Nohutlu Pilav

A common street food in Turkey, this chickpea pilaf is incredibly easy to make and only has three main ingredients!

Serves 4

What you need:

2 tbsp margarine
1 onion, diced
2 cups long-grain rice
4.5 cups vegetable broth, hot
2.5 cups cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1.5 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

In a large pan on high heat, melt the 2 tbsp margarine. Add the diced onion and sauté for five minutes. Add the uncooked rice and stir for a little over a minute so that it is well coated with margarine. Pour the vegetable broth into the pan along with the salt and pepper and reduce to medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Add the cooked chickpeas to the rice and cook for another 5 minutes or until all of the broth has been absorbed by the rice. You may need to raise the heat at the end if there is still liquid left in the rice. Serve immediately.
