This Mexican style bean and rice casserole is an easy option for dinner. I like to put it all together in the backing dish and all I have to do is put it in the oven before serving. It also freezes well so make some extra and have it ready to go.
Kitchari is made with mung dal beans, Basmati rice, seasonal vegetables, and spices. The mung beans are a great source of protein and provide a good amount of carbohydrates and fiber. It is also a great dish for those who have digestive problems. There ares many versions of Kitchari out there from simple to more elaborate. This recipe is pretty straight forward and easy to make.
You can eat this chickpea salad for lunch, dinner or as a snack. You can eat it over mixed greens but you can also enjoy it as is. A cup of cooked rice or quinoa stirred in is also fabulous. And if you are in a bind, this is quick and easy to make and a great crowd pleaser for a potluck. Enjoy!
Healthy chickpeas are added to slowly-cooked onions, tomatoes and freshly-ground spices to make this Chana Masala. Finished with lemon, coconut milk and cilantro, this tangy and pleasantly-spicy curry dish makes a perfect side or main course.
