Artichoke Heart and Basil Chickpea Bowl

[Serves 2] INGREDIENTS
1 cup brown rice
1 15oz can of chickpea or garbanzo beans (Eden Organics is a great brand)

Cook brown rice by combining 2 cups of water with 1 cup of brown rice in a pot over high heat. When the water comes to a boil, cover the pot and turn heat down to the lowest setting for 45 minutes. (Do not stir. Simply set a timer and let the rice cook.)

In a bowl mix together the beans, artichoke hearts, zucchini and basil together.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper

Fill individual serving bowls with rice and mixed greens. Spoon the bean mixture onto the greens and pour dressing over each bowl
