipe uses cooked brown rice, but feel free to substitute white rice. Cooking time does not include the time to cook the rice. The "spicy" in the title doesn't mean hot, but simply full of flavor and seasonings. This recipe comes from America's Best Recipes 1994, Tracing our Heritage.

Wow brown rice can be good! I got a little confused with the amount of rice but it's 2 cups of cooked brown rice, not 2 cups of brown rice then cook it!
