One of the fun things about commiting to eat healthy is perusing all the recipes. This TAHINI RICE recipe is modified from one I found on What Happens in my Kitchen… I made it with the chickpeas I sprouted (yum yum, scroll down for a pic) and leftover rice/quinoa. It is delicious by itself, or in a wrap (such as a warm corn tortilla).
FOR THE RICE
1 cup brown rice cooked – I like mine with a handful of quinoa tossed in while it’s cooking
1 cup chickpeas – I like to soak & sprout my own, fresher & healthier than out of the can
handful of tomatoes , diced – prefer the local & organic variety
handful of sundried tomatoes, chopped
couple inches of cucumber, diced – skins removed
handful of almonds (or any kind of nut) – chopped
Mix together in large bowl
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 c chopped red onion
juice from 1 medium lemon
couple tablespoons water
Whisk together, adding more water (1 tablespoon at a time) if needed
Mix with rice & serve.
