Background Story on the Recipe
A couple of nights ago, I decided to make a late night concoction of garbanzo beans with peppers and rice. It didn’t take too long, and it was surprisingly good. That was the bonus. Thursday was a pretty busy day, and so at a certain point, I realized that I had to give myself grace, and get some of the things done that I didn’t get done that day on Friday. Worst case scenario: have a small layover on the weekend. I knew God’s grace would be enough to handle what I needed for the day. I just had to remind myself of that several times.
Watching a good movie on Pureflix after cooking this meal sounded like a great idea. However, I guess I was more tired than I thought. The next thing that I knew, I was waking up to the ending credits, and some good Christian music going. I will replay the movie tonight, as well as the movie that I fell asleep on last night: “The Shunning”, by Beverly Lewis. Guess what? I probably have a list of about 30 or more movies and television shows that I have on my “To Watch” List on my phone. This is just from Pure Flix alone.
Here is the recipe:
Activity: Making Garbanzo Beans with Peppers & Rice
Total Prepping and Cooling Time: 35 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups of rice
- Mixed Greens with garlic, Onion, and Sea Salt
- 2 cans of Garbanzo Beans
- 1/2 cup of Nutritional Yeast
- 2 tablespoons of turmeric
- 2 teaspoons of cumin
- garlic powder
- two yellow peppers
Cook the rice in two cups of water.
While the rice is cooking,
- cut up and saute the yellow peppers.
- saute the mixed greens.
- boil the beans.
When the rice is done, dump it into the mixed greens, along with the yellow peppers and all of the rest of the ingredients, adding about a cup of water to the mix.
It’s amazing how much flavor the nutritional yeast gives this recipe.
