A Delicious Rice Dish That's Not Fried
It can be hard to come up with fresh twists on rice as a main course, but this Eastern European dinner is one we hadn't tried before. It's a twist on plov (also known as pilaf), omitting the traditional lamb, which can take awhile to become tender, relying instead on quick-cooking chickpeas for protein, making it an ideal weeknight entrée. Warm spices, including coriander and cumin, add nice depth.
