Garlic & chili, broccoli, chickpeas & rice bowl

Garlic & chili, broccoli, chickpeas & rice bowl

A nice and easy meal to keep you light and healthy before the festive season.  Broccoli are rich in sulfur which helps the liver detoxification, while chickpeas are rich in vegetable proteins to keep you full and energetic for longer.

The rice I used is the Waitrose brown Basmati, wild & red rice, but I would suggest to use a small quantity as the chickpeas are also rich in slow release carbs, so you won’t need much. The garlic, chilli and extra-virgin good quality olive oil, also provide healthy fats, polyphenols and vitamin E.
