CHICKPEA RICE: EASY MEAL

I shared my Airfryer Fried Chicken and Pork Chops on Instagram recently and so many of you asked about the Chickpea Rice that I served it with.   I was so surprised that so many of you requested this recipe because it’s basically a cook up but without meat.   I got to working and not only recreated the recipe but I also made a video.  If you’re not subscribed to my YouTube Channel be sure to head on over and subscribe.

I share recipes weekly like Trinidadian Corn Pie, Boil and Fry Channa and other ideas such as Spring Pantry Organization and DIY Bar.   Chickpeas is an ingredient that I cook with a lot so I tend to always have it in my pantry. I keep canned and dried chickpeas – I use canned for a quick meal and dried when I have more time.  Without further ado here is the video and recipe below.
