Having some Chickpeas to use up, I decided to spice them up with some Middle Eastern Spices. This dish was delicious & my partner agreed…..happy days!
I also love this dish as its a one pot cooking meal which means less washing up….lol!
250g Scottish Beef Mince
200g Tinned Chickpeas
400g Tinned tomatoes
200g Red Kidney beans or you can use Black beans
250ml Beef Stock
70g Rice (Basmati is good, but I had some Red and wild rice left)
1 tsp Dried garlic granules
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Ground Coriander
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Dried coriander leaf (fresh if you have it)
1 tsp Dried parsley (fresh if you have it)
Salt & Pepper
- Heat a little spray oil in a pan and brown the mince, remove with a slotted spoon, set aside.
- Put Rice, Garlic, Ground coriander, Cumin & Turmeric into pan and coat the rice. Add the Beef stock, bring to the boil then simmer for about 15-20 minutes until rice is softened.
- Add back to the pan the mince along with the chickpeas, tin tomatoes & kidney beans, mix through. Heat through uncovered for about 5 minutes.
- Add the parsley & coriander if fresh to serve. If using dried, add with the beans etc.
