Garbanzo Beans with Peppers & Rice

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.

Ingredients: 

  • 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

Directions:

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.

Enjoy!
