Remember, if you’re making regular rice rather than instant or quick cooking, it’s going to take about 40 minutes. Start it first, before you begin chopping the onion, and it will be done right on time.
You can skip the bell pepper and sunflower seed toppings on this dish, no problem.
I use the same bowl to toss the spinach that I used for the onion and chickpeas. You don’t even need to wipe it out- it’s olive oil all around.
