I got my inperation for this recipe from The Happy Herbivore . She has some awsome recipes and I strongly suggest that you check her out.
I started this recipe by making one cup of rice with 2 1/4 cups of water, and letting simmer for about 20 minutes until all the water was absorbed and the rice was tender and ready.
While that was happening I mixed up a marinade of
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 cup water
I then soaked a can of drained chickpeas in this marinade while the rice cooked, and then while the rice cooled a little, I simmered these chickpeas in thier marinade over a low flame, and then combined the rice and the chickpeas and thier marinade for a delish dinner!
