Brown Rice & Garbanzo Bean Salad

This isn't the first time I have told you about an easy side dish made with rice. Rice is versatile and can be used with so many different flavor combinations and main dishes. Here is one recipe that is takes it up a notch with the addition of the garbanzo beans.


Recipe yields 4 servings

Ingredients
1 cup long grained brown rice
1 can garbanzo beans
1 tbsp olive oil
4-5 cloves of garlic
2 tsp basil
1 lemon
2 tsp red wine vinegar


Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the brown rice until soft and plump. While the rice is cooking, mince the garlic and juice the lemon.


Once the rice is cooked, remove to a serving dish.


In a small bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, basil and garlic paste. Mix well to create your dressing. Evenly coat the rice and beans with the dressing.


Serve & enjoy!
